Synopsis: THE HEIST IS ON! HAN, CHEWIE and GREEDO have to pull off an impossible heist for JABBA THE HUTT! But who can Han trust? SPOILER: Han breaks into his target’s safe, but you won’t believe what’s inside!
Picking up from where the last issue left off. Han, Greedo, and Chewie have been sent to Corellia on a job to steal an Urn containing the remains of Jabba The Hutt’s rival. Having triggered alarms in their initial attempts to case their targets home and find the Safe. However, things take a turn when Han’s father shows up in a bar. After some initial hard feelings between the father and Son. Han gets his Dad to agree to lend him some equipment to use in order to break open his targets safe, but Hans’s dad insists on coming along.
Meanwhile, back on tatooine. Marchal Buck Vancto calls upon Bib Fortuna for help in his mission to track down Solo and his Wookie friend.
David Messina continues to do solid work on this issue. The detail of the surroundings is brilliantly done as are the character drawings. The artist does a great job of capturing that well-used look that we are used to seeing in this particular time period in the Star Wars universe. Furthermore, we get some nice imagery of some of the games that Bib Fortuna indulges in during his downtime on tatooine.
Marc Guggenheim continues to tell a fun heist story in this mini-series. However, I am still waiting for one of the characters to say the classic, “What could possibly go wrong” line. Which would be especially funny now. Given that pretty much everything has gone wrong as the holes in Greedo’s plan have begun to get revealed.
Overall. This is a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing how our anti-heroes manage to get out of this.
