The Freemaker Adventures - Home One TV revoew

Season two of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures begins with the Freemakers finding a new home with the Rebellion. While the humans prove their value with repairs and ability to trade for parts, Roger (Matthew Wood) ends up getting into trouble (although one of his stunts does earn him a medal when he unintentionally helps the Rebel Fleet take down a Star Destroyer). Another of Roger’s screw-ups gets both the robot and Rowan (Nicolas Cantu) involved in a bombing run. Even Zander (Eugene Byrd) gets some short-lived glory by taking down an entire squadron of TIE Fighters… before blowing himself up.

Darth Vader #1

Darth Vader #1 comic reviewSet earlier than Marvel’s previous Darth Vader series, the new comic begins shortly following the events of Revenge of the Sith with a newly resurrected Darth Vader sent out to prove his work to the Emperor and earn himself a new lightsaber. The logic of his mission seems a bit off, even for a Sith proving himself to his master, and I don’t know how I feel about the comic’s goofy explanation for where red Kyber Crystals come from.

While the setting allows for far more storylines than the previous comic (set between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back) it also means we’re unlikely to see much in way of appearances of core Star Wars characters. The issue also includes a more humorous back-up story set far later in Vader’s timeline (mainly to justify a higher pricepoint for the comic).

Star Wars #30

Star Wars #30 comic reviewLed by the journals of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker‘s journey takes him to an unnamed planet in the Vagadarr System where he will cross paths with Garro, who still holds a grudge for Yoda‘s interference on the world decades before. Seeing Yoda’s adventures in flashbacks, the Jedi Master uses the Force to restore balance to the planet by reanimating the Giants of Living Stone.

Fueled by years of bitterness since the Jedi Master left, Garro has seen his world transformed in ways he never imagined and decides to take that anger out on Luke, hoping to strip the pilot (who he mistakes for Yoda’s student) of his power to finish off the rock creatures and restore order to his world.
