i dont know if i like Lea being all "G.I. Jane".
bought and poured over this book last week. i only wished that i could have bought an extra issue to keep it untouched :D
anyway, my ONLY beef is the way vader walks- he does not walk like that!
I'm at the point where I don't think I'll read anymore, I'll just read the summaries.
Pretty good issue, it almost made me feel like a kid watching the original trilogy, so kudos for a mission accomplished to Brian Wood. I only wish there was a bit less exposition, it'd be hard to find someone who buys this comic and don't know who the characters are.
8.5/10 from me :)

Del Rey just takes too freaking long to tell their stories. Stuff that would have been good in three books is bloated up to nine books. Or has an endless stream of tie-ins, like the Vong war.
What I meant when I said they're going in the right direction is that they're supposedly dropping the massive story arcs. They're doing a "Sword of the Jedi" trilogy with Jaina and a series of solo novels set between the OT. The Han Solo novel--Scoundrels--is out (along with a Lando ebook) and Leia and Obi-Wan novels will be out later this year.
Free your soul and let it fly....
I really prefer the EU novels of the '80s and early- to mid-90s, when they were generally either one-and-dones or nice little trilogies. Ever since the rights went back to Del Rey in the late-90s and they started the overblown Vong storyline, I generally lost interest.
I still need to pick up Scoundrels, though. Sounds like a fun throwback kind of book.
PULL LIST: Ghostbusters, John Carpenter's Asylum, The Shadow, The Spider, Star Wars, Thief of Thieves, Velvet, Wild Blue Yonder
and yes, it sure makes me feel like a kid all over again.
Mindor is one of the best recent books:
Scoundrels is good so far.
There is agreat book about Palpatine's master.
There are the Hand of Judgement books which are allright but nothing extraordinary.
If you like the CW and unconventional Jedi i would suggest No Prisoners by Traviss;
I love SW Lore so for me it was awesome.
