The Doom Patrol just met The Aristocrats, and how better to follow a punchline than with some actual punching? The world's strangest Super Heroes face off with the world's most horrific family and they've never had a fight like this before!

    In a way, its fitting that the Doom Patrol, the team that can never catch a break, dont get much out of their harrowing experience, as long as the experience itself has some fun and thrills, which it does. Heres looking forward to the Patrol getting higher-stakes adventures in the future. Read Full Review

    Giffen's voices for the characters herein are rocksteady, and as always, Larry Trainor is present with a few chuckle-worthy lines. Thinking about this a bit more, "Doom Patrol" is the one book, month in and month out, that I can count on for a chuckle or two. With stories like this, Giffen certainly would be changing storytime everywhere if he were allowed to huddle readers together to hear about the adventures of Rita Farr, Larry Trainor, Cliff Steele, and Karen Duncan. It's a shame the President of Oolong Island has other plans for Giffen's stories. At least we can buy them and pretend to read them at circle time. Read Full Review

    I think as far as team books go, Doom Patrol absolutely nails the dynamic between characters, creating an interesting group of real people that I want to continue reading about month after month. Read Full Review
