Welcome superstar Gary Frank as he kicks off his run as the new monthly artist on ACTION COMICS with the extra-length first chapter of “Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes”! Spinning from “The Lightning Saga,” the original Legion of Super-Heroes returns! When he was a boy, Clark Kent was isolated and alone until he met this teen team from the 31st Century. Today, it’s been years since Superman saw his childhood friends. Why haven’t they returned to visit him? What’s become of the symbol of Superman in the future? And just why is the future so dangerous for Superman? They warned him away, but now he’s determined to help his friends — even if it means his life!
"Man, it’s a great big Legion story that follows up the impenetrable JLA/JSA crossover… and it MAKES SENSE! It’s like Christmas in October! Gary Frank joins Geoff Johns with this arc and he’s, to my mind, the missing piece this book needed. The detail is great, the redesigns of the Legion are great, the little ‘dopey Clark Kent’ touches are great, the whole thing is just GREAT. The one problem for me, is which Legion is this exactly? It’s nice to see the return of the classic, but how many Legions does DC need at one time?"
