Initially I wanted to do a post just about his work on the Legion of Super - Heroes because they seem to appear more and more on Supergirl and there are rumors of a possible spin off series. But even though I made a special folder for Curt Swan I just don´t have enough good material so I have instead selected the best pieces. But don´t fear, the Legion is still involved in this post as well as Supergirl who goes up against her cousin.
man of tomorrow
and Deejay Dayton on BABBLING ABOUT DC COMICS has more pages from Action Comics 378 and
and you might have noticed that Supergirl wears a different costume than her classic one in The Feud Of Titans from Action Comics 403 and indeed the Maiden of Steel has worn many costumes throughout the decades.

and speaking of Supergirl, JESS`S ( SOMEWHAT ) GROWN - UP TYPE BLOG has The Three Super - Heroes from Action Comics 267 a tale in which the founding members of the Legion travel through time to offer Supergirl membership but because of Red Kryptonite that gives her the body of an adult woman she can´t join the Legion.

and PELLUCIDAR OFFERINGS has The Maid Of Menace from Action Comics 304 and
