    It's almost guaranteed that a title with this many characters to juggle will have a little trouble balancing its narrative. Read Full Review

    This comic isn't much of anything but it's fairly entertaining, the art is great and it's just a lighthearted romp at the end of the day. I gave the last two issues a 5/10. I still think that's fair but thanks to the art and the fact that I had fun reading this issue, I'm going to give it an extra point. Read Full Review

    Seeing so many eras and characters of the DC universe provides plenty of spectacle to distract from a story that's barely unfolding and Godlewski does excellent work in quickly defining each element in establishing panels. However, it's hard not to imagine a much more engaging version of this story being packed into two issues like Millennium at the start of Bendis' Legion run. Read Full Review

    Four issues in, this series simply will not get to the point and the art, while fine, isn't able to carry the load itself. Read Full Review

    There is no new Legion book on the docket. When this mini ends, who knows when we'll see more. I truly hope we go out on a high note. But this series has been a sort of a let down.  Solid art. Great dialogue. But really no plot progression.  Read Full Review

    The League isnt fighting the Legion or anyone besides bad scripting and bafflingly characterizations. This isnt a title Id recommend just to see how the story pays off. Given Bendis DC track record, itll be a slammed together conclusion with dim witted dialogue that makes spectacles of all the players. Read Full Review

    It's not worth following this series. There's literally nothing of interest going on and there's almost no chance anything of significance will happen. Read Full Review
