"Icon is that rarest of creatures -- a well-told adventure story that achieves genuine political depth. Highly recommended."

I already have the first printing of this collection, but I plan to re-read it in time for the release of the new one. Hopefully, more of the series is to follow, but I imagine this printing needs to do well for that to happen.

I enjoyed this collection. I hope there's more to come. Want to see Icon solve the mystery of the "Big Bang" and if he ever comes to accept Earth as his home and his place as its hero.

Hope to see more interaction with DMZ as well.
