This issue is rather fragmented, following a lot of storylines, but all pointing toward Saturn Queen, whom most of the Legion are unable to track down, as she keeps one step ahead of them in her somewhat mysterious quest through disparate realms of power. I’ve just noticed that the character tags are helpfully color coded now, black for the baddies and yellow for the Legion, which helps me keep the two groups straight. Among the baddies, Lightning Lord seems to be trying to follow his own agenda while still nominally obeying Saturn Queen, so we’re heading for a face-off there. Meanwhile, Brainiac 5 is draining power from Star Boy, something that seems likely to backfire eventually. I’m not sure where all this is going, but I’m enjoying the ride.
The art by Cinar and Glapion is quite good, especially in the action scenes this time. Cinar seems to have found his feet in LSH and is getting more creative with layouts and fighting poses.
