Star Wars

Synopsis: This month in Star Wars, The Empire’s greatest secret is in the hands of two Crimson Dawn double agents, who are racing to deliver it to the Rebel Alliance to buy themselves safe haven. But the Empire knows what they have stolen, and the entire Imperial Navy is in hot pursuit!

 

The Story

Picking up from events in the last issue. Crimson Dawn Spies Melton and his wife have escaped in an Imperial Shuttle, but when the new Death Star calls the Shuttle for a security update. Things get dangerous as the couple and their kids find themselves being chased by Tie Fighters. After reaching out to the Rebels for help fails. The two spies find themselves having to take desperate measures.

Meanwhile, back at the Rebel Fleet General Syndula is giving a briefing, which includes the communication that was sent by the two spies.

 

The Artwork

Andrés Genolet does some solid work in this issue as we get quite a few shots of the shuttle and the desperate spies trying to escape. I loved how disorganized everything looked at the Rebel Communications station that the Shuttle reached out to.

Genolet, also does a great job of capturing the sense of panic in the faces of the two spies.

Once again. The likenesses of some of the established characters are a bit off.

 

Overall

This issue of Star Wars does a great job of giving us a smaller story that fits into the whole. We get to see the story of a couple of unsung heroes in the form of Melton and his wife as they work to escape from the Empire while working for the Crimson Dawn. The action beats that happen while they try to escape the Tie Fighters are really well written. I especially enjoyed the brief moment of triumph when Melton’s wife successfully shoots down one of the Ties.

Overall. A pretty good issue.
