Sparkling Diplomacy: A Starslip Crisis Collection
by Kristofer Straub
In this volume, the story really starts to ramp up, with the first inklings of titular crisis coming into play. This is also the last part of this series of reprints-- before doing a planned third volume, Straub canceled it and replaced it with a new format that included over three times as many strips in a single book, starting from the beginning once again. And I bought the first volume of this new series, despite the fact that I'd already paid for almost two-thirds of its content-- and I could have gotten all of it for free! I guess I'm just a sucker like that.
