My Review: As much as I love Star Wars and the settings of this GN and even the art in this one, I am not impressed. This was a rather short GN but it definitely need to be longer. You are constantly jumping around to different storylines and nothing is really all that clear. You can get the main gist of what is going on but you know there is a lot more underlying plot lines that just aren't clear. I have the last volume in this set but am starting to think that these epic storylines are better off left in full length novels and movies.
My Rating: I love the vast variety of characters that can be created in the Star Wars world and the art work in this one is really good but the storyline is just too jumbled up. I give it a rating of One Paw and a Stump Wag.


  1. Sad! I love all thing Star Wars. Too bad this one fell flat for you.

    1. I have always love the movies and the various novels I have read but I am really struggling with these GNs, I do have the Princess Leia single issues, maybe a more familiar character and storyline would help ease into it.
