To The Comic Book Store #1

Every Wednesday is "Free Comic Book Day" at our local comic book store, Coliseum of Comics, where you can go and pick up four free comics (per person).

Granted most of these comics are from the early to mid-nineties, with early 2000s mixed in every once and a while, but hey free is free. We do also tend to drop some money from time to time on newer comics as well.

Even though this promotion has been going on for a while and we've taken advantage of it for over the last three months, we've decided to start sharing with you what we come away with on our weekly trip to Coliseum of Comics.

Scene Missing

Okay so some weeks ago Star Wars - The Force Unleashed II was released as both a graphic novel and a traditional novel.

The graphic novel was actually the side story of how Boba Fett became involved and the troubles he went through to track and capture Captain Juno Eclipse.

Unfortunately with a whole graphic novel created to capture this misadventure, a whole fight sequence between Fett and rogue hero Starkiller which occurred on the Salvation in the regular novel was completely left out.

This was one of the best parts of the regular novel because it was one of those few times we actually get to see Boba Fett fight a Jedi, even if the encounter was brief.

When you read the regular novel and then the graphic novel (which is the best order to read this series in) it leaves you kinda empty inside, because you went in with the thoughts that we were actually going to get to see this and don't.

When all is said and done though if you're a fan of Boba Fett then you would enjoy the graphic novel just for the look into his life, and as far as the regular novel goes, well it wasn't all that bad, and we are left with an ending that leaves us open for The Force Unleashed III. - GJ

Star Wars - The Old Republic #5 (Comic)

In Star Wars - The Old Republic Issue 5 we continue our journey with Teneb Kel, the young Sith sent to find the traitor Exal Kressh, the Emperor's former apprentice.

Kel comes face to face with Kressh, and after a brief exchange of blows is bested. Kressh spares his life, but brings down the entire space colony to make a clean escape.

Kel and his partner/pet/slave Maggot manage to get off the colony before it comes crashing down on the nearby planet, but their ship is damaged and they are left to hunt for the colony wreckage to find the appropriate materials needed to make repairs.

Kel travels alone and leaves Maggot to start repair work with what they have so far. Injured and out in the desert, Kel has a vision; a vision that leaves him with a glimpse of his future, a future he now plans on changing.

To make matters worse for Kel, while making repairs Maggot receives a visitor in the form of a young Jedi Padawan, who only wants to talk with Maggot, but informs him that his Master has gone off into the desert in search of something that he felt in the force.

Don't miss the exciting conclusion to this arc next month when Star Wars - The Old Republic Issue 6 goes on sale December 1, 2010. - GJ
