Default Doom Patrol - can they get some love (and a good creatvie team?!?)

Please?!?

I love this team. and here we finally get the originals back, and look at what editorial allows storywise! Sheesh!

Medic!

Can we hope to see a new title with a fantastic creative team post-Infinite Crisis?

Not for awhile I'm afraid. DC is probably going to feel the sting of its' recent third degree Byrnes it got from the recent run and wait before restarting.

Yes, but TJ, what happens when you play with fire?

One would think DC would have prepped the first-aid kit in anticipation of the Byrne.

Yes, but fire Byrnes nonetheless. Smother it, I say!

I agree. Grant did a phenomenal job with the team. His run on DP were some of the best comics ever.

Hate to disagree with everyone, but I enjoyed John Byrne's Doom Patrol. Grant Morrison had some great concepts, but I didn't enjoy the series: it was not Doom Patrol to me. Oh, well, to each his own.

Whealer, it's cool that you enjoyed it. Everyones' allowed his own tastes. But you HAVE to admit, given not only the sales numbers and cancellation, but the PLUMMET the sales took over a relatively short amount of time that more people are glad than sad that this book is gone.


Let's not even get into his insane theories that low sales were part of a Retailer conspiracy or people that were "Byrne stealing" his book....

Hey you aren't completely alone....I enjoyed it as well. I didn't like the last two incarnations of the DP so I was glad to see a more retro version. I would like to see the original team back post crisis, but I would love to see someone like John Ostrander or Roger Stern take on the writing chores. I think that would be incredible.

Geoff Johns should write a new ongoing Doom Patrol series!

Add me to the (small) number of people who've been liking this incarnation. Very similar to Byrne's "X-Men: the Hidden Years", which was the best X-book out when it was being published. Then again, the Doom Patrol are supposed to be like some weird X-Men/FF hybrid, so it all works out.

I was also rather fond of the version immediately prior to this one. The Morrison run was OK, but just waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to far out there most of the time. To quote Robotman from the previous run, "Sometimes, even I didn't know what was going on!"

There's a guy on the DCMB's by the name of geezerisms who, quite brilliantly IMO, drew the connections between Byrnes DP and XM:THY, especially that Vortez, Grunt and Nudge were actually Cyclops, Beast and Marvel Girl (explaining why Byrne focused on them so much). He (geezerisms) REALLY made all the dots connect.

I've liked this version of DP better than the last one. I really didn't care for the art in the last one or the stories. I liked the series before Arcudi's (spelling) run but not at the end when it went Vertigo.

I've not hated this version of Doom Patrol, but I do think that the ball's been dropped a bit. The extra members didn't really work. And wehen you consider that the Doom Patrol are basically a bunch of B movie monsters, I think a slightly creepier tone might have been a bit more welcome. And Byrne, much as I enjoy his art, doesn't do creepy that well.

Count me as one that likes the Byrne version. I've never really gotten into them, but I like this series. Admittedly, I wasn't too keen on it for the first few issues, but it has grown into one of my favorite books.
