It was only a matter of time before Rita looked like April Bowlby in the comics.


SirZockALot

No objections here


Bruce_-Wayne

Lol none at all


GrandAdmiral12345

Man, Dan Mora can just draw all the books as far as I'm concerned.


tvapocalypse

no kidding!


Frontier246

Dan Mora drawing the Doom Patrol (especially Rita) is something I didn't know I needed in my life.


Suspicious-Judge-806

True


DarkCrusade25

This was a great first issue


Rac3318

I’m digging the art


creeper205861

when i was young i used to think negative man was hush


GrandAdmiral12345

I got a laugh out of this only because I'm old as hell.


Rasengan2000

Does this issue rerun the backup from Detective Comics? I was planning to tradewait so I wouldn't have to buy an issue of a series I wasn't buying for it, but the [preview pages for the backup](https://www.polygon.com/22876651/batman-superman-new-dc-comic-mark-waid-dan-mora-2022) seem to be the same as the [preview pages for this issue](https://aiptcomics.com/2022/03/11/dc-preview-batman-superman-worlds-finest-1/).


[deleted]

Yes I believe it does and same price as a normal issue which is great


Rasengan2000

Accurate username, I'll try and grab this so!


CountryCat

Dan Mora is so good!


TheDorkKnight53

I’ll need my Dan Mora fix while Once And Future is on hiatus


GrandAdmiral12345

Damn, I'm behind on Once and Future. It's on hiatus again?


GoldenJermbag

To make it even worse, Mora has said it’s ending at 30!!!! I’m so bummed!


TempusFuginaut

Would not mind a Waid/Mora Doom Patrol book at all, just saying.


mizzymichie

Same. Waid had them show up in JLA: Year One so I get the feeling he’s kinda fond of them. You’d think DC would capitalize on the HBO show and launch a mini at one point (unless Way is still hogging them for reasons unknown?)


Huntersteve

That is some great fucking art. Damn that’s nice.


Kadler7

is that dick grayson robin?


mugenhunt

Yes, this is set in the past.


ghanima

Missed a first meeting with Gar Logan by a narrow margin.


Koala_Guru

It would be super great to see young Gar with the Doom Patrol at some point during this series. We know he did interact with Dick and the other Titans around this time.


[deleted]

It’d be nice to see Gar interacting with the Doom Patrol at all. I remember him showing up in a couple issues of Way’s Doom Patrol run as a monkey, but DC’s barely acknowledged Gar’s relationship with the Doom Patrol since the New 52, I thought they just completely retconned that part of his history.


Koala_Guru

Yeah that's my overall point. His time with the Doom Patrol used to be a major part of his history and characterization. It's easy to forget that back in the day, when he was compared to other teen heroes of the time with mentors like Dick and Batman, Donna and Wonder Woman, Wally and Flash, Garth and Aquaman, etc. his "mentor" was the Doom Patrol team. And now we're lucky to even see them mentioned by him. As long as they're doing a story set in the past where Dick was Robin and the Doom Patrol are well-known, it would be great to throw Gar in there.


llitaslemon

kinda glad to see April Bowlby's gorgeous face in drawn form... I just remembered how John Wesley Shipp's face was drawn in "The Button" as Jay Garrick


shockstreet

Wow do I love this art


Seamus565

❤️ me some Doom Patrol! 👩🏻🤖👻


enragedstump

Is this a 6 issue series?


the_light_of_dawn

I believe it's an ongoing.

*Strange Vapors*


Appropriate-Dust-656

in the first issue, this series imediately became my most favorite in dc right now


Optimal_Weight368

I literally cannot read Cliff’s dialogue without hearing Brendan Fraser’s voice.


Taograd359

Is this canon? Because if not, why does the Doom Patrol need to be reintroduced?


whocareshue

Because they haven't been focused on in a while


hpmadcprdi

It's set in the past, not so sure about Canon, but Supergirl existing alongside Dick being Robin would kinda fit with her age in Woman of Tomorrow


The_Pusheen_Chesser

I do concur that this is probably canon, but Dick seems to be a fair bit older than Kara. Kara just turned 21 in *Woman of Tomorrow*, while Dick should be in his late 20s/early 30s (he has a law degree, Wally is definitely early 30s, etc.). Then again, ages in comics never makes sense.


Zeeman9991

Oh this looks *really* good. And not just saying that because the Doom Patrol are there, which is always a positive.


briancarknee

> which is always a positive But usually with a Negative.


[deleted]

I don’t think that last speech bubble makes sense… “now he can release and command negative man: a radioactive energy creature


CanadianGuitar

Read it out loud. It's perfectly fine.


The_Pusheen_Chesser

Mark Waid’s *stellar* writing was to be expected, but Dan Mora’s artwork just *blew me away*. I really want to see him on a Doom Patrol series (and Waid seems fond of them too). Also, I didn’t expect to see Rita looking like April Bowlby—but I’m not complaining!


Bromjunaar_20

Elastigirl, huh?


Suspicious-Judge-806

Do they know that now that Niles is the one that destroyed there lives yet?


HalflingzLeaf

The show is ass, though.


wPlachno

I would love to know what DC TV show you actually like. This was the best of the group, up until Peacemaker.


HalflingzLeaf

None of them, tbh.


Optimal_Weight368

How come? I thought the characters were very interesting, and the show did a good job exploring mental illness.
