    One thought on “Legion Lost, Vol. 2: The Culling”

    1. This volume was going oh-so-well right up until the final three issues.Clearly they were writing this aware that they needed to tie-up lose ends in order to finish off the series. And it looked like they were going to be able to do just that once the Culling ended and the team could focus on getting back home and solving Alastor dilemma again Then they introduced a new (unbelievably lame. like, SO unbelievably lame!) villain riding a talking dragon and everything fell to pieces. It fell apart so [...]

    2. Surprisingly, I liked DeFalco's work here better than in the original volume. He has a strong handle on writing about a large cast of character, and he manages to constantly embed that characterization in the (frequent, long) action sequences, keeping them lively. He also does a lot to introduce mystery into the book.My only qualm is that it's more inconclusive than I'd like, as it doesn't close out the Harvest thread, it leaves open Tyroc's fate, and it left Gates' time-travel thing muddy. Oh, [...]

    3. Disappointing end to this series. The subplots from the first book are rushed to completion here, and most of it doesn't make sense. Everyone has a secret. Yawn.Additionally, being part of the Culling crossover with the Teen Titans and the Ravagers is pretty lame, and just adds to the overall *meh* of this story. I really loved the characterization of Timber Wolf and the rest, though, and they did seem like the Legionnaires we've always known (except for Tyroc, who has always been a bit of a bla [...]

    4. This 2nd and final volume of Legion Lost contains issues #8-16 & #0. The first couple of issues are part of "The Culling" crossover event between Legion Lost, Superboy, and The Teen Titans. All of these heroes are captured by a villain named Harvest and are made to fight one another with the intention that the survivors will be new additions to Harvest's personal army that he calls Ravagers. Add Caitlan Fairchild, who was once part of Gen 13 in the Wildstorm Universe prior to New 52, and a n [...]

    5. What the !?! After issue 8 the story continues elsewhere, but it does not say where to look.(I´m guessing "Teen Titans, vol 2") What the !?! After issue 9 the story starts and continues elsewhere, but it does not say where to look. To make things worse: This issue starts in the middle of a battle and ends before the battle is over.(Still guessing "Teen Titans, vol 2") Issue 10 and we are back on track!.but everyone really do talk a lot while fighting right?d they are fighting a space-super-barb [...]

    6. I'm not a huge fan of the Legion in any of its forms, but I have to say I enjoyed this volume, and it made me appreciate some of the characters a bit more. The story bounces around a lot, with a couple of minor villains making for 1-2 issue stretches, and the zero issue focusing on Timber Wolf is underwhelming, but it all wraps up with a fairly intense battle with multiple factors and groups coming into play, actually making it feel like it was a high stakes situation. And there was a little mor [...]

    7. Kind of fun. I read it because of the crossover with Teen Titans, which I've also been reading.The writing has some oddities in this volume. Tellus suddenly talks like Yoda, which he didn't before, I'm pretty sure. Many of the characters respond to orders with the same modern (and not terribly mature-sounding) construction: "Like I would stay behind!" or, "Like there's any chance of that!" or, "Like I would ever let you go alone!", etc.Also, the word "implode" is used to mean "explode" twice. In [...]

    8. The Legion get taken by Harvest to fight. After that an escapee from the future threatens the world. Oh, and there's another big bad too. This is an action packed volume, with only some character bits in it. I suspect some of it was written so you would have to start reading Teen Titans and Superboy. A good read.

    9. I'd like to give it more stars for the good work of Misters DeFalco and Woods and the Legion. The ending just doesn't grab me, (maybe it doesn't make sense without reading the crossovers?) and I hadn't made the time to read the rest yet. Still, the Timber Wolf origin story stands alone quite nicely and it was a heck of an effort.

    10. Better than the first volume.Repeats the end of the Culling.Harvest is back and I think I know who he is!Don't know about the barbarian from space on a talking dragon though.

    11. El naufragio narrativo que significó la saga The Culling (uno de los mayores desaciertos de los New 52) termina de hundir una colección que daba para más.
