    As much as I'm looking forward to the next issue of this comic to see what happens, I'm also dreading it, since the next issue is nearly the end of the series. Jim Shooter did his usual great job writing this comic, and cut out alot of the future speak that was driving me crazy! Read Full Review

    Technically speaking this is an average issue of Legion of Super-Heroes where the heroes uncover the links and engage in an ordinary day. The creative team's skill propels what should be mediocre to a higher level of entertainment. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 21, 2008

    This was a nice issue in terms of team dynamic for the LSHers, showing them all working together, and putting their diverse opinions (with the notable exception of Jeckie) to the test without excessive conflict. Nice character bits come through for Invisible Kid, Brainiac, Lightning Lad and others, but the whole Invader Planet storyline seems to have been going on for about two years now. I'm torn between being excited about the new adventures (pun fully intended) in store for the Legion and wishing that this iteration of the team could have a little more time to establish itself, but this issue read quick and went down easy... It's a breezy little look at LSH parliamentary procedure, and gives us some cheesecake to boot. Legion of Super-Heroes #48 earns a well-done 3 out of 5 stars, and at least my usual 'writing for the trade' complaint is moot. This time, I know exactly when this storyline will be wrapping up.
