A Review: STAR WARS #7

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of STAR WARS #7 from Dark Horse Comics. The story is by Brian Wood, pencils by Ryan Kelly, inks by Dan Parsons, colors by Gabe Eltaeb, and lettering by Michael Heisler.

While in temporary hiding, Leia reveals to Luke the truth about the stealth squadron. Luke devises a risky plan that might smoke out the spy within the Rebellion. On Coruscant, Han and Chewie are trying to escape, but Bossk and Boba Fett aren’t making it easy. Meanwhile, the Emperor arrives to check the progress on the second Death Star. To his dismay he finds Vader gone and Birra Seah supervising the project.

I’ve been waiting for this series ever since it was first announced and I haven’t been let down yet. Brian Wood has taken our favorite characters and given them new life. He shows how quickly Luke has grown and matured in a short period of time. The scene on Tatooine where he morns the loss of Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen and reflects what he had put them through is amazing. I also like his new character Birra Seah; a Force sensitive who has become a useful ally for Vader. I am very curious to see where Wood goes with this alliance.

STAR WARS #7 is in stores now or available for ordering at www.darkhorse.com.
