DON'T FEAR THE LEGION

DC's version of the Dirty Dozen

In February of 2007, I met with Julian Darius, publisher of my first book, and threw out some ideas for a follow-up. I suggested a bunch of things that I thought would make interesting book topics and ended by saying, "but what I'd really like to do is a book about 'The Legion of Super-Heroes."

(excerpt)

From the looks of "Final Crisis: The Legion of Three Worlds," Johns will cherry pick one Legion team from the Reboot era and another from the Threeboot era and combine them with his own version of the post-Levitz/Giffen team as seen recently in "Action Comics." If you like what he does, jump into the Legion with the above list as your guide. There's plenty of future history to go around. Don't be shy. There's no reason to fear the Legion.

In addition to writing reviews and columns for COMIC BOOK RESOURCES, Timothy Callahan is the writer of "Grant Morrison: The Early Years" and editor of the upcoming "Teenagers from the Future" anthology. More of his thoughts on comics can be seen every day at the Geniusboy Firemelon blog.
