KC’s latest Westfield column tackles two recent areas of discussion: whether Marvel knows what “first” means and the cancellation of the Legion of Super-Heroes comic. He provides a brief history of the Marvel graphic novel line and reflects on why the LSH concept may have some problems these days. (I helped with that part, because we love to talk Legion together. After all, that’s why we’re married.) There’s also a prediction of what DC’s comic line might look like in the future.
Fun trivia: the case numbers he uses are based around the company’s old New York street addresses. In case you were wondering.
If you’re curious to read another (much lengthier) take on the Legion and what it’s got right and wrong over the years, someone calling himself Astro has posted an essay analyzing series high points and strategies over the decades, with some recommendations for the future. If the series has one.
