    It's alright. The Prime angst may be rather familiar if you've read Marvel comics in the 80s and 90s, though. The Dark Ages might be useful if you want a story with The Fallen's longest "facetime". Nice art from Don Figueroa and Andrew Wildman.

    I think you'll like it as long as you realized it's unfinished.

    Did they release the truncated Age of Wrath in the TPB?

    You'll be lucky to find either the Dreamwave or IDW tpb for just Vol. 1 as both are out of print, but IDW did release an omnibus with both Vol. 1 & 2(The Dark Ages) just a few months ago.

    Not as far as im aware, doubt there would be any point with a half finished story.

    War Within is a good read, even though it's an unfinished comic series.

    Speaking of which, I sure hope they get back to work on War Within someday.

    No, it's tangled up in bankruptcy court. No one can release it until the writers and artists (amongst others) get paid and there's not enough demand (read: copies guaranteed to be sold) to justify paying lawyers' and court fees on top of the writer and artist salaries to publish three issues of a comic that most of the responsible talent has moved on from. It would be nice to see happen, but it's not a realistic feat, even more so in this economy.

    Probably for the best (for the reader). Most readers would not have known about Dreamwave's controversial demise and the lack of payment to writers and artists (hell, Wikipedia doesn't even acknowledge that Pat Lee had anything to do with it), so it would seem odd to release a TPB of a comic that suddenly ends with no resolution.

    Its worth a read mate. I preffered Vol1 to Vol2 and have not read the ill fated Vol3. It had some really good stuff and I loved the designs of the characters. Story is a little bit iffy in places though.

    The War Within TPB is worth a read in my opinion. Shows a different side to Prime then I was used to at the time.

    That is because Pat Lee has been know to edit his pages and anything to do with dreamwave. There used to be a lot of information on it. But it has been known to disappear. How does it do this? Well it does this because any one can edit Wikipedia. This is why it isn't a good source for reliable information. People can and have made things up, taken out negative things about them/their companies and so on. Heck Steven Colbert used to have people who watch his show put stupid things on the site just to see if they would do it. Truthiness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
