I really want to feel excited. I can't.

But with Marvel taking the rights to SW CB from Dark Horse, it just feels...wrong?

Dark Horse was great with their Star Wars comics. They were making really original stories. Marvel bought it and they make the stories only about the characters that will apear in their movies and make them look exactly like the movie counterparts.

Obviously i'll give them a chance and buy some of these books, or at least try to.

I was kind of unimpressed. Maybe it's just because I'm less interested the in original trilogy era, when it comes to comics etc. I kind of feel like the prequel movies weren't as good, but they're an easier era to fit other stories into. It might just be because the actors from the OT are so recognizable that seeing them drawn in comics just looks weird. Whereas in the Clone Wars show, for example, they made a clear decision to stylize them and avoid that problem. The first arc of the X-Fils comic did that job well, of drawing the characters so they look recognizable, but not so much that it looks like a drawing of a photo, there was artistic license to it. Here, it looks kind of stiff. Honestly looking at the previews of the other issues, none of their art looks all that great--not just in terms of the characters' faces, but overall. It seems surprising considering the artistic resources Marvel has.

All that complaining aside, the scene with Vader was pretty sweet.

picked it up on a whim, and im glad i did. It was one of those last second grabs for me. I got me hyped up, much more than that awful teaser for the movie that they released.

My trust in Jason Aaron is why I'm on board with this.

@joshrocker: Well over thirty pages of actual pages. I mentioned it above. So if people compare that to your typical twenty page comic...

It was a good issue and I didn't mind the extra one time dollar. Thanks for doing the math. After I got my hands on the issue there was less content than I thought there would be for a 48 page book. Counting the previews was especially cheap but like I said, it was a good issue and i'll keep pulling it (unless they raise the price above $3.99). Heck, it even convinced me to pull Darth Vader also which I was originally going to trade wait.

@xwraith: agree, the art and style just seems naff

1.5/5 for me. The art, the dialog, and the story were all just super underwhelming and bored line bad. I'm just crossing my fingers this isn't a good representation of what we can expect from the new extended universe.
