In 1993, I wrote a letter to the letter column of Doom Patrol, an edited version of which was published in issue no. 74 (Jan. 1994). Here’s part of the letter:
The cover of DP #70 is one of the best I’ve seen (for DP). It made me laugh out loud. I really was hoping for some covers by “new regular cover painter” Brian Bolland, but as long as Tom Taggart makes covers like this, keep him.
I was later very pleasantly surprised when I received a package from Tom Taggart containing an autographed copy of the issue with the cover I praised. I wrote him back to thank him, but I don’t know if he received my note.
