Because it's selling as good or better than any Legion title in the last 12 years?

The same -- if not more -- as the "possible value" in rebooting for the third time in little over a decade.

Which is probably pretty poorly, right? Does it sell over 50K?

Going back to the original isn't a reboot. It's righting a sequence of wrongs.

Oh well. All of a sudden I have a reason to care about Final Crisis. Maybe Morrison will eliminate the Waid-verse.

Meanwhile, I won't be buying the current book. I stupidly ordered the first Jim Shooter issue because I thought I knew what I was ordering, but I was mistaken. When the issue arrives, I'll tear it up and toss it in the trash.
