Review: Star Wars: Han Solo #1

Han_Solo_1_CoverHan Solo has finally entered his ship into the Dragon Void Run – an infamous high-stakes race across the stars. You know, the race Han has dreamt of winning. Only there’s a catch – his entry into this legendary race is a top-secret undercover mission for Princess Leia and the Rebellion! Will he keep his mind on the mission? More importantly – can he manage to pull it off while still maintaining his lead in the race?!

Marjorie Liu writing Star Wars, especially Han Solo?! Yes, please! Star Wars: Han Solo #1 is set after the Battle of Yavin and has the Rebellion reaching out to have him compete in a mission only he can pull off. The concept and story feels natural in every way fitting into Star Wars easily and not feeling forced.

Liu plays off Solo’s reputation giving us the classic arrogant smuggler which doesn’t want to admit he’s a good guy. But, she does that in a build that begins in the beginning of the issue, veers a little bit, and ends with some awesome action. That’s what really impressed me with the issue. Liu slowly builds up the action of the issue for an ending that has me really excited for the next issue. It again shows Liu’s mastery of storytelling, she really takes the reader along for the ride here building up to a fun payoff.

She’s helped by Mark Brooks whose art feels like a mix of modern Star Wars comics and the classic 1980s comics I grew up reading. It’s awesome, where each character looks like their live action selves. There’s also tons of detail in the alien world and aliens.

This is an absolute get if you’re a fan of Star Wars, Marjorie Liu, or Mark Brooks. The new series continues Marvel’s killing it with their line of Star Wars comics.
