Comic Book Review: Han Solo #3 - Marvel Comics (2016)

Part III

The Dragon Void race has been delayed by the Galactic Empire.  With some persuasion, the Empire does allow the race to re-start and Han Solo is able to continue his secret mission.

One of the best parts of this comic book is the fact you have a bit more to read.  Modern comic books seem to have a lot less words compared to the 70s-80s.  The other part I like, writer Marjorie Liu seems to have a good handle on how Han Solo and other known characters talk in the films.  This feels like it is a part of the film series.

The complaint I have is the notion of how time is tracked.  I find it odd that the term "hours" would be used since that is something based on the revolutions of the Earth.  Why would characters from all across a galaxy long ago and far, far away use our ways of measuring time?  I feel like there should be a way of being more creative in this sense.  All of the Star Wars books seem to have issues with this small quibble I have.

I do enjoy the Star Wars series' from Marvel.  Han Solo takes place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.  This is a fun way of putting together the stories in between the films.
