Hello, DC Nation! No doubt you’ve already heard that issue #6 of LEGION LOST will be Fabian Nicieza’s last as writer. His schedule just couldn’t keep up with a monthly series right now. It’s a bummer because Fabian and I had discussed some really cool ideas for the series, but I understood his reasons, and we parted on a positive note with hopes that someday we can reteam on something else down the road. So I needed to hire a new writer, someone I felt could take the groundwork laid by Fabian and strive for even greater heights. No small task!

Brainiac is the last adversary standing between Lex Luthor and a source of near-limitless power - will Lex finally complete his quest, or will the alien claim that power for himself?
