    Despite the lack of Francis Manapul, Shooter and Greene's team up with sharp inking from Nathan Massengill and brilliant color from Jo Smith make this issue another winner. Read Full Review

    Another great story that moves along the various plots that Shooter has been building. The only fault was the art did not match the story. The quality of Shooter's writing makes this comic worth buying. Buy up the back issues and get up to speed. You will not regret it. Read Full Review

    What would be complicated is crystal clear thanks to Shooter's ability to focus on each member as a player in a larger organization, and things finally look slightly up for the beleaguered team, at least until the latest threat to the solar system arises. Even then, who does Earthgov call for help? That's right, the possessors of those wondrous flight rings. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 24, 2008

    While all of the Legion's problems just magically disappear or get solved in this issue, I still found myself liking it for the characters. It's no Must Read, but it's far from an Avoid It, too. Read Full Review

    What I am going to complain about until the day I die is the curse-substitution language. "Florg that," "Let's show them who they're zorking with" The obnoxious loophole that writers like Shooter and the folks that put that "frack" back in Battlestar Ga-crap-tica (yeah, I went there) is a complete turn-off and almost a waste of my time. I even view it as a sign of bad writing. Rather than finding a way to circumvent the curse words entirely and writing, perhaps, better and more inventive dialogue, writers like Shooter decide that now is a good time to throw in a zork, florg, etc. Look, I don't care what you have to do, just don't make me read the word "zork" again.
