If you were confused by Legion of Super-Heroes#1, Legion Lost #1 will leave you even more so. Like its sister publication Legion of Super-Heroes, Legion Lost suffers from the same treatment. There is very little context for new readers and with so many characters to keep track of, you will have to read it at least twice to make sense of the action. It seems as if the title will become more intense-being stranded in the past should provide plenty of intriguing plot lines. The artwork is fair but a little under developed sketch wise and the cluttered panels will leave you disorientated. Legion Lost is disappointing but the strength of the premise should merit better offerings in the next releases.
