Overall, I like comics in general, but I agree w/ what a lot of you are saying about the quality of the writing and art.
Back in '91 or so, when "Heir to the Empire" and "Dark Empire" came out I was so excited, I was like a pig in s..., well, a pig in SLOP.
I looked at those great DE covers, then opened the book. I finaly got to recognize the characters and grew used to Cam's style. Another great part was the text area at the end that expanded upon the storyline.
I like to read about not just WHAT happens, but WHY did it happen, and what difficult decisions did the characters have to make (what was the internal conflict).
Darth Vader/Ani is such an interesting character b/c we want to know what made him do the things he will end up doing. The internal conflicts Luke went thru on Dagobah to walk into a trap to save Han and again (in ROTJ) when he saw how close he was to the Dark Side after defeating DV.
In the comics, there was Ulic Qel Droma (sp?) attempting to infiltrate the Krath. The whole Sith War was crap, but afterward in Redemption the tale of ulic's return to the Force was well written. Redemption is a personal fav.
DH's ongoing SW comic started out well w/ Prelude to Rebellion" and "Outlander", but the rest of the series hasn't lived up to that, w/ a few exceptions that others have mentioned.
If any of you like the same type of writing/story, I would highly recommend the book "Autobiography of Malcolm X" as told to Alex Haley (of Roots fame).
