Shepherd492 reviews: Star Wars Episode I Adventures

Episode I Adventures


Episode I Adventures was a four part miniseries released in 1999. Each issue was told from the perspective of a different major player from the movie, and served to fill in some blanks and supplement the movie. It was released as a trade paperback in 2000 and was collected in the "Emissaries and Assassins" omnibus in 2009. Because these stories aren't related, this comic book review will assign twenty five points to each of the stories.

Tales of the Jedi: The Golden Age of the Sith

Note: Tales of the Jedi: The Golden Age of the Sith is a comic book released in trade paperback form in 1997. It was re-released in the Tales of the Jedi, Vol. 1 omnibus in 2007. This will be my first comic review, and my format will simply be fifty points for story and fifty points for art. These two broad spectrums will cover many different sub categories, and should provide a very comprehensive review.
