Well I finally got around to buying Republic Commando Hard Contact. So far it seems very interesting. Haven't gotten very far though so we'll see if it keeps my interest and motivates me to buy the other Republic Commando books that are out.




Shocked *gasp* You haven't read the Republic Commando books? Wink Laughing I guess you want to know what all the hoopla is about. Smile I hope you like Hard Contact, it was almost a breath of fresh air for me; reading a SW story from a non-jedi perspective.

I've read the RC books in a strange order. The first one I read was True Colors, and while I enjoyed it, I couldn't comprehend all these diffrent character for the first part of the book. Then I read Hard Contact, which introduced us to Omega Squad and Etain. Now I'm about halfway through Triple Zero, which is alot more complex character wise than Hard Contact.

Overall, good series. So far the first is still the best.

I'm just starting to reread Betrayal. I plan to go through the entire LOTF series again before I read the last one.

Anyone checked out the Star Wars Omnibus Tales of the Jedi Volume 2 yet? I didn't realize it was out already or else I would have already picked it up. I know volume one was pretty good so I'll definitely get this one too.

I saw it for sale this past week at my comic store but since I already have all the individual TPBs, I haven't gotten these. However, like I've said before, this is a great deal and be sure to get these if this era or the KOTOR games are at all interesting to you.

Well I just finished rereading The Crystal Star, I think I might reread Dark Force Rising next or maybe the Hand of Thrawn duology. Been a while since I've read those.

By the way, it was kind of neat rereading The Crystal Star because some of the lines in the book unknowingly foreshadowed things things that actually happened later on in the series or are happening now in the LOTF. For one Han says a line about never leaving Chewie behind when the Falcon is about to take off (poor Chewie, if he only knew). And Han also takes a moment at one point to ponder his fear of his children falling to the dark side. It happened early on in the story and was rather poignant. Though it was not intended, it really fit well with Jacen's eventual fall. It was interesting to read about Han's fears and to know that they would actually come true and he would have to deal with them.

Plus I realized that Waru didn't die. He simply went back to his universe. I found this interesting because it means he could come back, even though it's unlikely.

Having read it again, I still don't think it was that bad of a book. Not great, but average and still worth reading. Oh well.

The Crystal Star isn't really that bad of a book, as books go, but just the entire Waru plot was sort of bizzare and not very Star Wars-ish. The sith try to come back yet again. Mostly it's just a bunch of re-hashed stuff, and I think that's why some fans don't like it.

Reading Tales of the Jedi Omnibus Volume 2 and loving it. I'm 3/4 of the way through right now. I highly recommend this to anyone who would like to know more about the old Sith and Jedi of legend. Even if you don't really get into the comics I think this type of collection is an exception. The omnibuses really capture the breadth and scope of a novel very well plus they add a pictoral dimension to the experience. That, and the stories involved are top notch. They provide a lot of insight and exploration of the dark and light side of the Force. Their flaws and strengths, along with some wonderful explorations of characters and how they deal with war between the light and the dark.

I think I'm going to tear into the X-wing omnibuses next...
