A tie-in for the video game.  Good.  I was worried this would be yet another Zula drag-out.

They're going really big with the interconnecting stories of late, aren't they.

Interesting.
Although Olivia didn't seem like the type of person who would become a Colonial Marine.
I wonder if she still carries a certain thing in a bag with her.

Another ACM? Is Randy overseeing this?  ;D

Olivia as a marine huh? Not expecting that.

They preferred to make a "sequel" to Echo instead of one to The Cold Forge? Really?

They couldn't make Blue into a Colonial Marine.

Oh hell yeah! Ties into the new game? Continues from Echo? Now I'm definitely getting that novel. I really appreciate how much they're trying to connect the recent entries, I hope it works out well. It's intriguing so far, I'll at least give them that.

Kinda glad that Amanda's not mentioned and getting some rest. But it's sad that Tristan's not drawing... Hope the art is nice.
