Star Wars 72: Rebels and Rogues Part V
This issue is one of the last of this run. The story has been building up to to the Rebels finding and establishing Echo Base on Hoth. Considering there are only three issues after this one, the series seems hell-bent on waiting until the last second to actually get there. The main group of Rebels has spent five painfully slow issues pretty much getting nowhere. It’s hard to imaging that this arc will get to where it needs to go as the clock ticks down. In all three separate storylines, the characters have stayed in the same locations and are still dealing with the same problems they have had to deal with the whole time. The worst part is that all the characters are very, well… out of character. It seems that Greg Pak has no grasp of who the Star Warriors are. This arc needs to wrap up, and wrap up fast. The light on the horizon is that a new series will be starting soon, taking place after the events of The Empire Strikes Back with Darth Vader veteran Charles Soule returning to write.
At this point, this series is pretty much just waiting to die. With just a handful of issues left, the story needs to dramatically change. It's hard to expect it can get there. The new series can't come soon enough.
