*DC: We continue our Legion of Super-Heroes feature with a run of Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes from #197 to #258, almost every issue in that sequence. In an echo of what happened in Adventure Comics many years earlier, the Legion took over Superboy’s title with #197 and the title remained thus until #258, changing with #259 to just ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes’ (but that’s a story for another update…). This period started well with art by Dave Cockrum, who designed snazzy new outfits for many Legionnaires. But Cockrum soon departed to draw a certain mutant combo at the competition, and his replacement, Mike Grell, made those new costumes look a bit ridiculous on his angular and elongated figures (not to my taste, sorry). A brighter time followed with the accomplished art of the criminally underused James Sherman, which coincided fortuitously with the first writing period by Paul Levitz, particularly the Earthwar saga, which presaged the superb period which was to follow when Levitz returned to the title. Many other creators had a hand at this time, such as Jim Starlin, Mike Nasser and Joe Staton, but at best a patchy time for our favourite group. As always, see our catalogue for the full listing.
