Library Journal - Library JournalThis new, smaller (51/2" x 8"), and less expensive edition of the first volume of Meridian is the first book in CrossGen's "Traveler" line, created as a response to the success of manga books at this size and price point. At either size, this is one of CrossGen's best series (see LJ 11/1/02 for a review of Vol. 3, Taking the Skies). This edition, sporting a new cover, is an impressive package for the price, and for cash-strapped libraries it's a good alternative to the $19.95 original. But a good part of the appeal of CrossGen's books lies in their excellent artwork and coloring, and these are inevitably less impressive at the smaller size and with the slightly lesser paper quality of the "Traveler" editions. Libraries that can should stick with the originals. (Other recommended books available in the "Traveler" line include Meridian, Vol. 2, and the first volumes of The Path, Ruse, Scion, and Sojourn.)
