OK gang, it's time for LOSH #23, "Aftermath," and you all know what THAT means....

On the upside, we do get lovely Kevin Maguire art for Aftermath. If you've ever wanted to see what Maguire could do with Bouncing Boy - and if not, why not?!? - this ish is your chance.

Everything since the crash is a cauchemar. )

And that's it until some other creator decides to reopen the toybox. Long Live the Legion!

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?

Four pages from Legion #19, out today. Except for a brief check-in with the crash-landed team, almost the entire issue is Mon-El going toe-to-toe with the Emerald Empress on Weber's World.

Pretty green death! )
Mods, there's no tag yet for the second artist on this ish, Jeff Johnson, can we get one or are we totally maxed out now? He did about half the ish (as you see from the credits on the first posted page) and I hate to just ignore him.

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?

LOSH #10 is just out, and it's setting up for the next big story arc. I bring you 3 & 1/3 pages to give you the general idea.

Last issue: Some creepozoid monsternasties teleported into Brainiac 5's lab to kidnap him, despite Harmonia and Dream Girl's best defenses; Brainy got snatched, and Dreamy got taken along for the ride.

We've escaped from worse. )

Technically the kidnappers are unidentified, but the Legion has, let us say, a very strong suspicion. But despite a covert intel assault on the suspects' Earth embassy and current leader Mon-El's impassioned plea to the council, the United Planets and Earthgov have forbidden the Legion from making any move against their suspects.

So what's a team to do? Splinter over the issue, of course.

We're not leaving any Legionnaires behind. )
So help is on the way, and that's a good thing! Right?

Right? )
It's a little early to start placing bets, but it should be interesting to see how the odds on that prophecy of Dreamy's shape up as the arc progresses.

Incidentally, I think Star Boy is in that chair because of ongoing effects of the process of restoring his sanity after his return from the 21st century. (Unless he got whomped in the Saturn Queen's New Legion of Super-Villains arc and I've forgotten? Anyone?) Reference has been made to his having rehab sessions, but I believe the end of last ish was the first time we'd seen him use an assistive device to get around.

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.
