I did get my copy of the hardcover collection of Legion Lost. I re-read the series, and while I can see many reasons that people liked it, it really wasn't my cup of tea. I guess I just prefer my Legion a bit less dark and miserable.
Ah, well. It's still good to see the Legion popular enough for DC to feel they can make money off a hardcover like this.
Makes me think of some other series I'd like to see in hardcover or trade paperback. Just off the top of my head:
- The death of Superboy
- The Universo Project (maybe combined with "The Condemned Legion" from Adventure)
- The Conspiracy storyline
- The Emerald Empress series from late in the Levitz/Giffen run
- Secrets of the LSH and Who's Who in the LSH in one volume
- A Legion Weddings collection, including "The Weddings that Wrecked the Legion," Chuck & Luornu's wedding, Garth & Imra's wedding, Ultra Boy & Apparition getting hitched in the Earth-247 Legion, and probably one or two others I've forgotten
- End of an Era
- The whole 20th Century Exile storyline from Earth-247
- A collection of Brainiac 5 Goes Crazy stories
- Legionnaires 3 and Cosmic Boy
- A collection of Legion of Substitute Heroes stories
- Legion Worlds
Okay, DC, that should keep you busy for a while. Release these over the next couple of years, and you can charge me $20-$30 apiece. I'm stupid, I'll pay.
What about the rest of you? What Legion series would you like to see released in bound form?
