Legends of the DC Universe

 LOTU   (DC, 1998-2001)

™ and ©1999 DC Comics

Featuring rotating creative teams (á la Legends of the Dark Knight) and superstar leads, Legends of the DC Universe brings to light untold tales of the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths and post-Zero Hour DC Comics continuity. Superman’s first battle with the U.L.T.R.A.-Humanite is chronicled in the series’ first three issues, while later issues feature the first meeting of Hal (Green Lantern) Jordan and Oliver (Green Arrow) Queen. There is also a Kirby-era Jimmy Olsen adventure, additional facts about the origin of the New Teen Titans, and tales set early in the careers of Barry Allen—the late, great Silver Age Flash—and the Modern Age Wonder Woman.

Boasting such stellar creators as James Robinson, Denny O’Neil, Marv Wolfman, Steven Grant, Mike Zeck, and Steve Rude, Legends of the DC Universe is a modern comics classic…and a must-see!
