Hey all, I don't know if any of you others have seen this before, but I definatly recommend you pick it up and give it a read. It's a "What If?" tale, dealing with what would happen if one event in the Star Wars universe went wrong. What the consiquences would be for everything after that. In this case Luke's Proton Torpedoes pre-maturely detonate inside the exhause port, leaving the Death Star weakened but not destroyed. From there the story goes off in a new direction, becoming every bit as exciting as the original films of ANH, ESB, and ROTJ were. I won't spoil the story here, but if they ever made an animated movie, this would make one hell of one. :D If you guys have read it, I would love to discuss your thoughts on it, it really was a most intresting idea for a comic series. I hope that they plan to do more stories like this in the near future.

How many issues are in the trade paperback? I wanted to read the comics, but I figured a TPB would be out soon. Wow! I should buy a lottery ticket! :rolleyes:

It's all 4 issues that were released last year. Yeah, they don't even try any more do they. A comic comes out then a few months later they hit us with a trade paperback. :stupid: I guess they figure, they are printing the comic anyway, may as well just print the TPB at the same time.:p You won't regret reading it though, Bel-Cam, great comic series.

Nice to see that someone is plugging this series and the trade paperback.

This was a truly excellent read and here's hoping they do Infinities stories for the other movies.

Oh if you already haven't you should definately check out the collected first 4 issues of Star Wars Tales.

The stories "A Death Star is Born" and "Skippy the Jedi Droid" are worth the cover price alone.

Check it out!

ROFL, I picked that up the same day that I picked up Infinities. Just haven't had a chance to read thru it all the way yet. Yeah, the "Skippy the Jedi Droid" tale was silly, but cool. We really need a new "Skippy" Figure :D

I bought the Infinities series when it was on the shelf at my comic shop... I liked it alot... the best part to me was when it was actually Leia behind the Vader mask that appeared to Luke on Dagobah.

I didn't know there was a collected Star Wars Tales book... I'll have to keep an eye out for that one. waht is the cover price ??

The cover price for Star Wars Tales is $19.95 US, $29.95 Canadian

A very good investment.

$19.95 is the cover price. Well worth every penny, especially for the "Skippy the Jedi Droid" story. Wow, that name has come up lately in alot of my posts, maybe I should try to metion it from now on in all of my posts. :D

I really enjoyed the Infinities series. I wonder what the SW universe would be like if this timeline was continued. Would the rebirth of the Jedi be more closely related to the original Jedi than they are in the current books?

I also like Tales. Instead of buying the new TPB, I'm looking for issues 2-4. I have all the others. Good stuff there.

Hey Jar Jar,

I agree that this was the one of the best stories I've read. I couldn't put it down. I loved it, but one thing bothered me. The Emperor's Royal Guards were useing double bladed light sabers. Is this a bit far fetched and a little out of contex or is it just me. I don't know tons about the EU, but from what I know of the moveis this shouldn't be. Should it? Still, I like how Han picked one up and sliced up some bad guys. :rolleyes:

If there are only 4 issues and the price is $19.95, how is that good? Are the Infinities comics that expensive now? 'Cause $4.99 X 4 ain't too good a bargain in my mind. Now if it was 6 or more issues, that'd be different. And isn't the Vader vs. Maul story in #5? Grr!
:frus: :mad: :confused:

I also suggest reading it. It is very interesting and entertaining. I wonder, are they going to make Infinities for ESB, ROTJ, and TPM? That would be sweet. Of course, they would just be for those movies, not continuing from the ANH Infinities. By the way, this is Post #500 for me! Yaay me!:D

The Infinities TPB is 12.95 BCJ. The Tales TPB was the one that is 19.95. No worries, I would have tracked down the originial issues, if the TPB wouldn't have been cheaper.
