Princess Leia is continuing her mission to get to the survivors of Alderaan before the Empire does. Unfortunately, word has gotten out that they’re being hunted, so paranoia and suspicion are growing rampant.
When Leia and her new sidekick Evaan arrive on Sullust, they don’t get a great reception. This doesn’t bet any better when Tace, one of Leia’s refugees, inadvertently brings the Imperials down on the group. Tace has been talking with her sister, who is a loyal Imperial, and essentially feeding all their movements right to the enemy. This, of course, ends up in a big fight with some twists along the way.
Plot: Again, another good story with a Star Wars feel. Everything fit nicely. I’ll give this a 3.5 out of 5 for plot
Art: The Dodsons do well on the art chores. It all looks right. I like the choice that Evaan is wearing a jacket like Luke’s at the end of Star Wars- people do occasionally have similar clothes. I’ll give the art a 3.5 out of 5.
Positives: Good action, a great Star Wars feel, and Leia out on her own without either Han or Luke. It was a good story that I enjoyed, and Leia being so passionate aobut her fellow Alderaanians makes perfect sense.
Negatives: Tace is either incredibly naive or really ignorant. Does she not know what her sister does? Or is she foolishly think the sister will keep the secret? That’s my only real compliant thus far, and it’s a small one.
I’m enjoying this miniseries, and I’m looking forward to the conclusion.
