Synopsis
A discussion of how the Doom Patrol feature came to be created and a bit of background on what this article claims are its TWO creators, Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani.

Indexer Notes

The headshots are taken from the original letter column header used first in The Doom Patrol (DC, 1964 series) #86 (March 1964).

No mention is made of Bob Haney, who often claimed co-creator credit. "Next issue: Your letters plus a bio of Murray Boltinoff." This is not what appeared, however.
