really liked it

Sequart's collection of some 18 essays (20 if you count preface and epilogue) on the Legion of Super-Heroes. These range from studies of specific elements (fashion, utopian architecture, homosexuality) to literary criticism of the books' various eras, sometimes exposing some very interesting, and even surprising themes. One thing that does come through in the book taken as a whole is how the Legion was so often in the avant-garde of superhero comics, doing first what we would take for granted later. A very interesting read which, while it could have withstood a little more proofreading in some essays, is nonetheless very well organized by editor Tim Callahan, disparate articles somehow fitting the Legion's actual publication history.
