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 create sure you are getting all of the issues. I bought this book from a third party source and they only sent me problems #1 and #2 as separate paper back copies, not all e largest draw to this graphic novel is the awesome artwork. It's probably the most stunning out of any comic book I've read. As for the story, it's not as amazing as the original films (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 amazing to pass e characters are beautiful underdeveloped and the dialogue is beautiful cheesy, but honestly it never really bothered me. If the book was a bit longer to create up for the fast pacing and hero development it would be a true 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 amazing for even mild Star Battles fans.
This is the 'what could have been' entry in the Star Battles 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 versus this graphic novel, the artwork is attractive and if you are a real 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 Battles fan (make that MAJOR Star Battles fan) since he was a small boy and the films first hit the huge screen and he was able to have fun 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 beautiful damn amazing 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 obtain it. Still, I enjoyed this graphic novel and I highly recommend it to any long time Star Battles fan.
As some other people have said, it's an interesting look into the development process George Lucas went through, but the story is bloated, full of plot holes and some characters, in particular Darth Vader, don't do much of anything.
And with that, Jason Aaron’s storied run on Marvel’s flagship “Star Wars” title comes to an end. Volume 6 – “Out Among the Stars” collects problems #33-37, the majority of which are one-shot problems featuring individual adventures with the usual gang of heroes, as well as Sana Starros and Lando Calrissian. While these problems may not represent the pinnacle of either Aaron or artist Salvador Larroca’s talents, this final volume still stands as a decent enough farewell for Aaron, before Kieron Gillen comes aboard next month to steer the is usually the case with comic one-shots, the stakes for most of these problems feels low. That’s okay, though because Aaron mostly does enough fun items with hero dynamics and dialogue exchanges – pairing Luke and Leia together in problem #33, Lando and Sana together in #34, and Han and Chewie (shocker) in #35– to create up for his stories’ lack of “importance.” He also, finally, gets around in problem #36 to resolving the long-dangling plot thread that is C-3PO’s capture by Scar Squadron, which we witnessed all the method back at the end of Volume 4, “Last Flight of the Harbinger.” Although it’s hard not to want that we’d gotten a bit meatier of a follow-through to this story after waiting so long for it to be resolved – problem #25, which depicted C-3PO’s capture, was published all the method back in November 2016, pre-“Rogue One”s release - it’s still nice to see Aaron dot all of his i’s and cross his t’s before walking out the door.If there’s a major disappointment in this latest Volume, and really, in the latest two volumes of the series as well, it’s Salvador Larroca’s art. Like a lot of people, I really enjoyed his style on “Darth Vader,” but for some reason, his time on the main “Star Wars” title has been marred by an overreliance on photorealism and tracing, which – at least for my cash – is distracting at best and at worst, downright [email protected]#$%!&’s hard not to want that Aaron’s final problems on the series had been accompanied by artwork that was as powerful as that of his first, second, or even third arc, but hey - you can’t have everything.
Well, that dashing,daring, and devoius Han Solo has done it again. More excitement, more adventure! Being an avid Star Battles 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 Battles fan, young or old. I tried to obtain 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 beautiful 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 amazing 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 battles - 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 amazing 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 perfect 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 small warriors 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 quick 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 created myself read the whole thing to test to obtain the point. I never did. it had a not good plot, moved slowly, and to me was too boring.
I've been waiting for this book and it didn't disappoint. If you're fans of Timothy Zhan's star battles EU, you'll message that Zahn did a very amazing 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 hero 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 present 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 present 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 small flat. Other than that, can't wait to see Luke in The Latest Jedi.
Amazing cap and also introduction on an intriguing hero we met in Episode VII. This comic showed us a ruthless hero who was willing to do anything to advance her put in the First Order. Got to wonder how intelligent 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 Battles Universe. This comic series showed us that clearly and if nothing else gets the reader excited for Episode VIII in just under a month!
Extremely nice app! And what the H*ll, it might be a bit pricey with everything added up, but it just seems to do everything right! And the Information you obtain on Objects in friggin' awesome!!! If I had one complaint, it would be to obtain a closer view of Satellites (see what they look like) and actually watch them traveling by. I saw that in another (otherwise inferior) application and it was just the coolest darn thing! Sometimes people buy a vehicle just because the Rear View Mirror Auto-Dims when someone is behind them with their High Beams On. Understand? :-)
Star Walk - Astronomy Tutorial looks AMAZING and is easily one of my most favorite applications... There's just so much fun (and learning!) to be had using this application! If I had to pick one thing that was missing, it'd be that there's no "take me to a random planet/star/whatever" button - such a feature would create this app near-perfect (well, that and a ver for Ubuntu/SteamOS/Linux-based operating systems).
I loved this app. I never thought about how the sky would look other than from my point of view where I live. But this application allows you to view the sky as if you were standing with a glass bottom and could see the stars below your feet! A complete 360 by 360 degree view.Tap on it and you will obtain to see. However the permissions that this application now once, has created it another spyware app! Incredibly absurd the amount of info that apps wish access to for no valid reason!
I used to love this application but now it is completely useless. The menu doesn't work, the application crashes all the time, it just plain does not work. The developers should refund people who purchased this application because it is obvious they don't care to fix any of the issues people are having.
This used to be a amazing app, one of the few that I would actually pay for. I'm not sure what happened but now it doesn't move when you test align it with the sky. How can you take away a feature after customers have already bought it? Total scam! !
Loved this application when I purchased it. Months ago I tried to begin it & it crashed, but I thought it must have been a fluke... but it wasn't. The application doesn't even start to begin when it crashes. Reported the crashes & still nothing... totally disappointed!
Received an modernize on my galaxy 4. Worked beautiful amazing after that. Got a be J7 Samsung now it won't work at all. The J7 does not have a compass, so the screen will not present everything. Do not buy this app, they will not refund your money!
Accelerometer help is gone....seeing something in the sky...lining it up and discovering was what my 5 year old and i loved to do. Tjanks for ruining my sons life.....he is going to end up in jail because of u......fix this please7
Samsung Galaxy S3. Worked flawlessly, really helps finding constellations, naming planets and stars, etc. Takes 1-2 mins to work correctly probably because I usually leave my gps off. Perfect app, but i would still recommend having a amazing book on hand. 5 stars (pun intended)
Whether retirement is right around the corner, or decades away, I strongly recommend you read: "4 Star Retirement - 2 Star Budget" by Jim Olson. This is a comprehensive, simple to read book that provides you with ALL the variables you need to consider - not only when you retire - but more importantly, what you need to do - and know - before you retire. Rather than droning on like a financial dissertation, Jim provides a friendly description of the financial savings you need and other things that are essential to a comfortable retirement - that doesn't require a ton of money. Thank you Jim for writing this invaluable resource!
Jim Olsen debunks several financial myths here that place a smirk on my face. The main: retiring without having to own several million dollars. He effectively outlines why financial intelligence doesn’t mean just having huge sums of money. Because as we know with lottery winners, some people create a lot and lose it quick while others can earn and keep. Jim has a special perspective in that he’s traveled, seen how other cultures use their cash and has a unique interest in the retirement cohort, because he’s retired but also because retirement is that time when we should be enjoying life much more. But why don’t we? Jim clears it up. A must read.
Making sure you have a home that is completely paid off before you retire is critical - I'm satisfied to see that stressed in the beginning of the book! I want everyone would do it. Housing is often the single biggest expense when retired, and it should be eliminated if at all possible. This books seems like a practical tutorial and I look forward to reading more of it.
I gave this book to my dad as he is newly retired. I saw it first, on Amazon, and then purchased it as a gift. The funny thing is that I found myself reading it even though I am far from retirement age. I would have never thought about the role that taxes play in building a retirement that one can actually enjoy. Amazing tip from an expert, indeed.
If you are retired or getting ready, read Jim's book...great tip from the best locations to live, even overseas to maintaining your health in retirement and so much in between. For example, Chapter 7 gives amazing ideas on how to supplement your retirement income...
Very detailed war plan for making necessary retirement financial decisions even when you're very late in your career. Unless you have a financial planner, a lot of of these things probably haven't been well thought out and you may not be aware of future costs that need to be considered. Plus, it's a fun read to consider your options.
What a amazing book. This is a book I would recommend everyone to read once a year. Use it as a base to set your yearly financial plan. All with the end intention to be able to retire when you want, but also to learn that you can do wonders with less money. And to create you aware! Just loved this book.
Very intrusive full page adds that pop up over any and everything. Got rid of a bunch of other apps trying to figure out what it is. Cannot do anything without the adds interrupting and only got to play 5 mins of the game. Not worth the problem
luv android game but found out it was cause of popup ads. deleted all the recently downloaded apps and found out this application gave me popup ads outside of playing the game. very disappointed. surprised that no one else has said anything about it.
