BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy

I love this series, but this is a particularly good issue. We learn that the Rebels have a prison, its hidden well, and that they'd love to put Dr. Aphra in it. She has other ideas, which leads to some strong interplay between her, Leia, and Sana(not)Solo. Pretty terrific to have the good guys, bad guys, and rogue guys all not be guys in the same scene.

Where are the guys? They're off cheating at cards. Han's been playing hero too long to be any good at it, and this leads to another revelation that knocks him down a peg about his importance in the galaxy to anyone who isn't him. We also have a mystery figure trying to break into the prison Sana is trying to break out of. If my eyes are right, its going to be someone we've seen in Lando's mini series, also drawn by new regular artist Lenil Francis Yu! It's sad to see Stuart Immonen go (he's the best) but Marvel has done a stellar job each time someone has to move on. I just don't know who they get after Yu is done.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
