I’ve enjoyed this series so far, and this issue has to be my favourite. Splitting between four different threads we gradually are getting to see them drawn together.
First with Leia – out at the ruins of Alderaan, she meets someone on a large ship and gets an unpleasant surprise meeting someone from her home planet.
We also get Han in an epic battle against Boba Fett which is full of speed and a change of pace from the other arcs.
We see what Vader is up to rooting out trouble in his own ranks and his search for Skywalker.
Talking of Skywalker – he and Wedge are on board the Superstar Destroyer…
In all this is an excellent comic and a great read for those who have only seen the movies and don’t want to get bogged down in the Extended Universe.
The art is excellent – making Vader look menacing and the other very close to the actors who played them!
