Following their debut in INVASION! (Mini-Series) #1 (Jan. 1989), L.E.G.I.O.N. ("Licensed Extra-Governmental Interstellar Operatives Network") began their own series.

This is the Original Art for the Cover of L.E.G.I.O.N. '89 #1 (Feb. 1989). This beautiful Cover was drawn by Kevin Maguire (pencils) and Al Gordon (inks) and is autographed by both artists along the bottom border. The Cover is an homage to the famous "I Want You to Join the U.S. Army!" recruiting posters. In the additional images section, I've uploaded several other comic book covers with a similar layout and theme.

L.E.G.I.O.N. '89 is copyright (c) & trademark DC Entertainment.

I'm pretty sure that most of these covers were Thumb Nailed by Erik Larsen... Cool cover!

One of the most under rated series in the late 80s early 90s. The Story and Art were awesome throughout. Nice to know the OA is out there, congrats on this one.
