Format: Hardcover
In the mid 1980s came the renaissance of the superhero comic, heralded by 'The Dark knight Returns' and 'Watchmen'. The dominance of Claremont's X-Men was waning (it had passed its peak) and the shackles of the silver age finally fell away. Traditional superhero comics were now at their best since the 1960s after a long period of stagnation that had lasted for a decade or so.

But there was something better to come that followed the titles I mention above, something better even than 'The Killing Joke', 'The Saga of the Swamp Thing' and Grant Morrison's own 'Arkham Asylum' and the magnificent 'Animal Man'.

That something was the rebirth of The Doom Patrol, a cult team from 1960s DC. Yet somehow, this astonishing series has never become as well-known as the titles I mention above. I think it's because The Doom Patrol were never anywhere near as famous and familiar as Batman - I'd read DC comics in the late sixties (Metal Men and World's Finest, mostly), but I'd never heard of them until the end of the 80s.

The Doom Patrol was created by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani for DC, shortly before Marvel launched X-Men.

One of my three favorite Grant Morrison books. And I've read them all. 18 Aug. 2014
By JOHNNYSTOMP! - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I never thought we'd get all of this into one Omnibus. It's a giant book, yes, difficult I imagine to take to a coffee shop or even to a con to be signed. That said, this is one of my three favorite Grant Morrison books of all time. The other two are Animal Man and the soon to return to print Zenith (drawn by Steve Yeowell). Many consider X-men to have been inspired by the Doom Patrol. That said, Morrison's X-Men run, good as it is, is nothing compared to this series drawn mainly by Richard Case. This is the story of freaks that save the world. The most unlikely heroes taking on the weirdest and wildest concepts imaginable. Think of super heroes fighting the bad guys from The Invisibles or the Filth. It's weird. And a lot of fun. And the secret origin of the Chief. well, it's worth waiting for and reading towards (even if you disagree). This is Morrison's first truly weird book, but it's still rooted in a super hero universe, which may be why I liked it so much more than his Vertigo work.

"There is another world. There is a better world." 6 Jun. 2015
By Karmichael Jones - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've read a bulk of Morrison's work, and Doom Patrol stands among his best. An absurdist comic that serves as an excellent treatise on the medium, as well as the power and importance of imagination. In most of his work, Morrison's all about the long game, and Doom Patrol is no exception. And I assure you the conclusion is well worth the occassional dry issue.
As for the Omnibus itself, top marks all-around. Beautiful quality and presentation. A necessary addition to any comic enthusiast's library.
