Amazon.com Review

This is the final volume of reformatted newspaper comic strips from 1981-1984 describing Luke, Han, and Leia's adventures during the time between the end of Star Wars, the movie, and the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back. Their previous rebel base has been destroyed and our heroes must escape an Imperial blockade on the world of the Mon Calimari in order to establish a new base on the ice planet of Hoth. Al Williamson, best known for his work on Weird Fantasy and Flash Gordon, provided the lavish artwork.

This graphic novel is a great history filler for the time that lapsed between A New Hope and Empire. When read sequentially after the first two volumes, it becomes a whole new movie explaining how and why the rebels chose to go to Hoth and helps to give a better understanding of the main characters motives. All in all, a great read for any Star Wars afficinando!

al williamson is the best star war artist, han solo looks like harrison ford, luke sykywalker looks like mark hamill and darth vader is brillant. anybody that gives this book less than 4 stars is blind. archie goodwin is excellent as well (at writing the strip) i can't say enough about the illustration for this book and it's predessors. the art really draws u in deep into the story and the writing, hans, luke, darth and the gang, sound in character. a really lovely and beautiful book

OK, Im a sucker for anything Hoth-related. In fact, I'd say if I collect anything related to Star Wars specifically, it's anything to to with Hoth, the battle, the forces (including, and especially, the Rebellion's special forces). This comic isn't related in any way to the Star Wars RPG, but I've used this book to add some background and texture to adventures I've run based on Hoth. Definitely worth picking up a copy.

Here is probably one of the most unique SW comics. The reformatted serial comic strip from the days of yore has a feel all its own, which can be both good and bad. nonetheless, it throughout contains an adventurous Star Wars-type feel. The art has a very comic-strip-serial quality too it and fails to acheive a dynamic sense like many other comics, despite the reformatting. I've also noticed that Leia looks nothing like Carrie Fisher for some odd reason that presently eludes me. The massive collection feautures a long line of stories ranging from high-quality to utter blabber. The actual evacuation from Hoth and its subsequent excape is the real gem of the collection, featuring a sense of drama and suspense rarely seen in any Star Wars story. It also helps greatly to fill in the story of the war between ANH and ESB.
It's not in any means the best SW comic out there, but its a reasonably enjoyable and interesting series of adventures highlightesdby an excellent 1st 1/3.
