In an interview with Rolling Stone, the My Chemical Romance lead singer explains that while he considers DC his current comics "home," he's not exclusive to the publisher.

"I still have an amazing relationship with Dark Horse Comics," Way says. "'Umbrella Academy' - so that book is coming out. I'll always love my Dark Horse family. I'm not exclusive with DC, but at the same time, I'm doing so much work right now, I can't really see doing anything else. I'm very invested in this imprint, so I'm going to devote a lot of attention to that, and I'm here for the long haul with it. I want Young Animal to be something that does stick around. I want this to be the start of a lot of different great, interesting, experimental books for DC and DCU characters and superheroes."

In addition to writing "Doom Patrol," which he says "will draw from all of the continuity and all of the [previous] writers' runs," Way is co-writing "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye" and "Mother Panic" for DC's Young Animal.
