View Full Version : dark horse inconsistencies

I've erecently been getting back into star wars comics. Teh Willie and Aayla stories being pretty good.

But on the other hand I read the Ki-Adi-Mundi comic and was very annoyed by how they switched artists from issue to issues and how they totally change things. Ki-Adi in the end of one has a mask on adn the next he doesnt. The foes he fights totally change too.

Are all Dark horse story arcs this inconsistent? Or is this just a bad example.

Are you talking about Outlander?
Because that arc is one of the most poorly contructed (art-wise) comics ever.

Most are much better with continuity.

Yeah I think it was. The asharett or something tusken jedi.

I'm glad to hear it.

I've been pretty happy with most of Dark Horse's SW stuff. Tales of the Jedi era stuff is well written and drawn. Recently, I picked up the Darth Maul TPB and was blown away images/icons/shocked.gif .

Some of the ongoing series and Star Wars Tales stuff is kind of campy, but it's still fun.

TPBs seem to be the best bang for my buck.

BTW, anybody know the difference between a TPB and a graphic novel?

A TPB is a collection of previously printed material in a large paperback form. They consist of the issues of a miniseries or a related story arc.

A graphic novel is a new, self contained story. Graphic novels do not typically contain reprinted material.
