I said this in my review of Doom Patrol #22, but my feelings about this are strong enough that I need to say it here as well.
I'm disappointed in DC over the cancellation of Doom Patrol. Normally this wouldn't require a final note, but what really got me was the fact that they had a crossover with the highly popular Secret Six (Which I APPROVE of.) It was a great story, flowed well, had an impact on Doom Patrol, but most of all, it was a GREAT way to try to bring in new readers, which is clearly the main reason for it to happen. So why oh why would you cancel Doom Patrol BEFORE THE CROSSOVER ACTUALLY HAPPENS!? The point is, you do the crossover, and then WAIT and issue or 2 to see if enough new readers jumped on! Otherwise, honestly, why have the crossover at all? What was the point? I still liked it, but I liked it even more because I thought it might save this comic. But instead IT NEVER GOT THE CHANCE. They threw it a lifeline AFTER IT HAD ALREADY DROWNED. Bad show DC.
