Chaos Effect definately ties into the regular issues - same as Unity

I think most Yearbooks are OK (but not the Unity Yearbook). The XO one ties together some old history. Originally it was written as a mini-series.

The Bloodshot yearbook is very different for the character and has some good (if unscripted) art by Michael Bair. I re-read it a few times a year and always enjoy it. Very noir-ish.
