Publisher’s Blurb:

This is Star Wars as you remember it . . . and as you have never seen it before! We’re taking you back to those heady, adventure-filled days following the destruction of the Death Star—when the Empire ruled, the Rebels were on the run, and the galaxy was a dangerous place where anything might happen!

Reviewer’s Comments:

Let me start out by saying that Star Wars is a gorgeous book visually. The sheer amount of painstaking detail Carlos D’Anda put is in quite frankly amazing. The worlds, ships and locations feel like they’re pulled directly from the original trilogy. The character designs are no different everyone looks exactly as they should and in some cases better. Darth Vader’s design for example is simply fantastic. It’s far and beyond that of his appearances in the films and yet true to them at the same time. He has never appeared more menacing or powerful as he does in this book at least in my opinion.

At the same time however there are some flaws to this issue. Most notably the excessively heavy exposition, sometimes in story telling less is more. Do I really need to be reminded of Luke’s strong connection to the force or that Han Solo is good hearted rogue? No not even slightly. Brian Wood is asking us to suspend our knowledge of the later 2 entries into the original trilogy. Focusing on a time period that isn’t that fleshed out that lies between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. I have no problem with that at all. I do take issue to having my hand held and being reintroduced to characters I have known for years. I know the concept I know the characters involved and their motivations. All I need is a new and interesting story to enjoy.

I liked the book but it just doesn’t click for me. We do get a really cool scene showing off just how badass Princess Leia can be. I really feel like that moment is the only real saving grace of the issue though. Brian Wood is a talented writer but I just haven’t been impressed with his most recent work creator owned or otherwise. What he has here is the opportunity to craft the last truly great Star Wars tale from Darkhorse. Before the comic rights of course revert back to Disney and are eventually published under Marvel. Whether or not he succeeds of course is entirely dependent on how this series plays out.
