In Review: Star Wars: Yoda (2022-) #9 – WELL, HELLO THERE…

WELL, HELLO THERE… The MEGADROID is on the march!
HELLO

Synopsis: WELL, HELLO THERE… The MEGADROID is on the march! And only Jedi Master YODA and ANAKIN SKYWALKER can stop it. •But what is the lesson Yoda is trying to impart on young Skywalker? •Guest-starring: OBI-WAN KENOBI!

 

The Story

Having destroyed the foundry in the last issue. Yoda and Anakin are faced with the difficult task of disabling the one remaining Megadroid, which is the prototype. Overwhelmed by the size of the task. Anakin believes it is impossible to destroy such a large machine. Yoda reminds Anakin that size matters not. And it is all a matter of perspective. Using this out the box thinking Yoda comes up with a plan to stop the Megadriod and with help from Anakin. They set about stopping the droid.

 

The Artwork

Alessandro Miracolo gets to have some fun with this issue and one of the best sequences from it is when Yoda manages to get inside the Megadroid and systematically goes about deactivating it. However, disabling the droid gives Yoda and Anakin another problem. How does Yoda get out of the droid and how will Anakin stop the droid from rotating in the weightlessness of space?

We also get some great artwork at the end of the issue when it is revealed who it is that’s been trying to contact Yoda in the present.

 

Overall

Marc Guggenheim does a solid job of wrapping this story up and gives us a nice bit of insight into a conversation that Yoda had with Obi-Wan Kenobi before Yoda started to train Luke. Yoda had been blaming himself for the birth of the Empire due to the fact that he had not spotted Palpatine’s corruption or Anakin’s journey into the dark side of the force. This is a conversation, which I think we’ll likely see get continued somewhat in the next issue and I can’t wait to read it.
