Doom Patrol #114

Doom Patrol #114 (On Sale: July 20, 1967) as usual has a cover by Bob Brown.

Inside we have the cover story "Kor -- the Conqueror" by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani. An experiment in time warps goes wrong and transforms Dr. Anton Koravyk into Kor, a Neanderthal man who menaces the city with Dr. Koravyk's powerful sonic weapon. The Chief continues his efforts to "cure" Madame Rouge.

The second story, "The Kid Who Was King of Crooks," is also by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani. In this the continuation of the retelling of Beast Boy's origin, the diamond thieves who have kidnapped him use Gar Logan's shape-changing powers to rob a highly-guarded vault in Johannesburg. The criminals perish, however, when the child's idea of a practical joke causes each to suspect the other of treachery, and they kill each other.
