It isn’t surprising that Marvel gave Legion, David Haller, a solo miniseries after the critical success that was the FX show of the same name. Legion was praised for being not just another in a long line of comics adaptations, but something unique and unexpected. Peter Milligan seems like a great fit to be writing this book, and Wilfredo Torres – who has been doing some really fun work on both “Black Panther” and “Suicide Squad” – will make sure that this looks unlike any other Marvel book on the shelves this month. We are thrilled to share this exclusive first look at “Legion” #1, which drops on January 24th.
Written by Peter Milligan
Illustrated by Wilfredo Torres
