We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Legionnaires: End of an Era.|
|Collecting 6 Issues:|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
End of an Era was the Zero Hour "wrap up" to the Legion family of titles: Legionnaires, Legion of Super-Heroes, and Valor. Initially, I would have made this a Valor TPB, but a) he's back to being called Mon-El, and b) overall, it's a Legion story. My main reason for even thinking of it as a Valor story is that Valor was the only one of the three titles I was reading at the time.
If DC ever chose to do this TPB, I imagine it would carry the alternate title suggestion of Legion of Super-Heroes: End of an Era. I suggested Legionnaires: End of an Era as the first choice, for two reasons: 1) It distances this trade from the current LSH title just enough to keep it from being confused with the current run, and 2) With the Legionnaires title out of print, using the title on a graphic novel would keep the title in copyright for DC.
The suggestion of Zero Hour: Legion of Super-Heroes is really more of an afterthought. If DC were collecting the Zero Hour tie-in issues into trade paperbacks, then this might be the TPB for the Legion family of titles.
For the cover, I'd be tempted to go with the Time Trapper cover of LSH #61, but eh, it isn't much to look at. Same thought with the Valor #23 cover. So I'd go with the Legionnaires #17 cover, since it's the only other cover that implies the end of something.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
