Stargate SG-1 is arguably one of the finest sci-fi shows around at present and an illustrated companion has been a long time in coming. Finally Titan Books has launched a guide that should have been an item that every SG-1 fan would treasure.
For the most part it is, but sadly the lack of colour illustrations lets this release down badly.

Thomasina Gibson writes passionately about the show and it is obvious that she had a great deal of fun in researching the book. There are plenty of exclusive entries from the cast and crew and all in all it does the show credit. But, yet again I can't help but feel cheated by the lack of any colour photographs.

Titan Books' work on graphic novels has been well received by fans. They offer quality reprints that any serious comic nut is proud to own. What a shame they can't do the same for their illustrated guides range.

That said this is still a worthwhile purchase (even though seasons 1 & 2) finished on Channel 4 ages ago and anyone who cares that much about the series will already know the episodes off by heart.

If this had been released a few years ago in colour I would gladly be giving it 10/10 as it stands (and this is no fault of Gibson who has done a wonderful job) it breaks my heart to be only able to really give it 5/10.
