I've started re-reading these for the first time in decades and I'm enjoying the experience quite a lot. The first three issues are the expanded adaptation of the pilot film and it does a much less cluttered job of telling the same (still convoluted) story. The dialog is much better here and the characters are given more depth than the show ever managed. I can't wait to get into the later issues where they were creating new stories because I think that is where the comics will really shine. As long as they don't produce a story as lame as the TV episode The Lost Warrior in which Apollo reenacts SHANE in the saddest way possible.
