9781401207663: The Doom Patrol Archives, Vol. 3 (DC Archive Editions)

The DOOM PATROL was certainly one of the more unusual and most fondly remembered of DCs 1960s titleswith more of a focus on the personality of the characters themselves. In this third volume we see a new unofficial member, a wedding and a very early DC crossover with The Challengers of the Unknown!

From Booklist:

Created in the 1960s, the Doom Patrol consisted of three superheroes shunned by society for their bizarre powers and led by a genius in a wheelchair. Though it sounds like an X-Men rip-off, the patrol debuted virtually simultaneously. It never approached the success of its Marvel Comics counterparts, however, and originally ran for only five years. Moreover, attempts to revive it, notably a bizarre 1990s effort scripted by Grant Morrison, fared little better. Still, the nine issues corralled here, from midway through its run, have genuine appeal. Scripter Drake may try too hard to imitate the breeziness of Marvel auteur Stan Lee, but the results, never taking themselves too seriously, are fun. Meanwhile, principal artist Bruno Premiani's clean, clear style would be welcome in comics today. These stories introduce the young superhero Beast Boy, who went on to greater fame as one of the New Teen Titans, who rivaled the X-Men in popularity in the 1980s. Gordon Flagg
