My first DC comic book was a big one…literally. While I think I first saw Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman first – it was on the small screen in SUPER FRIENDS. But the first DC heroes in a comic book were the teens from the future in GIANT SIZE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1.
After hints and speculation that started with DC Rebirth, the 31st century teens return. DC Comics announced LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES: MILLENNIUM, a two-issue prelude leading to a new LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES ongoing series.
Brian Michael Bendis will write the prelude with art by Jim Lee, Ryan Sook, Nicola Scott and other artists. Bendis and Sook will be the creative team on the new ongoing title. Sook shared his new designs for some of the classic members.
