One of the things I really love about Charles Soule’s Star Wars writing is his handle on just how annoying C-3PO can be. Offering preliminary information that everybody has heard over and over again, the droid is frequently long-winded at the most inconvenient of times. He does serve as an important expositive narrative device, though.
Luke’s skills against training drones seem to be improving as Threepio and Chewbacca recruit Luke to track down Boba Fett who was recently spotted on Nar Shadaa (see War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1)!
The run up to War of the Bounty Hunters continues next week, 5/12/21, with Star Wars #13. Check out the preview straight from Starwars.com below! You can pre-order it over at TFAW! (Sprouse Variant, Rosanas Crimson Variant)
PRELUDE TO WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS: ‘THE HUNT FOR HAN’ CHEWBACCA has heard from an old friend with intelligence on the location of notorious bounty hunter BOBA FETT, known to be in possession of HAN SOLO. Along with LUKE SKYWALKER, the loyal Wookiee sets off in search of his lost friend, on an adventure to Nar Shadaa… the SMUGGLER’S MOON! But will this mission prevent plucky astromech droid ARTOO DETOO from passing along a crucial message to Luke, one that will affect the fate of the entire Jedi Order…? Rated T
