Phoenix

For Sheryl

Keith Giffen on Waid's LSH:

Look at Mark Waid's new Legion. I love it. I read that first issue, and I love it. I think it's the best incarnation of the Legion we've seen in a long, long time, and it's a Legion book that I can read. I can read it, I can enjoy it, and I don't know what's coming next.

No matter who takes over, you know the characters, you can pretty much guess what's going to happen. You're kind of one step ahead sometimes. 'Oh here come the Khunds again.' 'Oh, it's Universo' But with this new book, I can read it as a fan. So is it the way I would do the Legion? Absolutely not, but that doesn't mean it is any less valid.
