Ok, So That Johns Post Isn’t Happening Any Time Soon
It's just not coming together right - I'll pick it up and try again another time.

Prepping for Legion of Three Worlds
Next Wednesday, I get my filthy little hands on Legion of Three Worlds. I've been prepping for this by, well, reading a lot of Legion. Watch this space for commentary and possibly annotations - Michael over at Legion Omnicom will be doing annotations, probably better than I ever could, but ...
