Star Wars: I, Jedi
Star Wars: I, Jedi
by Michael A. Stackpole
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars The boko that made me like the Jedi Academy series..., 17 Feb. 2001
This review is from: Star Wars: I, Jedi (Paperback)
Stackpole does an awesome job on this book for anyone who hated KJA's trilogy - in weaving Corran's events around it, who also cuts out most of the rubbish and makes it a believable enjoyable sage.
Next to that his characterisation of Corran as an arrogant, self-righteous and often annoying man, who nevertheless is a hero with some cracking one-liners (MAlevolent?) is spot-on. His and Tim Zahn's scene-setting is quite incredible.
If your a fan of Star Wars you'll like it - if not then you may not be aware of a lot of the background and so it may leave you cold

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and realistic interpretation of the Marvel history, 17 Dec. 2000
This review is from: Marvels (Paperback)
This is a great book for marvel fans used to the various references to its backhistory and the interlinking of themes between it's various characters and groups. Busiek and Ross craft a great history following the development of Marvels comics, and a fascinating story to boot covering all sorts of ideas. The main thing is that they make the superheroes seem real - and realistic - quite an accomplishment.
And Ross's artwork is second to none
