The Alien Legion: A Grey Day to Die by Carl Potts, et al

Book #1

The Alien Legion: A Grey Day to Die The Alien Legion: A Grey Day to Die by Carl Potts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One of my annual traditions for the new year is to spend January 1 reflecting back on the previous year, taking stock of everything that went well and what went wrong in the old year, thinking on what I want to do differently in the coming year. I then spend the rest of the day reading one of the new books that I got for Christmas.

This year, my bestie picked up a copy of The Alien Legion: A Grey Day To Die for me, a graphic novel that I remember reading way back when it was released in 1986. I hadn’t thought of that book since, until I saw it hanging on the wall on a local comic shop. Brad bought it while I was standing right there, totally oblivious to the whole thing. 😂

The Alien Legion is a comic series created by Carl Potts, Alan Zelenetz, and Frank Cirocco for @marvel’s Epic Comics imprint in the 80s. The basic idea is the French Legion in space, and at the time, this was a fairly edgy comic for me to be reading. This particular volume is a side story to the main series, with the Legion taking on an assassination attempt that doesn’t exactly go to plan.

I’m happy to say that the story has held up, and really makes me want to track down the rest of the original series and give it a read again.
