    Johns is a master world builder who knows how to pimp big events. Johns manages to use a six page back-up story that gets the reader excited about both Blackest Night and New Krypton as well as enticing the reader to come back and buy Adventure Comics #1. That is impressive to sell the reader three separate items all in such a short story. By tying these stories together even slightly it helps to create more broad appeal to these various stories among comic book readers. Read Full Review

    So do I think the "Origins and Omens" feature alone justified the issue's cover price? Well, no, not really. Other than the development involving Lex and Brainiac, the story really didn't bring anything to the table. If you're interested in reading the first Legion story, however, I'd definitely recommend picking this book up. If not, then by all means wait for the Superman books to catch you up to speed.

    For a dollar? I think it's a comic with money well spent. Read Full Review
