3.0 out of 5 stars Wrapping up the trilogy, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (Paperback)
Completing my reading of the original trilogy Marvel adaptions, this suffers again with the issues that its siblings did, in that it was written and drawn from a shooting script with limited access to production stills. It also has some peculiar cuts (I don’t think this is an abridged version), with Leia killing Jabba removed completely (on one page he’s bellowing for Skywalker to be killed, the next Leia is trying to get away from his corpse) and she also doesn’t meet Wicket, instead appearing after the rest of the gang have been taken to the Ewok village. Some of the dialogue is off (Han refers to C3P0 as “Bright Eyes”, like he did in the “Empire” adaption) and some key sequences have been cut (Han & Leia in the Ewok village, plus her explaining to him that Luke is her brother). The strip moves at pace, though key sequences (the speeder bike sequence and the Death Star assault) are very truncated and some of the drawings are instantly recognisable from stills/production art of the film though I didn’t like the art style in general. Overall it’s good fun, like the others, but I wouldn’t call it a full adaption by any means. Worth a look.
