This was better than I thought!
All the events take place before ANH. the art and colours were pretty great. 3PO takes charge of his own accord and even lies at times. It's so weird.

Droids Special
R2 and 3PO are on Hosk to be auctioned off by Olag. Ig-88 attacks, causing R2 & 3PO to escape in a life pod and land on Kalarba where a Baron's family takes them in.

The Kalarba Adventures
This is a mish-mosh of some of the Droids comics. The stories go together but are also separate.

I was actually pretty surprised with this collection. I expected a series of disconnected one-offs like the Droids and Ewoks omnibus but this is actually, for the most part, a coherently connected story. The ways in which the two droids engage in each story continue to be somewhat formulaic for their characters but I did think some of the larger stories were pretty decent and included enough twists and turns to keep you interested. I liked that, for the most part, there were characters that kept ...more
The stories were fun if not dramatic. Bearing in mind I've only watched the movies and read none of the books, here are a couple things I enjoyed:

A deeper look at the personalities of R2 and C3PO and their relationship. C3PO actually acknowledges his close friendship with R2D2! I get it now, they are like Bert and Ernie or Felix and Oscar.

The different art styles. The first couple stories are drawn with a really terse style with solid coloring. The last one seems like it's colored using pencil o

I remember reading these comics when they were first coming out, quite some time ago. They were fun to read back then, and still are. It's basically the adventures of C-3PO and R2-D2. There are many self contained adventures, but there are also recurring characters that tie everything together. It feels very much like it could have been a Saturday morning cartoon. It doesn't exactly fit in with the canon of the universe, but still good anyway.
These are fun stories for children that do not effect the larger continuity of the expanded universe, but who would pay the RRP of 19.99 for this collection? ...more
Most of the art was cartoonier than I prefer, and most of the stories bored me. I did enjoy the last 2 stories, however. So I give the volume a C overall.
I enjoyed most of the Star Wars omnimbuses, but I liked how this one was pretty unique because it was only about two characters, R2-D2 and C-3P0.
