JMS Trade Paperbacks Babylon 5

There have been some miscellaneous trade paperbacks (collections of comic book issues) as well as a graphic novel (a story accompanied by pictures) that J. Michael Straczynski has done over the years. They have quite a wide range of content from Babylon 5 to fairy tale fantasy. In fact, these books have become so numerous that we had to split them up into three categories: Babylon 5, Top Cow (Joe's Comics) and Marvel (Amazing Spider-Man). Also, be sure to check out the Comics by JMS section for more information about many of these titles.

NOTE: Trade paperbacks are listed by publication date from newest to oldest.

#1-4,11: The Price of Peace (Babylon 5)
Author: J. Michael Straczynski -- Published: Nov 1998 -- Format: TPB
Amazon Amazon.com Price: -- This item is currently not available.
Cover Image DESCRIPTION:
Introduction by series creator J. Michael Straczynski. An inexpensive trade paperback collecting stories selected from the 1994-95 ongoing DC comic-book series based upon the cutting-edge Warner Bros. science-fiction TV show! THE PRICE OF PEACE reprints BABYLON 5 #1-4 featuring the story of how Commander Jeffrey Sinclair came to be assigned as Earth's ambassador to Minbar; and BABYLON 5 #11, a special issue devoted to the professional telepaths called the Psi Corps.

MONICA'S REVIEW:
It provides important background about Sinclair that complements "To Dream in the City of Sorrows". The drawings are not all that great so if you can get past that and enjoy the story, it is well worth the purchase if you can find it.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
This edition was only made available in the USA by DC Comics. There is another edition that was published in the UK but it is missing issue #11.

JMS AT GENIE:
10.3.1994
The B5 comic, novels and series are meant to be compartmentalized and independent, but complementary; if you never read the comic or the novel, you'll never have a problem with the series; but as with the show, the more you see, the more you'll get stuff coming down the road.

#1-4: Babylon 5 (Babylon 5)
Author: J. Michael Straczynski -- Published: Aug 1995 -- Format: TPB
Amazon UK Amazon UK Price: -- Limited availability
Click for larger image DESCRIPTION:
Based on the TV science fiction series, this saga follows the exploits of humans and aliens who live on a space station. Station commander Jeffrey Sinclair is recalled to Earth, where he hears news which will alter his life. Then the Babylon 5 crew try to track down a mysterious assassin.

MONICA'S REVIEW:
It provides important background about Sinclair that complements "To Dream in the City of Sorrows". The drawings are not all that great so if you can get past that and enjoy the story, it is well worth the purchase if you can find it. Since "Price of Peace" is getting harder to find and this book is practically identical (misisng issue #11), it might be a good idea to pick this one up instead.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
This edition was only made available in the UK by Titan Books. This contains the same content as "Price of Peace" but it is missing issue #11.

#1-3: In Valen's Name (Babylon 5)
Author: Straczynski, David, Collins -- Published: Dec 1998 -- Format: TPB
Amazon Amazon.com Price: -- This item is currently not available.
Amazon UK Amazon UK Price: -- Limited availability
Click for larger image DESCRIPTION:
With Babylon 4 trapped in a decaying orbit around a distant planet, time is running out for the investigating crew of Babylon 5. This, the third of the "Babylon 5" graphic novels, ties into the TV series, spinning off from two of the most popular stories, "Babylon Squared" and "War Without End".

MONICA'S REVIEW:
I own the individual comics but have not read them yet. It sounds like this is the trade paperback that collects this 3-issue mini-series. Apparantly this is a entirely separate story than the original "Babylon 5" comics (issues #1-11). In fact, from what I can find about them sounds pretty promising. Be sure to pick it up while you still can!

ADDITIONAL INFO:
This edition was only made available in the UK by Titan Books. As far as I know, these comics are only available in the USA as single editions. This story first appeared in the official B5 magazine in the UK.

#5-8: Shadows Past and Present (Babylon 5)
Author: Straczynski, DeHaas, Ridgway -- Published: Oct 1996 -- Format: TPB
Amazon UK Amazon UK Price: -- Limited availability
Click for larger image DESCRIPTION:
Station security chief Garibaldi embarks on a dangerous mission, accompanied by colleague Warren Keffer. Attacked by an alien craft of unknown origin, they find themselves running for their lives, haunted by a mystery that stretches back to Mars.

MONICA'S REVIEW:
I own the individual comics but have yet to read them. However, from what I understand, it reprints issues #5-8 of the Babylon 5 comics. Apparently, this story takes place before "The Coming of the Shadows". It doesn't look like any more trade paperbacks were published in the USA (besides "Price of Peace") and the single issue comics are getting harder and harder to find. Pick it up while you still can!

ADDITIONAL INFO:
This is the edition that was published in the UK by Titan Books. As far as I know, these comics are only available in the USA as single editions.
