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

I haven't really read much set during that era yet, so I might be checking this one out.

Yeah, that's a very interesting era of Star Wars. Too bad that outside of the Marvel comics, it really hasn't been covered much.

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

It was covered in the Empire/Rebellion comics, there is a mini called River of Chaos, the Zahn books Allegiance and Choices of One, the Rebel Force books http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Rebel_Force , i think Galactic Battlegrounds covers some of it, Vader's Quest is a comic that fits the bill and there were the classic Star Wars stories.

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

I'd read this if I thought it was going to be good, but SW books and comics invariably disappoint me. This is a time period of SW that interests me though, (I own Vader's Quest and read Zahn's Allegiance and I'm old enough to remember the Marvel comics) and Hunter's enthusiasm and attitude is encouraging. Still...I'll probably give it a miss.

It sucks that you feel that way. I recommend the graphic novel Darth Vader and the Lost Command. There's also an ongoing limited series, Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison that I think is pretty good as well. Both of these stories take place between ROTS and ANH. Actually the Agent of the Empire and the Dark Times series, which also take place between ROTS and ANH, are both good too.

I also recommend the comic series Knights of the Old Republic. Though it's set thousands of years before the films I think it captures the spirit of the original films pretty well, though I don't think any of the villains are as compelling as Palpatine or Vader, which of course is a tall order.

I'm going to take a wait and see approach with this title. For the first time in years, I've stopped buying Dark Horse's regular Star Wars comics. It just hasn't been interesting me although I think the current Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison mini-series is excellent.

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

The OT era and the Old Republic era are the only portions of the franchise that have really clicked with me from what I've checked out, aside from the Thrawn books and a few other gems. So, this is really good news.

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

I've been going through all the EU chronologically for about 5 years. I've been stuck in the ever expanding list of Clone Wars era material for about half that time. I'm pretty tired of that era and am looking very forward to the Dark Times era. This comic makes me even more excited to get to ANH and beyond.

The Han Solo Trilogy by Crispin is great.

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

i'm willing to give the first issue a try, but this era has been covered to death in the comics. Marvel's Star wars series, the newspaper strips, River of Chaos, Empire/Rebellion, and 2 or 3 other things, have really covered this era thoroughly.
this'll be good for those newer/younger fans out there, i'm mostly curious to read this first issue, to see if Brian Wood can bring everything new to the table for this era.
