Here is a little more info about what to expect from this massive comic book compellation according to Marvel.com.
It’s the return of the Jedi to Marvel in this opening volume. The rebels face a wealth of new perils. Luke goes back to Tatooine, Leia battles alone, Han and Chewie play the deadly Big Game and Darth Vader hunts for answers! Revisit all your old favorites and discover some new ones!
This Star Wars omnibus edition is still very new and is only available at few stores in Canada currently. Amazon has this edition for $88.20 plus free shipping and claims to be able to have it to me by February 6th. Though the deal is still a little sweeter at Chapters Canada, Chapters is estimating 3-5 weeks for delivery. I suspect though this book was just released, it is taking a little longer to physically hit Canadian shelves. Your other option is to order this book on Ebay for $189 USD. Ebay estimates this would be $234 Canadian. I guess everyone is looking to make a buck.
Reviews are not readily available yet. Very few Canadians have this edition right now as it was just released. There is one extremely long review about how great the entire Star Wars series is on Amazon.com. This part of the review sums up the reviewers thoughts on this new compilation for those of us who are not super fans.
This book comes very highly recommended. May the Force be with you, always!
This order qualifies for free shipping as it is over the $25 limit, though as I mentioned they are estimating a 3-5 week delivery range.
