Grade: Help!

It appears this is the exact same title that EuroArts published in 2012 except for "In Memoriam" artwork added to the front cover in 2015. We have deleted the 2012 version from the Alphalist. We have no inkling why EuroArts would go to the trouble to put this out again with such a small change.

Please help us by writing a comment that we can place here as a mini-review of this title.
