    You'd think the Doom Patrol would work fine in a darker, more realistic era, and that Giffen would be able to keep updating a 50-year old property for a modern audience. Well, aesthetically, he has, as I declare this run the best since Morrison's, and the run most steeped in the DCU proper. Cliff decides, as he always does, to regroup the team and retake the island. Even as he admits his own complicity in the Chief's manipulations over nearly every iteration of forming and reforming the team, it's still a cause he believes in and a way to use what's left of his life. It's all he knows how to do, and that makes him the codependent heart of one of the DCU's most intriguing band of weirdoes. Read Full Review

    As far as stories go, this issue of "Doom Patrol" has quite a bit going for it as Cliff Steele is set upon his introspective journey by an old foe who may pose as a temporary ally. If I didn't know that the next issue is the scheduled final issue, I would expect that Giffen is building an epic tale here. The end of this issue is rife with drama, and the promise of next issue's great adventure has me anxious for more, no matter how bittersweet that may turn out to be. Read Full Review
