This is the fourth collection of Star Wars tales. The first several stories all feature Mace Windu. After those, the tales range in time and cover many different characters from the saga. Likewise, both the level of seriousness and artwork cover a wide range.

As with any collection, some stories are better than others. I liked that there was some thought put into the order the stories were presented. Having several Mace Windu stories together made it seem to be a more cohesive collection instead
Jeff Lanter
The art continues to improve in this series as it goes along and in this volume in particular, most of the art is fantastic. I wish some of these "Tales" were a little longer. Why not have some ten page stories and then a full issue-length to go along with it? Oh well, its great to see this series progress and I'm on board until the finish. Some of the notable stories for me were:

Apocalypse Endor: It has Ewoks and they terrorize Imperials. Can't ask for much more than that!

The Emperor's Court: O
Not my favorite of the series, but, still enjoyable.
Kelly Lynn Thomas
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".
The most compelling character is Leia, just like in the last volume.
