Summary

Out of the Silver Age of Comics came a very different comic book team, featuring a new breed of superheroes. Cast out of society due to their deformities, the Doom Patrol were a group of misfit loners not blessed, but cursed, with unnatural powers. These human oddities--Elasti-Girl, Negative Man, Robotman and the Chief--save the world one strange case at a time.

See them take on such equally bizarre villains like the undying criminal mastermind General Immortus, shape-shifting Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man, the Brotherhood of Evil and more!

Doom Patrol: The Silver Age Volume One kicks off Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani's beloved series with tales from The Doom Patrol #96-107, Challengers of the Unknown #48 and The Brave and the Bold #65.

Author Biography

Born in 1924, Drake began his work in the comics industry in 1950 with a startlingly innovative project: the "picture novel" It Rhymes with Lust from St. John Publications, which he co-wrote with Leslie Waller. Drake brought his inventiveness to DC, where he wrote for titles in different genres in the 1950s and '60s. In addition to lengthy runs on HOUSE OF MYSTERY, HOUSE OF SECRETS, MYSTERY IN SPACE, CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN and TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED, Drake also conceived of two of the era's most innovative features: the Doom Patrol and Deadman. He went on to work extensively for Western Publishing's Gold Key comics line in the 1970s and early '80s, and in later years he was deeply involved in the Veterans Bedside Network, an organization of show business personalities using music and drama as therapy in America's V.A. hospitals. In 2005 Drake received the Bill Finger Award for Excellence in Comic Book Writing at the Comic-Con International in San Diego, in recognition of his lifelong contributions to the medium. He passed away in March of 2007.
