More reviews of LSH 12

[edited to correct spelling]

Aya at Heroine Battleground likes the new book, especially you-know-who's arm-twisting appearance this issue.

There are parts of this Legion, that remind me of the 70s and early 80s. Some of the costumes are pretty cute or even sexy.

Now together with this picture [Princess Projectra] I can say, that the current run is a bit like a best-of Legion with elements from the 70s 80s and 90s. I like that. Give us more of that. I will stay with the title.

Sean Maher liked it too. Well, "liked" may not be the right word:
I really loved Legion of Super-Heroes this week. I mean, I fuckin' loved it. The title has come under fire of late for what folks are calling "pacing issues" or an overall slowness of the central plot. I really can't agree with you folks at all.

Kevin Brown at Silver Bullet Comics gives both the main and backup stories a thumbs up.
Waid knows what he's doing here. He's putting all the pieces in place. Showing us all exactly what the Legion is made of and how they handle the most extreme of situations. You can definitely tell he loves this book and its characters. He's having fun, and it's showing through to the reader. I have no idea how Waid is going to wrap this 13-issue epic up in the next issue, but he has me eager to find out. He definitely has this long-time Legion fan excited.

"Now Playing" Magazine's Tony Whitt gives another good review:
This has been one of the Legion's best years in a long time, and I can't wait to see how this first storyline resolves. Long Live the Legion! A-

Wow! I have been linked. Thanks a lot.
Sadly my name is misspelled. It's Aya and not Ava. And yes, I mean what I write. I know many consider the times of the disco legion as bad, but I liked it - at least I liked the costumes. And the new run has costumes that tend to go into that direction, but are not so over-the-top as they were back then. The stories are not as brainless, too. So I have high hopes fot the book.
