    I just found out about this site that releases Star Wars anthology comics once a month. Apparently, the site is new, as there is only one comic released so far. The title of the first comic - Two Tubes, and yes, it's about the best Rogue One character (after Bor Gullet)! It's a very quick read, but without spoiling anything, I think it's very, very good, and the art is excellent, far better than in some of the MARVEL series.

    As someone that loves Star Wars comics, I can't complain about an extra (mini) issue a month.

    And of course it's not canon nor Legends, but as long as the art and stories are good I don't care ;)

    Umm. Wow. I was not expecting much, but this was very good.

    Marvel should snatch this team up and have them do anthology series. That first issue was certainly better than some of the official stuff put out in the last couple years.

    I'd be interested if it were official and wasn't just fan made. Too much official works being released right now to worry about fan made stuff as well.

    It's six pages once a month, and free for now. I certainly would argue it's worth your time.

    That's some quality art, if I hadn't been told it was fan-made I totally would have believed it was from an official comic.

    Wow. That's very well-made. I second the idea of Marvel picking these guys up.

    I wasn't around the boards when this was announced, but these are awesome. Plus the art isn't copied, like some of the official stuff -- the artist is clearly doing his own thing, making his own details.

    I highly value that in every comic. Although to be fair, I imagine it is very useful, and even necessary to trace over photos for certain panels. The problem is when the tracing is blatantly obvious like in certain official comic issues...

    These are great! That one about Two-Tubes in particular was intense as hell.

    vncredleader These look like the new equivalent of Star Wars tales.

    Another excellent comic. Also interesting in the way in sort of contrasts with the first one.

    "Two Tubes" is in the desert, is an action story, has no human faces apart from Saw, and has mercy rewarded with ruthlessness.

    "The Lady From Chandrilla" has a city-scape enviornment, is about intrigue rather than action, has human faces (and several alien ones), and ends on a message about simple acts of kindness.

    Also I noticed a HWK-290 in the background.

    Another great issue. And the Devaronian giving Figrin a pat on the back makes me think someone may be a fan of Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina.

    Also the blaster Han used to shoot Greedo must have been pretty powerful, it's now sunset and Greedo's corpse is STILL smoking. Maybe it's powered by the burning hatred the "Han shot first" controversy generated. ;)

    Yep, those are certainly well-crafted short comics. I wonder just how well known they are!

    Haven't been paying attention for a couple months, but the recent 3 comics released were impeccable. There's some serious talent at work here.

    That was the best use of IG-88 I've ever read. Bar none. Super kudos to these writers.

    They need to get whoever makes these comics (unofficial they may be) on the star wars show to really get the word out on their talent.

    Wait a minute, I've just had a look at the schedule for next week's star wars show and the guest spot is already taken by a quarterback who sometimes likes to quote star wars in the locker room- my bad.

    Wow, these comics are awesome! I love the stories, the art and the little nice things like including Garm Bel Iblis in the story. I also liked to see the senate shortly before Episode IV. :deathstar:
