The Legion of Super-Bloggers welcomes the chance to talk about the Legion at any place, at any time! So when the Fire and Wire Podcast Network called and asked us to talk about one of the two Legion Treasuries, we jumped at the chance!

Rob and Russell talk about the whole book, starting with the fantastic cover by Mike Grell of ALL of the then-current Legionnaires!!

The majority of the book is, of course, a reprint of the Legion's first recorded battle against Mordru the Merciless (it's right there in the name) from Adventure Comics #s 369-370. There is also a two-page spread of the wedding of Duo Damsel and Bouncing Boy, and several pages profiling the headquarters of the Legion.

According to our sources, Curt Swan inked his own work on this FANTASTIC splash page
The infamous two-page spread from Superboy/Legion #200 by Dave Cockrum.
