Questions abound in the third issue of this hot new series! What does Timber Wolf have in common with Red Rage, a creature that eats the marrow from its victim's bones? What secret does Tyroc hide in plain sight? And what frightening truth does Tellus uncover?

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 21, 2011

    So this book continues to get better and better. I still don't know just how accessible this book would be for a brand new reader, a Legion novice. But the switching narrator, the characterization, and the action are all working for me now.  As I said, the definition of savagery in this issue was a nice them by Nicieza. And Pete Woods is is firing on all cylinders. Let's hope the momentum continues to propel this book forward! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 11, 2011

    This issue provides a look into the mind of one of the most underrated Legionnaires, and provides us with a little bit of action and some intrigue to get us going. There are still some issues with Alaktor as a villain and his overall reason for doing whatever he's been doing, but the book looks good, it reads well, and the cast is fun. It's still the superior version of the Legion being offered (although the sister title is improving from their rather dismal debut) and Fabian & Pete are making the team as fresh as a fifty-year-old book filled with time paradox and alternate universes can be. Legion Lost #3 leaves me with an overall happy feeling, something that hasn't happened in quite a while, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. I may be emotionally swayed by the threads that may lead to the return of Chameleon Girl in this issue, but we are who we are partly because of our biases, right? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 15, 2011

    This issue has all the right elements for future success: strong character work, lively action, amusing future-clashes-with-past moments, with just a teensy bit of angst on the side. If Nicieza can play up these qualities and leave behind the squabbling and moaning, we might have an engaging Legion title for once. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Nov 9, 2011

    It's probably no secret, but this title is likely on its way out. I wouldn't go so far as to start up a grassroots movement to save the title, but I think that that is a bit of a shame. There's potential here, especially in light of the revelations toward issue #3's conclusion. If you're still looking for a title to take a flyer on (and somehow your wallet can handle it), give Legion Lost a chance. This issue may be the turning point it needs to become something worthy of your money. Read Full Review
