Just wrapped up reading Morrison's Doom Patrol Omnibus.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. I felt it was just the right amount of surreal/wackiness meeting reality meeting the unreal. It reminded me a lot of his Animal Man and the Invisibles, but I think was better than the Invisibles
The earliest stuff has charm and is worth reading. John Forte's art is . . . strange. Very stiff and rigid figures with an odd sense of scale and proportion (someone explain to me how the Legionnaires were supposed to all fit into their clubhouse, for example), but also I couldn't imagine some of the stories being drawn by anyone else.
Forgive me b/c I have a feeling this isn't the first time this question has been asked, but after a few attempts with the "search" feature I'll just throw it out there...
What's the word on obtaining the actual slipcase for the DKIII OHC collection?
Unless you tend to like silver age comics (some people don't), my guess is the Levitz-Giffen era, as collected in The Great Darkness Saga and The Curse, will make a better starting point. The Curse, especially, has fantastic art, as in, some of the finest superhero art ever drawn as far as I'm concerned.
I'd say start out with The Great Darkness Saga. If you like it, read The Curse and head out from there. Early Legion is way more typical of wacky silver age shenanigans than early Spiderman. There's a real chance it will do nothing for you.
Do you guys think that the upcoming The Caped Crusader Hardcover is going to be a Deluxe?
