These look much better than the TPM cover. I like the AOTC cover, also nice to see Jar Jar. I like the ROTS cover (my favorite movie in the whole franchise) but there is 1 major problem, the awkwardly placed Palpatine face.
Make me wonder what was lead to the re-issues of this comics. Is really good that they are doing this. But why? Money isn’t the only argument, after all, Disney throw the prequels under a bus when Force Awakens come out and had no shame in humiliating the Prequels and the Prequels fans in any opportunity.
No, there is something more into this. Maybe is because the Prequels fans are making many uncomfortable questions about Force Awakens, real questions, rea critics, not the bullshit of the Original Star Wars against the Prequels.
And they are throwing us another bone to keep us quiet. I really hope that people don’t be stupid and shut up because of this, Disney deserve all the critic for Force Awakens and the Original Star Wars fans deserve all the blame for pushing it.
I think with Rebels featuring so many Prequel era characters and references, the several Marvel Prequel series and references in OT-era comics, the cameos by Prequel actors in TFA, and the fairly diverse merchandising, it might be time to lay off Disney for throwing the Prequels under the bus to market TFA. Just my 2¢.
I mention this because you have posted something no so time ago, were it was say that Marvel wouldn’t re-issue any TPM comics or adaptations of the comics, so it to me is strange that suddenly they decided to re-issues this comics, when they mention they wouldn’t do it.
And I am sorry Solo, but they are throwing bones at use, after the Original Star Wars fans had a feast meal, Disney is throwing us the left overs, wishing that would be enough to keep us happy and quiet, but no, this isn’t enough, without a public affirmation of Disney that they respect the Prequels and they would do spin-off movies about them, they wont gain my two cents, but Disney never would do that, it would destroy their whole “practical effects” Original fanservices bullshit that they have throwing all over the media, that reviewers of internet are so happy to follow because they own stupid nostalgia.
Just gorgeous covers! I already confirmed my pre-order for Phantom Menace😆
On the subject of why Disney is doing this now, it is hard to say. Limiting the content to just OT & TFA makes no sense to me because it would reduce profits. But I have come to realize business & marketing has less to do with common sense & more to do with perspections of the sales person.
Anyway, I will enjoy these editions because I loved Dark Horse’s artwork in these adaptations.
Oooh, I love the covers. for a second there I thought they were redoing the comics, which would also be equally exciting because, more artwork! But I’m glad they’re being reissued, I can’t believe it’s been that long in print, our local libraries still carry good copies.
I’ve been wishing for more Star Wars manga adaptations myself for years; the one thing I can think of that might have some marginal relevance on this is that the manga versions Dark Horse published were drawn around the time of the Special Editions. (If they’d been drawn contemporaneous with the old movies, I have the impression they’d have looked a bit rougher… although that unfortunately reminds me of how annoyed I get when anime fans waxing about “old-school” titles use that as an excuse to get digs in at the Republic Trilogy.) I do at least know the TPM manga adaptation has been released on Comixology along with the other adaptations.
