One thumb down for the TPB (updated)

Nala doesn't like the new TPB, LSH v5 vol. 1: Teenage Revolution.

It isn't necessarily that it is bad. It just isn't Legion of Super-Heroes really. I suppose it is somewhat like the new Battlestar Galactica is to the old 70s series to some degree.


I think I would really have gotten into this if these were new characters and didn't try to something that evokes the Legion. That's where it ultimately fails for me on so many levels.

Update 11/23/05: Nala discovered the cover to the upcoming LSH 15.

all I could say was "holy jesus" in my best George Takei voice!

While I'm sticking with it for a bit (I'm enough of a Legion junkie to have stuck through Gerry Conway's and Roy Thomas' stints so I can give Waid some more rope), my feelings about the new series are pretty much like Nala's.

(I'm not sure what to make of the Newsarama [by way of Wizard] report that the post-Infinite Crisis name of the book is going to be SUPERGIRL & THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES.)
