Everything I know about the original Star Wars is slowly spinning and I don’t know if I should make it stop.

SPOILERS AHOY!

VADER IS NOT PLEASED.

Something that I’m betting is hard to do, is to make Vader show his emotions. Which is obviously hard when he’s wearing that black mask all the time. Maybe he takes it off when he goes to sleep to air it out? I dunno, let’s get back on track. Vader is basically getting the shaft from the Palpatine, and seriously, he got the Death Star blown up, so yeah, sorry that you’re on bitch duty watching the second Death Star getting made Lord Vader. So, so sorry.

Meanwhile, Luke is getting what seems to be some nookie in the cockpit of his new fighter, so much for that whole Jedi emotional detachment thing, right? Obviously Leia doesn’t take too kindly to this and forces Luke into stimulations for a couple of shifts. Something that was interesting for me is really seeing the kick ass leader side of Princess Leia, she’s the leader of the super secrete squad that is trying to find Mon Mothra’s leak in the intelligence pipes that keeps screwing over the rebellion. And, trying to find a suitable homeworld for the Rebellion, so, I’m wondering how long it’s going to be until they get all up on Hoth.

My favorite part of the comic was Han Solo of course (Also, see gallery below for this scene), on some kind of mission with enough credits to make Jabba the Hutt blush to buy some very advanced weaponry for the Rebellion. What does Solo do when he starts to smell a rat? Shoots the dude before anything even starts and gets the hell out of there with Chewbaca in tow.

Just like how we expect him to, like the awesome that Han Solo is.

I really didn’t know what to expect from this new Star Wars comic run, I’ve never been a crazy fan of the series. I know enough to have good nerdy conversation, but reading this comic is making me think of the original series in a new way. Like, I want to go back and re-watch them, but have this little perspective that Brian Wood is adding to the storyline. Three issues deep now, I’m hooked, thank you Dark Horse for making me fall for Star Wars all over again.
