Fearless Robotman

"Fearless Robotman" from Doom Patrol vol.3 #10 (DC, 2002) by John Arcudi and Tan Eng Huat
I was out of comics for a while and completely missed the Doom Patrol in the early 2000s (two whole volumes!). Since picked up a few issues of Arcudi's series, mostly because it has such interesting art, and hoping to read the whole thing for my Old 52 series some day. What I know is that Robotman is back (he's old faithful - it ain't the DP without Cliff Steele), this time with a bunch of super-powered kids. Eventually, the weirdness of the previous series comes home to roost, but the issues I do have are very art-centric, quick reads. Anyone want to steer me towards or away from this book?

  1. I bought only a few issues and that was when back issues were on sale. Like you, it was for the art. I've never bothered to fill in my missing issues, though.

  2. I really liked this series of DP, better then the Byrne series that followed, weirder but not as much fun as Giffen's vol. 5. I'm a Doom Patrol fanatic, have just about every issue of all 5 volumes and working on working on getting every appearance!

  3. That's commitment! Especially volume 1. How did you like Reboot Robotman in the latest My Greatest Adventure mini-series?

  4. Hmm, I've dropped DC comics since Flushpoint, didn't even know that existed. Thanks for the heads up!

  5. Check it out. I absolutely loved this dramatic redesign of both Robotman and Madame Rouge.
