I only read the Darth Nihilus story “Unseen, Unheard” and even that is like only six pages so I am not sure if I am completely objective with my rating. But that’s enough for me! Because you know this is a story with DARTH NIHILUS, the most powerful Sith of the Old Republic! He is even more awesome than Darth Vader (ok I may over exaggerate a little but you get the point).

I have read this comic so many times in my life, I practically know each story by heart. I've enjoyed the Star Wars Tales series and their takes on the "what ifs" and further explanations of the galaxy far, far away- but this is the one of the series that really shines. "Fett Club" was hilarious, The KOTOR based comics were dramatic, the story of Maul was chilling, and the story of the Commandos was exciting. But my favorite of these will always be "Nomad". I love the story of a drifting wandere ...more

The best of the Star Wars Tales collections. The thing that set this apart from the first five collections were: 1- Great artwork throughout and 2-Getting rid of most of the silly filler stories. Starting with the artwork; it just adds a whole new level to the stories when the artwork is of this higher quality. It is closer to artwork then cartoon (not that there is anything wrong with cartoons). The artwork is a much closer match to what you see on the cover than the earlier volumes (where the ...more

STAR WARS TALES VOL. 6 Is A Terrific Return To Form

At some point in its storied history, STAR WARS TALES became a bit of a puzzle: it ceased telling genuinely interesting “tales” and, instead, focused on incidents or even vignettes. Some of them seemed at home in the vast worlds sharing star space with worlds like Hoth, Dagobah, and Tatooine, but many of them were little more than quirky diversions of established characters appearing very cartoonish if not downright buffoonish. Perhaps the slate

I always enjoyed the Tales series issues that I read even though I wasn't picking up too many comics at the time. When I found this volume at the library, I was happy to check it out. It's a fun, quick read - I particularly enjoyed the long 3 part story.

The first volume I’ve read of this series, I must say I enjoyed it. The writers are good and the artwork is superb. The narratives are strong and the characters are well-developed. The stories are relatively long, which I liked.

A series that, like "Infinities", explores "what if?" It allows the authors and artists some license to be creative without having to worry about continuity. There are some truly moving stories in "Tales," such as the one about the stormtrooper who has to take point when they board the Tantive IV, and the Darth Vader vs. Darth Maul duel, and the story that shows Vader with 3PO on Cloud City during "Empire".

Collects the final issues of the Star Wars Tales comics. Sad to see this series end. It was by far the most enjoyable Star Wars comic out there. I guess the fanboys wanted edgy stories that are withing continuity and devoid of all fun. Dang you, fanboys!

Varying quality of stories and whilst all are enjoyable reads there is nothing that pushes boundaries. Having said that, as a Star Wars fan it was thoroughly enjoyable.
