Paul's FB response:

"Bleeding Cool notes that DC has scheduled an omnibus covering most of my first run on the LEGION for next June. I've long considered that period a very mixed mark on my scorecard: so proud to have gotten to write my favorite characters, and some moments of cool collaboration (Simonson, Starlin, Sherman, Staton, Nasser) but lots of fill-in interruptions or writing assists by others because I overcommitted myself). Contrary to BC's report, I don't recall ever specifically vetoing a reprinting, Just do cut me a little slack when reading--I was 20 when I began that run. Thanks for the plug, Rich."

The Mainframe
Currently, while https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1401272916/ does say "Superboy and Legion of Superheroes #234-245 (1977-1978)", it lists "by Cary Bates (Author), Mike Grell (Illustrator)"

For note, since this will change, it currently also says:

Saw this today in my "Amazon" feed:

New LSH reprint book

Ironically, they show the cover of S&LSH# 231, yet the description as of today says it reprints #234-245.

I hope the latter is a typo. #231-245 makes more sense as it covers the "giant-size" era to the end of earthwar.

It's probably 234 because the Archives left off with 233. I hope the wedding tabloid ends up being included as well.

I'm just SO happy that I'll FINALLY get to read Earth War! It was beyond frustrating that the Archives were discontinued right BEFORE they got to them, so I'm glad DC has found a way to pick up where they left off!!!

I've never read Earthwar, so I'm decently hyped for this. Though tbh, with all the good trades DC are putting out (Waid Flash, Rucka Wonder Woman, Dixon Nightwing, Silver Age Doom Patrol omnibus, etc) I don't even know if I'll have time for it xD


There's a fine line between not listening and not caring. I like to think that I walk that line every day of my life.

I hope you guys get to read it soon and review it here! We just reviewed it not that long ago in the Reread threads, and it was a ton of fun--still a highlight in LSH history!

Earthwar is still my favorite Legion saga, even over GDS. It showed the true leap forward of Paul's writing and scripting. He was weaving lots of different points into a cohesive one and it was fantastic.

He only grew from there, but that, to me, was the beginning. Between it and his JSA stuff back then, I was in comic heaven.


Damn you, you kids! Get off my lawn or I'm callin' tha cops!

Something pithy!

I read it all out of sequence, and I missed it when it came round in the re read thread. But that's a good place to put some thoughts when I get round to going through it.

Man, I hope that's not right because with those contents, it wouldn't include Earth War!

From Paul's Facebook:

"Just in, copies of SUPERBOY & THE LEGION Volume 1, a continuation of the Legion's chronological reprints from the Archives series. This volume includes the elusive, never-before reprinted tabloid edition, and issues illustrated by Simonson, Starlin, Grell, Sherman, Nasser and Chaykin...quite a line up.

It's a period when I overcommitted myself as a writer, so there are stories dialogued by others, and a full fill-in by Gerry Conway, but I guess you can watch me learn on the job, and see the build-up to "Earthwar," the first long Legion saga which will headline Volume 2.

Also included is the original pitch for the Legion tabloid from my files, and a couple of my typed notebook pages of notes on Legion characters from the old days.

Copies in stores shortly!"
