Doom Patrol #12 jumps into the fantasy genre and continues to explore issues about family as well as the power of storytelling itself in an issue that lovingly celebrates classic tabletop role-playing games.

A quest for adventurers level 16-20! Far beyond the mortal realms, the Reynolds family must overcome their familial challenges in order to claim Lucius�� rightful place as the ruler of the Daemonscape, a place of horror, conflict, and sorcery. It is filled with traps, beasts, difficult challenges, the Five Daemon-Lords of the Crystal Hells and Agantha, a demon trapped in the body of a dead squirrel.
