Teen Book Review: The Empire Strikes Back

Title: Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Author: Archie Goodwin

Rate It: 5 stars

Review It: I really feel that this book deserves 5 out of 5 stars because it is in my opinion the greatest work of science fiction fantasy out there. What makes this book really great is that it tells the story of Star Wars episode 5 completely in comic book form. Everything from the dialog to the action sequences is spot on to the movie, with slight variations in between. Even if you have seen the film this is still a great graphic novel to be enjoyed by anyone who likes reading comic books. I also enjoyed the fact that Marvel comics took on the task of putting together such a project along with seeing “Stan Lee presents” printed on the book. This particular comic is also a great collection piece to own not because it is worth a lot but because it was printed in 1980. George Lucas’s engaging storyline with action packed adventure along with the vintage aspect make this a great comic to read or to own.
