    1. You accept the fact that these comics are non-canonical, it's harder to accept the continuity errors inherent in the comics themselves; Luke's powers wildly fluctuating from issue to issue being the most egregious example.


    2. In this third of the series of Marvel Star Wars comics collected in omnibus editions by Dark Horse Comics, there are two major areas that make this a volume well-worth reading. These two elements are better artwork and Lumiya. In the comics collected in Star Wars Omnibus: A Long Time Ago Volume Three, the improved artwork that began getting better and better around the time of Marvel's adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back, managed to improve even more, and maintain this high standard. Of course [...]


    3. 5 starsNice to read more stories from Star Wars. Nice to see Leia, Luke, Chewbacca, Lando, and everyone else again. Interesting that Shira Brie was an Imperial agent. Wonder if she will ever come back. Hope they will be able to rescue Han soon. Which they will. Haha. Can't wait to read more Star Wars comics!!!


    4. 50. The Crimson ForeverThis story got off to a little bit of a weird/slow start, but quickly picked up. I enjoyed the new characters and the humor that was involved, especially chewy being treated like a baby. The art seemed to be average for that time period with solid detail. My rating for this issue is 4.4 out of 5.0.51. Resurrection of EvilWow, something more powerful then the deathstar who would ever think of such a thing. There is not much to this except vader using the force to walk some [...]


    5. This is the third of five volumes that collect the old Star Wars comics from the 1970's and 1980's, originally released as monthly serials by Marvel. If you've read the other volumes (or if you remember the original comics) you know what to expect: episodic story lines with larger-than-life events, garish artwork, lots of action and plots that sometimes violate the Star Wars canon.Nonetheless, I liked this third omnibus a bit more than the last. It seems to me that the writers tried to keep most [...]


    6. The art for Marvel 50-67 is better than a lot of the art before this. Walter Simonson did most (if not all) of the penciling for these, and his work is very good.There is a bit less of "previous issue" notes, but there are still enough to be annoying. If I don't know a part of the past story, that's my fault.50. The Crimson Forever- Good artwork and colours-Crimson Forever is a plague that begins by turning the eyes red and then the entire body (a death sentence). It's caused by two jewels are s [...]


    7. I haven't read these stories since I first purchased them in my pre teens. I still have close to a complete set, but haven't picked them up due to there being so many novels that have come out over the last 20 years. My favorite stories were the ones that came out right before and after Return of the Jedi, which will be in the next two volumes, but a few important characters are introduced here. That being said, this collection is one of the best things that I've ever seen put out. The Omnibus i [...]


    8. The comics were from 50 to 67 I think. The ones in the 50's were terrible. The story line was beyond bad. It got much better around 59 where the story was much better. A big problem was issue 64 did not follow after 63 when it came to the actual time line. In 64 they had Luke going on a mission with 2 others, but in issue 63 they still have Luke as a traitor So that is a problem. It gets back on track though. I think I am at the half way point in the overall series though.


    9. I first read all of these many, many years ago when they were first serialized in monthly comic form and re-reading them now brings back a lovely feeling of nostalgia. The stories are great, with a sense of fantasy & whimsy that mostly fits in very well with the SW universe. They're obviously 80's books, but they've aged well and the artwork is mostly excellent and can hold it's own against many more modern titles. I've really enjoyed this trip down memory lane to a galaxy far, far away!


    10. I was happy with each story that I read which explained a lot of what was going on in between Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi. I like how also it shows the growth of Luke Skywalker that you don't get to see as much where he seems to go from a young imature youth in the New Hope to still imature in Empire Strikes Back to Cool and collected in Return of the Jedi.


    11. More nostalgia! The stories set right after ESB make the most sense. After all, the whole Rebellion can't be put on hold for Han Solo. Still, there is a sense of filler as time after time after time our heroes get diverted from their quest. Despite that, there are strong stories and solid art to be had.



    12. The comic book writers of the time must have watched a lot of Star Trek because pretty much every story arc is Luke, Leia and/or Lando ending up stranded or hiding on an unknown planet where they get in some hijinks with the natives.


    13. Some strange stuff. I didn't realize Marvel had so many comics between Episodes IV and V. It was clear that they had no idea what was coming in Episode VI, they were still pushing the Luke/Leia romance/jealously angle pretty hard.


    14. Took several tries to get into this volume. But it's been a fun trope through the 1980's movie spin-off comic world.


    15. Nostalgia value is still high, but things really started getting trippy or more like old Star Trek episodes. Still, waiting for Vol. 4.



    16. Fun read, especially as a 'what if' for Star Wars. The stories and artwork isn't top notch but it's fascinating to see what other writers did with the characters before the modern Expanded Universe.


    17. Best one of the classic Star Wars collections so far. Stories feel a lot more like part of the universe and some great art from Simonson and Infantino.
