I just got mine from Amazon today!
At a glance, I noticed three things:
1- Love the art.
2- Love the structure.
3- (and I totally called that this would happen) I love how it includes reference to key events in comics. At a glance I saw the Knight Errant comics, the Jedi vs. Sith comics, Dark Empire, and Union. In the case of the first two, they tie deeply into novels, so it makes sense to reference them. For the latter two, these depict important events, so an accurate history must include them. LOVE IT.
It was the year of fire… the year of destruction… the year we took back what was ours.
It was the year of rebirth… the year of great sadness… the year of pain… and the year of joy.
It was a new age. It was the end of history. It was the year everything changed.
The year is 2261.
The place: Babylon 5.
