Synopsis from publisher:
Legendary writer Grant Morrison (ALL STAR SUPERMAN, BATMAN) finishes his fractured remake of this 1960s misfit super-team in this volume collecting DOOM PATROL #58-63 and DOOM FORCE SPECIAL #1. Along the way, the Doom Patrol must face new challenges: Danny the Street meets his cosmic destiny, the bizarre hero known as Rebis battles the Candlemaker, and Crazy Jane attempts to find her place in the world.
