And Then I Read: LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES 12

Writer Paul Levitz has wrapped up the Dominator storyline in this issue, which begins with some of the Legion on the Dominator homeworld, bound and about to be eaten. Other Legionnaires are on the way to rescue them after settling with the bureaucrats that wanted to stop them, and an escape by Dream Girl begins to turn the tables, but everyone’s greatest effort is needed.

The main artist on this issue is Francis Portela, with a few pages by Tom Derenick. Both do fine, but Portela still has trouble with his figures. Some of them tend to look more like mannequins than real people, with Otaki above as an example. Those three-quarter views seem to get the best of him. Derenick’s pages, by contrast, have figures that seem more natural and real. The cover by Steve Lightle is great, as always.
