I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

This is a really great companion piece to the Earth X trilogy, providing quite a bit of background information on the characters, and including two previously uncollected prequels to the series (Earth X #1/2 and a 3 story arc that brings X-51 from his origin up to the point where we find him at the beginning of Earth X. There is a surprisingly large number of sketches and character designs included in the volume. If you are a fan of the Earth X trilogy and haven't picked up this volume before, it's definitely worth checking out.
