The Legion of Super-Heroes always thought they had taken their inspiration from the 21st Century's Superboy. But when they try to bring that hero into their future time, the team discovers to their surprise the caped champion isn't who-or even what-they expected! And the bonus Looney Tunes backup story features DC characters with story and art by Juan Ortiz!

    Legion of Super-Heroes/Bugs Bunny might not have been the comic book crossover we asked for, but it is the we deserved! Thanks for the reward DC! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jun 15, 2017

    Ive been missing the Legion since they lost their own book during the New 52. A new series seems in the offing, from developments in Rebirth. Until that comes into being, this special has satisfied my cravings. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - TalkNerdy2Me Jun 14, 2017

    Visually, this is a gorgeous book and completely worth the price of admission on the strength of the art alone. As beautiful as Grummet and Hanna's line work is, Bucellato's colors really make it pop. My favorite panel may well have been one of my other favorite Bugs Bunny classic moves - dressing up in drag to get the better of an opponent. I'm sure it's no coincidence that the creative team chose Wonder Woman's Amazonian suit to stuff Bugs into, but what makes it even better is that the dialogue Humphries gives him comes straight (slightly edited) from RuPaul herself! I haven't enjoyed a DC book this much in ages. I'll really be looking forward to seeing what the publisher does with my personal hero, Wile E. Coyote. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Tony Dillard Jun 16, 2017

    Written by Green Lanterns' Sam Humphries with art by Tom Grummett (Action Comics), the story is very tongue-in-cheek with lots of inside jokes and teen angst. Even the editors get in on the action, having a caption war of sorts with Humphries throughout the book. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Nicholas Palmieri Jun 19, 2017

    A thoroughly enjoyable spoof of 80s Legion comics, this issue fully understands both the greatness and ridiculousness of its source material. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Jun 14, 2017

    This is another home-run for DC Comics. They have been turning out quite a few crossovers recently and I have enjoyed them all, and this book is no exception. It's a nice turn from the more serious crossovers like Green Lantern/Star Trek or Green Lantern/Planet of the Apes. There is room in the marketplace for all of them, so it's good to see DC explore them all. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Jun 14, 2017

    PS. As I said there was a back up story done by Juan Manuel Ortiz, which pretty much retells the main story, with some added and changed scenes, but it is done in a cartoon style versus a comic book style, and that particular side story really feels like it came straight off the page and worth checking out!

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jun 15, 2017

    The biggest problem with Sam Humphries' script is that it's too self-aware and borderline parody even before Bugs shows up. It just isn't very funny, and that drags down the rest of the book. However, Grummett's artwork really does make up for almost all of the issue's shortcomings. It's that good. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 14, 2017

    If you read Paul Levitz's run on the Legion of Super-Heroes, then you might enjoy this comic. Otherwise, I imagine you'd find it pointless. Essentially the same story is repeated twice, though the second one is closer to the Silver Age style than the other. Eh. It's better than Space Jam. Read Full Review

    I didn't expect much for this issue but I enormously enjoyed it. This cross-over seemed at the beginning improbable but it's finally well-done and meaningful. It's a parody of the Silver Age's comic-books' tone, and it's really fun. Bugs Bunny's writing is excellent, with his typical but effective humor. The art is a perfect mix between the 60s super-hero stories and the Looney Tunes' style. However, the back-up is pointless in my opinion, because it's the same story but with less fun jokes.
