The Crawling from the Wreckage wiki last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 03/13/15 11:50PM View full history

In "Crawling from the Wreckage" part 1, Grant Morrison begins his celebrated run--one of the earliest works of his DC career. After the events of recent issues, the team must rebuild, gaining all new members in the process!

Following the disastrous events of last issue Cliff Steele has checked himself into a psychiatric hospital. The implications of his existence as a human brain severed from its host body and placed into a lumbering robotic apparatus getting him down somewhat. Caulder (who has plans to start his Doom Patrol anew) has arranged it that Will Magnus, the creator of Cliff’s new body visit him. Magnus is at first shocked by Robotman's lack of gratitude and self loathing, but points out to him that he isn’t the only creature upon the earth to feel suffering, introducing him to another patient (Crazy Jane). Meanwhile Larry Trainor (Negative Man) recovering in hospital, is set upon by a dark apparition, arranging it that nurse Eleanor Poole and Larry’s anatomies amalgamate in a chemical wedding.


  • The first $1.50 issue.
  • The first issue of Doom Patrol produced as a "New Format".
  • The letter column title is renamed the "Doom Sayers".
