There are books I can be objective about. This isn't one of them. I'm holding off on five stars only through sheer strength of will.

If you haven't seen A:TLA, there is no point in picking up this volume. (Instead, you should go watch A:TLA.) If you are a fan, you need this. You need this now.

You also need parts 2 and 3, but alas, you'll have to wait like the rest of us.

Gorgeous art, tons of plot packed into very few pages, perfect characterization, snappy dialogue . . . it's got everything the original show had except the animation. I can't wait to see what's next.
