Easily the best issue of Star Wars this year, but your enjoyment may depend on your love, or lack of, for Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. It has everything you'd want- R2 on a rescue mission, 3-PO annoying his captors just by existing, Luke feeling he falls short, Darth AND Vader, and Darth Vader's Salvador Larroca as the artist. Jason Aaron makes the most of all of these things, and then adds Yoda to the mix as this is a multi issue arc from the journals of Ben Kenobi. It was a treat on day with terrible news.
Carrie Fisher died today. She was by far the youngest of our main Star Wars heroes. She was a hilariously profane presenter. If you never saw her speak to an audience, do yourself a favor and look online. She will be missed.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
