Product Description

From the Back Cover

Enter the lair of the galaxy's most notorious criminal in nineteen stories from todays masters of science fiction.

In the dusty heat of twin-sunned Tatooine lives the wealthiest gangster in a hundred worlds, master of a vast crime empire and keeper of a vicious, flesh-eating monster for entertainment (and disposal of his enemies). Bloated and sinister, Jabba the Hutt might have made a good joke - if he weren't so dangerous. A cast of soldiers, spies, assassins, scoundrels, bounty hunters, and pleasure seekers have come to his palace, and every visitor to Jabba's grand abode has a story. Some of them may even live to tell it...

Format: Paperback
If you liked 'Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina' then you'll love this title. Nineteen separate stories about bounty hunters, assassins, associates and servants plotting and scheming to come out on top in the ruthless criminal underworld of Jabba the Hutt. Each tale is told from the main characters point of view as they witness and contribute to the events leading up to Jabba's fatal encounter with the Rebel Alliance. The book is well edited with a great sense of continuity throughout as the different stories cross paths with each other (And continue previous plots from other Star Wars books). With stories about 'Boba Fett', 'Salacious Crumb', 'Bib Fortuna' and many more this book is essential for Star Wars fans and an intriguing read for non-fans. So go get it.

Really entertaining,

Excellent back stories to all the bounty hunters we know, or at least have heard of, and it gives us a new and vaster insight into the world of Star Wars...bought it to get me through boring days and ended up reading it all the time!

Its a great book with five different stories detailing IG88, Denger, Bossk, 4LOM and Zuckuss and Boba Fett. All great stories and worth a read, I loved the one about IG88, although not sure if its canon or not, read it and you'll see what I mean.

If your a fan Of Return of The Jedi, then this is the Star Wars novel for you. The tales in this novel flesh out the events in the film leading up to Jabba`s death. Each tale is told from a different character`s point of view and adds more layers to the story.

I found this to be and it kept me coming back for me. It was great to find out about the minor characters such as The Gamorrean Guard and Bib Fortuna.

If you like Star Wars and are not familiar with the novels then start with this one.

This book fills in a big chunk of the star wars universe which was
always very unclear. Who is Boba Fett? How come he keeps turning up in the movies? Did he really die in ROTJ, etc. etc.
Like all of the "tales" books, I'd recommend this book to any Star Wars fan, especially users of Public Transport, because the stories are perfectly sized for the bus into work.

Format: Paperback
As Star Wars graphic novels go, 'The Sith War' is second only to 'Dark Empire'. This dramatic story takes place nearly 4000yrs before 'Star Wars: A New Hope' and in it the evil Sith have returned in the form of Sith Lord Exar Kun (from the 'Jedi Academy' novels) and fallen Jedi Ulic Qel-Droma (mentioned in 'Dark Empire' and star of the 'Tales of the Jedi'). This story contains twenty Dark Jedi, six full-scale battles and no less than four lightsaber battles. It's scale is pure Star Wars magic. Also, as the climax of the TOJ story arc, it has no irritating loose ends. Buy it or regret it.

not any more, at last we see what the galaxy was like a long time ago, when the Jedi and Sith numbers were equal.
This is without doubt the best Tales of the Jedi novel out there. There's more combat than in any other graphic novel out there, with several fantastic lightsaber battles.
In keeping with its predecessors, the artwork is fabulous and the dialogue is sharp.
If you must own any Star Wars graphic novel, make it this one!
