'Star Wars' Comics

Post  Apologist Puncher on Sat Mar 24, 2012 5:30 pm

In case anyone wanted to discuss the various 'Star Wars' comics out there. And I'm starting this thread off with a *BANG*:

Spoiler:
The Death of Bobba Fett

Killing Off Boba Fett. Oh Go On, Just Do It
Written on March 24, 2012 by Rich Johnston in Comics

Dark Horse have been on a bit of a roll recently with their Star Wars comics. Their Darth Vader series did pretty well but their Origins of the Jedi knocked it out of the park, with rising eBay prices and third prints on the way.

Something tells me they’re about to do it again with their next series, Blood Ties – Boba Fett Is Dead.

In which, as they say, Boba Fett is dead. Possibly. Okay, he looks alive below, but that can’t last long, did you see the name of the comic?

The last time Star Wars actually spinoffs did this with a major character was Chewbacca in the novels, twelve years ago. It sold rather well. Could this comic be about to break those records?

Here’s a look at how the bounty hunter is going to go down in May…

I never entirely understood the mystique of this character so I'm crying no tears.

You know what a good book was? Star Wars Tales. It was an anthology series that usually had some one and done stories, sometimes by lesser known comics talents. Some of them were legit Star Wars stories, some were more akin to parodies, but they were all usually pretty good. Nice book there.

It's the visual that did it.

I picked one up once. Had Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Maul's "spirit". Art was weak, but the story was decent.
