    Worth the 2,99 $ (CDN) price of admission. After the letdown of the last issue, the title is improving again, and I anticipate that this book may soon be in the top 10 of DC titles if the next storyline is as good as anticipated. Read Full Review

    So overall this was a nice story and this was a nice issue. The art was very good, the nods to continuity were solid, and we are on the cusp of the Dominator arc. So not bad. But I wasn't really wowed. And I really want to be wowed by the Legion. Read Full Review

    "Legion of Super-Heroes" has been a long-time favorite and Levitz's original return was a good thing. Lately, though, this book has turned into a commitment rather than something to look forward to; the spark of exciting new ideas is curiously absent. Without it, the title's not going to succeed. I'm not sure if we need new creators or just a jumpstarted idea added in, but whatever it is, I hope it happens soon. "Legion of Super-Heroes" #8 looks great, but the story doesn't live up to how it's drawn. Read Full Review
