Synopsis: THE RESCUE! The MANDALORIAN and his allies attempt a daring rescue. MOFF GIDEON unleashes the DARK TROOPERS while the fate of GROGU hangs in the balance! Guest-starring an UNEXPECTED JEDI!
This final issue adapts the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian and tells the story of how Din Djarin, Boba Fett, and Bo-Katan teamed up to rescue the child aka Grogu from Moff Gideon. Of course, Bo-Katan’s looking to obtain the Dark Saber from Moff Gideon and pretty much makes that clear from the get-go. While Boba Fett is repaying a favor.
While the art in this issue doesn’t quite capture the excitement and tension of the actual episode. The artist gets fairly close to it and does a respectable job of it. I feel that a few more panels would have been needed.
Rodney Barnes delivers another fairly good adaptation of perhaps Disney’s most popular Star Wars series. It’s fairly faithful to the original story and is an enjoyable way to revisit the second season of The Mandalorian, which I feel was the show’s peak.
It will be interesting to see how this team does with Book of Boba Fett if indeed an adaptation of that is on the way. I think one is likely given that the last three episodes of this Boba Fett show were Mandalorian episodes.
