Star Wars

Synopsis: This month on Star Wars. THE REBELS attempt to create a new communications code that THE EMPIRE will never be able to crack, in hopes that they might be able to safely reunite their scattered fleet and rejoin the fight. However, the code has a cost, one that LANDO CALRISSIAN is not willing to pay!

 

The Story

Picking things up from where issue 9 left off. The rebels have found an old droid that is fluent in TRAWAK. The only issue is. They need a little help to get it up and running. So they can create a series of new communication codes that the Empire cannot break. Fortunately, Lando’s Hybroid friend Lobot is able to communicate with the old droid, but it comes at a cost.

 

The Artwork

Jan Bazaldua continues to provide some brilliant Star Wars artwork, which fits brilliantly with the story. The design of the old android feels bang on with what you’d imagine it to be. In fact, it is rather similar to many of the designs you’d have seen in the clone wars era. Furthermore, Lobot’s facial expressions when he was connecting to the droid were nicely done. They hint at the effort that it is costing him.

Additionally, I also loved the sequence in which Starlight Squadron is attacked by Imperial probe droids.

 

Overall

This story is starting to really open up. I loved the fact that the old Android wasn’t willy to play ball initially and pretty much tells Threepio where to go. It was also very in character for Lando to step in at that point and do what he did.

I also loved the little side plot in which Lando is contacted by Bib Fortuna via Jabba’s palace for the latest info on the rebels. I am quite excited to see how that is all going to play out. Especially given what we already know of Jabba from Return of the Jedi and such.

I continue to enjoy seeing the interactions between Poe Dameron’s parents who are becoming a bigger part of the story as things progress. I loved how this issue ended with a standoff between Poe’s father and Lando.

Overall. A great issue that leaves us with lots to look forward to in the month ahead.
