4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful, daft and fun., 29 Sep 2004
By 
Ian Tapley "thefragrantwookiee" - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
THE STORY:
Six in fact. First Threepio and Artoo have to help protect the Pitareeze ship-building business from the greedy recurring villain Olag Greck. They then encounter a band of chefs-turned-pirates. A case of mistaken identity in the third story leads Threepio to be switched with the assassin droid C-3PX. Threepio and Artoo then help the cute droids Q-E and 2-E to rescue their friend U-E. Finally, Olag Greck attempts to destroy Hosk Station and the only ones who can save it are a motley assortment of droids including Threepio and Artoo.
WHAT'S GOOD:
There are no galactic politics or epic struggles between good and evil here, simply a collection of very enjoyable and simple stories about the real heroes of the Star Wars saga . The story with Q-E, 2-E and U-E (but no Scrooge McDuck) is a genuinely touching story that will have you actually feeling the droids' fear, sadness and then joy. I really enjoyed the bit in the last story where a bunch of droids stand up against the giant smelting robot Grozbok (although it's more than a little disturbing when one of them is eaten alive!). The best story, however, is the one featuring C-3PX a double-hard but slightly maudlin assassin droid (interesting Star Wars trivia: recent Star Wars material states that 3PX was, in fact, built by Darth Maul!).
WHAT'S BAD:
I wasn't really struck on the bit with the chef/pirates and I thought the b'rknaa aliens on Indobok were a really stupid and scientifically implausible idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great art! Good stories., 5 Mar 1999
By A Customer
If you like the droids in the movies, you'll like these comics! (I'm a Star Wars fan so I might be partial.) As a Dad to 2 boys, 5 and 9, I read alot of comics. These are not beyond my boys' comprehension, and the kids love Artoo and Threepio!
