Trivia

  • Between issues #237-#240, the Legion had several "filler" stories with a revolving door of artists involved. For example, this issue's main story is a "filler" with several "uncredited" artists helping out. The "Dawnstar Rising" story is an "Untold Tale of the Legion" that was intended as a back-up for Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #237.
