    I get the feeling it's a plot point.

    Creating their own habitat, alphabet, customs and lifestyle. Mutants distancing themselves from "humanity", more specifically "humans"..

    I'll have a think about it, but I don't think it's possible as all four existing Legions are just too disparate. The last version and the original version are the closest and the easiest....They both...

    The Fantagraphic collection of the Segar strips are fantastic. Also the best run I've ever read out of any of them.

    For me back issues either came from second hand book stores or swapping.

    Enjoying the heck out of House & Powers....I'll be picking up X-Men & New Mutants, my first X-Books in 20 years. Last time I read regularly was around the Magneto War storyline.

    Haven't read it in a while, but, from what I remember, they recap the mini-series in issue #4 or thereabouts in a segment that fills in the back-story.

    Been reading since the early 70's and I don't feel much has changed. More hype about events but that's about it. The main difference is in the choice of genres you would read. Back then you wouldn't...

    I disagree, I did a quick analysis 3 months in, and without the Star Wars issues existing at that point, (About 10), The Marvel Universe sales were very close to DC's. My feeling is that the MU...

    But you can't do that anymore because fandom is too fractured in what they want. Everyone seems to...

    And can't just publish a Harry Potter comic whenever they feel like it. They have to have J.K. Rowling's approval. They can't add to the canon.
