Keep it to one or two writers, to keep it from getting too convoluted.
    Yeah, remember Trinity where L.E.G.I.O.N., Darkstars, and Green Lantern all crossed over with each other?

    I picked up the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern book in the $5 sale late last year. REBELS issue one was by Pyer and it was Terrible as well. Talk about getting Vril Dox completely wrong, wow. Stealth felt completely wrong as well.

    I have never read the run by Bedard but I did read the first issue and it felt like the run would be more decompressed written for trade story telling I dislike.

    I'd recommend the first 50 to anyone.
    I have only read issue 50 and the arc following that landmark, and I have to say that the brief issues that I had encountered that were post issue 50 were quite good.

    Loved this crossover! I just found all 8 parts in the bargain bin not too long ago... picked them up just because.

    I may be wrong but I think this was the last storyline that Barry Kitson drew on the book. I know he didn't draw every issue - and even took a 7 or 8 issue break during it's run. But his artwork was so identifiable with this book. So glad he stayed with it as long as he did.

    I think you're right.

    After Trinity (or shortly after) the guy who would eventually draw R.E.B.E.L.S. took over and closed out the series. I wanna say Aucoin or Jorgensen...? Or maybe both.

    According to the cover of the final issue of L.E.G.I.O.N., it was both. Glad Kitson at least did the covers up until the end.

    If I recall correctly, Jorgensen closed up the L.E.G.I.O.N. series and launched R.E.B.E.L.S. (and I have to say I was not a fan), and then, shortly after, Aucion took over the book and stuck with it until the end (and I have to say, though not Kitson's level, his art was much more to my liking).

    Peace

    Unfortunately, DC hasn't digitized the first 47 issues of the GL run that ties into it, yet. Wouldn't mind checking it out.
    Think I stopped reading Legion '89 after a few issues. Not because I didn't like it, but because I was focusing more on JLA and JLE at the time.

    Ah ha! Close enough.

    I haven't re-read those late issues in years, but I don't recall hating them...? In fact, I know I was really looking forward to R.E.B.E.L.S., so they must not have been that bad.

    It's been awhile for me too. I just remember Dox and Stealth's kid taking over LEGION and the old gang went on the run in REBELS.

    I have a special name for LEGION '89 issues #1-12 - I call them 'Comic Book Writing 101'. Giffen took 12 issues to lay down a perfect foundation of stories and relationships that would last at least through issue #50.

    While I didn't always agree with the direction Alan Grant took it (especially one critical death of a favorite character), he was a great writer until he stepped down for health reasons. But Kitson did a good job with writing the book from that point on. I admit I wasn't a big fan of REBELS the first go-around.
