Week of 4 November 2009

I did not see any Legion content in DC Comics this week.

In a rather pointless story in SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #9 (1/09), we learn that the whole universe is watching what's happening on New Krypton. One can only wonder why: are there their lives that boring? Because frankly, with no Legionnaires and very little of consequence going on, there's really not a lot of point in watching what happens on New Krypton.

At least Tyr-Van, Superman's cute ex-boyfriend from the Labor Guild, is still around. Apparently, members of the Labor Guild are supposed to do whatever their supervisors command. That leads to interesting naughty speculations, and would certainly provide the rest of the universe something more worth watching....

Meanwhile, it's been nearly two months and Jimmy Olsen is still floating dead in Metropolis harbor. Just thought I'd mention that.

Has anyone noticed that while the Legion, after celebrating its 50th anniversary, has no book of its own, while the Imperial Guard (the evil twin of the LSH) stars in its own 5-issue mini-series?

I don't know what DC is building up to, but it had better be good.

Finally, someone noticed noticed Jimmy's absence -- his girlfriend shows up at the Planet looking for him, and now Perry knows something is us....
