Synopsis: This month in Star Wars. Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and an elite crew of Rebel heroes are lost in the farthest reaches of No-Space after a mission gone wrong. A desperate maneuver is their only chance to find a way home – but what will it cost them?
Picking things up from the last issue. Luke, Leia, Lando, Chewie, Lobot and Holdo have found their way into No Space and been hunted by Nihil Robots. Having barely gotten away from the platform. The gang meets up with Captain Blythe the leader of the Kezarat colony that has been set up in No Space. Blythe tells Leia and her people about how the fleet of Kezarat Fuel tankers wound up lost in No Space and was not able to escape. He then adds that a war ensued between his Kezarat ancestors and a race of aliens called the nihil. After the war ended the Kezarat set up a colony in No Space where they have lived since.
Blythe tells Leia and her people that they’ll have to come to terms with the fact that there isn’t a way to get out of No Space. But this does not deter them from trying.
Andrés Genolet introduces the one-eyed Captain Blythe who pretty much looks like a Star Wars version of a cyclops. The opening few panels where we see Blythe’s shuttle approaching the colony has a real industrial look, which resembles a series of cargo containers that have been welded together but happen to be in space.
This was a solid issue that does a solid job of giving us more story about the Kezarat Fuel Tankers and what happened to them. I really liked the wall art telling the story of how a Jedi helped the Kezarat in their fight against the Nihil. And I also enjoyed Luke’s response to Blythe’s young son.
