Book Description

Feb. 16 2010 Star Wars Adventures
The movie The Empire Strikes Back shows us only a small portion of Luke Skywalker's Jedi training under the tutelage of Master Yoda. In this story, witness a never-before-seen part of that training as Luke is given the task of finding—and retrieving—an object guarded by the deadliest creatures on the swamp world of Dagobah: the monstrous dragonsnakes!

This is the most harrowing, dangerous, and muddiest mission that Luke has ever faced!

• The Star Wars Adventures series are parent friendly and perfect for younger readers, as well as longtime Star Wars fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Insight to Luke's Training on Dagobah! Jan. 20 2012
By BlueStar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As Luke trains with Master Yoda in the swamps of Dagobah, Yoda sents Luke on a quest to the `jagged place' in search of a treasure that is guarded by the king of the Dragonsnakes. However, Luke must use all his newly-obtained force powers and all the concentration he can muster in order to overcome this giant, green beast and get the coveted item that is so grand, even Master Yoda wants it!

So, this gives a little more explanation to that thing that tried to eat R2 in Empire Strikes Back. That scene is shown in this book and revealed that it was the king of the Dragonsnakes that grabbed him and spit him out. However, I found it odd they would make Yoda covet an item so dearly (although, by the end, you understand why) and it was neat seeing some of the stuff Luke did on Dagobah that wasn't shown in the movie. It's a short book but a good read; especially for the kiddies.

5.0 out of 5 stars more time on Dagobah Jan. 11 2013
By Enjolras - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Luke Skywalker and the Treasure of the Dragonsnakes is partly a retelling of Luke's training on Dagobah during the Empire Strikes Back. I've always thought Dagobah was one of the more visually interesting planets in the saga and was glad to see a new story set on the planet. Some scenes are direct retellings but from a surprisingly different point of view. Most of the story focuses on Luke's mission to retrieve an item from the lair of a dragonsnake. However, as with all of Luke's other activities on Dagobah, the mission contains a hidden lesson.

The comic generally captures the characters of both Yoda and Luke pretty well. I thought the artist artificially enlarged Luke's muscles, but otherwise he looked and sounded just like Luke. Yoda looked like Yoda and, unlike Yoda in the prequels, sounded like Yoda from ESB. Yoda comes across as the wise yet wry teacher. Yoda constantly plays tricks on Luke, some of which are genuinely funny. It's a joy to see this Yoda again.

As another reviewer noted, the story is an allegory for Luke's larger mission against the Empire and how the Empire (the large dragonsnake) crowds out its neighbors due to its size. While Yoda draws the point home, there are also more subtle allegories and references throughout the mission. It's clear Tom Taylor put a lot of thought into this.

Unfortunately, this is a short book, especially given the price. I'd deduct .5 stars just in terms of value for your money. If you can get this on sale or used or digital, then I'd say go for it.

This story takes you back to Luke's training on Dagobah with Yoda. The book stretches out scenes that were in Empire Strikes Back and goes deeper into what all consisted of Luke's training. Well worth your time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Taylor & Daxiong reveal the making of a Jedi Feb. 5 2010
By Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ever wanted to know the specifics of Luke Skywalker's jedi training on Dagobah with Yoda? Writer Tom Taylor and artist Daxiong obviously did -- because that's the setup for this digest-sized Star Wars tale that is apocryphal to The Emtire Strikes Back.

As with Star Wars: Invasion Volume 1 - Refugees, Tom Taylor does a brilliant job of capturing the voice of these classic characters -- they feel like the same characters from the film.

Taylor draws something of a parallel between the mysterious dragonsnakes who inhabit the Dagobah swamps and the Empire's hold on the galaxy, and does so with restraint and subtlety. This is a left for the reader to explore, with just the right amount of subtext and nuance to intrigue.

Daxiong's art is beautifully rendered and really brings Luke, Yoda, R2D2 and the Dragonsnake to life! This was a fun read, good pacing, excellent characterisation. Well recommended.
