REBELS AND ROGUES! 'The evil lord Darth Vader, obsessed with finding young Skywalker, has dispatched thousands of remote probes into the far reaches of space...' That's right - you remember the opening titles of The Empire Strikes Back. Now find out what happened just before, as Luke and his friends launch a desperate, three-pronged mission of deception to keep the Empire from finding their new rebel base in a brand-new epic from the new ongoing team of Greg 'PLANET HULK' Pak and Phil 'POE DAMERON' Noto! Featuring Han and Leia undercover in a noir world of romance and danger! Luke and R2 facing off against the Executor in a single X-Wing! And Chewie and Threepio, the greatest team-up you never knew you always needed!

A super fun jumping on point that leads with the title crawl from The Empire Strikes Back as dialogue?!?
Separate missions for Luke/R2, Han/Leia, and Chewie/C-3P0 that have feel for the characters?
Art that is just light years beyond where Phil Noto's sequential art used to be?
All of these things happen. It's sooo bloody good. Welcome new writer Greg Pak and his bag of OT tricks to the show. You're in for a treat.
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
