    Yes.
    I've been reading more out of a sense of duty than pleasure for several issues now; the difference for me is the difference in "world-building" between Saga and Alex + Ada, where Saga's...

    Nothing Terry's done after SiP has struck me as favorably comparable to SiP-- but Echo is otherwise a good solid SF story. Worth a "prestige" format? Guess that's a personal call: I have all the...
