Tag and Bink

Tag and Bink are two Rosencrantz and Guildenstern-like characters that appear in Dark Horse's Star Wars comics.
Tag and Bink Are Dead # 1-2
This has to the titular duo go through the events of the original Star Wars trilogy. Tag and Bink are two rebels that were on Tantive IV when the Devastator attacked it. The two beat up two stormtroopers and stole their uniforms. They ended up on the Death Star. After a failed attempt to go to Alderaan (the Death Star blew it up), they accidentally returned to the Death Star and Darth Vader makes them the pilots of two TIE fighters.  During the climactic battle of Star Wars Episode 4, Tag and Bink accidentally really get Vader killed. Tag and Bink stole an Imperial landing craft to save themselves when the Death Star was blown up. After meeting people such as Lando Calrissian, Emperor Palpatine and Boba Fett, they found themselves on the second Death Star and were killed when the Rebels blew it up. They live on as Force ghosts in purgatory.
Tag and Bink: Revenge of the Clone Menace
This is a prequel to the original and has Tag and Bink go through the events of the Star Wars prequels. Tag and Bink tried (and failed) to become Jedis under the tutorship of Yoda. At a restraunt, they give Anakin Skywalker tips on how to deal with his relationship problems with Padmé. They went back to the Jedi Temple (which took them several years) and discovered Darth Vader and his stormtroopers killed all the other Jedis. Due to their past association with him and their promise to give being Jedis, Vader spares them. Tag and Bink Are Dead takes palce 20 years later.
