The DC Universe is a vast and varied place, encompassing scarred cowboys from the past, teenagers from the future who won’t lay off the practical jokes and various squads suicidal.  They’ve even got TWO teams called The Outsiders!  But few of the denizens of the reality that Superman spawned are quite as unusual as Niles Caulder’s original team of freaks.  Are you ready for the first appearance of The Doom Patrol?  Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of My Greatest Adventure #80 awaits!

Art Appreciation Moment of the DayDCDoom PatrolEvan Shaner

People often ask my why so many artists continually reappear in the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day. Well, if you consistently crank out fantastic art, like Evan “Doc” Shaner’s Doom Patrol image, the answer is pretty obvious.

 Or – “The Batman Made Me Do It!” Ever since we discovered the wonder of the Music Meister, my kid and I have been watching Batman: The Brave And The Bold at every opportunity.  She likes to ask questions about the heroes we see (Why does Aquaman have a beard?  What’s a Kamandi?  Why is Booster Gold blue?  Can Robin fly?  Why is that Flash wearing a hubcap on his head?  Is Starro a fish?) and I like to enjoy flat-out superheroic fun the likes of which you don’t get in comics so much anymore.  The most recent episode for

Or – “Do You Know How Many Captain Americas There Actually Are?“ As part of my Major Spoilers Star-Spangled Weekend™, I’m going to be periodically checking in with you, the Faithful Spoilerites to talk a little pop culture during my long weekend off.  (Vacation from two out of three jobs is the best I’m going to get.)  This time around, Captain America, American Son, as well as the greatest heroes of China and Russia take center stage as we look at the best and worst of last month with our monthly Rapid-Fire REVIIIEOOOOOOOOooOOOOOEWWWW!

Or “Silver Age Represent, Yo!” Three dark and dangerous heroes of the near past…  Three bright and shiny teens from the future… Can these two teams successfully interact?  And will they be able to coexist long enough to save the world?

Or – “April Showers Bring May Flowers, But Mayflowers Only Bring Religious Dissidents…” Man, it has been a LOOOONG month of May.  The comics industry seems intent on moving to $3.99 price points, The Eleventh Doctor got hit on, and Scarlett Johanssen looks great in skintight stretch fabrics.  In any case, since another month has come and gone, and it’s a three-day weekend for many in the United States we’ve got time to look at a couple dozen things that have come out in recent weeks, Rapid-Fire Style!

Or – “Named For The Roman God Martius, God Of War…”   Not to be confused with famed Martian general Marvin, whose computers are so complex and naughty… Traditionally, this month has signaled the beginning of the season of military campaigns, and also the time when college basketball generals lead their troops unto the field of battle. For me, working in small-market TV for as long as I did, it’s a month which signals mighty pains in the butt, which explains why this is technically the FEBRUARY edition of RFR. We apologize for the inconvenience… Better to just press on.

Or – “There Are Old Pilots And Bold Pilots, But Few Old, Bold Pilots…” I saw recently that a clinical study proved that January 25th is the most depressing day of the entire year, scientifically and unequivocally.  While I don’t disagree with that sentiment (especially as it regards the attendance of employees in Midwestern United States call centers) I find it fascinating that somebody actually got paid to try and figure out something that silly and (let’s be honest, here) banal.  Still and all, it’s the kind of story that you read and go, “Yeah, I can see that.”  Thus,
