Our first arc concludes! The Doom Patrol is back together, and their mission to take out the Vectra brings them in contact with another old friend. Secrets will be uncovered, blows will be struck and, whether they win or lose, Casey Brinke's existence will be altered forever. And yours just might be, too!

    I also an really enjoying the slow development of Sam, Caseys partner in Danny the Ambulance. Sam more or less takes the role that Joshua Clay had in Morrisons run, the normal person thrust into the middle of the Doom Patrols insanity. His friendship with Casey started him down this path, but we have seen his relationship with his unusual son, and in this issue we meet his missing wife, one of Janes cult members. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Apr 26, 2017

    Its nice to see the whole Patrol congeal in Doom Patrol #6, but Way clearly is not going to just leave it at that. He has plans for the team, from the mischief Terry None is drumming up to the interpersonal dynamics that are already shifting as theyre being rekindled. Quite simply, the team works both the creative team and the cast theyre working with. Doom Patrol #6 is a high-stakes adventure filled with nostalgia and potential. Way, Derington, Fowler, Bonvillain, and Klein take this arcs finale to the upper echelon, and promise more to come. Long time Doom Patrol fans are going to be thrilled with this comic, and long-term can be translated as fans from the first volume, Morrisons volume, or even this volume. And its really just getting started. Read Full Review

    Well, we have the conclusion of our first arc and I gotta say, I can't help but wonder what Gerard Way was on while writing this series so far. This series will straight up alter your mind. If you haven't read any of the 6 in this series this is not the place to start. You can't miss anything while reading these. I also gotta say Nick Derington did a fantastic job with the artwork in this one. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Lu Apr 26, 2017

    This book is madness mixed with unbridled joy. It's the product of minds who know that comics should be fun and that anything is possible. It's the perfect uplifting title for an uncertain time. Read Full Review

    Sometimes it feels like the world's been turned upside down and that is when we have to be like Casey and keep trying to be the light. It's not often I recommend re-reading a series in one sitting, but these first sixissues demand to be read together to mitigate the shipping delays. There's something special in this series, but the non-traditional style makes it a little difficult to find it. By itself, this issue seems a little disjointed and obtuse, but read all together, Doom Patrol #6 caps off the first arc by reassembling the team through a meaningfulexploration of self-identity and friendship.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 26, 2017

    There's some cool concepts, and the return of a fan-favorite character, but it all happens so quickly that I found it a bit unsettling. I think the overall story of this first arc has been good fun, but the last two issues have seemed a little over packed when taken individually. I know, I'm usually the guy saying stories are too decompressed in comics these days, but I guess with the Doom Patrol I want to luxuriate in the weirdness a little longer. Read Full Review
