STAR WARS OMNIBUS: A LONG TIME AGO... VOLUME 3 collects issues 50 - 67 and Annual #2 of Marvel Comics' classic Star Wars title. At this point in the series, The Empire Strikes Back had wrapped up and Lucasfilm appeared to be taking a greater hand in the direction of the stories and art. At the time, I felt that the series wasn't as fun as it had been, and my recent reading of this volume confirmed that, but there was still some enjoyment to be had. Volume 3 starts off with the double-length "The Crimson Forever", one of my favorite stories of the series. That leads to Archie Goodwin's exit as regular writer and brings in David Michelinie and Walt Simonson as frequent co-writers, with Simonson also taking on art duties. While the covers are pure Simonson, the interiors don't resemble his standard style, and that's because the pages are inked by Tom Palmer. I suspect that Palmer was chosen in order to give the major characters more of a movie likeness, but his work unfortunately causes Simonson's normally dynamic pencils to lose something.

Other story stand-outs include an Imperial conspiracy to kill Darth Vader, the return of Lobot (yay!), and the first appearances of Plif the Hoojib and Shira Brie. An unfortunate addition to the series is issues 53 - 54, which actually recycles story and art from an unused John Carter of Mars story into a Princess Leia adventure. It has to be seen (but not enjoyed) to be believed.

The art for Marvel 50-67 is better than a lot of the art before this. Walter Simonson did most (if not all) of the penciling for these, and his work is very good.
There is a bit less of "previous issue" notes, but there are still enough to be annoying. If I don't know a part of the past story, that's my fault.

Thee third volume of the Star Wars Omnibus series A Long Time Ago is the best of the volumes collecting the Marvel Comics Star Wars series. Despite no movie adaptations the stories operated at a higher level in this volume mainly because there were no clunkers that sruck me as lousy and the art work continued to be solid. I strongly recommend this volume to all Star Wars fans especially the last few stories in which Luke becomes an outcast among the rebels and then gets back his good name
