Synopsis: Khel Tanna is after Han Solo and Chewbacca! Marshal Buck Vancto is after Han Solo and Chewbacca! Corbus is after Han Solo – well, you get the idea…What does the urn hold that unlocks the future of the Star Wars galaxy?
Having gotten hold of the urn and discovered its contents in the last issue. Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Phaedra are on the run and must find a way to prevent Khel Tanna and Corbus from stealing the urn from them. With Corbus on board the Falcon. Han is keeping a very close eye on him until some of Khel Tanna’s people open fire on the falcon forcing Han to order the ship to take off. After a dogfight between the Falcon and Khel’s ship. The Falcon is forced to make an emergency landing, which lends Corbus the perfect opportunity to steal the Urn.
Meanwhile, Chewbacca and Khel have been captured by Marshall Buck Vancto. But thanks to a deal that Chewie strikes with the Marshall. He and Solo are allowed to go free.
David Messina finishes off his time on this mini-series in style. I loved how he brought the Dogfight between The Millennium Falcon and Khel Tanna’s ship to life. I particularly enjoyed the panel that depicts the Falcon’s crash landing on the planet.
Overall this is a brilliant final issue that does a good job of handing the story arc over to the other Star Wars comics. Specifically the Hidden Empire series. As you will remember. The Urn was found to contain the Naural Core of revolutionary Droid Leader Ajax Sigma in the last issue. A character that was introduced in Hidden Empire at the start of that book’s run. Now that the Urn or its contents are no longer in Han’s possession. It leaves the doors open for a fun spin-off story, which we’ll likely see be told over the course of this year in the various Star Wars comics.
