    Their only port in the storm is an old acquaintance of Cliff's in Vegas, and his proposal is the worst of all worst-case scenarios: it happens their host knows General Immortus, and Immortus wants to lead his former enemies in the Chief's absence. The most pitiful thing is our gloomy losers actually consider his offer. I wouldn't put major crazy blow-ups and kiss-offs out of Giffen's purview at this point, so I'm definitely on board for whatever's left of this underrated series. I hope it goes out with a bang!

    Even at its strongest, Doom Patrol remains less than outstanding. Its lack of mission statement, repetitive dark humor, and uninteresting plotlines are no doubt all factors in its upcoming end. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 9, 2011

    I'm not sure how the hammer comes down when a comic is slated for cancellation, but I do know when it happens, many comics quickly flutter about trying to wrap up loose ends and tie down plot threads. That certainly feels like the motion this book is going through. In this case, however, that wrap-up is doing some good to expedite struggles, conflicts, and other interactions dedicated "Doom Patrol" readers have been waiting for. It's a shame it had to come down to the last three issues to try to jam in the rest of the ideas Giffen has been masterfully (and sometimes painstakingly) seeding throughout the series, but I'm sure there will be a few notions left open-ended or undone. This team has been cancelled " hell, they've been killed! " before. For now, though, I'm enjoying the ride and the wild, crazy salute to the creators that have come before and contributed to the legend of the Doom Patrol. Read Full Review
