Don't have an Adventure 247, but how about Legion appearances (according to Overstreet) 2-10?

Great idea, I've never seen them laid out sequentially like this.

Thanks. Given all the 9.x books being posted, I figured I had to get creative to keep up.

 

A few miscellaneous Legion books I already have scanned:

Classic Legion cover and equally classic early 1970s recreation.

I want that 312!

So do I! It was my first Legion comic as a kid but it's completely eluded my searching these last fifteen years or so. I want your #311 as well though! That's been equally elusive.

Thank you! A very good summation indeed, and very useful to many of us other board members as well.

This fairly early Legion appearance is tough in high grade as the background shows even the tiniest of flaws.

Superman Annual #4 is on of those exotic SA books that back in the day you might have seen advertised in a different issue but actually finding a copy could be a real challenge.

Of course with many early Legion books their actual appearance on the cover remained scarce. However, Superman #152 has a nice Superman Family image.

Time bubble cover. Without such transport means it can be a long wait to get ot the 30th century!

The 3rd Legion cover with its Sun Boy theme also benefits from the wonderfully burnt orange tones. This must have looked very tempting on the spinner rack!

Superboy/Superman did not require a time bubble to commute between the 20th and 30th century. That time-rainbow effect and all those year digits flashing by must have been quite a display!
