I've decided to drop this title after issue 6.
While the story is somewhat interesting, I'm not at all invested in the characters. Indeed, many of them I don't even know/care about.
And the art is really jumpy. Like, I just finished #4 (and I'm planning on reading #5 tonight), and I was really surprised by a random panel of the Slave I flying through Coruscant, in the middle of a page that was about X-Wings fighting Imperials. There was no good reason for that random panel, which had no bearing on anything else that was happening at the time.
I had a similar problem with Issue 3.
In the end, I derive significantly more pleasure from X-Men comics than from this series, and so I'm comfortable dropping it after the end of In The Shadow Of Yavin (issue 6), in favour of picking up Astonishing X-Men (as of issue 62, which just came out, and slowly backfilling the collection digitally).
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.
