    With the series creators on-board, I would hope that some of the things in the book have ramifications in the show. Normally that isn't the case in licences books and with this being somewhat of a prequel to events, I have to say, I am not sure why this book is out. IDW are good at putting out quality books, that appeal to fans of the shows and films from which they are licensed. Quality wise, that is true here and there should be enough elements of the show in the book to keep fans happy. Read Full Review
