What I thought of...Star Wars #3

Star Wars #3: Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie & Threepio are still stuck on the Imperial weapons factory PLANET, Cymoon 1. To put everything into a nutshell, Han & Leia are driving a stolen AT-AT that's about to fall apart, See Threepio's literally in pieces, and Luke is on his own kind of fighting Darth Vader.
The Good: Plenty! I don't know how much of a Star Wars fan writer Jason Aaron is, but he really knows his Star Wars. In addition to penning a kick ass story, what impresses me most is that Aaron captures the feel of Star Wars on the page. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this book feels like reading a movie. You can hear the dialogue being said by the actors, see the scenes playing out in your mind, and hear the music in your head. It's a rollercoaster ride, just like the films, but with a shock ending that makes me wish the wait for the next issue wasn't a whole month. Add to all this John Cassaday's artwork, and you've got a fantastic comic!
The Bad: Some vehicles from the prequels show up. Granted there were some pretty cool vehicles that were based on the old Kenner toys, but still. They seemed pretty out of place.
The Verdict: What? Seriously? Buy it!!!! It's awesome, and continues to be every month!!
