William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back, Star Wars part the Fifth by Ian Doescher

In which Luke findeth out that Darth Vader is his father. And the young Skywalker is still prone to lamentation and monologues.

Ian Doescher’s sophomore effort is definitely an improvement on Verily, a New Hope, although not yet as polished as his later endeavours.

I liked that he brought some humanity to the Wampa and Exogor. Or rather, some animal kingdom behaviour. Instead of portraying them as murderous beasts, they’re really just hungry creatures looking for food. We all can sympathize with that, can’t we?
