LEGION OF THREE WORLDS #1
In this exclusive sneak peek, get your first look at DC's 'Final Crisis' spinoff event by superstars Geoff Johns and George Perez!
By Kevin Mahadeo and Andy Serwin Posted 05/07/08

The Legion of Super-Heroes stand poised to go prime time in more ways than one.

Superstar creators Geoff Johns (Green Lantern, Justice Society of America) and George Perez (The Brave and the Bold) team up to present The Legion of Three Worlds, a five-issue, August-launching event mini-series spinning out Final Crisis. And as the title implies, readers get three Legion teams the original squad from Johns' recent run in Action Comics, the "Zero Hour" era version that went into limbo and the Mark Waid-Barry Kitson rebellious teen edition, currently in the hands of writer Jim Shooter for the price of one as presented by two of the biggest, hottest creators working in comics.

"You can equate it to what we did with [Green Lantern: Rebirth], but on a bigger scale," explains Johns. "It's involving Superman, the DCU as a whole and the 31st century. It's the Crisis of the 31st century. There's a story to tell, but the purpose is to reintroduce the concept of the Legion, spend some time there, see what they're all about, and clear up questions people have about them."

The story takes place in the aftermath of Johns' Legion story from Action Comics, as Earth of the 31st century finds itself caught in the grip of xenophobia. The United Planets, a conglomeration of worlds throughout the galaxy, have condemned Earth for its practices the government was exiling and interring aliens in concentration camps'and support for the Legion is at an all-time low.Into this atmosphere of paranoia and mistrust enters long-time Legion villain the Time Trapper, whose diabolical mechanizations in the form of an unexpected surprise villain you'll see on the last page of this exclusive preview are designed to destroy the Legion once and for all.

THE TEN GREATEST, MOST GROUNDBREAKING CREATIVE COLLABORATIONS IN WIZARD'S HISTORY
Check out this roundup of the creative teams that revolutionized comics
Part Three: KURT BUSIEK and GEORGE PEREZ
By Christopher Lawrence Posted 05/23/08

THE TEN GREATEST, MOST GROUNDBREAKING CREATIVE COLLABORATIONS IN WIZARD'S HISTORYKURT BUSIEK / GEORGE PEREZ During the mid-to-late-1990s, the "traditional" superhero story became something of a lost art form.

Pushed by the likes of Watchmen and Dark Knight and pulled by the thematic milieu of Vertigo, the classic, PG-rated tale of good versus evil found itself languishing at the back of the comics industry bus. Icons, the market seemed to say, were no longer as interesting as anti-heroes, the good guys no longer as cool as the grim.

Fortunately, neither Kurt Busiek nor George Perez got the memo.

Drawn together for Marvel's "Heroes Return" relaunch, Busiek and Perez did more than just bring back Earth's Mightiest Heroes, they catapulted them to prominence, rocketing Avengers Vol. 3 to the top of the comic sales charts, while driving themselves into the realm of mega-superstardom.

"Someone [at Marvel] had thought George was the guy to return the Avengers to glory, and offered him the book," Busiek remembers. "Clearly it was the right choice."
