    Legion of Super Heroes #39 was a fantastic read. Shooter has returned the fun and excitement to this title. Once again, I get pumped up in anticipation with the newest issue of the Legion of Super Heroes. It is so refreshing to have a writer on the legion that understands the characters and gives us a read worthy of the Legion's origins instead of his own personal fantasies of how the Legionnaires should act totally irrespective of the history and origin of the Legion.

    Newcomers to the Legion and those who are wary to jump into a book that's already nearly 40-issues deep and stars fifty year-old characters (albeit modern variations of them), should note that Jim Shooter comes from the age and school of thought of comic book writers who truly believe that every issue should be accessible to first-time readers, which means this issue – the third part of his arc – is still incredibly easy to follow for non-Legion fans. I highly recommend getting on board this title, if not to experience a well-told soap opera, than to witness a silver-age comics legend working with an Image-styled artist like Francis Manapul. It's a fascinating combination, and dare I say that it works pretty damn well. Read Full Review

    Then we get to the underwear scenes. Whereas it seemed like Shooter was previously arguing for a different set of social mores here it looks like Republicans got a hold of the book and started censoring things. Read Full Review
