Star_Trek_-_Legion_of_Super-Heroes_issue_5_cover_AOur Thoughts: This was a great story. Although we were concerned with the amount of characters within the story it does move at a great pace and takes us on a fun ride. The use of Flint, Savage and Q were great ideas and comes across well. The art was very consistent with some amazing details, character likenesses and very strong covers. This is a very strong crossover story and blends in the two universes perfectly.

The Final Verdict: We recommend that if you have not read this story then find a copy now. You won’t be disappointed!
