Review:

When I started collecting graphic novels about Star Wars I wanted to find information on what slotted where in the grand scheme of things. One could easily get disorientated from the vast number of hundreds of comics so this companion is a fantastically put together book to give you some guidance. It's just not all text but it's been done in a smart way that it teases you with tidbit's from other comics or graphic novels into eventually buying some of them. The book as a stand alone would of been useless as just a listing but visually it's very well done and easy to navigate. If you are about to get into the world of comics than this is an essential buy.

Verdict:

Very well done and easy to read. Perhaps this would be of little use to the Star Wars fan's that have little or no interest in this area but for what the book sets out to do it has achieved.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 - Highly Recommended
