Well, this was...messy. Two full pages and individual panels to make up maybe a third page and a half.

There must still be hidden defenses! )

And so hastily ends the Fatal Five Destroy Everything arc. Next issue, we tie up ... THE UNIVERSE ... as the series ends.

Art is by the tagless Jeff Johnson on pencils and Andy Smith on inks.

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.

Sorry I'm so late with this gang, had minor surgery this week that's slowed me down. However, here's 4 pages from LOSH #20, "Vanishing World," the latest installment of the Fatal Five saga.

It's a wise child who knows the way home. )

The plan, it seems to me, is not exactly coming together. Yet.

Tag notes: Mods, I accidentally clicked creator: francis manapul as well as actual artist Francis Portela's tag, can you delete? Also, I could've sworn we had a White Witch tag already?

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?

Hi ho Legion fans, 4 pages from LOSH #17 here. Remember the last page of last ish, how a complex quark relay station quietly goes about its business...until suddenly it doesn't? Well, as David said in Prometheus, big things have small beginnings, and so to this ish's title, "The Beginning of the End"!

Total system failure... )
NEXT ISSUE tagline: It Gets Worse. Whooboy.

Incidentally, anybody heard any word on where/when the Legion Lost crew is likely to fetch up next?

One of my favorite comic book deaths, probably because it was my first.

From Superboy #203, written by Cary Bates, art by Mike Grell.

I've chosen not to reproduce the first 13 or so pages of this comic, mainly just to keep the page count legal. So, a quick summary of the events up until now.

The story begins with several uniformed invaders entering Legion headquarters, attempting to access the Legion museum. All are thwarted save one, who turns out to be Element Lad. That's right, it's a Legion training exercise--but there should have been a Legionnaire on duty in the museum. It turns out that Invisible Kid was on duty, but he appears collapsing on the floor.

They take him to the infirmary and after a mento scan then find that he was more or less shirking his duties, as he was visiting another dimension at the time to see his up to now unknown girlfriend Myla. Her dimension only seems accessible to Invisible Kid, as his powers allow him to visit the dimension. Well, current Legion leader Mon-El is pissed, and forbids him from turning invisible for a week. Invisible Kid isn't happy, but accepts his punishment. He plans to return to the dimension after his punishment is over and ask Myla to be his wife.

On with the story )

One of the reasons I've always loved this story is seeing just how much of a bad ass Validus really was. He pretty much punked the Legion out without breaking a sweat. I don't think he's given this sort of treatment anymore.
