    Not a satisfactory story, but what can be done when the rug is pulled out from under you? Pity Paul Levitz who will be besieged by fans to explain the unexplained plot threads for years. Only for fans. LLL! Read Full Review

    Look, I wholly admit that this book, while under Levitz, has been pretty stale for the last several years. But I don't think the characters need to be completely shelved. And I certainly think they deserved much better than this. Read Full Review

    Legion Of Super-Heroes #23 is a dull and lackluster swan-song, focusing on the elements that I most disliked about this run, ignoring several unanswered questions, and succeeding only in sweeping the team under the rug for housekeeping purposes. Read Full Review

    Thank goodness Kevin Maguire was around for the art. He was able to provide the characters with passion, elegance, grace and emotion that were missing from stilted, burdensome dialog. "Legion of Super-Heroes" #23 might be the last issue of this volume, but there will undoubtedly be another one some day. Hopefully when that one launches, it's able to usher in more humanity and joy to what is becoming an increasingly joyless future in the DC Universe. I just hope DC realizes that Kevin Maguire is just as good drawing laughter, guffaws, shouts of joy and smiles when they look for an artist to bring some levity. Read Full Review
