Well, that made for a nice Thanksgiving Eve read, before going out to watch the younguns celebrate being back with friends.
LSH 279, Wait Reflecto wasn’t Jo but really Kal , what an unexpected twist.
Legionnaires 50 and 51, it was nice seeing The Legion fight like a team and not individuals, poor Mordru . Also, something we don’t get to see is the aftermath of a tilt titanic battle, enjoyed that perspective. I do wish Monstress had knocked Leland’s block off though. Did I see that VI wasn’t shrinking anymore?
Adventure 518,519 Superboy seeing his past, and death; I know he forgets when he returns, but that’s gotta mess you up while remembering. A romp on the ol Kent farm, a fun tale.

Ohhh a few of these don’t sound familiar? I might have something old/new to read!!! I will be checking all issues & if I haven’t read that bride of Mordru yet? I’ll be doin all 4. Ty @Don-El for these selections.

Nice, I’m in business. I’d read the bride of Mordru but…I read the storylines involved in crossovers (& the back and forth with legionnaires) only, in that volume & the Adventure Comics as well. I added both to my library. I’ve got a bunch of clean up issues & even quite a few storylines I left behind!!! Those exclamation marks can’t justify my true excitement. Never b4 read LOSH issues!!! Yes :raised_hands: ty @Don-El I probably (almost positively) would’ve never realized that. Was just about to log off, but I gotta do at least a couple now :laughing:

Man, I got the dreaded hit read & directly to the last page on my 1st 10 attempts. Marked as unread, but I’ve read em. I hate when that happens. Hoping for some luck :four_leaf_clover: , but, 10/10 to start is a bad omen.

Sorry, Site is complaining cuz I’m posting so much in a row lol. But….this is weird. 1st of all…somehow I’d never read Adventure Comics #1, but, way stranger then that. They marked Shadow Lass as Night Girl & Vice Versa, Night Girl as Shadow Lass?


Unless there’s something going on in this issue cuz it is towards the beginning. But, I doubt all of em would be correct except those two?

Great batch of selections - I don’t think I’ve read the Adventure Comics one, but the rest are favorites.

Like a lot of you, I really loved the Reflector story - I think it may have been one of the really long saga-type stories - it lasts longer than EarthWar and GDS and has lots of great twists and turns.

Legionnaires 50 and 51 are among my favorite Legion stories ever - even though half the team is in the 20th century, they pull in members from other teams and the whole coordination of the team to rescue Violet and defeat Mordru was extremely well done with everyone doing something, which is a nice lesson some of the newer Legion writers could take to heart. :wink:
