    I am been meaning to read these *forever.* I love that there's so much background in this collection. Seeing where Alex choices came about with his family, leading to the Roci. Seeing how Holden's moral made for a thorny path in the military. Seeing Amos's past even more than his no...

    Not as great set of stories. Not nearly as satisfying as the books. ...

    For some reason, the writing felt better than the art in most of these stories. In fact, the facial expressions were so similar that I actually had to look back and see if I'd lost track of where I was reading. You can tell the male characters apart by their hair color, which is better...

    While I found this to hold my interest, I was hoping for something with a bit more meat. In any case this is an enjoyable addition for the expanding universe of Corey's novels. ...

    This book collects the four issues of The Expanse: Origins featuring the crew of the Rocinante released as digital comics and adds a new story featuring Josephus Miller written by Hallie Lambert and illustrated by Huang Danlan. Set on Ceres, Miller's backstory feels as gritty as the ch...

    Para los adictos que estamos esperando la octava entrega de la saga este tebeo se aparece como una especie de metadona en nuestra adicción. No es lo mismo que los libros, me digo, pero algo tendrá. Pues no. No sirve como sustituto. Son cinco historias, una para cada personaje (Holden...

    An interfering mini collection of origin stories for the main cast of the Rocinante. I think the Amos one was the one that was most out there. It would be interesting to see some of these mental gears going on screen. ...

    Um volume que colige cinco histórias individuais, sobre os cinco personagens chave de The Expanse. Orientados pela dupla de escritores que assina como James S.A. Corey, mas desenvolvidos por outros argumentistas. Ficamos a conhecer porque é que Holden desistiu de uma carreira nas for...

    If you're invested in the Expanse series, these origin stories for the main characters are sure to please. They've got the heart and charm of the 600 page novels condensed into a series of (admittedly not super action-packed) short stories. The only real drawback is the unimaginative a...

    Now I know a bit of the background stories of four of our fav characters: Holden, Alex and Amos and Naomi. Naomi's and Alex's moved me the most. However, 'The 'Churn' gives a much better account of Amos's previous life on Earth. ...

    This collection provides a fair amount of backstory for The Expanse series proper without significant overlap with the print novellas and includes Detective Miller's story (remember him from the early books?) which doesn't appear to be available as a standalone. Nice art and good (shor...

    3.5 stars This volume tells the origin stories of The Roci crew, as well as Detective Miller's. The stories are short and left me wanting. (Alex Kamal's story was my least favorite.) Nevertheless, this is a must-read for fans of the series - books and show, alike. ...

    Posted at Heradas First things first, these stories follow The Expanse television series continuity and not necessarily the book series continuity. Granted, there isn't much difference between the two, but they are growing further apart as the show continues to develop the books to ...

    Fun back stories, nothing stellar... well figuratively speaking at least. ...

    These comics flesh out some of the implied backstories of the characters of the Expanse novels, but it's not very interesting to see those stories fleshed out if you've read the books. On the other hand, if you have only watched the TV show, it's probably a better read. Apart from the ...

    If this was a tie in to the books, it would have gotten 5 stars. I liked the backstories, although I found the artwork to be a struggle for two reasons: 1.) The different populations of humans in the books (Earthers, Martians and Belters) are described as physically distinct, which ...

    The short version, for the multimedia efforts on this series, first. I have a passion for reading all the books in a series, but I only like them a certain way ? first to last. If I get going with one, it is just logical to continue one to the next one when I can get it purchased,...

    It's been a minute since I watched The Expanse, and have only gotten three episodes in... It'd help if I remembered which character was which, when I only remembered three of the five. Also the art is not good. But that said, some of the stories were surprisingly affecting. ...

    Yikes. These aren't actually written by the dynamic duo, the art is workmanlike and uninspired, and most of the stories feel like they're trying too hard. Totally skippable, even for completists. ...

    It's a graphic novel I really enjoyed it. A good way to get the background on Miller, Holden, Naomi, Amos and Alex. Some of the things you may already know if you have read until book 7. However, some of the past isn't known. ...

    I've read 5 of the Expanse series books and love them. There are plenty of hints at the characters' backstories, but here is a collected look at them. Some very moving and poetical. I really liked this, but then again, I am a fanboy! :) ...

    Good, quick read. The stories themselves are good (something that's not always the case in comics) and the art is good, too. Great material on the "Origins" of each character. Expands and adds new info on the subject to what we already knew from the series. I specially liked the chapte...

    Origin stories are a tricky thing to pull off. You want to give insight and information into the backgrounds of characters that we love, in a few of these stories that are told in this collection the writers succeed but in more instances the stories either fall flat or offer no real cl...

    not expansive Nice little bits of trivia for the characters. Not sure if the stories are written somewhere else. Holden?s, in particularly, was not very meaningful, as it hardly expands or elaborates on the character?s character. The others add to the emotional depth of the char...

    The comic had a neat premise, but ultimately failed to deliver. It is a series of 5 stories focusing on 5 main characters from the show/book. Unfortunately, the dialogue was stilted and wooden through most of the comics. Some of the characters motives seemed forced. This may have partl...

    If you are familiar with the characters Absolutely wonderful. But.... Not for those who haven't read the books or seen the series. The characters are closer to my imagining of the book characters than those on TV. Fantastic artwork, great characterisation, loved it! Loved it! Loved...
