    Legion of Super-Heroes #18 is a little too dependent on the legacy of the Great Darkness Saga for my tastes, but is at least a more interesting LSH story than Levitz has been delivering alone. Read Full Review

    So another turbo-fueled issue of Legion. And about these monthly Legionnaire deaths, to quote Fleming "Once is happenstance, Twice is coincidence, Three times is enemy action." I fear there will be many more. It is a shame that Giffen is leaving so soon after revving up the title. That said, I will be thrilled when Francis Portela is back on art. Read Full Review

    A solid issue, and one that will bring me back next month for more adventure, Legion of Super-Heroes #18 may just be one piece of the puzzle that puts the heroes of the 31st century back on track. With yet another hero possibly meeting his end in this issue (what is it with those initials?), its definitely worth jumping on for the ride to see where it takes us. Read Full Review

    It's a shame that Giffen is off to other pastures, because I'd have loved for him to even stay on board as a co-author, even if he doesn't have time to draw the book as planned. These two issues have been a blast, and knowing that things will probably settle down somewhat without his presence is a real disappointment. (Word is unclear if he'll be co-writing next month or not, but if so that will be it.) For a brief moment, "Legion of Super-Heroes" was doing what it should have been all along. Read Full Review
