    If I could have had one comic book wish, it would be to have Levitz and Giffen reunited on Legion. You don't really understand: I've purchased twenty pages of Giffen's art, I've gotten Levitz to autograph too many comics, I was even a member of Interlac for a while. I'm a major Legion fan. My dream has come true and it has hit every one of my expectations. May this team never end! Long live the Legion! Read Full Review

    Keith Giffen. Good God. Keith Giffen's style has changed a bit since his glory days on the Legion (and Ambush Bug, for that matter), but it ain't a bad thing. Fans of his recent work on OMAC will see a similar style here (abetted, once again, by inker, Scott Koblish). Giffen has embraced a style reminiscent of 1970s Jack Kirby, particularly apparent during some of the frenetic action sequences and anything involving the expulsion of large quantities of cosmic energy. So, needless to say, I ain't complaining. It's a shame that it looks like Giffen is only sticking around for two more issues, because I could look at this book all day. Ah, well...better enjoy it while I can. And for some of us, any excuse to buy the Legion is a good excuse... Read Full Review
