Review: Star Wars #49

The Rebellion of Mon Cala takes flight! With the Empire on its back foot, the Rebel Alliance is poised to rise up in defiance. Could their ultimate victory be at hand?

How did the Rebellion get their naval fleet? The Mon Calamari are a major part of that and this latest arc wraps up how that all happened. The last issue saw the crew of the Mon Calamari vessels rise up against the Empire after a call to rally and were quickly surrounded by a blockade. This is the issue of their escape. Written by Kieron Gillen, Star Wars #49 is a tense issue where you’re not quite sure who will escape and how. It’s not too shocking as to what happens, the Rebels show up to help, but there’s a tenseness about it all that’s entertaining.

While the story itself is something we’ve seen before, the Rebels surrounded most escape an Imperial blockade, it’s just done really well. It hits the right beats and we get to see moments that have us cheering out loud.

Part of all of that is due to Salvador Larroca who is able to juggle a lot on a page and in a panel. The art is fantastic as always with some great perspectives and coverage of the action. The characters look solid and the explosive moments are exactly that. It feels like a Star Wars film on the comic page.

The issue wraps up the story arc and sets up the next one. While it’s not a place to start, it’s a solid entry into the Star Wars world and answers some questions about how the Rebellion built their fleet. The action is solid. The dialogue is good. The battles are fantastic to look at. While this isn’t ground breaking, it’s one Star Wars fans will enjoy.
