For our Week 13 Legion of Super-Heroes Club Weekly Reader Book Club agenda, trend-setting club that the Legion Club is, we finally dare to peek at the first Keith Giffen work for Legion with Paul Levitz, circa 1982.
The Legion Club proudly presents: (ta da)
The Great Darkness Saga Part 1 (we’re looking at you, Darkseid): THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (1980-) #287-289 with THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (1980-) Annual #1
THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (1980-) #287 Chameleon Boy leads the Espionage Squad to the Khund homeworld.
THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (1980-) #288 A team of Legionnaires travel to Orando to help Projectra regain the throne from her treacherous cousin and grandmother.
THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (1980-) #289 Time is running out for the marooned Legionnaires while the rest of the team scours the universe trying to find them.
THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (1980-) Annual #1 An old Legion of Super-Heroes villain returns! A young girl in the Legion medical bay suddenly awakens and begins taking control of the team’s computer systems.
Our “extra credit” reading this week: There are three issues just prior to the Great Darkness storyline featuring Paul Levitz and the “new Legion era” with Pat Broderick as artist (the credits also note some sort of Keith Giffen presence, but the comic books themselves don’t state this).
