Pilot Light

Sorry I haven't posted anything in so long, but it's just been so easy not to. I have the best of intentions about it, honest. And the freaking comic book was around for over fifty years; it's not like we've run out of stuff to talk about.

So what's new? LSH Showcase volume 5 coming out this winter. I won't be getting it as I already have that stuff in Archive form, but if there's ever a volume 6 I'll be all over that. Some kind of JLA/Legion appearance coming up in whatever this Forever Evil nonsense is later this summer.

Quite a while ago I recommended Abnett and Lanning's Hypernaturals as a comic you might like if you liked the Legion. It's over now but Image is publishing one called EGOs which is another futuristic-superhero-team book. It hasn't yet won me over the way Hypernaturals did but it doesn't seem bad either and I'm gonna stick with it for a while.

How are you?

I'm good, thanks for asking. I too found Hypernaturals to be a solid Legion replacement. Was quite sad that it was a maxi-series and not ongoing. That final page was pretty great.

I personally am digging the hell out of EGOs, but I can understand why its more clinical slant might not be for all Legion fans. But I dig it's brand of humor, and I like its cast.

I'll probably go back and reread the whole thing in a couple of issues or so; it might hit me better that way.
