    nice! yeah not sure if you remember me from the previous forum, I was batman23. But yeah I decided on a different name, since I was lucky enough to be one the first to re-register

    It's definitely one of my favorite runs. How do you feel about the other Doom Patrol runs?

    well you were able to get a great name!


    i loved Giffen's run. he was able to mesh all of the previous version of the Doom Patrol and make it work. plus it had his usual dark comedy vibe.

    of course the Drake/Premiani run is just classic. so different from what DC was producing at the time.

    wasnt a big fan of the Kupperberg era dP. it wasnt a bad book per say but he turned them into a rather generic superhero team. i remember reading that Arnold Drake wasnt a fan of that run either. he actually loved what Grant Morrison did with the team by bringing back the "strangeness" to the World Strangest Heroes.
    we never saw the fates of Celsius and Tempest in Forever Evil. i think those characters have potential and would love to see them included in the New 52 Doom Patrol. as long as the classic line up is there too.

    Of the runs I have read I personally liked Giffen just a little better than Morrison. I love both along with Arcudi's run, but I think sometimes Morrison got a little too weird for his own good. Plus Giffen just had more humor which gave it the edge for me.

    yeah the Arcudi run was good as well. it's often overlooked. i liked Robotman as the mentor for the new younger members.

    Love the Doom Patrol. My second favourite DC team after the original Earth-2 JSA.

    Funnily enough, it wasn't even a Doom Patrol comic that got me interested in the team. I first became aware of the team through Changling's origin story in Tales of the New Teen Titans and this page in particular:



    This and the story from New Titans 13-15 intrigued me. Fortunately, my brother and I were able to track down a lot of the Drake/Premiani issues and Ibecame an instant fan.

    I was severly disappointed with the Kupperberg run, but Morrison's issues are some of the finest and most memorables comics I've ever read. Byrne's run was instantly forgettable but I loved the Giffen series.

    THe ending to Giffen's run was one of the funniest and most bizarre endings to a series I've ever read:

    The best Doom Patrol runs always have the most interesting endings, from Drake killing off the team and asking readers to decide if they want them to return, to Morrison's beautiful and poignant Cliff/Jane scene, to Giffen's "I have no idea what a "Didio" is".
