Memoirs of a Bronze Age Baby: Limited Collectors' Edition C-49

I read this one when I was very, very young. The GCD tells me that this was cover dated October-November, 1976, around the time of my 4th birthday. That makes sense to me, as I read this on a play date with my friend Francis. He was only in my class for Junior Kindergarten, and I think that was the only time I went to his house. I have very few memories from that year, so it's funny how this one stuck. It's not like I fell in love with the Legion (that would happen much later), as I think I found them very confusing as my young brain could hardly keep the Super Friends sorted out. For years, I was intimidated by the sheer volume of Legionnaires. In fact, I don't think I read another Legion story until they showed up in Brave and the Bold and the first issue of their own series I bought was #300. I have since made amends. I'd love to find a cheap copy of this one.

I think its size and that cover might have helped it stick!
