In this second issue of Star Trek Legion of Super-Heroes, the story is primarily the characters figuring out just WHAT is wrong with their situations. While the first issue was mostly setting up the characters — who they were, where they come from, what there motivation is — this issue delves deeper into the story about just why things are the was they are.

Writer Chris Roberson does a fantastic job on characterization again in this issue. I’m a bigger Star Trek fan than Legion fan, but he doesn’t make the Legion characters seem at all foreign to me. He moves the story along at a good pace, lots of action, lots of reveals, and manages to make the whole thing NOT boring like so many crossover comics are. This is not a “wait for them to fight” book, it tells a valid story that is completely believable in both universes.

The only minor complaint that I have, is that, I got the feeling that I would’ve gotten a little bit more out of some scenes if I knew more about the Legion of Super-Heroes universe.

What really needs to be said about the art in this issue? The legendary team of Jeffrey Moy and Philip Moy deliver, once again, some great pages that are nice and clean, easy to follow and exciting all at the same time. There is a LOT of tech, obviously, in these books and they make everything look like it belongs in the same universe, which is a great accomplishment. On the Star Trek side of things, they do a fantastic job of making the characters look enough like the actors to make them immediately identifiable without falling into the “that pose of William Shatner was taken from that one episode of Star Trek” trap. Very nicely done.

Fans of either property will definitely enjoy this issue. There’s a good mix of both properties and each of their stories are moved along at a great pace. The only disappointing thing is that you can tell the action REALLY begins next issue, which I have a feeling will be fantastic.
