TPB reviews: Darkseid and the Teenage Revolution

[edited for formatting]

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that Comics Should Be Good was asking for suggestions on trade paperbacks to read. The new Legion TPB was one of those mentioned favorably. Well, he's read the book by now, along with The Great Darkness Saga TPB (For those keeping track, those are from The Legion of Super-Heroes volumes 2 and 5.), and he offers a review of each. Bottom line: GDS gets "I was always curious about this story, but it just didn't do it for me", while Teenage Revolution gets a cautious "yes":

It's too easy to make this a generational fight, and although he tried to mitigate a bit throughout the book, it wasn't enough. I didn't like that aspect of it, and it bothered me the whole time I was reading it. If it doesn't bother you, I say go for it - it's a fun superhero book.

You know, "Darkseid and the Teenage Revolution" would be a good name for a rock band.
