  1. Great episode and great discussion. How cool to have Thom talk about the experience!

    How interesting that both Earth Man and Gossamer were the code names of Legionnaires (in different incarnations).

    Was never a big fan of this Superboy book. It felt a little too 1950s in tone.

    1. Yes. Overall I liked the issue well enough, but it is another example of how much DC was going to need a significant change a few years down the road.
