Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Star Wars Annual #3

This review of Star Wars Annual #3 contains minor spoilers.

You can learn a lot about a person when they’re under pressure, under the gun and overwhelmed.

Thanks to the tight storytelling of writer Jason LaTour and artist Michael Walsh, our understanding of the unique dynamic between Han Solo and Princess Leia is on solid ground, even if the earth beneath them is constantly quaking.

Their 33-page story in Star Wars Annual #3 is a fast-paced journey, drawing inspiration from the Indiana Jones franchise, while upholding the standard for brisk Star Wars action and adventure.

The Rescue Plan from Jabba’s Palace (Part I)

The Rescue Plan - Freeing Han from Carbonite

The first act of Return of the Jedi featured Han Solo’s rescue by his friends from the clutches of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. Luke, Leia, Lando, Chewbacca, and the droids each arrived at Jabba’s palace either individually or in pairs. Not that Star Wars fans need a reminder, but eventually Leia freed Han from the carbonite. However, Jabba then threw Han in a dungeon and kept Leia by his side in her iconic outfit. Luke showed up and the rescue moved into its final stages. A question arises: was Han’s rescue a well executed plan or the result of improvisation by Luke, Leia, and the others? Although there isn’t a definitive answer, an analysis of the scene suggests Han’s rescue was the result of a well-executed plan with some improvisation thrown in. This two part blog post will analyze the steps of the rescue plan and evaluate how much went according to a plan, and what they left to improvisation. Read more

IDW Star Wars Comics Review: Star Wars Adventures #2

This review of Star Wars Adventures #2 contains minor spoilers.

There’s no sophomore slump for IDW Publishing’s Star Wars Adventures #2.

Issue two, like the first, sports a main story and a backup tale from Wild Space. Both are equally charming, splendidly paced and adroitly written and illustrated.

This issue also marks a milestone, too, with artist Elsa Charretier making her comics writing debut, co-scripting the Tales From Wild Space backup “The Flat Mountain of Yavin” with Pierrick Colinet.
