It is fun to go back and read about our favorite Star Wars characters again. This picks up after volume 1 and is still set in between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. While not perfect it does capture the pure fun of the movies and was an enjoyable read. Now on to volume 3! ( )

In this comic, Luke has been left with a journal by Obi Wan Kenobi that he is reading hoping to learn how to be a Jedi, but finds that it is only filled with stories about Obi Wan's hard life on Tatooine watching over him from a distance and not being able to use his Jedi powers to help others and living a purposeless life doing nothing with his days.

Luke, desperate to find out more about the Jedi and their ways, seeks to find a way to Coruscant the one time home to the Jedi Temple. So, being the naive fool Luke can be at times, he goes to Nar Shaddaa, the Smuggler's Moon in order to find a pirate or smuggler to take him there. Instead, the second he shows his lightsaber someone tries to steal it from him in order to sell it to Grakkus the Hutt who has a collection of Jedi artifacts. When Grakkus realizes that Luke is a Jedi he has big plans for him that include opening up the holcrons and dying valiantly in the ring as the last Jedi.

Meanwhile, Leia and Han are on a planet with Imperial ships above them and a woman named Sana is with them who says she is Han's wife. Han denies it, but Leia doesn't believe him. Sana tells her that he is just conning her in order to turn her in for a big payday. She says that that is what he has done in the past. Sana is pretty mad and she wants Han back as her husband and Leia is happy to oblige. Sana lets the Imperials know that Leia is on the planet in order to get the bounty on her not knowing that Han is also a wanted man.

This is a fabulous comic in that the plot is captivating. Han is married! And all the Jedi artifacts and knowledge close to Luke! How will Luke get out of the situation he is in? And will Han and Leia convince Sana to not turn in Leia and somehow escape the planet? The coloring is quite vivid and just pops off the page. The art is beautifully done and the paneling is quite creative. Overall this is an amazing comic and I highly recommend reading it, especially today. Happy May the Fourth Be With You Day! ( )

I remove half a star compared to vol 1. Reason is, we get some more idiocraties in this volume and my patience is running short on those by now. The story with Obi-wan was pretty great though. Story about Han's "wife" got old pretty quick after the third billion times Hans got cut midsentence by either Leia or the "wife". Story about Luke was "meh" at best, but loved seeing Chewy in action. ( )
