Comic Book Review: Han Solo #1 - Marvel Comics (2016)

Written by Marjorie Liu
Art by Mark Brooks
Colors by Sonia Oback

Han Solo isn't having his best luck as a smuggler.  The Rebellion seems to recognize this and actively pursues the service of Han Solo, or rather his ship the Millennium Falcon for a race that is well known throughout the galaxy.

Marvel Comics continues their impressive run on comic books based on the Star Wars films.  This book takes place, much like the Star Wars and Darth Vader comic books, after A New Hope and before The Empire Strikes Back.  Marjorie Liu does an incredible job writing this first installment.  Han and Leia's interactions are pretty spot on as far as what you would expect both characters to say within the situations they are put in.  I like that the Millennium Falcon continues to be its own character within the world of Star Wars.

Mark Brooks is an incredible artist and his work here shows it.  The faces are key to these issues and Brooks nails it.  Sonia Oback's colors look wonderful as well.

For those of you who enjoy the Star Wars films, I'd highly recommend the comic books.  I hear the voices of the characters in my head because the writing is fantastic and the art has thus far been phenomenal.  I was fortunate enough to receive the variant cover to this comic book in the June 2016 Zwaag Bag subscription service.  The cover looks like the toys I used to get when I was young.  How cool would it be to get an old Han Solo on card like this?  You can read my reviews of Zwaag Bag on
