Some of My Friends Read Comics 069 – Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire


In the mid-90s, Lucasfilm decided to fill in the Star Wars gap between episodes 5 and 6 with Shadows of the Empire.

There was a game, a book, a soundtrack, a junior novelization… pretty much everything except a movie.

There was even a comic book! And we read it! All 6 issues!

What’s gonna happen?

Is Luke gonna die?! (no) Is Boba Fett gonna die?! (no) Is Han gonna get delivered to Jabba?! (yeah) Is Leia going to be the victim of sexual assault?! (omg, what the hell did we just read).

Some of My Friends Read Comics 017 – Star Wars: Dark Empire

A long time ago in a continuity far, far away… Dark Horse Comics made a TON of Star Wars comics, more than 500 of ’em. And they kicked the whole thing off with Dark Empire, a story where Luke turns to the Dark Side.

Apparently, this thing was so important that all the Star Wars novels from the 90’s kept referencing it, so we decided to read it and see what all the fuss was about. Join us as we ask the questions: Is Leia a trucker? Is the Emperor a vampire? Is Boba Fett good at anything?

Marvel owns the rights to all these comics now, what with Disney owning everything in the world these days, so if you’d like to read them just head on over to Marvel Unlimited.
