    I never thought a "Blackest Night" tie-in could end being fun, but Giffen's script for the main feature of "Doom Patrol" just proved that it's possible. I'm hoping this means that we're at the end of the Grim Patrol; there needs to be some more fun moments to balance out the serious bits. Fingers crossed, the book might be heading in the right direction. Read Full Review

    This issue makes me thankful for Robotman, for Keith Giffen's no-nonsense plotting, and for remembering Celsius, Negative Woman and Tempest ever existed. Read Full Review

    Hopefully someone at DC will realize that this comic book needs to be called Metal Men. Dematteis and Giffen and Maguire are producing a fun, humorous piece of storytelling that is unfortunately stuck in the back of a comic book not worth buying. It's a shame, really. Read Full Review
