Star Wars

Synopsis: This month on Star Wars, The Rebel Alliance is in crisis! With their supply lines in jeopardy due to unfulfilled promises from Crimson Dawn, General Leia Organa knows it is just a matter of time before the Rebels run out of crucial supplies. Fortunately, Amilyn Holdo has a solution…a hunt for a vast hoard of fuel thought lost for centuries. It’s time…for a treasure hunt!

 

The Story

Having learned about the new Death Star in the last couple of issues. Leia and the team are in need of a break, but they can’t really take too much time out given that their supplies are low. To that end, Amilyn Holdo thinks she has come up with a plan that will allow them to kill two birds with one stone. While taking a brief holiday. Amilyn, Leia, Lando, Luke and Chewie stay at a luxury mansion while attending an auction. The item they are interested in is an old-style spaceship that has some of the mythical past. Holdo thinks that the ship holds the key to finding a pair of fuel ships that went missing about 200 years ago. If this proves to be true it would solve the fuel shortages that have brought the Rebel Fleet to somewhat of a standstill.

 

The Artwork

Ramon Rosanas produces some good visuals in this issue. I particularly liked how well-drawn the auction was. Especially the masks that Leia and Holdo were having to wear so they could hide in plain sight. I also enjoyed the sequence shortly after where Luke uses his lightsaber as a distraction so that Leia, Holdo, and Leia can access the old ship that they’d tried to bid on.

Overall this is a fun little story that highlights Amilyn Holdo and explores her relationship with Leia, which was only really briefly hinted at in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The book ends with a fun cliffhanger in which the group winds up in unexplored space.
