Reading this book was a labor of love. I have such a fondness in my heart for these early stories of the Legion. Sure, they're hokey and cheesy, but they're just a pure, innocent joy.
This massive book collects what I believe were the stories in the first three Legion Archives books. I have those books and now I have this, too, and it was so much fun re-reading them for the first time in years.
I did look at this with a different, maybe more critical eye. The issue to issue continuity is just plain weird to me. What I'm talking about is this. In one issue, we have a new member join. Let's say it's Lightning Lass. Then she doesn't appear again for a few issues. Same with Element Lad. You'd think that upon introduction, you'd get to see more of the new characters, but that's not how it worked back then. I don't know if a bunch of stories were commissioned and then published in a random order or what.
There really isn't a ton I can say about these stories that hasn't been said before. But these are highly enjoyable stories.
