Legion Lost by Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning, Copiel & Copiel & Lanning
The Legion of Super-Heroes finds itself stranded in a distant galaxy, on the home planet of the vicious alien race known as the Progeny. While some of our heroes struggle to repair their damaged spaceship, the rest attempt to forge an alliance with the peaceful Kwai. But can the Legion help the Kwai defeat their oppressors and still make their way back home to Earth?
Dan Abnett lives and works in Maidstone, Kent. After graduating from Oxford, he worked for a while as an editor of comics and children's books before turning to writing full time. In the dozen or so years since then, he has written for such a diverse range of characters - including Scooby Doo, Thunderbirds, Conan the Barbarian, the X-Men, Johnny Bravo, BATMAN, Rupert the Bear, Dr Who, Mr Men, The Terminator and Postman Pat - that he is now clinically bewildered. He created the popular series Sinister Dexter, which he continues to write, along with other strips, for 2000 AD, and has recently helped rejuvenate the LEGION OF SUPERHEROES for DC Comics. His work for the Black Library, particularly the best-selling Gaunt's Ghosts and Inquisitor Eisenhorn novels, is often cited as damning evidence of just who it was that let the galaxy burn. Andy Lanning is a British comic book writer and inker. He has co-written (with Dan Abnett) such titles as THE LEGION, Forceworks, RESURRECTION MAN, and several space-themed comics for Marvel. His smooth inking style has been in much demand, and has been seen on various titles including WONDER WOMAN, Avengers, OTHERWORLD, THE LEGION, and Star Trek: Starfleet Academy.
