Legion ala George Perez

This wallpaper features the roster of the Legion of Super-Heroes at the time of publication. I didn't scan the pages or group the figures. I did, however, add a background and the mission monitor symbols for all the pictured Legionnaires.

I might even attempt to find that digest and scan it myself to see if I can make the images clearer... I tried to sharpen it, but need better scans to start with. Hmmmmmmmmmm...

This was right near the beginning of George's career... Probably around '82 or '83. It was also one of his earlier Legion related pics. He had done some covers for the Legion, but that was about all at that point. New Teen Titans and Justice League of America were keeping him too busy for another project.

It's also interesting because of the costumes. Chameleon Boy, Element Lad, Saturn Girl and Shrinking Violet are in their Cockrum-era duds, Shadow Lass is in a variation of a Giffen redesign, while Cosmic Boy has covered the Grell up in his Giffen redo. A snapshot in time.

And this month we get to see George try his hand with the current Legion in Brave and the Bold!

Too. Cool.
