Great to see that the franchise is still going strong. I haven't watched/read past the OG series, but I will eventually get around to it.

finally this is what everyone has been waiting for so that their end would not be delayed, I had already lost the hopes when they announced the CGI movie but at the end of the tunnel there was a ray of hope
