HOSHWE reviewed Doom Patrol #7 Jul 26, 2017
8.5

This was a weird and awesome issue...but, maybe leaning a bit more to the weird. I find the pace was too quick when the doom patrol was in the Scantoverse, though i liked how all of this was just to display how Niles Caulder is a hotmess. This issue is more of a set-up for this current story arc which i think has to do with $#!+.

I love this issue, black dawn concludes with the good guys winning and doesn't make the same mistake of killing off Manchester black(He's stuck in a cow's body). But it still didn't explain Lois's leg being back(got heat visioned by supes -0.7) and what that black ooze is(the black symbiote-looking thing Manchester black was using -1). SCORE: 8.3/10
