A long time ago, in a decade that was far, far out there,
the characters from Star Wars made the transition from
silver screen to printed page in a comic book series that
was truly out this world...
Star Wars comic series was originally released in 1977
and this is the first time that they have been reprinted as
a complete set. Resurrection of Evil begins with the
comic adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back, which
takes up around a third of the 341 pages. And it is a fine
comic adaptation of a great movie.
the other two thirds may only appeal to the older fans. If
you are a major oldie Star Wars nut then the novelty
value alone is worth the £24 price tag. However, if
you are a younger Star Wars fan then I doubt that these
reprints will really live up to your expectations.
was also amusing to see the writers allow Luke and Leia to
snog a couple of times, which is a little controversial now
when you realise that they will be told that they are brother
and sister when Return of the Jedi appears. Obviously
nothing too complex happens to the characters because the
writers were unaware what George Lucas would do to them once
Return of the Jedi was released and as a result the
writers have managed to keep the action at a high level while
ensuring that nothing changes too much in the Star Wars
a fan of the original movies, who read these comics when they
were first printed, this collection was a welcome trip down
memory lane for me.
