It's been a while since I actually sat down and wrote a review for a comic, and this one seemed like a great place to start back up! I'll admit, I was actually very unfamiliar with the Legion character before the FX TV show came out in 2017. That turned out to be one of my favorite shows of the year, and I can't wait for it to come back! Which means the timing of this series is perfect, tiding me over a little while I wait for the show to return.
David Haller, the mutant known as Legion, returns in this series, seemingly haunted by yet another personality that is trying to break out. He seeks the help of psychotherapist-to-the-stars Dr. Hannah Jones. But it seems that someone, or something, is already reaching out to her mind.
This issue didn't do much more than introduce us to our characters and set the stage for something bigger, but I still enjoyed it. The art was the standout for me, reminding me of the X-Men comics I read as a kid.
I also really enjoyed seeing some of Legion's various personalities show through. The way it's written, with Legion having actual conversations with the various personalities appearing as people, is great. It's not just him talking to himself, which makes for a great visual.
All-in-all, this comic is definitely for a specific taste. A lot of what is happening is in the mind, which is right up my alley, but we probably won't be seeing the "Hulk Smash!" type of battles in this series.
