For our Week 17 Legion of Super-Heroes Club Weekly Reader Book Club literary excursion, we continue to gaze upon the first Keith Giffen work for Legion with Paul Levitz, circa 1982.
The Legion Club proudly presents: The Great Darkness Saga Conclusion! THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (1980-) #290-294 (5 issues, whew!).
#290: DC Universe
#291: DC Universe
#292: DC Universe
#293: DC Universe
#294: DC Universe
Questions to ponder and discuss:
First, the artwork. By the end of this narrative, many agree that Keith Giffin finally hits his stride as one of the great comic book artist / storytellers. What do you like and / or not like about his style by the end of the saga?
Did having every possible hero and villain in the Legion universe involved in this storyline work well? Why or why not?
Is the conclusion reasonable and believable within this fictional world? Why or why not?
Any thoughts on the baby?
