Reading the first arc of Invasion is like strolling down memory lane…only now you can see the Yuuzhan Vong as they wage war with their living biots, you can see the sadness and fear in their victims eyes, and the heroes no longer have mysterious faces left up to your imagination. With good art, a good story, and a good cast, Invasion is an entertaining series that does well in the old stomping grounds of the New Jedi Order.
