Star Wars Comics: Crimson Empire II #1-3, Jedi Academy #2-4, Mara Jade #5

This week, I wrapped up the Jedi Academy: Leviathan series.  While I was hoping for a Hogwarts for Jedi, it's closer to an X-Men equivalent.  The Jedi in training, at least the ones in the story, are all adults.  Luke sends them on a mission as part of their training then worries about them while they're away - clear Charles Xavier stuff.

It's a decent series - light and rather obvious on the dialogue, heavy on the action sequences.  As such, it's certainly a quick read.  It was enough to reignite my interest in Jedi lore.

    1. Me neither before now. I was rather busy with other things in 1998-99. Like meeting my wife.

  2. There's something to be said for comics that are quick reads because of a lack of words. I'm not sure what that is, but I know there's something.

    1. Sometimes, it makes for a fun change. And if it were for something other than endless fight scenes, I would feel more charitable.

    2. My favorite thing about the Punisher comics when I was reading those was that they were about 5 minute reads. :P
