Book Description

28 Aug 2014 The Horus Heresy
A Great War is coming, and it will engulf the Imperium of Man. The Space Marines of the Alpha Legion, the last and most secretive of all the Astartes brotherhoods, arrive on a heathen world to support the Imperial Army in a pacification campaign against strange and uncanny forces. But what drives the Alpha Legion? Can they be trusted, and what side will they choose when the Heresy begins? Loyalties are put to the test, the cunning schemes of an alien intelligence are revealed, and the fate of mankind hangs in the balance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read 28 Feb 2013
By IainY
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as it was the 7th title in the Horus Hersey series. Really good read. Gives a good insight into the Alpha Legion as well. I recommend you pick this up if you love Warhammer 40k.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good addition to the series 2 Sep 2013
By Joe
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good book on the war hammer universe, the story left more question than wanders and therefore dragged me in. Damm you! I can't spend all my life reading, not quite as engrossing as others in the Horus heresy series, but a decent addition

5.0 out of 5 stars another trade for the second incarnation of the Legion! 29 Mar 2006
By bOoKwOrM - Published on Amazon.com
Even thought the post-Zero Hour(a.k.a 'rebooted') Legion lasted from 1994-2004, this is only the second trade to collect material from their run.
Contains issues #25-30 of the series "The Legion" and also material from the 'Legion Secret Files 2003'. Written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, this story has the Legion team-up with Superboy(a.k.a Conner Kent).

2.0 out of 5 stars Rebooted Legion Sputters in Epic Mess with Too Many Artists 26 Aug 2011
By Kevin M. Derby - Published on Amazon.com
This trade paperback contains some of the last comics of the rebooted version of the Legion of Superheroes who DC had on stage from 1994-2004. It may tell you something about the comics industry and the publisher that since then there was new reboot (the "threebooted" Legion), before a new version which was tied to the original one--and now DC is rebooting the entire thing. It's pretty confusing for new readers so be warned.

Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning offer this collection of comics--and, perhaps sensing the confusion, they spend a large amount of time on exposition. Characters give speeches about the founding of the Legion. A journalist introduces everyone on the team and gives us a rundown of who they are. Saturn Girl goes over the entire "Legion Lost" plot in answer to a question. The authors try to flesh out an epic plot involving Darksid, the destruction of all human history and various themes involving two versions of Superboy--but these seem convoluted, rushed and frankly not very interesting. Other threads--Kid Quantum loses control of her powers and Lightening Lad/Livewire is back (sort of)--do little to advance the story. Abnett and Lanning simply are not as good as other Legion writers--namely Paul Levitz--in running the ensemble cast and their attempts to do so often fall flat.

The main problem with the book is the inconsistency of the art. This book features 7 pencilers and 9 inkers. Add the colorers to the mix....and you have a larger team than a major league baseball roster for most of the season. It's absurd. There are sudden, often conflicting, changes in the span of pages. This distracts and annoys--and makes what had been a mediocre collection of comics a below average one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Graphic SF Reader 3 Sep 2007
By Blue Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
To try and confuse people more, this version of the Legion of Super Heroes, entitled The Legion, decided to add Superboy to their roster. This is yet another different Superboy, and a rather reckless young lad, diving headfirst into attempting to solve some of the problems he encounters in the 30th century.

A strange thing to do, this.
