Cosmic Boy Is Around

"Cosmic Boy Is Around" from Cosmic Boy #1 (DC, 1986) by Paul Levitz, Keith Giffen, Ernie Colon and Bob Smith
After Legends, Cosmic Boy and Night Girl were temporarily trapped in the 20th century where they realized their whole Superboy-related history had now never happened. The Time Trapper story would continue in LSH and the Legionnaires 3 mini-series, so it's a bit of an anti-climax, but I do love the Ernie Colon art, AND it made me want to see Night Girl more regularly. They're such a nice, secure superhero couple!


  1. Ernie Colon is such an underrated artist. He did some fantastic work.

  2. Completely agree. And so versatile. The same guy who drew Casper and Richie Rich, also did superheroes and fantasy strips like Amethyst and Arak.

  3. How prophetic; Im moving house and the other day was packing up my LSH comics and flicked thru this mini-series whilst storing. Curious that Cos is fighting the Time Trapper here and years later it was [theorized?] that he was actually the Trapper, so was he fighting himself? Good mini anyway, and particularly memorable for the sequence involving the Challenger Shuttle disaster at the time which was still very current.
