Who’s Who in the Legion of Super-Heroes

    (DC, 1988)
™ and © DC Comics

This seven-part directory—edited by Mark Waid (JLA, Captain America)—consists of encyclopedia-style entries on all the characters—major and very minor—from DC’s long-running Legion of Super-Heroes mythos. Included are Superboy, Dawnstar, Wildfire, Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Cosmic Boy, and even lesser lights like Dev-Em and Absorbency Boy. Informative, if somewhat tedious. The artwork is provided by a virtual Who’s Who of comics industry talents: Curt Swan (Superman), Keith Giffen (The Defenders), Pat Broderick (Captain Atom), Jim Valentino (A Touch of Silver), and Colleen Doran (A Distant Soil), among many others. A must-have series for any Legion fan.
