Review: Star Wars Vol. 2: Showdown on the Smuggler's Moon

Series: Star Wars (2015): #2

Series: Marvel Star Wars

The continuing in between adventures of all our original trilogy friends!

It’s a fun one, a dueling pair of adventures and a bit of backstory bridging the original trilogy and the prequels. I think that’d be an interesting era to read more about. How exactly did things go so badly so quickly.


Han and Leia are off meeting old wives (and getting shot at).

Luke is off reading Obi-Wan’s diaries…

…and bumping into Hutts. What else is new?

It’s such a mess that they have to end up rescuing Luke from, but I kind of appreciate that. Each gets their own turn being the one in distress!

(Side note: I thought lightsabers were supposed to be difficult to wield without the force…)
