The Phantom Menace Novelization Review

n4722

The first 2 chapters are all about Anakin Skywalker as a young slave boy on Tattooine.  These scenes could have really helped the film establish Anakin as the main character in this movie.

Comic Review: Shattered Empire

Shattered Empire is a comic book that takes place right at the battle of Endor featured in Return of the Jedi. We are introduced to Poe Dameron`s parents Shara Bey and Kes Dameron, who are both pilots in the battle for the rebellion. Classic characters like Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Leia, Mon Mothma, Admiral Ackbar, C3Po, and R2-D2 are featured prominenetly as well. The very first page has an illustration of Vader fighting Luke Skywalker with the emperor watching on the second death star, which was my favorite illustration in the whole book.
