I enjoyed this Best-Of series a lot. While I was obviously coming in to a story that had been ongoing for 30 years or so, I didn't feel confused or left behind. Straczynski did a nice job here.
It's a character centered story, which I like. And there's a surprising amount of subtlety in the storytelling, with time taken for beautiful digressions. I really liked the entire issue devoted to Rhino, and told from his point of view.
Given that he's a character that's dumb as a hammer who mostly specializes in running through walls, you wouldn't think it would be a particularly compelling story. But it was.
