Thought it would be like that, but I wasn't sure.Bass said:You should be absolutely fine. The idea of E is for Extinction was to bring in new readers, and older ones who had left.
There are things you won't fully appreciate (say, Darkstar) but what you need to know to enjoy and understand the story is there. It's little touches to older continuity you won't get, but it's not going to be detrimental.
You should be fine. Enjoy the ride.
I'll post about it when I finish it, but I have a few more trades I'm reading first.E said:I'd love to hear your thoughts after reading it (or as you're reading it) - this is one of my favorite stories to discuss.
Great. I enjoyed "E is for Extinction", but the ending has me hyped for the next trade. I'm thinking about getting it over the weekend.E said:By the way, I don't know if you have it yet, but Vol. 2 "Imperial" is even better than "E is for Extinction." Particularly the last issue.
