In Review: Star Wars #14 WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS TIE-IN!

The REBELS finally have a lead on the location of HAN SOLO!
War

Synopsis: This month in ‘War of the Bounty Hunters’. The REBELS finally have a lead on the location of HAN SOLO! It’s time to save the captain of the MILLENNIUM FALCON from his frozen carbonite tomb! A general, a Jedi and a Wookiee will mount a desperate rescue mission… But they have no idea what actually awaits them.

 

The Story

When Princess Leia gets a message from Amilyn Holdo regarding the whereabouts of Han Solo. She immediately calls a meeting to plan a rescue mission, but it won’t be easy. As we found out in ‘Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #13‘ The Crimson Dawn Crime Syndicate now has Solo. Furthermore, They are auctioning off Solo to the highest bidder. In order to rescue Han. Leia plans to pose as a Princess from a little-known planet, but Lando Calrissian is sold on her plan. He has past dealings with Crimson Dawn and knows how slippery and treacherous they can be.

 

The Artwork

Ramon Rosanas puts together some really great panels for this issue, which is a mix of quiet moments and action. I particularly liked the panels in which Luke was having a chat with Leia in which she explains that she’d lost hope. The micro-expressions on Leia’s face is really nicely drawn for this moment. I also liked the brief sequence where we see the holo message from Amilyn Holdo.

I also enjoyed the panels where the Millenium Falcon comes under attack from The Black Dawn and is forced to land. We get a nice overhead shot of the Falcons Cockpit in which we can see Leia, Lando, Chewie, and C3PO figuring out what to do.

 

Overall

Charles Soule does a great job with this issue. I really enjoyed the use of Amilyn Holdo as the person that delivers the news about Han to Leia. Additionally, I especially liked the callbacks to ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ as Lando recalls the events that took place when he is talking with Chewie about going on the mission. Of course this being Lando, he does have another agenda. For my money. This is the best issue of the ‘War of the Bounty Hunters’ story to date.
