Examining the Star Wars Mega Series: Fate of the Jedi

December 19, 2013

So, let me finish up with “Fate of the Jedi”. Note that I don’t really follow Star Wars online, and so don’t really know the reception that any of these series have gotten.

And I have, over the past couple of years, dug them out of the boxes I store them in and read them again, and in fact I’m doing that right now. So I’ve been inspired to comment on them, and particularly comment on them in a way that lets me compare and rank them in terms of how much I enjoy them, and talk about what makes them work for me.
