Sorry if I came down a little hard on you lol, wasn't meant to sound that way
See, I have been a pro-DHC person for so long, and I get on well with the artists, writers and people who run DHC, that I like to know when they are going wrong in other people's views. As always, art is a matter of opinion, but do you get the more recent comics? Republic, Empire and Tales have now ended, but new series such as Knights of the Old Republic, Rebellion and soon to be released Legacy are going to make excellent replacements - with artists like Jan Duursema, Doug Wheatley, Brian Ching and Brandon Badeaux all fronting the new series and more. I think their art is some of the best in the comics industry, DHC have been amassing creative talent for quite some time, and the current crop of SW comic artists are some of the best IMHO. Well, it's down to personal opinion, so if they don't impress you, I guess I can't convince you lol
The EU does have a lot of catching up like you said in terms of great characters, and sometimes does lack that special quality, but I think there have been some good ones along the way - Aayla Secura was well developed in the comics before GL took a fancy and stuck her in Ep II, and Quinlan Vos gets a mention in Ep III! And there is a character called Sunber in the new Empire series who looks to be set for great things in Rebellion, especially with his link to a certain farmboy - I won't spoil it
I know what you mean about TV series, there is always a potential for it to be a stinker, but tho Ep I was a let down for many people (it wasn't so much for me, I understood nothing can replace 20 or so years of love for a film made in the late 70s, plus TPM was aimed at kids/families like ANH was in the 70s, and shouldn't be judged via "adult" standards), I think a certain standard has been kept by LF, and I see it continuing in the series. I would love to see a "Band of Brothers" style episode based around clones, now that would be cool. We'll see, we have at least 2 years till we know lol.
I can't remember where the avatar was from lol, but yeah, if it were exact it would be a little different
This is my sig image btw - I add in here since the sig seems to have images/links switched off
Bounty Hunter -
FON - I heard that rumour too, that Daniel Logan will reprise his role as Boba Fett, and Boba would be the lead through the series, we'll have to see if that sticks or not. I did hear that C-3P0 and R2-D2 will be on for appearances, though Kenny Baker doesn't seem to have been asked to appear according to the Lancashire Evening Post (the local paper near Preston where Kenny lives)
