Stormtroopers Looking Cool: Star Wars #21

I bought this issue solely for the cover: It looks just like a vintage propaganda poster.  The imagery of the Stormtroopers as strong defenders of the Empire, looking implacable is just breathtaking.  This cover is just plain beautiful.  There is also some really neat imagery: The story itself comes from the perspective of a Stormtrooper. … Continue reading Stormtroopers Looking Cool: Star Wars #21
