Star Wars Adventures #23 comic reviewThe main story of Star Wars Adventures #23 takes place after the Battle of Endor and the destruction of the second Death Star. Wanting to spend a bit more time piloting the Millennium Falcon, and give Han and Leia some privacy, Lando persuades Chewbacca (who doesn’t want to watch Han and Leia get all lovey dovey) into another mission. Being Lando, however, he fails to adequately explain the risks before getting the pair into trouble.

Looking for information about pirates hitting Rebel supply lines sends the pair into a Battle Race where they don’t fair too well against the other competitors (at least until a Star Destroyer shows up to rally the other racers to Lando’s side and fight off a remnant of the Empire). The story is goofy fun, and has the added bonus of working in a character from the prequels as well.

Star Wars: Target Vader #1 comic reviewThe first issue of the new six-issue mini-series sends Darth Vader after a secret syndicate known as the Hidden Hand. While the Emperor may be able to turn a blind eye to some smugglers, he cannot abide those willing to see to the Rebellion. Vader’s early searches only turn up whispers of the Hidden Hand as he leaves destruction in his wake.

The first issue also gives us Han Solo knock-off cyborg bounty hunter Beilert Valance who isn’t well liked by the other members of the Bounty Hunters Guild. While a rule breaker, Valance isn’t crazy enough to get into business with the Hand… until he discovers just what the job entails. Valance is the final member of a squad already including Honnah, Urrr’k, Chio Fain, Arr-Nine-Nineteen, and Dengar who were all hired to kill one man. Is Vader hunting the Hand, or is the Hand hunting Vader?

Star Wars Adventures #22 comic reviewSet between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi, “A Matter of Perception” takes Princess Leia, R2-D2, and C-3PO to the planet Nothoiin where Rebel Intelligence has reported sightings of Stormtroopers and are worried they might discover what the Rebels are up to in that sector.

When Leia chases an Aleena Youngling, who just stole some supplies from the Falcon, she runs straight into a squad of Stormtroopers. However, after getting their butts kick (Princess-style), the Stormtroopers turn out not to be the enemies Leia was looking for but new potential allies for the Rebellion.
