I'm not the biggest Star Wars fan, but I find this book interesting, because it shows how big George Luca's ideas were. He had to cut and edit his ideas so that they could fit within the limits of budget, special effects technology, and time. I'm still in the process of reading this comic. Very good. I highly recommend this.
Book is definitely worth the $20 or so dollars. JUST BE WARNED: if you are going to buy it from a third party source, just make sure you are getting all of the issues. I bought this book from a third party source and they only sent me issues #1 and #2 as separate paper back copies, not all e biggest draw to this graphic novel is the amazing artwork. It's probably the most stunning out of any comic book I've read. As for the story, it's not as good as the original movies (better than the prequels for sure), but it's still worth a read. The cool factor of having read an adaptation of George Lucas's original draft is to good to pass e characters are pretty underdeveloped and the dialogue is pretty cheesy, but honestly it never really bothered me. If the book was a bit longer to make up for the quick pacing and character development it would be a real solid graphic novel.I would also recommend to hardback edition, since it has really nice binding and comes with a "making of" section. This graphic novel is good for even mild Star Wars fans.
This is the 'what could have been' entry in the Star Wars universe. Yes, it's not as fully formed as the movies; Hence, it's an early draft. Though that seems to be one of the major arguments against this graphic novel, the artwork is beautiful and if you are a true fan even if you don't like it you can at least appreciate what it means as a stepping stone to what was to become. My partner has been a Star Wars fan (make that MAJOR Star Wars fan) since he was a little boy and the movies first hit the big screen and he was able to enjoy this thoroughly. Take it for what it is, comes recommended.
This graphic novel is something that I never knew existed for a while and it honestly surprised me. The art is pretty damn good and the story, while very simple, is fascinating to me. This is probably what could have been had the current one not been made. While it ends on the promise of another story, I doubt we will get it. Still, I enjoyed this graphic novel and I highly recommend it to any long time Star Wars fan.
So I finished this one the other day after reading the negative reviews. And while I will say it isn't a bad comic, I will say it wasn't entirely necessary either.Spoilers ahead:The book picks up at the end of The Last Flight of the Harbinger with C-3PO in the hands of the Empire. R2 takes off to rescue him and Luke continues to read Ben Kenobi's journal. The rest of the story deals with Yoda feeling a call from the Force that leads him to a strange Lord of the Flies like e story isn't terrible, but it doesn't really do anything either. It doesn't advance the current story closer towards Empire Strikes Back (which is probably why they did it so they can keep the comics going) and the only purpose that I can find for the Yoda story is to show that Jedi must be humble in their abilities. But we already saw that out of Yoda in his three part series at the end of The Clone e artwork is really good though. So there's that.If you want to read an ok side story, go for it. Or if you're like me and collect a lot of the expanded canon then still go for it. But if you want to just keep going in the present story and not read Yoda, wait for The Screaming Citadel. All you miss here is Scar Squadron is planning to use 3PO as bait for our heroes.
This is a tough review for me to write. On the one hand, the book looks great. Excellent art. And, how often do you read a story about Yoda? I give Marvel huge props for attempting something different. This isn't a story about the Rebels vs. the Empire. It's something e problem is that I felt like a new Pink Floyd album, where you feel like there's a message there, but you're not quite sure what that message is saying. All the time reading this story, I kept thinking to myself that the end of this--this interesting story--is going to come together and blow my mind. But, it didn't quite do that. And, if it is there on the page, I sure didn't get "it" on my first pass through the the end, I judge a book by how much I want to go pick it up again once I lay it down. With this book, I wasn't as intrigued as I should have been. I really just wanted to get it read and done. It's a laudable effort on Marvel's part to attempt such a story, but for me, it just didn't e story does tie in a bit with the original trilogy, but my guess is that you could skip this collection and not miss much in the on-going Marvel series.I will note though that this collection also includes the second Star Wars Annual. You get the Yoda story plus the Annual. And, that's the bright side, as the story in this second Annual is quite good. It's a simple story, contained in the one issue. But, it's a story I found compelling, and it features a new character, Pash, that I hope we see again.
A big cup of "meh".I am a huge fan of SW, and I have enjoyed what Marvel has done with the franchise since they reacquired the license, but I gotta say, this was their first misstep, in my opinion. Its not that it was bad; it was just kind of pointless. It was an unnecessary delay of the main storyline that we could have done without. And while Yoda is a favorite, IF this story had to be told, it could have been done in half the time. Not a bad trade, just pointless.
r my money, this is the weakest story yet–not just from Aaron's "Star Wars" run, but in all of Marvel's Star Wars output since acquiring the license in 2014. I'm usually a big fan of both Aaron's writing and Salvador Larroca's style, so the thought of the two of them pairing up for an arc–let alone an arc focused specifically on freaking YODA–really had me jazzed. Color me surprised and disappointed that neither writer nor artist seemed to operating at their full potential here.I could go on and on about all of the things that didn't work here, whether it be the plot itself–which proves definitively that there is such thing as a Star Wars story that is TOO out there–Larroca's linework, which seemed oddly unfinished here, or even just the way the arc sits rather uncomfortably alongside the broader Star Wars lore (no spoilers, but if you've read, you know of what I speak). In fairness, there were moments here and there that worked, particularly early on, when it felt like Aaron had a better grasp of the type of tale he wanted to spin. But the longer this arc dragged on, the more eager I was for it to wrap up. And now, mercifully, it Wars Vol. 5: Yoda's Secret War (Star Wars (2015-))
The new Marvel SW comics have, for the most part been great. The Vader books are, for me, the top tier but the SW run has been pretty good as well. Unfortunately there is only so much storyline to fill between Ep IV and V and it feels like we've filled that gap sufficiently. Now we have filler such as this 's not awful but there is nothing memorable about it either other than the artwork which is great.
I was intrigued when I learned Marvel was departing from the main story arc for this one like they have with the Obi-Wan stories (which have been pretty great). This story, however, was not. It felt like Yoda was plunked into the second half of Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome in a rather pointless and frankly, kind of dumb, story. The only enjoyable moment, for me, takes place on the last page of the last issue. Even then it was a bit of a forced reach back to the Star Wars we know and love. You're really not missing much if you skip this volume. After volume four, I really feel like there's nothing more that needs to be told in this period of Star Wars history.
Up until now, Jason Aaron hasn't put a foot wrong in the Star Wars line. The plotting, characterization, and just the general feel of his run have been great, a real pleasure to read. Unfortunately with volume 5, things go off the rails. Focusing on an untold tale from Yoda's history, this story is a complete side-step with no real impact or bearing on the larger story. For the first time I found myself pushing impatiently through the pages in an attempt to get to the end, which is resolved in a less than fulfilling way. You also get an unrelated Princess Leia story at the end which is mediocre at best. Here's hoping that things return to normal with the next volume.
I read this in continuing the Darth Vader series, I have not read the Star Wars comic series yet, so it was a bit different going back and forth between Darth Vader and Star Wars between issues. All in all, this was a great crossover collection, but the art styles and even the writing styles seemed to clash a bit. I felt that the Star Wars writer didn't really capture the Aphra and Triple-Zero characters in quite the same way that the Darth Vader writer does, although it was very interesting seeing Triple-Zero in the realistic art style of the Star Wars comics. It was also a bit confusing to find this collection when Amazon does not include it in the Darth Vader series page. If you follow what that says you will miss a big chunk of the Darth Vader story.
This TPB takes place right after the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Darth Vader comes out of hyperspace in his lone TIE Interceptor nose to nose with 2 squadrons of Rebel X Wings. Excellent action sequences ensue. This is my first acquaintance with the Star Wars Universe in Marvel comics (apart from the 80's books) and if Vader Down is an accurate representation of the quality of work, it's comparable to the fantastic job Marvel did on Stephen King's Dark Tower prequels. This was also my first digital purchase of any comic for my Kindle. While having a hard copy of the comic would be a lot preferable, the $3.99 purchase price was a bargain to own the story.
I grew up with comics and Star Wars. I was 11 in 1977 and haven't lost my love for the characters. That being said until recently I hadn't read many SW comics since the original Marvel run.I decided to check out the recent Vader comic after listening to the Star Wars Theory channel on YouTube. I'm glad I did.
As I've said elsewhere, Aaron and his team do something that hasn't been done in 20 years in these books: they make Vader scary again. He's a force to be reckoned with, and this is one of the only stories series that brings him into contact with the original trilogy heroes, playing them off of the minor characters that we've been introduced to in the ongoing Vader books. Han, Chewie, and the droids all meet their doppelgängers in tremendously entertaining ways. The Vader series is far better than it has any right to be, and Vader Down is one of the best stories to come out of it.
If you're excited for Rogue One, or just like Darth Vader, this collection is great. This is the Vader we all want in the upcoming film. An excellent addition to new canon, and the best story between Star Wars and Vader comics. If you're not gonna buy both collections then get this one. Artwork is wonderful, story is superb. My only complaint was some clunky dialogue in one or two panels. That's all the negativity I could muster about Vader Down.
Lots of fun, exciting background on charecters......worth thr time to read....the only con would be, no captain would sacrifice thier ship so easily....it's their ticket to freedom....but you'll have to read the story to find out why;)
Excellent art, no complaints on the print quality. Some of the events are far flung and eye rolling like Boba Fett fighting Luke on tatooine. In general, the writers did a great job with dialogue, really capturing the interactions between Han and Leia true to the films. It seems like forever since the the Dark Horse Clone wars series, and this was a welcome addition me. I hope Marvel will spend more time in the post RotJ and pre Force story lines, but this is a great read.
I'm a lifelong Star Wars fan, but for some reason never checked out the expanded universe. But the rebooted universe is great. The story is great, the art is beautiful, and it's cool to see what took place between New Hope and Empire. I was skeptical when Disney/Marvel took over, but so far so good. If you're a fan of the original trilogy, you'll love these comics.
Very fun read. Ties up loose ends between episode 4 and 5 and opens up more interesting plot lines in the process. The art is good and colorful (although I don't like how they draw light saber arcs) and the writing is mostly true to the characters. It's a bit ham handed at times but it didn't change how much I enjoyed reading it. If you love the characters and the universe you'll probably have a good time with the comic.
There is no denying the influence Star Wars has had on modern day films and popular culture since 1977. With the buyout of George Lucas properties to Disney in 2012, it meant Disney, Lucas, and Marvel can coexist under one banner. In 2014, Marvel announced they would publish Star Wars comics starting in January 2015. With the new film coming this year “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, every fan like myself is giddy with excitement.Which, seeing as Marvel is not only publishing new Star Wars comics, but they are putting some of the A-list creators on the projects to drive readers in. I’m not one very keen on the extended universe for Star Wars or any media tie-ins to other media’s. But with big time comic’s writer Jason Aaron and artist John Cassaday doing the series, with the excitement of the new films, I had to give this a try. Fear not fans because this is a solid read for fans of the first three films and new readers.*Cue opening credits with John Williams iconic score*Collecting issues #1-6, STAR WARS picks up right after the events of Episode IV: A New Hope. The Empire’s Death Star is destroyed and is in a weakened state by taking up the outer rim of the galaxy for resources to rebuild. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance who destroyed the Death Star Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, R2-D2, and C-3PO see this as opportunity to strike against the Empire before they grow in power again by infiltrating a supply base to the planet Cymoon 1. What should have been a covert raid turns bad, it’s up to our heroes to finish the mission and survive, especially since the base is guarded by Emperors right-hand man, Darth Vader.Writer Jason Aaron makes an explosive opening 3-issue arc that is kinetic in action and enthralling character interactions that feels just like the actors dialogue from the original trilogy. It feels similar to the jail break sequence of Luke, Han, and Chewie getting Leia out of heavily guarded Death Star. Because this follows directly after the first film, Aaron fills in many gaps of information to lead up to Empire Strikes Back. The complex love/annoyance between Han and Leia, Luke continuing his rigorous training to be a proper Jedi, Darth Vader wanting to know who the mysterious pilot with strong connection to the force blew up the Death Star, and how the Empire came into contacts with the likes of Jubba the Hutt and Boba Fett. For fans of the original films, it’s pleasant to see some of the holes being filled from one film to the next, all the while making an action packed hn Cassaday’s art work looks just like the original actors from 1977. It’s high quality stuff, as all the details of the ships, Stormtroopers, lightsabers, and every other aspect of the galaxy.Why I give the book 4 stars is because issues #4-6 the momentum slows a bit compared to the previous three issues. Leia and Han are doing their own agenda and Luke is off to find answers on Master Kenobi leave more questions than answers. It’s enjoyable, but coming off the energy of the first arc, it’s just a tad slow by ill, STAR WARS VOL.1: SKYWALKER STRIKES is an engaging opening volume under Jason Aaron and John Cassaday. It shows Marvel is pulling out all the stops in making good comics to fans of the films and it looks like things will improve. Consider me interested to read more.
I never really cared for the old Expanded Universe, and I was not interested in the NEW Expanded Universe, but... I gotta say, this ain't so bad. Maybe a little too many Star Wars tropes popping up, like of course they find an AT AT, of COURSE it's Bobba Fett, of COURSE Threepio ends up in pieces... but... it's better than the Prequel Trilogy.
So I just bought this along with Volume 2 and it will be delivered tomorrow. I am very excited to start reading these and from others reviews and the summaries. I am really excited to dive deeper into these characters lives outside the movies and television shows. I just got back into comics again so hopefully these are as fun and exciting as everyone ful Note: So I see that people are having issues with the kindle version. I did see people mentioning that the $4.99 version for Kindle and comiXology is only the first issue. If you want to buy the full Volume 1 for Kindle it is $9.99 and to purchase this right above, click the "See all 6 formats and editions" then click Kindle and then click the October 7th, 2015. This is the full collection. I hope this helps some people.
I was originally worried when Marvel decided to relaunch the Star Wars comics with yet another comic set between Episodes IV and V, because of the literal hundreds of stories already published during that time. But thanks to a tremendous effort by the creative team, this new Star Wars comic is possibly one of the best I've ever read in the franchise. It's fast-paced but not too compressed, the art is beautiful, and the writing is great; the story really does feel like the perfect Star Wars adventure.
Star Wars returns to Marvel Comics and it is fantastic! Say what you will about the old Expanded Universe. Aaron brings a great set of tales as we learn about our favorite heroes just after the destruction of the first Death Star. Well written stories and artwork by Cassidy.
9/10. Some of the art is questionable, but I loved this book. Although in some places it seems to matter-of-fact that the heroes say thing's that are later found out. And I loved how the annual tied in. Will continue to read all Star Wars comics
The second volume of the current Marvel comic series. It sort of picks up where the last one left off. It actually begins with a tale of Obi-wan Kenobi during his days on Tattoonie, where he becomes a bit despondent having lost his way a bit with the Jedi Order gone and Owen Skywalker not letting him train Luke, who I wan to say is eightish here, and feeling helpless as Jabba tax men collect mater fro the people during a drought... on a desert plant. Only in Star Wars. After that we pick things back up where things did leave off. Leia and Han have to deal with Han's wife, who was an interesting character in her own right. Luke on the other hand goes off to Nar Shaddaa in order to try to get smuggled onto Coruscant in order to sneak into the old Jedi Temple. Things don't go well, pretty sure that's not a spoiler. Han's "wife " Sana was an interesting character, although her story line wrapped up a little quicker than I expected. I was hoping it would have lasted another arc or two before the reveal happened, but hopefully she returns in some fashion down the line. Luke's story was pretty cool but now I have to get the second volume of Vader to see if the end intersected there like they did with hi finding out Luke's last name in vol 1 of their particular story arcs. Either way I would reccomend this volume as a Star Wars fan.
I have been very happy with the new line of Star Wars Books (except maybe Chewbacca). Jason Aaron continues to perfectly craft the world of Star Wars between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back. However, while I loved the light sabre battle in this story with the entire cast. What really shines are the Tales of Ben Kenobi tales. While one off tales in all of the Star Wars stories by Aaron. They really show the lost warrior forced into exile by the fall of the Republic and set on a lawless world with one mission. Keep up the great work.
I didn't find this story quite as interesting as Volume 1, but it was still fun. I didn't particularly like the plotline with (SPOILERS) Han Solo's 'wife' in it. I wasn't really a fan of the whole Nar Shadaa story either, but the characters are always interesting and this comic series captures the characters wonderfully, so I keep reading. I had already read Vader Down while I was reading the Darth Vader series, so my next comic is Volume 3.
Jason Aaron is hands-down one of my favorite comic book writers. The characters in his Star Wars books in particular 'sound' exactly like they do on screen, which is a tough thing to pull off for such a well-loved universe. This series is extremely well put together with beautiful art and coloring. I simply couldn't be happier with the direction that Marvel is taking. The blend of 'familiar', while keeping things unique and fresh is really well done. I also love how Aaron enhances little details from the movies that I never really stopped to think about before, providing satisfying glimpses into the stories we know and love that fit beautifully into canon. This graphic novel in particular tells a really solid story regarding Luke on the Hutt moon of Nar-Shadda. The teases to the lore and history of the Jedi are well-played, showing how Luke would have been learning a few things in the time period between A New Hope and Empire. Definitely a must read!
As a life long Star Wars fan I devoured all the Dark Horse Comics, paperbacks & hardcovers up until about 2002. And then I stopped cold turkey as there was just such a glut and the stories themselves seemed to not be all that good (especially the Dark Horse material).I recently picked up the first 2 volumes of the new Marvel Star Wars ongoing and was pleasantly surprised at how fantastic the book is. Volume 2, is by far my favorite of the two because of Stuart Immonen, who I've really dug since his days on LSH and the Superman books. The writing is top notch and the characterization is spot on. I'm especially liking the glimpses into both Vader & Obi-Wan that the series provides....
I never read comics in general, let alone Star Wars. But I was interested in the new Disney Marvel Canon and wow this series is unreal. This Starwars story is clever, smart, interesting, unexpected, nostalgic, heart warming, exciting, and has the spirit of Lucas. This is the stories and movies that should have been made, but haven't been. Read this, read this to your kids, read this to your family who love Starwars, because it is a tremendous story, one that I don't think anyone should miss. Please do yourself a favor and read the 4 Volumes.
This is the second volume in the ongoing Star Wars series from Marvel. The first issue collected in this volume is a tale from Obi-wan's journal. I love seeing what Kenobi was up to on Tatooine between Episode 3 and e characters are written very well in this series. The banter between Han and Leia is on point. I also like seeing the naive Luke from A New great thing about the new Marvel comics is how all things canon are referenced. Luke fights Magnaguards! The imagery blending the aesthetic of both trilogies is so cool. There are a lot of references in Grakkus the Hutt's collection. Oppo Rancisis, Shaak Ti, and Tera Sinube all cameo. There's even a jedi temple guard ere were a lot of great original characters in this volume. My favorite was probably the Gamemaster. Grakkus was a very different type of hutt. There is a [email protected]#$% looking pirate/smuggler Gungan! Sana Solo added an interesting atmosphere to Han and Leia's mission, although Sana's story is a little too Firefly in my opinion.I give this volume a 4/5. I will absolutely be continuing this series. The next volumes are in the Vader Down crossover event.
Much as I hated to see the license leave Dark Horse, which had done some great work over the years, they also left some bruises on Star Wars comic history. (Not that Marvel didn't do the same a few decades ago.) But these new comics from Marvel? Definitely surpassing my expectations! I haven't been disappointed yet. The artwork is strong, the stories are interesting, and the quality is consistent from issue to issue. I hope this series has a good, long run.
Another strong volume--the ObiWan diary entry is the strongest portion and the action arc in this one is quality. The new characters don't detract and raise up the characters we know to the lvls we expect. The art in this one kinda rubs me the wrong way at times--Leia looks too much like a hentai doll

This graphic novel in particular tells some great stories without having to rely so heavily on well-established characters. Slowly developing and using auxiliary characters to further the Star Wars universe. Definitely a must read!
I've really enjoyed the new SW comics so far. Vader vol.1 has been the best but the SW run had bee good until this volume, I wait for the tpbs.I hated the art, this cartoony, anime style is NOT a good fit for SW imo. The story just felt like filler too.
Disney has done wonders with the new run of Star Wars comics and this one is just as action packed as the rest. Exploring the gaps left between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes back, the writers stay true to cannon and keep every comic very interesting to read.
First all, the art is not bad. It just does not fit the star wars universe. Especially after the artists this book in particular have had. Having said that, it was nice rebound from the last story. Higher stakes, and just overall better flow with an awesome cliffhanger.
I've been waiting for this book and it didn't disappoint. If you're fans of Timothy Zhan's star wars EU, you'll notice that Zahn did a very good job of portraying Luke's character, particularly in the Hand of Thrawn duology and Survivor's Quest. Ken Liu continues to capture the essence of Luke's character but he delves in deeper in only a series of short stories, a remarkable feat. Three stories (an imperial's pov, the Tide and exogorth) , stood out to show the depths of compassion and wisdom Luke is learning in his journey to understand the force, more so than being a Jedi. If the EU spend more time to show Luke's masterful role as a Jedi master, this book turns the tide a bit by showing that Luke's destiny is more than what happened on ROTJ. Although I do love the heriocs of Luke depicted in EU, this series shows a deeper side of Luke and the farmboy integrity that he upholds to treat all beings of the force with respect. I give it four stars as there were two stories (the myth buster and the mote) which feel a little flat. Other than that, can't wait to see Luke in The Last Jedi.
Well, that dashing,daring, and devoius Han Solo has done it again. More excitement, more adventure! Being an avid Star Wars fan, I've spent most of my free time reading and re-reading this book. I love it! I would recomend this to any Star Wars fan, young or old. I tried to get multiple opinions in this book by my friends, and it seems that if you don't know a lick about Star Wars, you probably won't understand some of this book. But if you are familiar with SW, Hang On!! You're on for a pretty wild ride. Now, I will admit it, there are a few parts in there where I felt kind of. . . uh. . . sleepy. ..(Maybe I stayed up longer than I thought reading it. . ) but the abundance of action and suspence quickly [email protected]#$%! away. All in all, I would say this is a very good me might say Han is just to brave (or to stupid) to be realistic. But, as Han would say, "Hey, its Me!"
This is a combined review of The paper back book and the comic from Dark horse, Classic star wars - Han Solo at stars end - Volume 5. This comic is based on the stand alone novelette written by the late Brian Daley. For those who had read AC Crispens Han Solo Trilogy (my favorite of the entire EU), Crispen left time in his story to accommodate Daley's stories about Han and Chewy taking a trip to the corporate sector. Virtually nothing is known about the corp sector except what Daley told us in his 3 novels about his favorite character, Han. One of those 3 stories is HS at is comic has good inking and binding but the pencil and artwork is of comic strip quality. I give the story a 5, inking a 3 and pencils a 2, then I round up because the stars are Han and chewy for 4 stars

While the plot and the script follow the excellent book upon which this is based fairly well, the end results fall short of the ssa looks kinda like she's described in the book, but the other characters aren't really recognizable, even Han and Chewie. While the ship renditions are fairly good, the only thing they got right was the Falcon -- there weren't any TIEs in the novel, and those little fighters in the comic aren't e art is too childish, and the words are too big, and the coloring and detail is a bit dull. Still, all of this is somewhat overcome by a fairly exciting story and a fast pace.Another plus is the low price. If you're into Star Wars, it's worth the money.
this was the worst i have ever read. i never caught the point of the whole story, yet i made myself read the whole thing to try to get the point. I never did. it had a poor plot, moved slowly, and to me was too boring.
Great cap and also introduction on an intriguing character we met in Episode VII. This comic showed us a ruthless character who was willing to do anything to advance her place in the First Order. Got to wonder how smart she really is though. Snoke, Ren, and Rey will all see right thru her. However, it’s cool to see what an ambitious and brutal Stormtrooper might do in the Star Wars Universe. This comic series showed us that clearly and if nothing else gets the reader excited for Episode VIII in just under a month!
This arc was just okay for me. I am not personally a huge fan of Cylo and his team of would be Vader replacements. I feel they are throw away characters and weak storytelling. I wouldn't want to see Cylo and his team on the big screen. But that being said I like seeing a new world and as always the Vader action is really good. Rouge One and these comics have really started to give us an understanding of why Vader should be feared.
I am addicted to this crazy character. Great writing, great supporting cast. Dr. Laura and her killer droids are perhaps the best new characters in the Star Wars universe. Oddly enough the movies don't really interest me, but the stories in these comics are great. Kudos to the creativity of the writers and artists.
This is definitely Star Wars done silly. Tag and Bink manage to stumble through almost every important scene of the saga while they try to keep from getting blasted.While the story is humorous, it still has its own consistency that keeps it entertaining and manages to keep true (more or less) to the ere are plenty of little visual jokes drawn into the background. The artwork is a perfect fit for the story.
Tag and Bink-I heard about them reading a 'Best Of' list of the Dark House line of Star Wars comics and I had to check them out. I'm a fan of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern and this is definitely along those lines, although a fun take on the underbelly of the Star Wars movieverse and what it takes to survive or not survive the Star Wars. With plenty of jokes and shout-outs to fan culture along the margins.
