It was just a matter of time before DC's successful hardback reprint series tackled the Legion's early material. Since this first installment of the Legion Archives was published, a dozen volumes have been released, making the Legion's the most prolific and arguably the most popular series in the DC Archives line. Includes a foreword by Mike Gold.
