In Review: Star Wars: Mace Windu (2024-) #3 (of 4)

On the refinery moon RO MIRA, MACE WINDU and smuggler AZITA CRUUZ - carrying the formula to a paradigm-smashing energy source
Mace

Synopsis: On the refinery moon RO MIRA, MACE WINDU and smuggler AZITA CRUUZ – carrying the formula to a paradigm-smashing energy source – are on the run from Ro Mira’s security forces and a HUTT-hired BOUNTY HUNTER. Can MACE dispatch a squadron of fighters led by the ruthless Anzellan YAYA SHRAM with nothing by his LIGHTSABER and THE FORCE?

 

The Story

Having got away from the Bore Worm in the last issue. Mace and Azita now find themselves running from Ro Mira’s security forces, but also have to contend with a ruthless Bounty Hunter working for Jabba The Hutt.

 

The Artwork

Georges Jeanty does some great work on this issue. I particularly enjoyed the panels in which Windu leaps onto Yaya Shrams ship and disables it. I loved the character drawing for Yaya Shram. Also great was the sequence in which the Jedi managed to persuade the Ro Mira security services to step down.

We also get a great series of panels where Azita talks to Mace about her childhood and we see some flashbacks to her childhood.

 

Overall

Marc Bernardin and Mateus Manhanini produce a fun-filled third issue in which we see the protagonists in a thrilling Speeder chase as they escape security forces and one of Jabba’s most diminutive and deadly hunters. I loved the flashback sequence where Azita talks about her childhood and how it has led her to the life that she is leading as a smuggler. I also loved the sequence of panels in which we see some Jedi gymnastics where Windo swoops in on Yaya Shrams ship and disables it.

Overall a fun book that continues to show us a really interesting character in the form of Azita Cruuz who is not necessarily on anyone’s side but her own. I can’t wait to see how this story concludes in the next issue.
