A long time ago in our own galaxy comic writers adapted the original
Star Wars movie into a comic mini series. They then went on to continue to print original stories following on from the events of the movie...

Dark Encounters is the second volume in the original Star Wars comics series. This volume carries on the events after Star Wars: A New Hope and takes us up to the events just before The Empire Strikes Back.

Presented as part of the ongoing Star Wars universe, these long out-of-print, previously extremely hard to find classics create new allies as well as introducing completely new threats for the Republic.

One of the most notable stories in this volume is What Ever Happened to Jabba the Hutt? As in the Star Wars: A New Hope graphic novelisation Jabba had not been seen on screen before so his appearance looks at odds to his later appearance in Return of the Jedi. Instead of a bulbous mass of fat, Jabba is a thin, yellow, whiskered fellow who looks very nimble on his feet.

The Jawa Express, in which our heroes are hitching a ride with everyone's favourite desert rodents, is also a story worth sinking your teeth into.

A nice addition to this series is a chronological list of the entire series of Star Wars graphic novels.

Volume 2 is a great read and will be much appreciated by Star Wars fans old and young alike.
