Star Wars #56
Outside of a bar in Barnahof, The Outer Rim stands Stormtroopers ready to storm the bar. As they enter, they demand to see everyone's identification. A Stormtrooper holds up a Hologram, asking if they had seen three humans. Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia. In a short answer, the reply was no.
Needless to say, they (StormTroopers)were not convinced as the table holds more than two people and more than two glass at the table. She blows them off saying she is simply thirsty, and the gentlemen that she sits with is Nuxan, they have a smell horrible. Satisfied with her answer they leave. The three wanted fugitive get up from underneath the table to complete their talks of business. As the three have lost contact with the rebellion, Sana agrees to transport them.
As they carry on Luke looks at the window as they navigate through the Dene Gois Cluster. Luke questions what this place is, As Artoo Detoo and a legless See-Threepio enter the room offering an explanation. A Star Destroyer comes out of nowhere appearing to hover over Sana's ship. The crew discusses what they can do in fear they may be discovered. The plan to is to take the escape pod to the nearby Planet Hubin, it is an isolated planet. As the pod lands on the Planet, it appears to be nightfall, with lightning and heavy rains. As they leave the pod, they are greeted with what appears to be a cross breed between a bear and werewolf.
As the team runs the monster catches up with them, lights appear from behind the monster and decide to takes off. Three heavily armed men stand in front of the fugitives. They ask why are you in Hubin, the short answer is they are stranded. The leader welcomed them. Later, We see another droid in a lab mixing what appears to be chemicals. He brings the mix to the surface where Princess Leia, Luke, and Han are sitting at a table overlooking a paradise.
Before I begin, I have a confession, this was the first Star Wars book I have ever read. I am a fan of the movies, however never read a Star Wars comic book. I didn’t read back to the previous issue either, I just open this one up and read. This is important to say because I assumed I would be lost, not sure what is going on so. However, I was able to keep up without knowing a good amount of previous issues. I really enjoyed this book, the art is stellar, I enjoyed the banter between Sana and Han. I read the book in everyone’s voices, the writers clearly have done their research to make this an authentic Star Wars Book.
Writing and story I gave a sold 9, I really enjoyed the fact I wouldn't be super lost, the storyline appears fun and reads as it would be in a Star Wars Movie. The Art was beautiful, my only complaint was some of the faces weren't the style that I like, but realistic to their characters just at times appeared more cartoonish. Which nothing wrong with that at all, just not my preference. It's fun, action-packed, colored beautifully book that I will continue to read regardless if I continue reviewing or not.
