Oh yeah. The art's definitely way better in this one. Just as one example, I love the way Winter looks here. I mean, I think I remember at one point in the novels Leia saying something that when the two of them were growing up together, people always mistook Winter for the princess instead of her, and with the art here, you can see why.
Leia looks exactly like she should. A little rough around the edges, but in a good way: in that sort of "I may have been raised a princess, but I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty" kind of way. Likewise, Winter is just drawn so... regal here, it's just a very nice contrast.
