A bit strange and a bit dated, Doom Patrol is nevertheless an alright read. I think it has been rebooted again, and without some of the more problematic characters like Crazy Jane.

This is an old series that I finally got around to reading. It was and still is unique with content and themes not often found in comic books. There are two story arcs in this book. The first is the title and explores surrealist painting. The second takes on philosophy and the mind-body Cartesian split. It pushes the theme to the extreme with humorous situations, talking apes, battling brains in a jar, the body claiming victory over the mind, and more. The second story however is not finished and you will need to pick up the next collection containing the original series. Now though, if you like, you can buy the complete Grant Morrison run in one deluxe Omnibus, costs about a "C" note but an enthralling read, especially if you like imaginative narratives.
