My first encounters with the Doom Patrol were years after they had a title and Robotman was guest starring in New Teen Titans. From there, I jumped on Grant Morrison's run on their new series but I never bothered to track down any of the original material. Until now.The Doom Patrol is comprised of Robotman, a human brain inside a robot body, Elasti-Girl, a former actress who can grow and shrink at will, and Negative Man, a former pilot who can project a body composed of radio waves from his body [...]

Though there are "cooler" and sexier sounding (in my opinion) names for rag tag or organized teams of adventurers in the vast universe of comic book manufactured (or inspired) super heroes than "Doom Patrol" it still remains one of my personal favorites because it sounds good to the ear and sums up (with no knowledge of symbolism or word play needed) their mission statement to the tee.Sidenote* -Before I get into the (I hope relatively spoiler free) review I want to point out that it's been long [...]

The Doom Patrol has been called by comics fans to be the best Marvel book DC created. Its easy to see why. While most DC heroes are rather static good guys, the Doom Patrol has to be prodded initially into doing good, has issues with themselves, and even bickers. While it is odd for readers of later incarnations to see The Chief as just a good humanitarian, it is also fun seeing the team form, seeing Mento and Beast Boy (who retains his pompadour haricut regardless of his form) for the first tim [...]

i wrote a really elaborate review and a bad connection basically ate it. In essence, a good use of dramatic tension in the socially ostracizable origin stories of all the characters, combined with effectively captiazing dramatic stories, make this the best early era DC collection I've ever read. Beast Boy, with a combination of sense of humor and elaborate ability to transform into any creature he wants as well as a tortured backstory as an orphan with an evil legal guardian, is really effective [...]

3 stars for the stories, 4 stars for the art and zany concepts (how can you not be amused by names like Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man, Negative Man, or the Brotherhood of Evil?). Like most Silver Age comics, probably best taken in small doses. Fearing I'd never get back to it if I stopped, I read it cover-to-cover, though. The stories are fun for their cheesiness, but get boring and repetitive after awhile.

While the stories in this are in black-and-white, it doesn't really matter: when you've got Bruno Premiani handling the art chores, it is going to look fantastic! This Showcase Presents featured the first twenty or so adventures of the original Doom Patrol, along with the first appearances of Beast Boy and Mentor. Very recomended!

Wonderful revisit to these heroes that could have been great. The writing still works despite some obvious gender issues and the building of a dynasty that was definitely happening between the heroes and villains. The strength is he characterization of our main team and the bond that they share.

Love the Doom Patrol! The original dysfunctional super hero team.So glad DC is doing these inexpensive collections.

Most fun I've had with a comic in a long time.
