    After three installments, I'm confident calling "Superman and the Legion of Superheroes" another fantastic outing from Johns and a strong Action Comics debut from Gary Frank. In the end, I think these creators will manage to not only tell a riveting Superman story, but also find a way to fit the Silver Age Legion firmly back into the Superman mythos. Read Full Review

    Action Comics #860 was a solid read. As a long time Legion fan, I am enjoying this story arc. However, the fact is that there are very few long time Legion fans out there. We make up a very small percentage of comic book readers. I'm just not too sure that readers who aren't big Legion fans are really going to find this story arc all that enjoyable. Especially given the slow pace and the need to have a good grasp of Legion history in order to really enjoy all the aspects of this story. I'd only recommend Action Comics #860 to Legion fans.

    This month's issue just has Superman and the Legion free some of their friends and finding out that Brainiac already escaped. From here, they head to the underground Legion base where the evil JLA tracks them down. Before they can capture them, the Legion makes their escape as they head to Brainiac's homeworld to find him. There, they find him and he's apparently evil, ending our issue. Read Full Review
