  • I'd heard legends of the B5 comic books decades ago but never came across them before. I randomly found this one and the shadow one randomly at the Highgate oxfam and bought both. I'm really glad I did. This was a perfect little postscript to the story of Valen and Babylon 4. It read as a wonderful tribute to Michael O'Hare. Beautifully written, the characters felt and sounded right. It was like discovering another little piece of that universe. Like Delenn I was close to tears at the end.


  • Ambitious for a three-issue story arc, but oh-so-boring. There simply wasn't enough time to flush out all these concepts properly, and the end result is a fairly confusing mess. Since characters spend so much time inside their spacesuits, it's sometimes hard to tell them apart, and swapping out J. Michael Straczynski for Peter David after the first issue feels a bit like a bait-and-switch.


  • Very quick graphic novel to read glad it expanded on events that happened in the episodes Babylon squared and war without end parts 1 and 2 overall good


  • This book is available online but it must be rare, copies are $125 to start! I think I may skip this one, have already read the graphic novel version I believe.
