Elizabeth Wein's Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Cobalt Squadron focuses on Paige and Rose Tico and the Cobalt and Crimson Squadrons of StarFortress Bombers as they attempt to covertly provide aid to a planet blockaded by the First Order. Wein ably examines the Tico sisters' backstory, placing their family relationship at the core of her narrative so that her discussion of fear and sacrifice feels more natural than it might otherwise. These themes directly tie into the those of Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi while also allowing this story to stand on its own. In her acknowledgements, Wein thanks the Canadian Warplane Heritage museum for flying her in their Lancaster bomber. This experience shows in her description of life on a bomber crew, which recalls stories of World War II as befits the tone of Star Wars. Finally, Wein's story helps explain where the bombers were during the events of The Force Awakens in a way that makes the Tico sisters' story meaningful rather than perfunctory. Wein's work is a welcome addition to the collection of Star Wars stories in this format, such as Jason Fry's The Weapon of a Jedi and Greg Rucka's Before the Awakening. Phil Noto's art continues to give these books a coherent feel while also evoking the color palette used in The Last Jedi promotional materials. ( )
