I gotta start checking this thread out some, thanks Corman.

I had given up comics, but damned if I don't get the urge...  I bought a SW Tales at the local supermarket while doing some shopping for my parents, and it was surprisingly good (hate that they made the Scout on Endor a Clone...  F'n EU traitors!).

May need to pick stuff up though now...  I would rather get them in that graphic novel type format where they're all in one book.  Just simpler on me, to just put it on a bookshelf.  I really wanted that one Empire series with the Amanaman, but don't even know if it's all compiled in that format I like.   :-\

The storyline you're talking about is easily one of my all time favorites in the Star Wars comic world. It's called 'To The Last Man' and it was in Empire issues #16, #17, and #18. If you want it in a bound volume, you're in luck - it can be found in Empire Volume 3 - The Imperial Perspective.

Here it is at Amazon for $12

Nice!  Thanks Brad.

I'm gonna try my luck at one of the last comic houses in Pittsburgh (Phantom of the Attic) since it is on my one semi-routine toy run.  If that fails, it's off to Amazon to buy that and a few others (to make shipping worthy).

I like that bound format myself...  I like things being compiled in one book.  I need that for customs stuff too.  Good Juggernaught and Empire Era TE pictures.

Republic #76 was pretty good, but it looks like the next one will be even better!

Greivous #3 is pretty decent.  Not a huge fan of that style of artwork, but Greivous is pretty cool period, so any story with him in it will suck me right in.

I agree on the artwork, It was kind of hard for me to get through the first issue. I didn't really feel the story started off great. have yet to read the 2nd or third..

The General Grievous series artwork could be A LOT better. I just picked up #3 (along with Republic #76) at lunch time and I'll be reading them tonight.

I did thumb through the GG #3 and to be honest, what I was looking forward to more than anything else was that Grievous' "experiment" actually came to fruition. While I know to some people that may seem cruel, but a month or so later from the time period of this book, all of the Jedi children are slaughtered anyway, so to see the technology of GG's body wedded to one of those younglings would have been a dark and interesting look into how truly perverted and evil Grievous is.  I think the series in general would have been better served with (a) better art and (b) a more adult storyline as opposed to (a) kindergarten level art and (b) a kid-friendly story.

Nope.  Both were released a long time ago.  That article on RS was about how these two books were the beginning of the Clone Wars.
