A Most Modest Flower: Day 20

February 20th, 2016


(from “Revenge Is a Dish Best Served Cold” by Paul Levitz, Keith Giffen and Karl Kesel in Tales of The Legion of Super-Heroes Annual #4, 1986)

“Grife, how does Superboy handle this on a daily basis?”

Though the premise has been rendered nonsensical by the Millennium event and a dozen reboots, this remains one of my favorite LSH stories of all time. Levitz and Giffen were in top form, with a solid quartet of guest inkers (including Ernie Colon experimenting with some trippy techniques) and a nice long-form murder mystery plot that tied back to a pretty surprising bit of then current continuity.

Violet’s chapter was especially good, being a POV “shot” Chandlerian riff complete with hard-boiled narration from the Littlest Legionnaire.
