Synopsis: “I DON’T KNOW HOW WE’RE GONNA GET OUT OF THIS ONE!” HAN is trapped on the top floor of a skyscraper with security guards closing in on him. How will he escape? Would you believe…asking the Galactic Empire for help? This issue ties directly into Crimson Reign #3. Guest-starring QI’RA & THE ARCHIVIST! Will Han reunite with his first love?
Having got themselves pinned down by private security on the top floor of a skyscraper in the last issue. Han, his father, and, Greedo has to think quickly in order to make as clean a getaway as they can. Thankfully Han has a hunch and calls the security firm’s medical division in the hopes that the medics don’t talk with the security people. To make matters worse. The urn that they are after is not even at Grave’s apartment. It turns out he sold it to a dealer on a backwater planet. So now Han and his team must head to a new destination and steal the urn from the dealer.
David Messina continues to do great work with the art. I loved how the panels were laid out to depict the apartment and Han’s escape plan. But the panel I really enjoyed was Chewbacca driving the speeder car down the streets of Corellia. I also loved the final page in which black krrsantan makes an appearance.
Marc Guggenheim’s heist story continues to tick along at a nice pace. And we even get a few blink and you’ll miss them guest turns from Lady Qi’ra and The Archivist as this issue ties in to events in the recently concluded Crimson Reign storyline. We get a nice father and son moment in which Han shows his dad the Falcon. That said though I am kind of still anticipating a twist in the tail where either Han’s dad betrays his son or perhaps dies while saving his son. But that is likely just my overactive imagination. Much like any reader. I will have to wait and see how this story ends.
