My CBR-reviewing cohort Greg McElhatton had a go at the book for CBR. He gave it two stars, saying
When Keith Giffen's revamp of "Doom Patrol" was first announced, I remember a
lot of promises that it would somehow encompass all versions of the team over
the years. Aside from killing off some members of the John Byrne iteration of
the team and some brief appearances of Bumblebee, though, that promise has gone
mostly unfulfilled. Well, at least until now, where Giffen seems to be doing
everything in his power to make up for lost time on that front.
He seems concerned for the future of the title, which I can understand in today's fickle marketplace, especially when you throw a crossover in early.
I've read some feedback posted here by Nathan on the comments page and it sounds like Greg might not be the only one with concerns.
What do the rest of you think?
