The Legion will probably be back after Doomsday Clock.

I'm hoping this is a preamble to the return of the Legion.

Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp do what they do best and get WEIRD. Additionally Shout out to Tom Orzechowski's lettering, which is some of the best I've seen in a mainstream super-hero book in a while.

Lemire is drawing on a lot of classic Legion of Super-Heroes ideas here while also tying things in with his own universe. While the art is serviceable, I was hoping for something a little stronger in the layouts, maybe creating a strong parallel between the idealistic future-past and the dystopian future-present.

Still, its giving me my future space heroes fix, can't ask for much else.

Amazing world building, a complex protagonist, and just enough of that Spurrier WTF that the world needs more of. The art captures this running down post-apoc fantasy world perfectly. The extra length of this first issue really makes the $4 cover price worth it for once. 20 pages for $4 is always a hard sell, meaning sadly, as much as I love this first issue. I'll likely be waiting for digital pri more

First a note, I don't like Rob Liefeld's comic work. I hear he's generally a great guy, he's contribution to the indie comic revolution can't be understated, and I hear regardless of everything else, he's a workhorse. But I am not a fan.

I bought this issue, and plan to buy the next two, based on Michel Fiffe's name alone. Much like how I got into Brandon Graham's Prophet, Erik Larsen's more
