Star Wars Tales
« on: September 19, 2008, 12:06 PM »
I've been on a bit of a TPB buying kick lately, and one of the SW ones I've been looking at are the SW Tales books.  I've never read any of them, but they seem to get fairly favorable reviews on Amazon (if you can go by that at all).  I was just wondering if anyone here had read them, and if you would recommend them as good/fun reads.

Here's the page for them at Amazon:

I would.  I have all, or almost all of them and they are good reads.  Its a collection of a whole bunch of comic books, so there aren't story lines across the whole volume, but it does introduce you to areas of the EU you might not have come across.  I don't remember who drew them, but the ones that are in the same style as the Tag & Bink comics are some of my favorites, I like how they put little nods to other types of Sci-Fi and pop culture in the background.  I'd recommend getting them.

Plus, now that they've been out a couple years, they are significantly below the MSRP, so there's that going for them too.

SW Tales is one of myfavorite comic series to pick up (in TPB)...  Empire, and Rebellion are next on my list, but SW Tales is pretty fantastic.  Some stories suck, some are just good, and some are flawlessly cool EU.

Love SW Tales.  I have them all.  They are a really good collection.  Definitely recommend them.
