Doom Patrol #113

Doom Patrol #113 (On Sale: June 6, 1967) as usual has a cover by Bob Brown.

Inside we have the cover story "Who Dares to Challenge the Arsenal" by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani. The Doom Patrol matches wits with the Arsenal, a criminal whose mechanical body houses a multitude of super-weapons. The Chief, meanwhile, proves too busy to help his teammates, as he uses a secret device to reverse Madame Rouge's mental patterns, unaware that the Brain is using a similar device to strengthen her evil side at the same time.

The second story, "The Diamonds of Destiny," is also by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani. In this the continuation of the retelling of Beast Boy's origin, The young Gar Logan foils the plans of a pair of diamond thieves who form a temporary partnership with the unscrupulous witch-doctor of the nearby native tribe. Gar is kidnapped by the villains, however, who hope to exploit his powers to stage a robbery.
