  • Threepio enters into aggressive negotiations, and Luke Skywalker embarks upon a desperate mission that will test his growing Jedi skills to the limit.

DrunkWooky analysis: Why would Luke be dressed up in an Imperial Officer’s uniform? Interesting. This is what comic covers are for! definitely whetting my appetite!

SANCTUARY!

  • After the fall of the Galactic Empire, lawlessness has spread throughout the galaxy.

DrunkWooky Analysis: This will be the first appearance of Cara Dune in traditional comic book format. Of course, you can check out the full comics publishing history of Mandalorian comics here, but most collectors will gravitate towards these monthly single issues and call this Cara Dune’s first appearance!

STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #28

GREG PAK (W) • LUKE ROSS (A)
Cover by RAHZZAH
Variant Cover by ROD REIS
Star Wars: A New Hope 45th Anniversary Variant cover by GREG LAND

THE SHADOW IN THE FIRE!

  • For decades, Sabé, Handmaiden of Padmé, schemed to assassinate Darth Vader, whom she believed murdered her queen.
  • But Sabé has learned Vader’s greatest secret, and now she fights at his side, believing that someday, she may prove there is still good in him.
  • What happens when the Handmaiden finally comes face-to-face with the Emperor, who knows all of her secrets?
  • The Queen’s Shadow enters the crucible! Will Vader let her burn?

DrunkWooky Analysis: There’s no way Sabe can escape Palpatine, right? This is the end of the road. In other news, it looks like a new series of Anniversary variants is starting up: A New Hope 45th Anniversary by Greg Land. Kind of a weird anniversary to celebrate, but I suppose they have to do something to fill the gap before Return of the Jedi’s 40th next year. Who knows if these will be as popular as the Sprouse Lucasfilm 50th or Choose Your Destiny Variants, but we’ll see. Those regular covers by Rahzzah and Rod Reis are absolutely stunning examples of some Grade A premium evil Emperor! Love it.
