Star Wars Omnibus: X-Wing Rogue Squadron, Volume 3 - Michael A. Stackpole, John Nadeau, Steve Crespo Significantly better than the previous two volumes. The storyline here (and it really is one big, overarching storyline) is much more cohesive and, frankly, better told than any of the previous comic storylines. And it felt a lot more like the Rogue Squadron books, which, let's be honest, was exactly what I was looking for. It feels like the creative team had finally found their way, just in time for the series to end. Sigh. The art was, overall, slightly improved over what came before, though there are still... questionable panels, and the likeness to established characters is vague at best. The dogfights look great, though. And so do the painted covers, which leads to my one real complaint about these omnibus editions: they leave out most of the covers, which is almost a crime when they look this good.
