    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 14, 2012

    I really found myself liking this issue, from both a writing and an art perspective. Tom DeFalco is an industry veteran whose experience serves him well, as this issue tells a tight story with well-balanced dialogue (save for the occasional awkward fake cursing, de rigeur for a Legion title anymore) and a nice twist at the end. Visually, it's a lovely issue as well, with good choreography and storytelling throughout. Legion Lost #0 even does something that no story in my memory ever has, explaining why a man from an alien planet would name himself after a terrestrial animal, earning a well-deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars overall. I was worried that a single character spotlight might damage Legion Lost by making somebody The Urkel, but this issue gives Timber Wolf some much-needed attention, and does it well. Read Full Review

    When so many #0 titles are falling short of spectacular, Legion Lost #0 actually gives readers a reason to tune in. The story's skeleton is a bit familiar, but the Woods' execution is worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Sep 15, 2012

    Okay, after berating comics for being too dark and too focused on anti-hero, I am thrilled that this book showed how justice doesn't need to be meted out with executions. And the internal struggle within Brin to remain human and not give in to his more primal urges was relatively well done. Still, this felt like a standard comic book origin story. And certainly couldn't be looked at as a jumping on point for a book set in the 21st century and made up of Legionnaires harboring secrets. So it just felt a little flat. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 17, 2012

    While Woods' art is decent and his storytelling is strong, the characters and writing just aren't enough to hook me into "Legion Lost" beyond this zero issue. I just read Brin Londo's origin and I'm not sure where the other heroes are. I'm also foggy as to where the title is headed from here, but there are plenty of other comic books that are more interesting right now. Read Full Review
