Synopsis: INTO THE STORM AGAINST THE BORE WORM! MACE WINDU & AZITA CRUZ must work together to escape the menace of the BORE WORM! But what else lies in their path and who is following them? And what is COAXIUM ULTRA?

 

The Story

Mace Windu and Azta Cruz are forced to work together in order to escape a menacing Bore Worm. This gives them a little time to get to know each other. Throughout this both the Jedi and Smuggler discuss their differences in opinion and how individual circumstances have made them who they are.

Meanwhile, on Tatooine Jabba the Hutt dispatches one of his many rogues on a mission to obtain the special fuel from Azta.

 

The Artwork

Like with the last issue. Georges Jeanty continues to do a solid job of the artwork. The highlight of this issue is the drawing of the Bore Worm which takes centre stage as the Jedi and the smuggler have to try and outsmart it. I also quite liked Jeanty’s interpretation of Jabba’s palace.

 

Overall

Aside from possibly having nicked the Bore Worm from the Flash Gordon movie, in which they were used as a means of torture. The Bore Worm’s in this story are much bigger and seemingly quite difficult to kill.

The highlight of this story is the relationship between Mace Windu and Azta Cruz who have had very different life experiences. When asked why she is selling the fuel to multiple parties, Azta gives the obvious answer that she is looking to make a profit and would rather deal with a life of danger than a life in poverty. The entire conversation between the Jedi and the Smuggler does pose a few moral questions, but does so in a non-judgmental way.

Overall. This is a solid second issue that does a good job of developing the relationship between the two key characters.
