Collecting the Legion

Or: Just How Anal Retentive Are You, Anyway?

OK, I admit it. I'm an addict. I'm addicted to the Legion. I've got to have every last appearance, whether it's in the comics or in the peripheral merchandise. The comics you can find on my checklist page, but I've also got a separate merchandise page. And over on the LegionPics mailing list, every Monday I write a column about some sort of Legion collectible, its history and place in the grand scheme of things. Where else can you find out detailed information about the Legion action figures or promotional posters? (And who else cares?)

So anyway, here in chronological order and in glorious hypertext links, is the collected "Collecting the Legion".
