Doom Patrol (1964) #86 continues from My Greatest Adventure (1955) #85
Title numbering comes from My Greatest Adventure (#1-85), an anthological
series that had begun running Doom Patrol stories only in #80.
Doom Patrol probably retained the numbering of the mostly unrelated
former title because of postal regulations at the time -- it was easier to retain
cheap subscription mailing rates for an existing series than to reapply for
those rates for a brand-new title. Because of the differing content, this database
will cleanly break the two titles.
However, after Doom Patrol itself ended in 1968, the title resurfaced
in 1973, picking up the same numbering with #122-4. These three issues, being
exclusively reprints of the 1960s run, are included here.
