Tag and Bink are Dead
Tag and Bink are the main characters in a series of comic books spoofing Star Wars. Tag is from the planet Corellia and Bink is from Alderaan. The two first meet when they are found to have Force potential. The comics illustrate how these two Jedi in training haphazardly cause all the pivotal events in the Star Wars universe. Like other Star Wars comics, Tag and Bink is published by Dark Horse Comics.

    of all the star wars parodies, this might be the best one. i’ve read it a dozen times and a still laugh at the jokes.

    every silly things in star wars ep. 1-2-3 is explained in that book.

    LOVE Rosencrantz and Gilderstern are Dead stories. This comic was hilariously well done. Loved it. It always reminds me of Agrajag from Hitchhiker’s Guide, who Arthur Dent kept accidentally killing.

    Now, if someone could take this idea to the Doctor Who universe, about some guy who’s always inadvertently following around the doctor…

    I was searching for this for a while before finding it on the shelf of my local Borders. I loved every issue in the collection. The way they put them into the background was ingenious and worked extremely well. I have easily recommended this to Star Wars fans of all kinds and even to Non-Fans. Can’t wait to hear what you guys have to say about this TPB. As it says on the cover, Tag & Bink Were Here.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
