Star Wars (2014) #68

Jul 12, 2019

This issue presented a refreshing start to a new story arc after a good, but exhausting arc that preceded it. Having it clear that the series is staring to build toward Empire Strikes Back adds an element of anticipation as to how it will all come together. The one thing this series does very well that a lot of Star Wars tales miss, is the heavy inclusion of the droids. They are the backbone of the original films, and should be a big part of the story. This new arc seems primed to give us more of that. It's hard to ignore the art and writing style change, but this first offering was a good indication that the feel of the films will carry on.

Aug 13, 2019

As lackluster as these past two issues have been, they follow many classic elements of typical Star Wars adventures. This arc feels a lot like the old 70's/80's Star Wars comics by having three separate stories play out simultaneously, unfortunately so far to its detriment. Hopefully all the set up will have a payoff now that all players are in a place for more galactic conflict among the stars.

At this point, this series is pretty much just waiting to die. With just a handful of issues left, the story needs to dramatically change. It's hard to expect it can get there. The new series can't come soon enough.

It is absolutely satisfying to see this series get out of the quagmire of boring storytelling. It is important that this series goes out with a bang instead of a whimper. With the cover art of the next issue portraying the mighty Chewbacca facing off against Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader, it looks like fans might actually get an epic conclusion to Marvel's longest running series of modern Star Wars comics.

So far, so good in the new Star Wars arc. A lot of focus on the main characters continues to be the selling point of this series, but with a new feel. It will be rough having no Han for a while, but Lando makes for an entertaining proxy, promising a new dynamic in the crew as a whole.

Soule continues to bring his action-packed and clever storytelling to this fresh rebranding of the Star Wars series. Only five issues in and it is already one of the most compelling entries from the entire series. Having heavy ties to events from the film has never been new to the series, however this one taking place over the week after The Empire Strikes back takes that concept to an almost intimate level, so much so that it doesn't seem like an in-between series, but a continuation of that film.

Having a clear arc ending is a bittersweet position for a fan to be in. On one hand, this one concluded well without a weak issue in the bunch. On the other hand, it means the series is going to take a new turn, which can be scary and exciting. Soule started out strong here and if history is any indication, he will be serving up more Star Wars awesomeness just around the corner.

It will be exciting to see more of Commander Zahra at the helm of Tarkins Will as she hunts Leia and her rebels across the galaxy. One opponent is a battle hardened princess/ex-senator/commander. The other is a battle hardened mentee to a famous dead Imperial hero. Who will win? Clearly Leia, yet it would behoove the reader to expect a massive fight sooner than later against the two commanders.

The groundwork has been set for this story arc to really get going. Zahra gets the upper hand by leaving Leia hurt and questioning herself and the rebellion, or so it would seem. Anyone who truly knows the politician/warrior/princess should never underestimate the daughter of freedom fighters Bail and Breha Organa! The more the Empire tightens its grip, the more star systems will fall through its fingers.

This issue ends with a possible betrayal from a beloved character and possible doom for another one. The Rebels now have the way to communicate with other factions of the Alliance, but a lot can change before Leia can expect rescue for her stranded group. It would also seem Lando has made up his mind as well, but a lot can change between now and next issue for him before the arc wraps up.
