My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is an entirely decent comic, it’s just…I’m just not really into it, you know?

I think the thing that’s really bothering me is that this is set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi, and at the end of Empire we see Lando heading off to find Han…who he knows Boba Fett was taking to Jabba. He knows where Jabba is. So…he surely went to Jabba’s palace and infiltrated his guards and… Well, apparently not, apparently he hung out with the Rebellion for a while, going on missions with them, and Lobot was with him too, and he was secretly communicating with Bib Fortuna and wrestling with whether or not he should sell the Rebels out…

And, while, sure, none of that directly contradicts anything we saw in the movies, it doesn’t quite feel right. Maybe Soule will turn it around by the end of this arc and I’ll be into it, but that hasn’t happened for me yet.

I did like all the stuff with the pilots though, and it’s great to see Poe’s parents being given something to do.

I should also, I think, address the cover…as I talked about the fact that Leia was on the cover of #9 but hardly in the actual comic in my review of that issue. Well, Luke pretty much takes up the entire cover of #10, with his new yellow lightsaber at the ready (which I’ve just realised must be referencing the fact that Kenner gave Luke a yellow lightsaber back in the day)…but he’s not in a single panel of this comic. Which is a bit misleading…

Anyway, it’s by no means a bad comic, it just has some issues which pulled me out of the story. Maybe I’m just a nerd?
