THE LEGION OF NOTHING

Pow! Slam!

By Sonja Nitschke, editor

Jul 26, 2008: Caveat: the story is still being updated regularly, so review subject to change on future installments.

Legion of Nothing is about superheroes – both kinds: mutants and those that rely on technology and their own brains.

They even come in costumes.

There’s plenty of everything: humor, conflict, action sequences, a hint of romance, and even intrigue.

WORM

My (long) take on Worm.

By John Deathcall, member

Sep 1, 2016: So . . . Worm, by Wildbow.

I’ve got a lot to say, but it’s more for the author’s benefit than for any possible reader so before I jump down into it I’ll just go along and recommend it. It’s a mix between The X-Men, Watchmen and some other dark(er) and gritty comic book series (though completely original). It’s got flaws, just how many and grave depends on your perspective, but it’s worth the read if only for the author’s amazing creativity.
