Quote:
the defaced version is the copy that CDS Sergeant Edwards¹ handed to Private Karl Tagon on March 1st, 3035.

Karl’s book has some mileage on it. He made notes on the pages, and on January 28th, 3093, handed it off to his son, Captain Kaff Tagon, who had it for six years, making his own notes. He gifted it to Captain Alexia Murtaugh in 3099, and she added her notes. When Murtaugh was injured in early 3100 Sergeant Schlock went through her stuff, and borrowed the book. He found a felt-tip pen, too, and treated the existing notes as permission to deploy it.


So, the first thing: I don't think I've realized just how old the cast is.
The second thing: We just passed 3100 in a very recent book; the turn of the century and how you count it was even a point in the plot and the page annotations.

So this is really current stuff.

Will we see this book actually appear somewhere in comic? Will we find out what Murtaugh does/did to Schlock for writing in her book?

I can't imagine any reader wanting anything other than the defaced copy. From a purely economic standpoint, it has more content. From the standpoint of a reader who enjoys the comic, more personal insights into the characters is always fun.

The undefaced copy makes a better prop.

I've ordered both. It solves the problem of "which is better".

Ditto. One to read and one to carry as a character prop (if I ever do any LARPing in the future).

And here I was, unable to come up with a good reason to order the pristine version.

Props, perfect. 'cept that I don't do any LARP'ing anymore (none around me up here.)
