Doom Patrol #117

Doom Patrol #117 (On Sale: December 5, 1967) has a dramatic Bob Brown cover.

"The Black Vulture" is by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani. The Chief is deserted by the Doom Patrol after his new relationship with Madame Rouge causes him to neglect his duties as their leader. He then must fight alone against the Black Vulture, an old foe who has become a costumed criminal with a bird motif. The Doom Patrol returns in time to help battle the Vulture and his trained birds, but they in turn must be rescued by the arrival of the Chief's Indian friend, White Feather, and his warriors, who also have an old score to settle with the Black Vulture.

The back-up story is "The Man of 100 Wigs" by Jack Miller and John Prentice, a reprint from Tales of the Unknown #3.
