“Felicia Day, Kim Evey, and the team at Titan Books did a great job putting together one of the better companion books I’ve encountered. It’s not just a collection of art in a shiny package; it’s a coherent narrative about the creation of a web series that is a lot of fun to read. The cast and crew of The Guild are clearly passionate about the series and that really comes across in The Official Companion.” – Sketchy Details
“A fantastic addition to any Guild fan’s library.” – GameNTrain

To start off with, the book is filled with gorgeous artwork and photos, featuring our favorite guildies Felicia Day, Sandeep Parikh, Jeff Lewis, Robin Thorsen, Amy Okuda and Vince Caso. Each actor has their own section and we find out how they were cast and what their experience on the show and with fans has been like. We also get some great in-depth looks at their characters and in-game costumes. Wil Wheaton, along with a few other guest stars, get a little bit of coverage in the book, as well.
However, it is the section on the Fawkes-Codex painting that is my favorite. There's a photo of the original posing that Day and Wheaton did for that piece and there's the painting itself, so that the two can be compared.
I also really liked all of the discussion about writing each season of the series. As a writer, I'm always curious about others' techniques and where their ideas come from. We see how the writing becomes an actual episode and how all the details were put together to create the whole. The level of depth that the book goes into will make The Guild fans into even bigger fans.
Finally, The Guild: The Official Companion reads like a love letter to the fans. They are mentioned constantly and never seem to be far from the cast and crew's thoughts. And that's the main reason to pick up this book. If you're a fan of the show, it's a must have for your collection. And even better, if you're a cosplayer, there are some great photos of the in-game costumes for reference.
A truly great show for anyone who loves MMORPGs, or even is in a relationship with someone like that. It will help in the long run if you play this game, you might understand each even better. If now, even lawyers do some on-line gaming, and I should know because one is in my guild!! :)
