Life Day

Synopsis: THE GALAXY’S FAVORITE HOLIDAY! Happy LIFE DAY! Celebrate the galaxy’s favorite holiday with a collection of festive tales from all across the STAR WARS SAGA! Life Day is the last thing on HAN SOLO’S mind when he and CHEWBACCA find themselves outgunned and under fire. But Chewie won’t give up hope, remembering the lessons of Life Days past and present. As for Life Days yet to come… well, they’ll have to survive the night first!

 

The Stories

As the Galaxy recovers from the war between the Rebels and the Empire. Han Solo and his buddy Chewbacca accept an invitation to celebrate Life Day with an old friend. However, things get a bit tricky when a group of bounty hunters comes gunning for Han for a past deal that went wrong. From this point on we get treated to a few stories that celebrate Life Day and also celebrate the friendship between Han and Chewie.

Written by Jody Houser, Cavan Scott, Justina Ireland, and Steve Orlando. This special holiday issue of Star Wars is a series of stories that are cleverly interlinked. As we jump back and forth to various different time periods from the Star Wars universe.

 

The Artwork

Ivan Fiorelli does a great job with the art and manages to capture the look and feel of the Star Wars universe. I particularly enjoyed the work he did on the story that is set on Chewbacca’s planet of Kashyyyk. In that story, the Wookiee’s on Kashyyyk are sold some rather dodgy Life Day orbs, which are threatening to kill the Life Day Tree. This is the only story in the book that doesn’t feature Han and Chewie.

 

Overall

Although it didn’t feature the best stories I have ever read. Star Wars: Life Day does feature some fun stories in which we get to see the meaning of the Galaxies celebrations while also seeing Han and Chewie in time somewhere between the end of Return of The Jedi and the start of Force Awakens.
