The main story was good if not a bit confusing. What happened to the Doom Patrol – they got boom tubed off the island? What has happened to Niles? I have no idea and I blame the art. I still love the way Giffen is telling these stories with the wikipedia-like entries but the art on this and Clarke’s normal art is just awful and distracting. The Metal Men back-up is hilarious as always even with a guest artist – and one who emulates Kevin McGuire very well I might add. I love how Gold treats Copper in this issue – always calling her the wrong name and all of the references to TV shows was perfect!
