Din Djarin and Grogu make a brief stop on Nevarro to get some proper repairs done on The Razercrest. While there Din Djarin meets up with his old friends Greef Karga and Cara Dune who rope him into a mission to destroy an imperial base, which turns out to be an old site for Moff Gideon’s cloning experiments. When they find a recorded message talking about these experiments. The gang learns that Moff Gideon is still very much alive, which means that Din Djarin has to rush back to his ship and take Grogu with him before Gideon’s people can get to him.
Steven Cummings does some solid art for this issue. The panels in which Din Djarin, Greef Karga, Cara Dune, and the reluctant Mythrol infiltrate the imperial base are really well drawn. We get great attention to detail for all the control panels and machinery that is hanging around. However, the best panels are the ones that deal with the speeder chase that we saw toward the end of this particular episode. I really loved the heightened sense of drama that Cummings manages to conjure with his illustrations. There’s a great moment where we see the Tie Fighters that are chasing the speeder reflected in Karga’s eyes. It’s a fantastic image.
Rodney Barnes continues to do a solid job of adapting the second season of The Mandalorian into comic book form. This issue in particular is perhaps one of his best yet as it adapts a key episode that really opened the season two story and was the episode that built towards Din Djarin’s first meeting with Ahsoka.
Overall. Another really solid issue. I can’t wait to see what this team does with ‘The Jedi’.
