One of the few issues to of Marvel’s Star Wars title giving us the big three all working together, Star Wars #22 features the Rebellion’s heist of an Imperial Star Destroyer under the guise of blowing up the ship and all hands on-board. Battling the Imperial Fleet while using a stealth aboard the ship (and a little luck), our heroes are able to execute the first part of their plan.
Part of the same story arc of last month’s issue focused completely on Sgt. Kreel and his new squad of elite Stormtroopers, we’ll have to wait at least another month to discover how the two plot threads are woven together over the next few issues and just what the Rebels plan to do with their new toy.
Classic Star Wars fans should have fun with this one getting to see Luke, Leia, and Han Solo (along with Chewbacca, of course) all working together. Throw in a space battle, Rebel subterfuge, and a heist storyline (something I’m always on-board with) and you’ve got an enjoyable single issue which you wouldn’t necessarily have to read the rest of the arc to fully enjoy. Worth a look.
