The groundbreaking series from Grant Morrison that led American comics in a wholly unexpected direction.

Originally conceived in the 1960s by the visionary team of writer Arnold Drake and artist Bruno Premiani, the Doom Patrol was reborn a generation later through Grant Morrison's singular imagination.

Though they are super-powered beings, and though their foes are bent on world domination, convention ends there. Shunned as freaks and outcasts, and tempered by loss and insanity, this band of misfits faces threats so mystifying in nature and so corrupted in motive that reality itself threatens to fall apart around them--but it's still all in a day's work for the Doom Patrol.

Written by Grant Morrison and featuring art by Richard Case , John Nyberg , Doug Braithwaite , Scott Hanna and Carlos Garz#65533;n , DOOM PATROL BOOK ONE collects issues #19-34 and includes introductions by Morrison and editor Tom Peyer.

Full disclosure, this series was one of the biggest influences that got me into comics in the first place. It has been fantastic reading through it once again. I love it as much as I remember.

This series is about a group of misfits trying to recover from their last catastrophe and become heroes once again (or for the first time for some). The story has dark overtones, where the heroes tend to be serious and dealing with their own personal problems. But their enemies are always some form of nonsense or absurdity. It's a wonderful contrast of heroes trying to deal with their problems while being constantly reminded that the world makes no sense.

Whether you're a fan of older comics, are drawn by oddball characters, or are just looking for something else to read, I cannot recommend this series enough! It's a classic series worth every minute of your time.
