    I adore the recap pages personally. They're kind of a cleaner and more focused version of the fake twitter pages in Action Comics. They introduce us to a new Legionnaire each issue, and that Legionnaire recaps the general idea of last issue while also giving us a bit about them and the world. Translating the interlac is also pretty rewarding because it sometimes holds lore. Like, in issue 3 when we learn that Dawnstar and Lightning Lass are the two most popular Legionnaires among young people, and that Dawnstar seems to have some political footing. Both bits of info actually end up being contextualized in the following issue with us seeing Lightning Lass' origin (and her clear popularity) and Cosmic Boy's prime father (I'm assuming that means grandfather) grooming him for political office. Yeah, I really dig em. Looking forward to seeing Jon's.

    "I didn't sign on to be arrested by the science police" "We can do that on our home planet." I'm getting the sense that Triplicate Girl was a bit of a wild child...

    Yeah, that's a good idea Bendis brought with him from Marvel and other writers need to start doing the same. Most DC books don't have recap pages at all.

    That karate kid needs redesign desperately. Jon should say "for odin and for asgard! " next time. It would be even more funny.

    Agreed, and I didn't even consider the fact that most DC books didn't have them till you mentioned it. Really like the stylistic choice made there.
