    While I don't have high hopes for Legion Lost really lasting long term, it's a book that's definitely a lot of fun even if it may go the pathogen infected victim of the week. Read Full Review

    Overall I thought this was a good character driven issue. While long time Legion readers might appreciate it, it felt a little too early in this series and story to focus on one character rather than moving the whole team forward. We did get some more backstory, some glimpses of the Legion's interaction with the 21st century. And I felt this was a step up from last issue. Pete Woods art is his typical fantastic stuff. I do like this Wildfire suit more than the more recent one which was almost completely 'Kirby dots'. Read Full Review

    Taken all together, this book is the complete package. It provides a welcoming gateway with extraordinary characters, strong writing, and beautiful art. I may never have found a way to enjoy reading the Legion in any of their previous incarnations, but I'm glad I've found "Legion Lost." Read Full Review

    The second issue is a strong follow-up to the premiere. A villain from the future infects a man from the past. Doctor Jeffrey Scanlon undergoes a Wildfire-like transformation, and he doesn't believe the metamorphosis is a bad thing at all. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Oct 16, 2011

    In comparison to the nearly manic first issue, the second stalls trying to reestablish the groundwork for its premise and give an example of the series' direction to come. Let's hope, for the sake of Legion's future popularity, this is only one hump for the title's course. Read Full Review

    This issue was a big improvement over the previous and Im hoping Nicieza and Woods can keep it up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 12, 2011

    This book definitely shows potential, as well as some improvement from issue #1. Pete Woods' art is solid, and Nicieza proves he has a firm handle on at least some of the cast. It really all comes down to focus. A Legion book with a trimmed-down cast should manage a more cohesive and engaging storyline than Legion Lost has managed so far. Read Full Review
