The Thing and The Doom Patrol

While I have followed the Doom Patrol through their various series, I had not read more than a couple of of their original adventures until recently. I picked up the two DC Showcase volumes featuring their first series and I was very glad that I did. Arnold Drake had a great imagination and I really dig the Bruno Premiani artwork. That's one thing I like about DC's Showcase volumes as well as Marvel's Essentials - the black and white artwork really lets the reader appreciate the art, which was often muddied up by early coloring techniques.

Dave sez,

Sweet cover!

I really enjoyed how the Doom Patrol was treated on Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

I'll have to track down the Showcase volumes...I only got familiar with them through survivors "Changeling" (nee Beast Boy) and Mento in New teen Titans...
