Dark Horse Books
$19.95 US (Paperback)
*** 1/2 (out of five)

Star Wars Tales features beautifully illustrated and occasionally moving short stories of the fight against evil brought forth by some of the most talented writers and artists in the comic biz.
Sound good?
It’s even better if you love Ewok and Gungan jokes.
While this fifth collection of this anthology series is marked with highlights such as the haunting Ghosts Of Hoth, featuring the Wookie Chewbacca and the organic art of Calgary’s Cary Nord, the best of this series is the sport that can be made of the embarrassing Jar Jar (“Meesa a bad move, Mr. Lucas”) and those stunted teddy-bear things.
Chris Eliopoulos’ Problem Solvers, featuring Ewok IT guys is laugh-out-loud fun as is Scott Kurtz’s brilliant The Rebel Club, which fuses Star Wars with The Breakfast Club (picture a young Judd Nelson as Han Solo and Molly Ringwald as Leia) and Tony Millionaire’s George R. Binks, a look at how horrifying it would be to be Jar Jar’s dad.
