At the beginning of
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, what would have happened if one tiny, insignificant event had been altered? What if, when Jabba and Leia - disguised as the bounty hunter Boushh - are negotiating over the price of Chewbacca, Jabba had accidentally sent C3P0 flying? How would Leia and Jabba have continued negotiations without an interpreter, as C3P0 lay damaged? Would this small event really have serious repercussions across the Star Wars universe?...

The Star Wars: Infinities range of graphic novels have been, on the whole, very interesting. While the artwork has been questionable in parts (mainly poor artistic interpretations being at fault) the stories have always been engaging.

Sadly, Return of the Jedi is the worst of the collection - as well as being the poorest movie in the original trilogy. The art work varies from good to poor (Senator Mon Mothma looks more like the large alien creature from Close Encounters of the Third Kind: The Special Edition.) It would have been far less intrusive if they had decided to stick with one visual style - either bold and crude interpretations of our favourite characters, or good quality likenesses. The mix of the two, which we are presented with, looks messy.

While it will bring a smile to the face of serious Star Wars fans, this collection is not really a must own book, and the ending, to me at least, seemed a little lame.
