And since I've finished my finals, I'm actually able to read for fun again (for a little while, anyway). I've currently been speeding through Legion of Superheroes Archives Vol. 1 (which my wife bought me for our wedding anniversary because she's the most amazing woman ever), which I will hopefully talk about at length when I'm finished, but here are a few early observations:
- I love Silver Age DC stories, though my affection in no way reflects their quality. They're great fun, but also among the most terrible fiction ever written. Great ideas, TERRIBLE dialogue.
- The invention of hardcore comic book continuity was a fantastic thing, and well needed in the Legion's case, as major background details vary between each story.
- I actually think I'm starting to understand Legion fandom now. That can't be healthy.
- Like Mike Sterling, I have to say that I am profoundly pro-Super Pet, and I vote.
