A Taste of Childhood May 7 2012
By Thomas - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

The End Of a Good Series March 21 2013

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.
A long time ago... some things are best left forgotten... Aug. 10 2014
By Richard J. Bartlett - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although it's interesting to read for nostalgia's sake, some of the stories will make even the most hardened Star Wars fan cringe.

There was a great opportunity to tell tales of rebuilding the Jedi order, facing the last fanatical elements of the Empire and building a truly democratic Galactic Alliance... but all this was passed over in favor of stories so ridiculous they were probably concocted over happy hour cocktails.

Main characters are missing or so far off the mark that you wonder if anyone had actually bothered to watch the movies. The artwork was also (mostly) drawn by someone who'd apparently ignored all the PR photos too.

If, on the other hand you're a fan looking to complete your collection and/or enjoy reading laughably badly written and drawn Star Wars stories (especially the final one) then this is for you.

Overall, the stories were great and the art/colors were as well. It was a great end to the Marvel comics.

A must for those who do not have the other novels or graph comics. I love the Star Wars series. Get it.
