  1. Last issue was amazing! Too bad the series couldn’t have kicked off with that much excitement. But if this is Giffen’s last issue already, I think Paul will need to find a new co-plotter — cause his solo stuff hasn’t been very entertaining.

  2. I bought the last issue just because of Giffen’s art. I have no idea who any of these people are, what is going on, any sort of Legion history, anything. Doesn’t matter, got Keith Giffen art.

    • Do yourself a favor and check out issues of Legion of Super-Heroes and Action Comics that Giffen did the art in. (From the mid-late 1980’s. I love them.) You can usually find them in cheap boxes for about $1 per issue at cons or your LCS.

  3. Heroes will live, heroes will die, and the Legion Universe will never be the same again.

  4. Was slightly taken aback as I had thought Keith Giffen completed the art for this issue. His premature departure is a real disappointment.

    Reminiscent of the unfortunate artist’s change-over in the middle of Levitz’s ‘Earthwar’.

  5. Last issue was so damn great.

    Now … this.


    • I take it back (sort of).

      In re-reading the last few issues, this one stacks up fairly well in comparison.
      A lot is happening with the team, but the pacing seems weird to me. Earth goes into total chaos pretty quickly. For a minute, I thought I’d missed an issue.

      And while the art was fine (I always like Tom Derenick’s work), I wish wee could get Giffen full-time.

      3.5 out of 5 😉
