Some random thoughts on rereading it.
1) Some of the printing is slightly blurry (most visible on the text) and the pages feel extremely flimsy and cheap. Personally I'd rather pay two or three times as much for a nicer book.
2) The spread on pp 76-77 looks frickin amazing.
3) The higher res printed art is nice, but by far the best thing about having the book version is the smaller dialogue boxes (which, I know, is a corollary of the higher res). The pages look waaaayy better. I'd say it was worth the wait just for this.
4) For the most part I like the new pages, especially the action pages. The big exposition page in the thinkamancy temple, I'm a bit less of a fan of. I think maybe I prefer of the main story arc in book 1, starting with the summoning and resolved by uncroaking the volcano. The complex conspiracy elements (the GMTTA, Hippiemancer-Predictamancers, Charlie, etc.) that come to the fore at the end of book 1/book 2, while fun to read about, feel too much like the world is just getting lost in its own mythology. It doesn't have the same compelling aspect as watching a laterally thinking gamer who gets sucked into a strange world that needs a laterally thinking gamer. Book 2 is a lot less compelling to me for this reason so far (though definitely still good enough to keep reading).
5) Okay, that said, Book 1 of Erfworld is seriously one of the best, most creative, most brilliantly conceived, plotted, and executed graphic novels ever. Along some of those dimensions it is just *the* best, flat out. Rereading it in print form is a great pleasure.
6) There's a bit of info in the glossary that I don't think we knew before. Did we know about the "ruins" mechanics? Or that each hex has an independent time flow? There some other little tidbits in there too.
7) Page 50, with sonnet 28, is going to be removed from the book, framed, and put on my wall next to my other favorite pages from comics. I bought a whole extra book for this purpose.
Very happy with it overall. If you're reading this forum and haven't ordered the book, chances are you should.
