OK, since I haven't been around here much lately, here's some important stuff that you have probably read elsewhere already:
- Former Legion writer Mindy Newell is back writing, this time for ComicMix.
- Paul Levitz will be writing a new DCnU miniseries (that makes THREE series at once, for 6 months!) on the secret origin of the Legion, with art by returning veteran Chris Batista and inker Rich Perotta.
...This large-scale sci-fi odyssey delves into the secrets behind the scenes, including explaining how the organization known as the United Planets originally formed.
- The DCU Source had an interview with Levitz and Francis Portela on the new Legion series.
- If you didn't see it, Jim Shooter last month had a story on "Super Lad", a new Superboy-like character intended to be introduced during his run.
- Surprisingly, Legion Archives vol 13 has been solicited for next March:
