    Bear in mind DC sells books, not luxury wares. Artistic intent is, however faintly, in their DNA. Some books look good on glossy paper, others thrive on newsprint.

    I read volume 1 and thought it was pretty bad. Johns covering Morrison's JLA with none of the ideas or imagination. I don't have a very high opinion of the man, but this is definitely among his worst...

    The last couple of book preorders I've had with Amazon.com have been very late to ship, despite being available for purchase and listed as "In stock". Am I the only one ?

    Technically, volume 1 includes the first two letter columns. However, there are no actual letters, just short pieces by Robinson.

    To be honest, I wasn't reading Revelations for its Final Crisis connections (thin as they are !), but as a chapter in Rucka's Montoya story. A very disappointing one at that!

    I'd say the defining moment for most recent Legion stories is the Levitz run, though the Levitz run itself makes use of past work, like Jim Shooter's. But it's always, or nearly always, presented in...

    It depends on what you mean by "necessary". Different writers have made very different use of Legion lore. I don't think, for instance, that the early Legion stuff collected in the Silver Age Omnibus...

    The silver age omnibus covers the Legion's very early years. It's full of silver age goofiness and a far cry from Geoff Johns' stuff. Art is uneven (good when Curt Swan's on pencils, pretty bad when...
