We are only reading two comics this week due to the Watchalong Legion club activity this week at 9 pm Eastern Wednesday August 7th.
Next month: Part two with the conclusion of Earthwar which covers the next three issues!!!
Next week: Back to the Great Darkness Saga!!
Here are questions to use as a guide to your reflection on this story: (these could be spoilers, so maybe read this part after you are done with the 2 comics):
What is your opinion of the various alien groups shown in issue #241? Which did you feel were best presented and why?
Who do you think the group of 5 hooded figures plotting against Earth and the Legion are? Why?
Did “Girls Night Out” work for you in presenting how powerful the female Legion members are? Why or why not?
