    When you have a book with a cast the size of the Legion, you need to keep up and catch up on all of them. We have 4-5 distinct settings, groups, and plots in this issue. It felt full but went fast. The art is dazzling. I want more now. And that is always a good sign. Long Live this Legion. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 24, 2020

    So while I think Legion of Super-Heroes #11 could benefit from a little focus on the part of its narrative, it still manages to deliver an enjoyable read that sets up what could be a huge finale to the Legions confrontation with Zaar. Read Full Review

    The Positives definitely outweigh the negatives. Legion of Super-Heroes #11 is one of the best issues of the run, so far. The series has a real chance if it continues to move in this direction. Despite some questionable characterizations that don't provide an affability with these versions, there's enough here to be excited about. Though, there's an equal amount of concern for the next issue as this series has been erratic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 25, 2020

    In this series, the art and inks continue to be gorgeously rendered by Ryan Sook and Wade Von Grawbadger, respectively. The multi-plotted complexity of what hints at a Darkseid presence, coupled with long-delayed revelations concerning Rogol Zaar and Mon-el's background, suggests that there might be something worth waiting for in the future. Just don't hold your breath.  Bendis has proven he has no qualms disappointing readers, whether by aging up a fan-beloved Jon Kent, screwing up Young Justice, or squandering a yearlong Superman storyline that began with Man of Steel. 'Hope' no longer springs eternal in the present DCU. Here's hoping that the future holds more promise.  Read Full Review

    Legion of Super-Heroes continues to tell a half-dozen stories at once and that pacing meets the needs of the series"providing at least one turning point in each plot line while providing its populous cast with plenty of spreads to shine. Read Full Review

    These issues are starting to wear thin. Change a picture here, load stilted dialogue there. Last issue I had hope, but this issue… not so much! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 3, 2020

    Okay, okay, not completely done. There's one more issue before the series goes into Future State that I'll begrudgingly pick up just to see if there's anything there worth hanging onto. But I suspect in a post-Future State world we're going to have Bendis writing the series when it picks up again and that will not have me coming back to it. As much hope as I had at the beginning, this is one of the worst writer/book pairings that I've seen in decades. Read Full Review
