Star Wars (2020-) #13 by Charles Soule
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Now…this is Star Wars!
The War of the Bounty Hunters continues as Luke, Chewie and the droids track down a lead that Boba Fett is on Nar Shaddaa, the smuggler’s moon. And he was, we saw that in War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha. Anyway, the contact on Nar Shaddaa turns out to be Sagwa, a Wookie Chewbacca freed from slavery in the spice mines of Kessel during Solo…which was a nice call back.
Anyway, they don’t find Fett but they do find Kanji, and hijinks ensue. Aggressive hijinks. Which are hijinks with a lightsaber. There’s some great action here, and it’s definitely good to see Luke cut loose (if you’ll excuse the pun) with his yellow lightsaber. This is classic Star Wars action, lightsabers, blaster bolts, droids making inappropriate comments. I love it.
Also, we learn that Artoo has some info about the location of some old Jedi temples he found when they were on the Death Star, which I expect will become relevant sometime after this massive crossover event.
So, superb stuff, so much fun.
