Luke Skywalker has been captured by a Hutt gangster and is now being forced into combat for entertainment. Chewbacca and C-3PO are on the hunt for Luke. Han Solo and Princess Leia are fleeing the Galactic Empire with the assistance of Han's "wife" Sana.
There is a lot going on in this book but by the end it all looks to be coming together nicely. The Han Solo, Princess Leia and Sana verbal exchanges are well done but the stars of this comic book are Chewbacca and C-3PO. Who would have thought that these two would make such a fantastically entertaining team? Threepio doing the talking and Chewie doing the roaring and pummeling.
Luke may be finding some of his Jedi answers soon, but he's got a serious battle ahead of him. Han and Leia are on the way to the moon where Luke has been captured but it's going to cost them as Leia makes an unsavory deal with Sana.
This book was going really well until the final page. A Gungan is giving information to one of the characters. It kind of looked like a pirate Jar Jar Binks. I'm really glad it was on the last page as it left me feeling underwhelmed. The speech in the balloons was very Jar Jar-like. I hope this isn'y a recurring character.
