Just watched The Doom Patrol's appearance on Titans, and enjoyed it immensely. I won't spoil it for anybody, but the tone was pitch-perfect. And again, I'm really enjoying the show after loathing that trailer.
So let's do some classic Doom Patrol, with the first issue I ever read. Ish #106 comes from 1966, but I originally read it around 1976, when my Grandad bought me a Double-Double comic containing it.
Double-Double Comics, for the uninitiated, were bound together remaindered comics minus the covers, and could contain just about anything.
This one I remember because it contained both this issue of Doom Patrol, and the issue of Challengers Of The Unknown advertised on the last page here.
As I say, I'd never read The DP before, had no idea who the characters were or what was going on, and didn't even have a cover to guide me. But I loved them instantly.
Which is exactly the process you're going to go through right now. Let the weirdness begin.
