Back to the Golden Age
And by the Golden Age I certainly don't mean the 1930s. I mean Grant Morrison's run, where the Doom Patrol was really amusing, and really bizarre.
We're starting to see more original characters, and the return of many of the Morrision age characters. The characters are changing their styles (Negative Man no longer just shoots the negative spirit at things), and you can really see the Doom Patrol's world. Plus, I certainly wasn't opposed to the return of the character on the last page....
I know he's supposed to be an arrogant jerk, but I'm just having trouble finding the Chief an interesting character. And some of the fight scenes drag on a little big.
