3.0 von 5 Sternen A good idea gone wrong, 29. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I've never read a book with so much potential that was so dreadfully wasted. Having Luke cross over to the dark side was an interesting idea (and having the Emperor come back as a clone a somewhat less interesting idea), but the way the story is executed is somewhat flawed. The dialogue is very out-of-character (when would Han say "We've got a date with the dark side"), the characters even act out-of-character (Han thought they should have stayed home instead of trying to rescue Luke and Lando), and even the name of the new planet where the rebels are based CHANGES a third of the way through the story! Consistency, people! Luke gives into the Emperor's offer to join him way too quickly, then returns to the light side in the same manner (to paraphrase, Leia says "Please Luke, return to the light side! I'll let you play with my kids!" and Luke says "Okay" -- it's that bad.)
The artwork would've been good if the artist had used more than 2 colors to a page. It looks as if he drew his pencil work, then just picked a random water color and spilled it on the page.
It's not all bad, and is somewhat entertaining, but far from perfect. It is much better than any Star Wars story that Kevin Anderson has done (but then again, what Star Wars story isn't?) This was followed up by DARK EMPIRE II (where the Emperor returns...again...) and the 2 issue only EMPIRE'S END (from what I hear, the author wanted it to be longer than 2 issues, but the publisher wouldn't allow it. I wonder why?)

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Star Wars (Taschenbuch)
Mit das dunkle Imperium bzw. Dark Empire wurde bereits vor Jahren ein Grundstein für das heutige erweiterte (Star Wars) Universum gelegt, denn das dunkle Imperium bzw. Dark Empire ist ein Meilenstein und unter den Fans längst legendär.

Es handelt von der Widerauferstehung des Imperators mit Hilfe einer Reihe von Klonen. Luke wechselt darin auf die dunkle Seite und Leia muss ihr Erbe als Jedi akzeptieren. Coruscant wird vom Restimperium zurückerobert und schließlich zu einem Krisengebiet, als die verschiedenen Kriegsherrn nicht mehr miteinander sondern gegeneinander zu kämpfen beginnen. Gigantische Weltenvernichter (bekannt aus Rouge Squadron für Nintendo 64 und PC) verwüsten Mon Calamari und die Neue Republik liefert sich einen Todeskampf. Denn der Imperator ist von den Toten auferstanden und zieht im Tiefkern auf Byss erneut seine Truppen zusammen.

Diese Geschichte die wie der kühnste Traum eines Fans klingt ist längst ein fixer Bestandteil des erweiterten Universums. Sie ist bereits sehr häufig neu aufgelegt worden und besteht aus drei Teilen, die alle eines gemeinsam haben, die Widerauferstehung des Imperators und die Rückkehr der Jedi-Ritter.

Inhalt:
Die Handlung von Dark Empire I umfasst die Rückeroberung Coruscants durch eine Vereinigung imperialer Feldherren, die kurz nach ihrem Sieg übereinander herfallen, bis zur Wiedergeburt des Imperators, denn Luke Skywalker der in der Schlacht um Coruscant in imperiale Gefangenschaft geraten ist, wird auf die ehemalige Thronwelt des Imperators gebracht. Dort begegnet er nun seinem Schicksal und der geklonte Imperator ernennt ihn zu seinem Schüler. In einer galaxisweiten Schlacht wird beinahe die gesamte neue Republik von imperialen Truppen überrannt, doch Luke plant bereits seinen neuen Meister zu vernichten. Insgeheim manipuliert er die Befehle der imperialen Truppen, um die Zerstörungen einzugrenzen. Doch Leia zweifelt am Erfolg von Lukes Verschwörung und begibt sich mit ihrem Mann Han und einigen von dessen alten Schmugglerfreunden auf Byss. Dabei haben sie ihre Rechnung jedoch ohne den Imperator gemacht, denn der weiß mehr über Lukes Pläne, als dieser annimmt...

Zum Inhalt
Ein wiedergeborener Imperator, das Imperium wieder auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Macht, genau diese Thematik hat das erweiterte Universum für lange Zeit geprägt und stellt gleichzeitig einen Bruch mit der Filmsaga dar, denn der Imperator, der in Rückkehr der Jedi-Ritter" endgültig besiegt wurde, kehrt wieder und das sogar mehrmals. Dank der Klontechnologie ist er einfach nicht tot zu kriegen und verführt Luke schließlich sogar auf die dunkle Seite. Das führt dazu, dass Dark Empire wirklich an das Wunschszenario eines Fans erinnert, der seine geliebte Filmsaga einfach nicht aufgeben möchte und deshalb das Böse immer wieder belebt. Dieser Eindruck wirkt bis heute nach, denn nach Timothy Zahns Thrawn-Trilogie erweckte die Dark-Empire-Trilogie das Star-Wars-Universum erneut zum Leben.

Das dunkle Imperium gehört zu den eindrucksvollsten Werken des erweiterten Universums, doch liegt dies nicht allein an der einmaligen und bis heute oft kopierten Story, sondern zum Teil auch am etwas irritierenden Zeichenstil, mit dem man sich vielleicht nicht so leicht anfreunden kann.

Fazit: Der sehr eigenwillige Zeichenstil stört nichts an der packenden Geschichte und für Fans ist dieser Comic ohnehin ein Muss.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good for the sake of the Story, 10. Juni 2003
Dark Empire is continuing the story of the New Republic right after the defeat of Grand Admiral Thrawn, and the continuance of the story is the only thing that makes it good.
In short: Luke and Lando down the Liberator on imperium-controlled Coruscant. Han and Co ride Lando out, but Luke stays to meet a great evil force... the resurrected Emperor.
The Emperor did not die at Endor because he is able to transfer his life energy to other people, mostly clones. He has drawn the Dark imperial forces together to fight the now once-again Rebellion, albeit incoherently.
He lashes out at Mon Calamari with World Devastators and no real goal other than to make them hurt; these giant machines consume anything, break it apart at atomic level and rebuild it to material that then feeds the interior production facility to produce war machines. Then he draws together his giant fleet to fight against the Rebellion's collective force that makes a stand at the emperor's new hiding place.
Meanwhile, Luke has gone over to the Dark Side to learn under the Emperor, he thinks he can destroy the Dark Side from within.
His whole Dark-Side-Light-Side-again-then-Dark-Side-once-more-then-finally-Light-Side-again-with-Leias-help thing is a bit fast-paced and without real emotion and drama. It seems the story for 3 paperbacks was squeezed into one. Go figure.
All in all only recommendable if you need to know what happened, although a good timeline might do the same job.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not a rehash, but thats a good thing, 24. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This comic has gotten some of the worst reviews by fans because it trys to put forth origional Star Wars material in the form of art. Reading this comic was the closest thing I got to watching a Star Wars movie for the first time from one of the masses of Star Wars rehashes. It has a very artistic use of color for mood and brilliant use of still pictures for vast action scenes. If you don't think this comic is superior to all other Star Wars Comics, take a look at some of the other ones, they are terrible! Most of the rehashed Star Wars products are tame and uninteresting. Aside from the tactics of Thrawn there are very few cool ideas added to the Star Wars novels by the rehashes. However Dark Empire intoduces a good dozen interesting extentions of Sci-Fi Ideas that Star Wars began: Super-Weapons, New Starfighters, Cool Planets, Detailed Urban Warfare on Coruscant... And give it up, World Devestators are cooler than the Sun Crusher, Droid TIE's are cooler than any other new fighter save the ones from Computer Games, the rendition of Nar Shadda is cooler than any other non-trilogy location visualy as well as story. Dark empire might be might take risks by using origional color schemes and introducing radical stroy twists to the Star Wars Universe, but is better than reading about the Jedi Twins getting in and out of trouble. Wanna read a real Graphic Novel... Try The Watchmen or Dark Night Returns

3.0 von 5 Sternen The Further Adventures of Luke Skywalker, 13. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Star Wars: Dark Empire first came out a few years before the new Star Wars craze of the nineties. This collection of the six issue miniseries by Dark Horse Comics is really one of the better examples for comics based on films.
A few years after defeating the Empire a new threat arises. Huge war machines devastate planets and the heroes soon find out, that the Emperor somehow managed to survive his apparent death on the second Death Star.
The group is split up, with Luke facing the new emperor and his own dark inner self and Han and Leia fleeing, looking for help.
The action in this book is grand and has the epic cinematic feel one expects from Star Wars. It is expertly illustrated and has reasonably sound plot and dialogue (although some devices, like the emperor's return seem very strained).
On the whole this is about as good a comic book as one might hope to expect, unfortunately even the best book based on he Star Wars series of films won't stand a comparison to the films themselves, because the two media (film and comic) are simply too different, and the film's engrossing special effects come across relatively bland on paper. (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

3.0 von 5 Sternen Anakin Skywalker would be rolling in his grave, 15. Oktober 1999
Well, rolling in the place where he was burned. But you know what I mean.
First off, he went through *hell* to save the galaxy from the dark side, to save Luke from the dark side, even though he probably doubted he could save *himself* from the dark side...
And Luke just goes and mucks the galaxy up again. D'oh!
Also, bringing Palpatine back was a *BAD* idea. Couldn't Luke turn to the Dark Side on his own, or is he so wussy he has to be led around by somebody--anybody? I mean, besides the fact that the whole cloning thing was totally unbelievable.
The only good thing to come out of this were the superb fanfics written by Brendan Wahlberg (available on theforce.net).
The story itself wasn't so bad (but spare me from Bodo Baas's poetry!) and the artwork was gorgeous, although the characters were very strange-looking. I mean, the artist made Luke and Leia *tall* for heaven's sake. That's just *wrong*. And I loved Han pulling a blaster on Luke.
All in all, okay if you want to read something that reads like mediocre fanfiction, but it does have awesome art.
At least it's better than Dark Empire II and Empire's End.

1.0 von 5 Sternen WHAT A PITY !, 4. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This was a horrible, horrible comic. Why isn't there a 0-star rating ? The story was based on a good idea, I must admit, but the way Veitch & Kennedy made the idea materialise was horrible. Absolutely no dialog, nothing was added to the personalities who were flat and unimaginative, nothing was added to the Star Wars universe (no heroes, no technology except the World Devastators who turned up to be ridiculously idiotic at the end), it was just a cheap copy of the movie Star Wars Trilogy. And the sketches were even worse, all heroes were unrecognisable, with the possible exception of the Emperor (after all who could mistake all these wrinkles under a dark hood?)
All in all a hollow story. A pity, because the idea was really good, and could have made a great comic, even a very good book!
Still, if you are a Star Wars fan, if you love Kevin Anderson and, even better, Timothy Zahn's books and especially the neat way Zahn tied everything up in Vision of the Future, then you must read Dark Empire, if only to know what the other writers are talking about.

5.0 von 5 Sternen few bad things, but otherwise GREAT!!, 11. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
this was the very first star wars comic i have ever read, and i look forward to getting the sequels. yeah sure, the pictures weren't the best i've seen and the color was different(still interesting), it gave a lot of information on what happened between "the last command" by zahn and "jedi search" by anderson. being one who absolutely loves star wars and reads every book (and comic) that looks interesting to me, when i read the books they would sometimes talk about luke's time on the dark side, and i would be totally lost. when i saw this comic book in a book store, i quickly flipped though it, liked it and then bought it. needless to say, i am no longer lost when reading star wars. besides the fact that most people doing these reviews didn't like it, I DID, i loved it, and so did some other people. just remember if you DO get and really don't like it, amazon.com lets you return a book if your not fully satisfied. thanks

5.0 von 5 Sternen My Favorite Of All, 6. März 1998
Von 
in this enstallment we find our usual characters, Luke, Leia, Han & gang in quite an akward situation. in a plan to overthrow the empire and his greatest foe [yes, the emporer returns], Luke Skywalker joins the dark side, but soon finds he has lost control. all in all leia and han make an attempt to save him, but fail the first time, so at the last minute leia returns to convince him to rejoin to the alliance. this the first post Star Wars story i ever, and happens to be my favorite. it's a wonderful twist on Luke Skywalker's character, and i am almost reminded of the storyline of AKIRA, in the fact that someone previously good so can develop into something so evil. the style is very macabre, and the artwork definetly fits the story. i am a very hard consumer to please, so you'll have to trust me that this is an essential read for all SW fans. and don't forget the sequel: Dark Empire II

5.0 von 5 Sternen Audiocassette highly recommended for kids, 26. November 1999
Von 
J. Rand (Los Angeles) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
My son acquired the audiocassette versions of Dark Empire and Dark Empire II when he was six years old, and after 2 1/2 years he still hasn't tired of them. What higher recommendation is there? The cast performance is energetic and faithful to the original film characters, the sound effects are first rate, and the whole production is very well paced. The tapes are visceral in the way that the films were at their best. As an adult, I roll my eyes a bit at the "Will-Luke-go-over-to-the-Dark-Side" cliffhangers and the repeated demise and reappearances of the Emperor. But it's no more silly than the Saturday morning serials that inspired the series, and the kids don't care a bit!
The bottom line: it will keep the kids entertained for hours...or maybe even years.
