Preliminary (10/? eps)
Partial review of first two volumes;

Is the final chapter of this epic Sci-Fi adventure good as what came before? Qualified answer: yes, though perhaps not so good as Alita's very best. Although Last Order wrapped up most of its plot threads rather well, allowing the new series to make a fresh start, there's still such a weight of backstory to Alita that I would recommend reading previous series before this one. Moreover, the assumption is that veteran readers will be so used to elements like limb loss, body regeneration and brain chips/necro soldiers, that Mars Chronicles might as well telegraph that they'll be coming round ...
