Heads-Up:

I've been having such a great time with the in-progress re-read of "Secrets of the LSH" that I've decided to expand on my original plan of stopping by once again at the end of Volume 17 to chime in one Wildfire's secret origin in LSH #283.

I'll actually be sticking around for the majority of Volume 18 -- LSH #284-294, to be specific. In other words, I will participate all the way through the end of the Great Darkness Saga.

And then, I'll definitely still be climbing back aboard the Legion Re-Read train with LSH Baxter #1-35. It's also quite likely that I'll chime in on concurrent the Tales of the LSH issues as well, and most definitely on the 2-parter which introduces Lady Memory, whom, in the process of writing her as a recurring villainess anti-heroine in my Retroboot fics for Bits, I have come to regard as Paul Levitz's greatest original creation.

I see I mixed up the order we decided on for Archive 17, should have done the Supergirl story (Superman Family #207) for this week. So I propose we do that next week, if we can manage to survive the suspense of what happened to Jo Nah after he got blasted by the beautiful but fashion-challenged Captain Frake.

Hey, Re-Readers,

Fanfic Lady by any other name here.

Kudos to all of you, especially Cramey, for keeping the Re-Reads rolling along.

A reminder: I'll be joining the Re-Reads from issues 283 (my boy Wildfire's Secret Origin) through 294 (the climax of the Great Darkness Saga.)

Which begins only a couple weeks from now! Squee!

Is it that time again? Looks like Archive 17 is about wrapped. I have the next covers ready but wanted to clarify what we plan on reviewing for this Great and Dark volume known as Archive 18. wink

Sorry not to respond earlier Future. Been swamped in RL.

This is a proposal for Archive 18, open for comment/suggestion:

DC Comics Presents #43
Worlds Finest #284
LSH #284-289
(?) Annual #1

(There's a Best of DC #24 which reprints the Colossal Boy/Tarik the Mute story and a couple other Adventure era stories, with a few new framing pages thrown in. Personally, I'm inclined to skip this, but would like others' opinions.)

The break point is in question, after #289 comes the Annual in which Jacques Foccart is introduced (the Danielle/Computo story). After that, the Great Darkness Saga begins. So I'm inclined to include the Annual in this Archive 18 and have 19 begin with GDS. However, it could be the story to kick off the next Archive, since the GDS story begins with new member Jacques meeting Superboy at Legion HQ.

Thoughts?

Firstly...OOH, I actually do have a copy of DC Comics Presents #43! How could I not, with that beautiful cover by Brian Bolland which foregrounds my girl Tasmia?

Secondly, I think Archive 18 should go past LSH Annual #1, and all the way up to LSH #294, the climax of the GDS story-arc. Otherwise, it would feel a bit short to me.

Those are my 2 cents.

I concur with Fanfie's idea to conclude with the GDS. It would be a short volume otherwise.

I think that will help pace us toward Archive 20 including the start of the Baxter series, which is nice symmetry having a changeover with a milestone number. Granted, it will probably close the volume due to all the major guest appearances to cover before that.

Just made an ebay transaction to complete my archives set (Shout out to Fat Cramer, who got us #5). Got #12, with an added bonus of a Mike Grell Signature. Also picked up the "Superboy and the..." Hardcover. Both are going away for my daughter this Christmas.

I had to change the image links to my Archive covers as their original host no longer allows third party linking. Feel free to give me a head's up if they aren't showing up or if something happens to them.

Looking ahead, I thought it would be good symmetry to have the Baxter series start off a new archive much like the Superboy issues in the 70s did. Weighing the chronology, I'm not sure that will work perfectly. We have the following left to review after Archive 18 I believe:

LSH (v2) 295-313
LSH (v2) Annual 2
Brave & Bold 198
DC Comics Presents 59
New Adventures of Superboy 50

23 issues. Splitting them in half would make two pretty light archives. Keeping them together would be too much.

Do we want to take a page from the Great Darkness Saga hardcover and throw a few more issues of LSH into Archive 18? #295-297 let's say, ending with Cos dealing with his mother's murder. We could then toss LSH #312-313 into the Baxter Archive as a lead-in, which would leave 18 issues for Archive 19 to otherwise wrap v2. It's a lot of logistics ... anyone have any thoughts or alternate ideas?

There were some new stories in the Tales of the Legion as it caught up with the Baxter run. Those would have been after 313.

Those would be interspersed with the Baxter issues, though, since Legion treated them as two series running alongside each other, unlike Titans and Outsiders which made the newsprint run flashbacks before the Baxter series.

Ah, yes it would. Remember kids. Don't run into your posts. Take a moment to think it through smile I read "Baxter" and "313" and felt the need to cry out over some of my favs.

How about we keep Volume 18 going up to #300, then Volume 19 could cover #301-313, plus Annual 2 (I admit I've forgotten where it fits in chronologically, because I don't own a floppy-copy), and the 3 books with Legion guest appearances?

As BFOB helpfully pointed out, coordinating the 2 dozen intertwined issues (Baxter 1-12 and ToLSH #314-325) is going to be tricky. Maybe we should let that simmer for a few weeks, then get back to it?

Annual 2 is the wedding of Jeckie & Val, so it logically follows #303.

These archives are fictional, so they could be as long or short as convenient. Not a problem for me to keep going to #300 with this current archive.

I do think the intertwined Baxter-Tales issues should be done together. Would we alternate from week to week? I don't recall offhand if the stories are discreet to each book or if Tales references something going on in Baxter, etc. Look-Up Lad, help! My signal ring isn't working!

Hey guys, just wanted to check in. Life has gotten very complicated and attention-demanding lately. Nothing horrible or Earth-shattering, though the 'owning your own business' stress can be pretty overwhelming and sometimes I feel I have so much on my plate that I can't tell which way is up or down. I hope to get back eventually. In the meantime, I'm thrilled you guys are keeping this going.

And just to chime in: love the idea of V.18 going to 300. And love the idea of intertwining the Baxter and ToLSH issues.

Having re-read them a while ago, it's not too tricky as Tales ran fairly independently and only tangentially referenced the Baxter series (in a non-spoilery way for those of us who didn't have comic shops and needed to wait for the reprints). You can literally just alternate and it reads fine, and stretches out the LSV War a little.

I hear you, Cobie. When I was 3, my Dad owned a bakery. By the time I was 4, he'd gone back to being a teacher. Kudos to you for sticking it out like this, and all the very best wishes.

And, of course, as more than one of us have said, it's never too late to chime in. smile
