[Legion Fan Club] and other interested parties, it’s time to reach back with the Mind’s Eye to that time in Legion legend soon after Zero Hour in the mid 1990’s, when two separate publications ran neck and neck in storytelling unison once again, harkening back to the great two series concept of the mid 80s in Legion publishing epochs.
We give you: Legionnaires #24-26, Legion of Super-Heroes (V.4) Annual #67-69, with a copious amount of time to slowly take it all in.
Stop by often as at a watering hole to refresh your spirit reading, reminiscing and explaining to the rest of us what is going on, pro and con, in these issues in your view!
