    So yes we have the confirmation of Yera being alive, the introduction of the military Black Razors, and the discovery of Alastor being alive. But I still felt the movement of the plague-story was a baby step here. The real step forward was the characterization of Dawnstar. I have really come to love this 'monthly narrator' trend in this book as it allows the reader to really get a feel for the character. Good stuff here. And Pete Woods remains a favorite of mine. His work on this book continues to improve and sparkle. Read Full Review

    Nicieza may not be long for this series, but the work he's done to this point is the type of fun and adventure that I want to find in my comics. "Legion Lost" has certainly found its way onto my must-read list. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Dec 20, 2011

    Timber Wolf isn't the only Legionnaire that exhibits a bit of fun. Wildfire and Tyroc, in excellent form this issue, also provide wit. All and all, a good, solid issue of Legion Lost. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 19, 2011

    Long story short? This one is good. Legion Lost is some of the most successful LSH storytelling since Geoff Johns brought the original team back in Action Comics some years ago, and the use of a limited group of Legionnaires has seldom been so versatile. I'm still a little bit unclear on what Alastor is doing or what he wants, but this issue reveals a little more about his motivation and backstory, all the while emphasizing Dawnstar's alien nature and alienation. Just the fact that Tyroc has been cool as hell has this series on the positive side of the ledger for me, but add to that some truly pretty art, and you've got a winner on your hands. Legion Lost #4 is good stuff, building on the momentum of the relaunch to tell a fresh story, earning a very strong 4 out of 5 stars overall. If you've wondered what happened to the best parts of 90′s comic storytelling, this issue might be a good place to start looking... Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 21, 2011

    While still the Legion title to beat, it hasn't quite worked out all the kinks just yet. Nicieza needs to just settle down and focus, because these constant twists and turns are getting a little fractious and confusing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Dec 14, 2011

    I don't know what it is about this book, but I keep pulling for it to up its ante. It may be the same thing that makes me root for underdogs in sporting events in which I have no stake, but I think there's something to this premise and cast upon which its creators can capitalize. I don't know where the plot will go from here, but the optimist in me says up. Read Full Review
