Four pages from LOSH #21, "Endings: Part One," or, the battle of Metropolis.

I won't keep you in suspense: As of this issue, the Fatal Five are still the Fatal Four (three if you don't count Validus, who's floating in orbit where the Sorcerors' World used to be). This had better be the reveal to end all reveals after this buildup.

Moving on, however...

You are all dead - you simply haven't fallen in your graves yet! (no, not a Didio quote) )

Art on this issue is by Jeff Johnson, who I don't believe has a tag.

Back again with four pages from the hot off the press Legion of Super-Heroes #18, part 2 of the return of the Fatal Five. You'll recall that last issue in part 1, things fell apart rather spectacularly. We spent all our time with two teams of Legionnaires last issue; this time we check in with the rest, and things aren't looking any better on the home front.

There's nothing we can do! )

So that's four out of five accounted for: Tharok, Persuader, Validus and the one in the next ish teaser. Will it be faithful old Mano, or someone new in the fifth slot?

Things are still building slowly in this weeks LOSH #14, but they are building. Four pages.

You start the fire - I'll provide plenty of fuel. )

Love that teaser for next ish, because "Witch in a Time Storm" means either Glorith or Mysa will be turning up. Either would be dandy by me!

OK, so the work on this primer kind of got away from me, mea culpa. But I now have it complete up to the current "The Culling" crossover arc.

In Part 1, we saw how Yera was duped into impersonating Shrinking Violet for months on end, during which time "Vi" secretly married Colossal Boy. Yera was exposed, Vi was rescued, Gim and Yera decided to stay married, and all was on track for them all to live happily ever after.

But first, they gotta tell Gim's parents...

in a story called 'Guess What's Coming to Dinner?' No, really. )

And you can tune in to Legion Lost for more Chameleon Girl, now that The Culling is wrapping up!

Hello s_d! As promised back in my last Legion Lost post, here is a Chameleon Girl retrospective. Because this is gonna be too huge, I'm breaking it into two parts: pre- and post-Conspiracy. Second part will go up tomorrow if my computer cooperates. Images from Legion of Super-Heroes 288-305 in this part.

In this part we ask the eternal question, When is a Shrinking Violet not a Shrinking Violet? Is it when she suddenly starts entertaining advances from the guy who's had a crush on her forever? Or is it when she gets called out on same by her boyfriend of record?



Or is the answer...something far more sinister? dun dun DUNNNNN

pace Vic Sage, 'Obvious, in hindsight' )

So ends part 1 of our tale. I don't think it's much of an exaggeration to say this plot was the most interesting thing to happen to Shrinking Violet and/or Colossal Boy in years. Plus, it falls during my personal pick for Keith Giffen/Larry Mahlstedt art at the top of its game.

Next up, pretty much all of Yera's post-conspiracy appearances.

jelly_ace asked for a reprise of Package Week. I had been thinking about that ever since we saw those peen-tastic Cry For Justice pages the other week, and offered to repost my original Package Week entry, since I've still got it all in my photobucket - and it turns out, the text in my inbox full of old replies. :D

Direct from November 2008, my Package Week entry! )

Pretty nice little issue. It consists of 3 10-page stories, 1 starring the Legion in the 31st century, 1 with Mon-El and Conner in the 21st century, and 1 with a look at General Lane's private war; all point the reader to Last Stand of New Krypton #1, coming to the stands soon.

I've got crops (not my own scans) of two pages of the 21st century story for y'all today; if the first page seems a little disjointed it's because it's half of a two-page spread. I sincerely hope this little scene has smutficcers out there hard at work as we speak...
What I have to speak to Conner about...it's sensitive. )

One page from Superman #697, in which the Legion Espionage Squad reunites.

Oh yeah, the Legion's back )

And the request: I just finished reading The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy and the History of Comic Book Heroines. It mentions at one point in the 1990s the Wasp of the Avengers started mutating into an actual wasp? Does anyone have scans of this?

In the final months of the threeboot book the Legion was joined by the young M'rissy. At the time I thought it was obviously how Shooter saw himself in his early years writing the Legion but went on to discover the name M'rissy is actually referring to a fan of the Legion who had since died, Rich Morrissey. (His writings about Coluan Lifespans, from the Legion Fanzine 'legion outpost' is available in 'the best of the Legion outpost' on amazon)
