Re: New "Star Wars" comic set between ANH and TESB

I've been rereading the Marvel Comics set in the post-ANH/pre-ESB era. Just great stuff fully representative of the swashbuckling fun of the first movie. Of course that's all they had when they wrote those books.
I agree. The Marvel series is simply awesome, especially between ANH and ESB. The late, great Archie Goodwin, who also wrote the majority of the syndicated comic strip also set in that era, is my all-time favorite Star Wars comic writer.

Honestly, while I love the hell out of the Marvel series, I hope that Wood isn't beholden to it (or even to previous Dark Horse books set in the era) and is free to craft his own tale.
