I had high hopes for this, but the story wasn't very interesting. Not thrilled with Diana and Hal being replaced by Donna and John, either.

Such absolute, complete garbage. It's bad enough that they let Bendis write another Legion related book, but to add the absolutely awful drawings (can't really call it art) by Rossmo is even worse. If I could rank this any lower, I would.

I really wish DC would give the Legion a title with a good writer and artist.

I keep asking myself was there any point in shoehorning Legion into Future State to begin with. After all, the series tells stories with pretty much countless protagonists - some returning, others being merely one-offs. It is kinda baffling to me that such a giant ensemble comic ended up with 2 issue long micro story. And one that I think fails on every possible level, at that. The script is borin more

Thanks for the recommendations, I'll definitely try these out the next time I order a batch of TPs for y collection :) Yeah, it's tragic Spurrier's Hellblazer was cancelled. The mermaid issue still haunts me (in a good way). It was so good.

Psycamorean - Feb 24, 2021

Yeah, I just went and bought the entirety of the available TPs for the original Hellblazer run the other week. It was a bit expensive, but that original Vertigo run is some of my favorite comics ever so it was worth it to me. And 100% agreed about that mermaid issue, we need more comics like that. Much better than shit like Future State: LoSH.

An unenjoyable read. Hard to call it a Superman story when the character of Superman only appears on 10 pages out of a 21 page story. Only 47% of the 1st story deals with Superman and for the entire book only 17% of it has to do anything with Superman.

I give it a 3 solely for Mann's art which is as great as ever, but the story was pure horseshit. Yes, the usual King fanboys will rate it with 10, 9.5 or 9 but don't believe that, they would rate it the same way if King would fill the book with "Bat", "Cat" and "Mreeeow", they're just brainwashed and want so badly to feel smart.

Okay first of all, I am a Tom King fanboy, I do admit that. I like most of his work, except HiC. Being upset about his run at all is fine with me, especially if you felt betrayed by issue 50. I think a lot of people did. I did come off as a bit hostile. My bad. I'm in the wrong. I have seen large groups of people harassing Tom King and everything he does, I may have mistaken you for that. Also again nothing wrong with disagreeing with me on his Batman.

I really think it's a shame.... I've been reading comics for a very long time and I've been around for when Black Lightning was first introduced and for when Mal and Karen got involved with the Titans. I loved all of it and this series just put a spin on it that I did not enjoy at all and it actually took away from these characters.

I was really looking forward to see what that had here for the Legion and I was very disappointed when I opened it up to see that it was written by Bendis. His run on the Legion was awful, so it didn't give me great expectations here, but I was willing to give it a try. Then, I see that the art is by Riley Rossmo and as usual, his art is just awful.

If big stand alone elseworld events like Future State exist to experiment and take established characters in new unpredictable directions, what's the reason for keeping the very same writer who's responsible for their main continuity entries? Wouldn't it be a good opportunity to bring in fresh blood who could do something new and fresh with them, even if only for 1 or 2 issues?
