Totally biased rating, as I and my husband are long-time friends of the author. I don't have any experience with graphic novels so I'm hardly qualified to review one, but I needed a graphic novel for a reading challenge and of course I wasn't going to try anyone else's work before I tried Tom's. The art was great, the story tragic. That Tom was able to convey the tragedy of it in so few words is what, I suspect, has made him so successful.

When I started this book which I got on loan from the library I thought the humor and characterization would keep me from enjoying it. I didn't know if I would like the art style either because animated type styles are kind of hit and miss for me.

That didn't happen here and I so love it when you go in thinking I might not enjoy this book but it really su

I loved the book. Especially the parts where Jedi's fight. My favorite part of the book is the beginning when Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers invaded the resistants team. I would rate this book 9/10.

Darth Vader is sent on a mission to destroy a rebel base. On his way there he imprisons a freighter captain. It turns into an odd buddy road trip type book. There is a nice twist. A good read.

Y'know, if you are going to have a story involving spaceships and Darth Vader, it might be a good idea to get someone that can draw both well. Brian Koschak is not that person.

I really loved this! I read this first 4 years ago! Reading it now really sparked my love for graphic novels, comic books, and Star Wars... Of course!

Luca is a funny guy and the story is amusing, but the art is something ghastly.
Pleasantly substantial storyline for a kids' series. Thought-provoking and edgy but not too violent. Would have given it 4 stars but the art was a bit clunky- especially the space ships. Whoa, they were pretty badly drawn. You can't go "stylistic" with that stuff.
