    Two issues in, "Legion of Monsters" is a wildly fun layered romp, with a significant mystery buried at the center. Solid character work, strong writing, and recklessly wonderful art have come together to make one hell of a book. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 18, 2011

    The biggest problems with the issue come with the plot, which is already meandering somewhat aimlessly, making me worry about how it will fill 5 issues, and the price point. It may be an arbitrary assessment in my head, but 20 pages of story for $3.99 would have to be REALLY special for me not to grouse a little, and this book's overall entertainment value isn't quite there. I would have gone 3 stars (possibly 3.5) if the total package wasn't overpriced, and I say that as a long-term fan of Bloodstone, of Morbius, and as a proud owner of the original appearance of the LoM in magazine form. Legion of Monsters #2 takes a scenic route through a less-traveled bit of the Marvel Universe, earning a well-crafted 2.5 out of 5 stars overall. If Daimon and Johnny Blaze join up for a monthly ongoing, though, I'm in. Read Full Review
