Their first appearance was in My Greatest Adventure #80, where they stayed for a further five issues, but they became so popular that by issue #86, the comic book itself was re-Christened "The Doom Patrol"!
Because I enjoyed the above issue so much, when I saw the cover below, I snatched the comic up!
After he is turned down, he will try his luck with the Teen Titans!
Perhaps not a good time to ask again if he can join?
Mind you, Cliff Steele wasn't exactly a model student, when he awoke from a car crash, only to find his brain inside a robot's body, as we learn from the back-up story, which continues in the next issue, ( below ) : -
Plus, we meet another new wannabe member, Mento!
Now, how about this for a cover and an impressive - looking Super-Villain?!
Anyway, in the next issue I bought, the DP had finally let Beast-Boy join them!
After all, ....What harm can it do?
PLEASE NOTE, in this issue, there is no "THE" in the title! ]
In this, the last issue that I bought ( and yet another stonking cover! ), things are looking very bleak for Robotman!
Little did I know that things would get even worse for the DP, come the next issue!!
WELL, THAT'S YOUR LOT FOR THIS YEAR, AS THE BLOG WILL BE GOING ON HIATUS, UNTIL THE NEW YEAR, BUT THEN I WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK, SHOWING YOU MY OLD COVERS!
IN THE MEANTIME, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE WHO HAS GIVEN ME SUPPORT, ENCOURAGMENT AND HELP ON MY HUMBLE EFFORT AND WISH YOU ALL A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
