4.0 out of 5 stars A Taste of Childhood May 7 2012
By Thomas Morgan - Published on
If you were born in the 1970's, then you must remember reading these fresh out of the neighbourhood news stand back when Marvel was responsible for Star Wars comics. You must remember also the waiting between issues and the frustration of missing out a chapter in a multi-issue story. It's nice to finally fill in the blanks!
These were stories with a different feel to those we see printed more recently. A lot of the terminology that is now common among Star Wars fans was still being invented back then and the storylines were much less encumbered by all the canon and non-canon works that were developed for and around George Lucas' fanciful creation. Sure the visual language and colouring are reminiscent of an older style. Sure the themes were more earthly and common sense. Still, these are vintage Star Wars adventures for those of us who were there when the first films hit the silver screen. Really worth it if you're a fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars The End Of a Good Series March 21 2013
By rkstud632 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I actually had the first 3 being a Star Wars fan I needed to finish reading books 4 and 5. So I ordered these in mid february. I read them all till 3/20. I can see why this was canceled. Jo Duffy even though her stories were good she was put in an awful position. How do you keep SW fresh after the defeat of the empire? Had Lucasfilm been there right along helping to "direct" people like they now do for all thing in the universe might have helped. The Nagai were threats and then in the last issues the series wrapped up with we saved the universe everyone is free. I should mention there are a few characters that I really enjoyed I like Dani and the Zeltrons and Kiro from Iskallon . My fault is also due to people wanting to learn the force and Luke says no. I mean his duty is to be a Jedi knight and find others. Not a good way to handle his character. If you already have any of these in the series I do suggest you get this for your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Last volume of Marvel Comics Star Wars is clearly the weakest March 2 2013
By woodrow locksley - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Marvel Comics Star Wars series did not end particularly well and the last omnibus volume collecting that series is also the weakest . A lot of silly stories but some good ones as well by writer Jo Duffy is undermined by bad art especially those illustrtaed by Cynthia Martin. I can only recommend this volume to Star Wars fans who are also completists in regards to Star Wars comics and novels Otherwise take a pass on this one

2.0 out of 5 stars Almost entirely worthless. Dec 30 2012
By WD Preece - Published on
I gave this volume two stars only because the first few issues are fairly decent and there's also a story drawn by Al Williamson. Otherwise, I'd give it a one or worse. My other knock on this volume is its manga-sized pages. Sure, it keeps the cost down, but I'd rather read comics at regular size or larger (not smaller).

Here's what I posted in a review of a TPB that includes most of this volume's content:

"These stories are the worst SW stories ever published. They are only fit for readers who don't really care if the stories match the tone and themes of the movies. If you took the "Star Wars" logo off the front, I'd say 19 of 20 people would not recognize it (only the lightsabers give it away). The characters don't look right, the aliens don't fit the style of the movies, and the coloring is so garish it burns my eyes.

"My recommendation is to skip this volume entirely. There are many good alternatives out there. I don't even recommend it for the sake of completing one's collection. Some stories are so bad they're good (such as the train wreck that is the Star Wars Holiday Special of 1978). Others are so bad you wish you'd never ever seen them. I put this volume at the extreme of the latter.

"This deserves one star solely because of issue #98, which was created by the incomparable Archie Goodwin and Al Williamson. Such quality is jarringly out of place with the surrounding dreck."
