Teranishi delivers a style that is a delightful mixture of photo-realism with enough of his own style to make it highly interesting. Not only do the characters from the movies look amazingly like the actors, but the characters that exist in novel form appear as described. Ok first and formost-what are you playing at Chuckry? Since when did Kam Solusar look like the exact spitting image of Bruce Willis- not impressive.

Ever since I found myself getting involved in the "Star Wars" Expanded Universe, I've come to appreciate just how much the tie-in books have added depth and richness to George Lucas's six-film creation. "Union" contributes to that with its tale of the events leading up to the televised wedding of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and former Emperor's Hand Mara Jade. Michael A. Stackpole's nicely written dramedy has ex-Imperials plotting to disrupt the wedding; Luke and Mara having dark pre-nuptial nightmares; and humorous scenes such as Mara trying on hilariously bad wedding dresses, Luke's bachelor party at the Red Rancor Bar that turns into a brawl between the Rebel Alliance heroes and the party-crashing ex-Imperials, and comedic banter between Rogue Squadron members Janson and Hobbie. The cover art is beautifully rendered by Terese Nielsen. I have no complaints about the artwork inside; granted, it's not perfect, but I've seen worse and at least Luke and Mara now look their respective ages. I also noted with amusement that Kam Solusar bears a more-than-passing resemblance to Bruce Willis. The only problem I have - and it's only a mild one - is that, in Mike Stackpole's hands, Mara Jade doesn't quite come off sounding like how she does when Timothy Zahn writes her dialogue, but I guess you have to expect that when a writer works with a character that another writer has created.

Personally, I would have liked that Luke and Mara's wedding be in a novel form, but having a comic like "Union" is, does have its pluses. For one, we actually could see the characters and what they were doing. The dialogue at times can be confusing (like the bar room brawl and the people plotting against the wedding), but overall it makes sense and Michael Stackpole does a good job at it. The biggest problem I have with the comic was the picturing and drawings. Certainly the known characters we know from the movie trilogy look like they should look like (though at times, I think Luke and Han could have been drawn better), but I felt that the drawings weren't as good as some of the past comics, like the comic adaption of the Timothy Zahn book, "Dark Force Rising", which I feel is the best comic version out of almost all of them. With the drawings, Mara herself could have looked much better, which brings back the comic of DFR, which I felt had Mara down to the hilt of the way that Zahn wrote her. Besides that, "Union" was a excellent entry into the Star Wars universe with the marriage of probably the most famous person from the original movie trilogy, Luke Skywalker (duh!). It does have some problems (which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars), but it is a refresher before the New Jedi Order book series, which I hate overall (the exception being the birth of Luke and Mara's son Ben).

The cramming of an action plotline in there (especially since Mara didn't have anything to do with it) was a bit much. I think would have been better to just go fluffy, because the fluffy, slice-of-life stuff (the women pounding Champion Squadron, the division of men vs. women, Han's remark that he hasn't been right since he met Leia) was very nicely done. For the most part, the art was great, except for the last big shot of Luke and Mara that just looks sort of unfinished around the eyes. Worth having for the collection, and now that it's available on Kindle I can ditch my paper copies.

It’s a good story with a good message. I love the classic, now non-canon stories and have collected all of them for over 20 years. I am saddened by Disney destroying the universe that I grew up loving.

Well, after Vision of the Future, I of course wanted to read about the wedding and this comic provided it for me. The plot is superficial, but I liked a lot of the other things. Like the dress fitting (especially the retro imperial design), the women in the Spa (and what came directly after) and of course some of the action. I agree with some other reviewers that Mara didn't look as good as she did in By the Emperor's hand (there she was a real tough bitch, and I mean this in a positive way), just a bit too much of a nice girl even if she did put her light saber to good use. Most of the characters were drawn well, especially Han, but whoever decided to do Luke's hair on the wedding day was probably suffering from some kind of mental sickness. Really! And Mara's dress was just a bit too traditional (why not another colour than white?). But on the whole I liked reading it, and laughed a lot too! If you like Mara (and Luke of course), then you should certainly pick it up. If only to realise that these characters do normal things as well, not just fighting and whacking around.

The story clearly does not take itself seriously. A couple really corny jokes, low-quality villains, and some bad background art fill this book. A disappointment really, because I've read several other Stackpole novels, and I liked them. Actually, most of the art seemed sub-standard. Oh, and the binding detached within a month. I didn't stress it at all. In summary: It's a Star Wars story, but you can live without it.

Enjoyable comic and they made the best couple. I love wedding and this was one showed that things go wrong but in the end you pull it off.
This is without a doubt my favorite Star Wars comic. If you are a Star Wars fan, this is worth adding to your collection :)
