Now THIS is a teaser!
LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #6
Written by Paul Levitz, art and cover by Yildiray Cinar and Wayne Faucher, variant cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams.
The first storyline ends here after issue #5's shocking last page! Legion leader Cosmic Boy makes a drastic decision, that will affect the next year's worth of Legion stories. And the quest to build up the 31st century Green Lantern Corps continues!
40 pages, $3.99, in stores on Oct. 20.
Okay... This is how a cover should be done... Not theatrical poses every issue as if it's the first issue. This cover actually sets up the story. People who are reading LEGION no doubt already have a multitude of questions and speculations about what it means.
What we DO know... Earth Man does the nasty with a fellow Legionnaire.
The gender is kept pretty vague so it could be ANYBODY except Gates, Tellus or Blok...
Current leader in the speculation department is Shadow Lass.
Regardless of who it is... it's a Legionnaire. And it quite possibly is someone not of Earth...
Another thing is there is no Green Lantern ring on the bedside. I wonder if it was left out on purpose because Earth Man no longer has it by #6 or that it would have lessened the impact of the two Legionnaire rings sitting by the bed.
My guess is that he may have bedded someone in particular to cause a split in the group.
Guess we will see in a few short months...
Plus, I'm loving Cinar's art. Top notch!
And the best thing about the solicit? "that will affect the next year's worth of Legion stories". Woohoo... Not getting cancelled anytime soon!
