Format: Paperback
When Dark Horse Comics first announced the Invasion comic book series back in February 2009 Executive Editor Randy Stradley warned fans that Invasion would not just 'fill the gaps' left in the 19-book The New Jedi Order series nor would it 'patch up the cracks or answers all of the questions from the Del Rey novels', so I'm glad to say that Tom Taylor and Colin Wilson's first story in this series, Refugees, lives up to Randy's assertions. Taylor's story contains the right mix of drama, adventure, intrigue, action and tragedy to keep the reader interested from the first panel to the last.
Our chief protagonists in this story aren't the 'big three' of Luke, Han and Leia (although they do make good, in terms of storytelling, cameo appearances), instead we have the four members of the Galfridian family from the planet Artorias and our introduction to them, as well as to the antagonists, the extra-galactic invaders that are Yuuzhan Vong, is done gradually throughout the story. We are first witness to Caled Galfridian's birthday celebrations, husband to Nina and father to a son and daughter, on the eve of the unprovoked and unannounced Vong invasion of Artorias. Then as the devastating and horrifying invasion unfolds in front of our eyes, we learn that Caled, as well as being a veteran of the Battle of Hoth, is also the king of the Artorian people, while his son, Prince Finn, is Force-sensitive. But where assumptions may lead that such a royal family should lead a privileged lifestyle we find Nina and daughter Kaye, shopping at the local market on the very day the Vong invade.
Yet even amongst the horror and drama of the invasion, Taylor still finds the time to add some individual touches.

Format: Paperback
The amount of comic books from Dark horse about Star Wars is fabulous. And with Star Wars Invasion a new exciting series has begun. This first comic book in the series is called refugees.

And what a story. Readers of other Star Wars stories may already have read about the invasion from the Yuuzhan Vong, fx in the Star Wars series "Legacy", where we learn that the descendant to Luke skywalker, Kol Skywalker, later on try to repair all the damaged planets from the Yuuzhan Vong war. In Star Wars Invasion we can now read about this war that precedes the stories in Legacy.

This is a good and exciting story, full of action. The drawings are fine, about average, but with the increasing higher and higher standard in the comic book market I think that some of the drawings lacks a little detail, especially the faces, and some nuances in color. This is absolutely a minor issue and I rate the comic book as a whole four stars, and would have been giving the last star as well, had the drawings being perfect.

That said, this is absolutely a comic book that i would recommend, and I'm as excited as anyone how the story will continue.
