No...I am your father.
In the wake of the events following The Empire Strikes Back, it is a dark time for the heroes of the Rebellion. The Rebel fleet...scattered following a disastrous defeat at the Battle of Hoth. Han Solo...lost to the bounty hunter, Boba Fett, after being frozen in carbonite. And after being lured into a trap on Cloud City and bested in a vicious lightsaber duel against the evil Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker...learned the horrible truth about his past. Vader did not kill Luke's father Anakin--Vader is Luke's father! Now, after narrowly escaping the dark lord's clutches, and wounded and reeling from the revelation, Luke, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, the Wookiee Chewbacca and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 must fight their way back to the Rebel Alliance-for the fate of the entire galaxy is at stake! After so many losses is victory still possible? But, what Leia, Luke and their ragtag band of freedom fighters do not realize is that they have only traded one Imperial trap for another! Enter the cunning and vengeful Imperial Commander Zahra, at the helm of the Tarkin's Will!

BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


While there is a NEW Darth Vader series coming, it seems Charles Soule is still writing a Darth Vader title, and just calling it 'Star Wars' to keep them easily defined.

Vader looms large over ever aspect of this book-Luke's failure at Cloud City, Lando's failure at Cloud City, Leia's doubts about Lando, and in the mind of the Imperial fleet's officers. He is, rightly, concerned for his son, which allows Luke a universal 'Get out of Space Jail Free' card between ESB and ROTJ.

Soule has Lando down pat, and his Vader should come as no surprise. What he'll need to land is Luke's doubt without considering a turn to the dark side. This issue is technically set during ESB, which is a bit pleasantly ballsy.

The art by Jesus Saiz is great when there are people in it, not as great when we're in space, and downright iffy when we're in space at the end of the issue. Speaking of space, its time for space to be black again in Star Wars titles. Painted blue backgrounds with stars are not space nor an anomaly if they are there all the time. Star Wars has a visually consistent version of what 'space' looks like. I have spoken.


I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
