This was a weird and awesome issue...but, maybe leaning a bit more to the weird. I find the pace was too quick when the doom patrol was in the Scantoverse, though i liked how all of this was just to display how Niles Caulder is a hotmess. This issue is more of a set-up for this current story arc which i think has to do with $#!+.
