Review: Star Wars: The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight

Review: Star Wars: The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight by Tony DiTerlizzi (or, Sorry, I Just Drooled On Your Artwork)

Oh boy. Oh baby. Oh lordy loo. How does one review a book with artwork of this caliber? This is the man who gave Star Wars its distinctive look. To look at a picture is to not only revel in the technical accomplishment, but to be overwhelmed by a flood of memories. Tony DiTerlizzi, the author of this book and the one who delivers us this children’s interpretation of the films, relays to us in the foreword of how, when he was seven years old, he first watched Star Wars on the big screen and became enamored with the masterpiece. I couldn’t help but be propelled to when I was of a similar age, first watching A New Hope. Although, technically, my first memory wasn’t of the movies. If you’re able to recall, when the Special Editions came out in 1997, they came in a large box set that housed the three movies, and when you put in the first tape (how old that word makes me feel) to the VCR it started with a short documentary on the special effects. I vaguely recall a bit of the Death Star miniature, and a car that kept on driving by it, for whatever reason. Though really my first clear memory was of making fart noises by opening the special edition box set. What? Don’t tell me you never did it. I know you did. For you see, I was watching you.

Review: Ezra’s Gamble by Ryder Windham

Review: Ezra’s Gamble by Ryder Windham (or, The Bossk Show feat. Ezra Bridger)

Ezra’s Gamble by Ryder Windham sees the very first appearance of one of our new characters, Ezra Bridger, from Star Wars: Rebels. As such, I went into the reading of this book thinking it would be a sort of coming-of-age story. One where we see a young(er, for this book takes place just before the video short Property of Ezra Bridger. We even get to see that clip in the book) Ezra get his first taste of danger, which sets him on the path to wanting to be a rebel. Instead, we don’t get that in this book. Which makes sense, I realized much later (I’m a little slow on the uptake, you may gather), because that’s what the TV show is for. With all that in mind, it makes for an odd introduction, so it’s best to not think of it as that. It is, at its heart, an adventure story. Also it has Bossk, the famed bounty hunter from The Empire Strikes Back. So there’s that.
