That Damned Reprint

Bleeding Cool is reporting that copies of the mis-printed and recalled Legion reprint of "Legion of the Damned" are being sold on eBay for $30.

Technically titled "DC Comics Presents: Legion Of Superheroes: Legion Of The Damned 100 Page Spectacular" #1, the new version will have a white logo instead of a yellow one.

Legion of the Damned Reprints

So we finally get a reprint trade paperback of "Legion of the Damned" - the four-part arc that closed out LSH v4/Legionnaires, by Abnett/Lanning/Coipiel - and it turns out that it's printed in the wrong order! Oops.

According to posters at the DC Message Boards and, the volume was recalled the day it came out.

The chapters were supposed to be printed as
1. Legion of Super-Heroes (v4) #122
2. Legionnaires #79
3. Legion of Super-Heroes (v4) #123
4. Legionnaires #80

But instead, they were printed as chapters 2, 4, 1, and 3 in that order. Way to go, reprint editor!

Things that make you go "huh?"

From the Home Office in Webster, Texas, here are the Top Ten Legion moments that make you go "Huh?"

10. Steve Ditko Archives: The Legion Years
9. The Omen & Prophet Saga
8. I Dream of Sneckie
7. Sure, Keith, go ahead and use those thick black markers, they're better than fine lined inking
6. A five-year gap? That could work...
5. Reboot? I guess so, that couldn't make things any more confusing
4. Reboot? Sure, why not, we've already had one, what's one more?
3. We don't need no stinking Superboy! We can write around that.
2. If we take Superboy & the Legion out of "Adventure Comics" and make them a backup strip in "Action Comics", they'll totally love Supergirl instead.
1. Despite having one of the universe's richest men as their benefactor, the Legion lets Superboy leave over a tax issue, because if Supergirl left then the Legion of Super-Pets would leave too.

Sorry, no good April Fools joke this year. But go back and read my earlier ones from when I was funny.
