Superboy And The Legion Of Superheroes - Jim Shooter, DC Comics Inc One of the better Tempo reprint books, this volume reprints some interesting artwork (and some definitely not-so-interesting stories). Bob Brown inked by Wally Wood, Dave Cockrum inked by Murphy Anderson, Curt Swan and Mike Sekowsky are all featured in this Legion-heavy book. The stories are pretty inane though, especially the opening one in which the tried-and-true sixties/seventies plot device of something radically altering the origin of Superman is used (this time, his parents were in suspended animation, but turned into kryptonite and even Pa Kent has to don a spacesuit to help out). This is one of those books you read just to look at the artwork, which even in this truncated form is outstanding, and looks great in black-and-beige.
