CBR Review: Rising Stars Compendium

I recently reviewed Rising Stars Compendium for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "However, the first act-and-a-half read as merely set-up for Straczynski’s real interest: examining the conflict between humanity advancing and the darker aspects of human nature. The real story here is about a group of people trying to make the world better, to make humanity better, and those who are too small-minded or fearful to allow it to happen. It’s not that the first dozen or so issues are bad, it’s just that you get the impression that Straczynski sees them as only necessary to get to the real meat of the story —- and he’d be right, because that’s when the series really gets going."
