Star Wars: The Stark Hyperspace War by John Ostrander

This comic is set before the Clone Wars and gives a short view of the Stark Hyperspace War through the eyes of the Jedi masters, telling the story to a young Jedi. I think I've read this one previously, so either I borrowed it from a library or it's included in one of the Star Wars omnibuses. Either way, it's a good addition to any Star Wars collection. Lots of action and familiar characters as well as introducing some minor actors. Plenty of humor and not too much tragedy, which is what I like in a Star Wars comic!

This one could go either in juvenile or young adult, but since we have our omnibuses in young adult this one will probably go up there. I hope the library binding is as sturdy as it looks...we shall see. If you want to add some shorter stories or collections, rather than the giant omnibuses or huge series, this is a good start.

Verdict: Star Wars boy and his friends will be happy
