Sorry to not see you post on the rereads. I'd just got back too... Hey, wait a minute...

I'm hoping you'll still add comments/ thoughts as we go. Please do for Reflecto too, just to check that we're still alive if nothing else.

Awwww, thanks, Thoth. smile

Can't wait for Reflecto. That should be a good laugh. nod

Wouldn't it be hilarious if someone tried (as either a piss-take or something genuinely pretentious) to mash up the Legion with Alan Moore's never-completed math-tastic mess-terpiece "Big Numbers"?

lol

In a spooky coincidink I was thinking about Big Numbers earlier on today >gasp!<

Probably off the back of your excellent Bissette thread. I was trying, and failing, to remember the plot. All I could recall was the art and that it was off sized, so it was a pain to find a baggie for it.

Thoth, thank you kindly for the nice words about my Bissette thread. That type of feedback is what makes it worth all the effort. smile

Re: Big Numbers' plot, it actually tackled some worthwhile subject matter: globalization, right-wing politicians out to destroy the common people, the ongoing Americanization of England (and many other places around the world) and its subsequent destruction of (a) unique culture(s.) The problem is, between Moore's ego newly inflated by all the money he'd made from DC, Sienkiwicz going nutty (whether it was hard drug use, or whether Bill was already bonkers without drugs, we'll probably never know for sure), Bill's replacement also going looney-tunes and destroying his own art (very Daffy Duck of him), Big Numbers never stood a chance of cohering, even if it hadn't imploded under all that baggage.

Thanks for the plot. That would have been Al Columbia destroying the art. Jeez, I remember reading about that.

A post DC Moore, tackling interesting subject matter without a bit of spandex in sight. I remember looking forward to it, getting the first issue, almost missing the second and then....nothing... it must have been on my little index card reminder list for ages. smile

Also on my little index card was, of course, the Legion... segueing nicely back into this thread smile

Yes, we wouldn't want to incur the wrath of Teeds, now. lol

Speaking of Teeds, we haven't had any kind of Legion-related post from her for a while, unless I'm forgetting something...

Who needs the Legion when you're getting cat comic covers? smile

There was also a cat in the Legion of Superpets, who we all got to reread earlier in the archives.*

We're getting to the end of Archives #15. Originally, we were supposed to end it with #260, but this would split up that infamous story.

So should we end #15 with Space Circus Part 2 (#261) or start Archive #16 next week with #260?

For ending Archive #16, what's a good stopping point? Dr. Mayavale (#268) or #271 (the Dark Man)? There's also the one-shot Holiday Special, which unfortunately, we wouldn't get to before Xmas unless we rearrange the order.

Thoughts? Preferences?

FC, where does the Holiday one-shot fall chronologically? For some reason, I thought it took place right around here.

I say let's do #260-261 at the start of the next Archive. (And either end Archive 15 here or with the Holiday special).

For the next Archive bookend, I think 272, where Blok joins the LSH (as follow up to the Dark Man story of sorts) could be a stopping point. But as usual, I'm flexible!

Thinking of the Holiday Special some more...there's no reason we can't read it Christmas week!

The Special had a sale date of December 6, 1979 although its cover date was April 1980. I agree it would be a good one for Christmas week, so we'll slot it in there.

Archive 16 then would be from #260-#272, with the Special reviewed on December 20th.

Hi all! I can't believe how fast we've gotten through Archive 16. Looks like only a few weeks to go.

Where does everyone think a good end point would be for our next fictional archive, Archive 17? When Paul Levitz returns as a solo writer in SLSH #284? Should we include the Secrets of the Legion mini, which takes place after Blok joins per the text pages?

You know, I was thinking of the same thing yesterday! I think that yes, the next fictional Archive should end at the issue before Levitz takes over, and yes, it should include the Secrets of the LSH mini.

So it would then be:

- start with Secrets of LSH mini
- then LSH #273 - 279
- Brave & Bold #179
- LSH #280-283
- end with LSH #283

There is also a Legion team up with Supergirl in Superman Family #207 which I've never read that takes place around LSH #274 that we could include.

Oh, wonderful! I own copies of the Secrets mini (love those Dick Giordano covers) and of LSH 283, being as the latter is an elaboration of my boy Wildfire's back-story. So count me in for the bookend stories in Volume 17. smile

I like that set-up, Cobie! The Supergirl story is neat enough with a minimal role for the Legionnaires and their lore until the end. Definitely some things to talk about though as her first Legion-related appearance in awhile.

DC Comics Presents #43 is next chronologically after Archive 17 / SLSH #283. It's written by Paul Levitz too, so perhaps it can start Archive 18 when the Levitz return is tackled.

This should be great! I'm pretty sure I've never read the Secrets of the LSH mini, the B&B issue or the Supergirl story before.

So, the new reading order will be:

- start with Secrets of LSH mini
- then LSH #273
- then Superman Family #207 (the Supergirl story)
- then LSH #274-279
- then Brave & Bold #179
- then LSH #280-283
- end with LSH #283
