Star Wars Omnibus: A long Time Ago Volume 5 collection finishes up the remainder of the “Marvel” comics run on the Star Wars franchise. It collects issues
86 -107 as if these traded collections of one of the worlds greatest franchises needed to be sold on. First off, to get your tastes buds going, this set houses what some fans would argue as unique in the Star Wars Mythology characters (that would never have existed outside the realm of comics) are all here. The lover affair of Han and Leia continue and we even get Lando acting as cool as the other side of the pillow. Boba Fett and many of the films back characters are also very well represented.

If there is a negative, it would be these collected issues were published in the early 80s and sometimes the art doesn’t resemble the actors themselves. But if that’s a complaint then there’s truly no reason to fret. If you are a die hard Star Wars fan, then you need this trade. If your just finding out about Star Wars, go and grab all the trades and read them with simple enjoyment. On a scale of Alderaan and Death Star this is 7 energy beam blasts out of 10. (and Boom goes Alderaan)
