Although sometimes a little awkward because they were adapted from hundreds of individual 2-3 panel comic strips, the art is wonderful and all the characters and ships look right, like they do in the films. The coloring is for the most part very good, and the characters' dialogue also sounds right. These comics are action packed, but they don't go over the line into stupidity as the Marvel series tended to.
Also, these comics have a lot of the little touches...the Luke/Han/Leia bickering that would carry on into Splinter of the Mind's Eye and Empire Strikes Back, Luke reminiscing about Obi-Wan, and little stuff like that. As I've stated, but it's worth reiterating, the art is absolutely fantastic.
If you're going to buy any star wars comics, buy this one and its two sequels. They are fun entertaining classics.
There are several story arcs presented in this volume. The first focuses on the bounty hunter from Ord Mantell that Han mentions in "The Empire Strikes Back". First, I appreciate how this medium is used to expand on a topic brought up during the movie. These off hand comments in the movies beg to be developed into full blown stories, and I'm glad they are done in these comics. The story tells how Han was almost captured by this bounty hunter, and shows his narrow escape.
The second story is very interesting because it features a group of Imperial admirals that are plotting the downfall of Darth Vader. They have realized that it is only a matter of time before they fall victim to Vader's choke hold, and have decided to take action. They contact the rebellion for help and Luke is sent on the mission. But things take an unexpected turn when a double agent is revealed.Read more ›
