The (first) Death Star has been destroyed. The Empire remains in dogged pursuit of the Rebel Alliance. And the only cause Han Solo still seems to care about is Han Solo.
In this exclusive four-page preview of the second issue (out Feb. 13), we see that Solo and his trusty wookiee Chewbacca are still very much free agents — and a famed nemesis was in pursuit of them well before the events of Empire. Check it out on the following pages, and use your cursor as a magnifier for a closer look!
I recently read Star Wars #1 and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. It was very refreshing to see, what essentially looks to me like a reboot, come to the world of Star Wars comic books.
Seeing the comic books revisit the classic trilogy era really gave me the feeling of something fresh. I find this somewhat paradoxical because it is set in an era and that’s been used over and over again. However, for me it was refreshing to have a comic that I didn’t feel like I had to read 200 previous issues to fully appreciate.
Because the expanded universe has gone so far outside of the familiar territory of the films, it’s nice to see a comic book very closely tied into the on-screen saga.
As a big fan of the movies I have to say; Dark Horse, you have me hooked. I’m interested.
