Have vaguely toyed with the idea of getting these two but don't think I ever will.

Then there's the Dunk & Egg ones of course

I have both Dunk & Egg graphic novels and they're worth every penny.

 Are they newly reprinted versions?  When I looked last year they were rare out of print and very expensive IIRC. I managed to "acquire" the prose editions at no cost, all  I had to do was convert from PDF to eBook.

I bought both off of Amazon for about under £10 each. They were paperback editions. They're quite new, only been out for about a year or so, I think.

I did, comics. Read them and bought them too. All kinds. From the French Rahan (see below) to DC Comics. I moved though around a bit so it was difficult to keep dragging my stuff around. They had to go. I still have some old French comics actually somewhere. Sentimental value and all.

Now I have just the Dunk and Egg ones and only because I could buy them in digital format. Nice ones though.

KM, I thought these graphic Dunk and Egg are the first edition. The original stories were each printed before in anthologies or even separate in extremely expensive collector's edition (over $100 on eBay). I don't think there were graphic novels though.

I have these two under plastic (never read):



And the Willow comics. All of them. Shut the fuck up.

Also, I had THE Star Wars comic as a kid. The one worth three to five grand. Congrats, mom. You're a cliche.

I probably put 2 and 2 together to make 5 there somewhere, but yes the only way to get the Dunk & Egg stuff this time last year was to pay silly $$$ / £££  or go down the less than strictly legal route.  The  D&E graphic novels are quite reasonably priced now. I wouldn't like to read them on a small eReader screen though (my little Kobo!), but I guess they are available in PDF format for a PC or laptop?

 KM, I hated reading them on Kindle. I used their Amazon online interface and read them on my Mac. My Kindle is black and white and color is half the pleasure of reading these Dunk and Egg comics.

Looks like I will be reading this! freakout www.blastr.com/2015-3-16/heres-our-first-look-marvels-star-wars-force-awakens-prequel-comic . They are publishing the (prequel) comics there just like they did for Ep IV when no one knew of Star Wars.

EDIT: Wanted to see if I can actually post a pic!
