  1. And of course, he’s also tracking down who killed Ryan Choi, right? Right?

    (Why do I feel like I’m having a Princess Buttercup moment?)

  2. If Saturn Girl is exercising so hard, why isn’t she sweating? I can’t understand why artists keep drawing pristine females instead of realistic pictures.

    It’s like that great picture a ways back with Batgirl in the rain. Everything was awesome except she was in the pouring rain but looked perfectly dry, with her hair blowing and everything.

    I can’t even draw well and only had high school art but even I can notice the oversight. What gives?

  3. I was struck by the contrast between her very modern work-out clothes and Garth and Rokk’s very old-school costumes. Her sports bra and bike shorts made me think I was reading about the current (adult) legion….

    • Agreed, maybe she should have been wearing leggings, ankle warmers, a sports bra with a sweatshirt that the neck and sleeves have been cut off on. That could have worked, oh and a headband too.

      I’ve probably never read a single issue of Legion anything, but this looks interesting to me. I like younger group stories and the dynamic looks pretty interesting. Matthew is always saying that because the Legion has like 85 active members the stories have to be deeply rooted in their personal interactions and character moments, if that’s the way this series is written, I think I’d like to pick it up and read more.
