Legion 101 Sale This Weekend

From DC Blog:

Take a trip to the future with the DC Digital Comics Legion 101 Sale!

Inspired by the legend of Superman, teenagers from across the universe journeyed to Earth to form a super-team unlike any other in history. Representing diversity, unity and tolerance, they protect all planets and races of the far future as the LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES!

Since that initial appearance in the pages of ADVENTURE COMICS, the Legion has been re-imagined by some of the most talented creators in the industry and maintained a constant presence as an integral part of the DC Universe. The team has also been spotlighted in various media outside of the comic book world, including their own animated series, THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES IN THE 31ST CENTURY, to appearances in JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED and the popular CW television show SMALLVILLE.

With the Legion 101 Sale, featuring a list of comics compiled by Paul Levitz, you can read some of the most unforgettable adventures of the Legion with 101 comics ranging from their first appearance in ADVENTURE COMICS #247 to Levitz and Keith Giffen’s classic epic “The Great Darkness Saga” all the way to Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning’s LEGION LOST—all for only .99 cents per issue!

Grab these issues while you can because this sale only lasts 3 days and begins 3/24/12.

The future is now! Download your favorite LEGION issues today.

Skitch Commentary: I am a huge Legion fan, but this could not have come at a worse time. I lost my tablet this week, so I need to cut back on my comics in order to save for it. I will probably still pick up a few books (I already own it digitally, but Legion Lost is a must buy). I hate that DC and Comixology have stopped saying in advance what these sales will actually include.

I am also glad that Legion will finally be getting some solid representation on Comixology. That is a book that has been severely lacking!

– Not sure why they didn’t post all five issues of Legion of Three Worlds…

– I do think that this is ridiculous Levitz heavy. No Five Year Gap. Neither of Mark Waid’s reboots. And how do you have Widening Rifts and Legion Lost (only five issues) without Legion Worlds and Legion of the Damned?

– All in all, a decent variety, but this is one of the least impressive 101 sales they have done. Even as a Legion fan, there isn’t too much here that I “must have.”  They didn’t even include a “101” comic like they usually do which highlights major appearances and backstory for the characters being spotlighted.
