DC Comics Finally Collects "Legion Lost"
Okay, DC- you've got an incredible artist who draws superheroes and mecha with equal proficiency. You've got, in Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning a literally best selling writing team- authors respected in sci-fi circles more than they are as comic writers thanks to their awesome Warhammer 40,000 novels. You've got a Legion of Superheroes story that's self contained, a great introduction to new readers and filled with some amazing moments.
And you idiots wait nearly 10 years to collect it in trade.
Well, good news. I just saw the solicits on Newsarama (here: http://www.newsarama.com/comics/dc-april-2011-solicitations-110120.html) and Legion Lost will finally be available as a $39.99 hardcover in June, with Legion of the Damned (the preceding story arc, available in April as a lower cost trade paperback). And I'm sure the Legion Lost hardback will be replaced with a lower cost TPB soon enough, I'm not waiting.
Hopefully, this means Legion Worlds and the restarted DnA Legion run will be coming in trade soon. And maybe, if we're good DC will release some of the amazing Jeff Moy penciled post-Zero Hour LOSH? Please?
Anyway, I feel like I should celebrate.
Look for some more D20 Modern superhero stuff soon, including an idea I just had for Galaxy Command.
