    • Reference Material
      • Amazing World of DC Comics #9 (1 issue, 11/75), published as a fanzine by DC Comics.

      • The [Official] Legion of Super-Heroes Index (5 issues, 12/86-5/87), published by Independent Comics Group, written by Mark Waid. This series indexed each major appearance of the Legion from Adventure 247 (4/58) to Action 390 (7/70). Included in each issue is a bio of the Legionnaires that joined during the period covered in that issue, a cover reproduction, creator credits, all characters (including annotated chronologies), comments, and a synopsis. Waid indexed up to v3 #28, but the series was cancelled before all his information could be published.

This series focused on the Legion and its supporting cast of heroes, villains, friends, and relatives. In addition to listings and pictures of everyone from Absorbancy Boy to Zymyr, it also touched on the Legion's history, homeworlds, Interlac, the Mission Monitor Board symbols, the Legion Constitution, HQ, Earth, and Metropolis.
