This is a nice, illustrated description of Star War characters. It covers aliens, droids and humans from the films, comics, books, cartoons, and TV series. Yes, even the Ewok Adventure. This book includes drawings and black and white photos.
This is an excellent source of information on almost all of the characters in the SW Universe. I believe it goes all the way up the the Jedi Academy Trilogy in characters. It has a nice original drawing of each character. I liked the basic stats and the detailed description of the characters life. An excellent SW reference material!
I really wish that it had color photos and drawings. I'm also bummed out that it is already out of date as well. Some of the characters are even dead and listed as alive in the book. It's almost an impossible task to keep up with the SW Universe! I also felt that some of the drawings were off from the descriptions in the novels, but if it was approved, it must be close enough!
Noghri from the Zahn novels. Their faces look like rotted pumpkins!
