If I were a ten year old little boy or even just interested in Star Wars I probably would have loved this book. However, I am not either one of those so the book was just, dare I say cute, for me. The graphics were impeccably done and I could see what would draw in the avid Star Wars fan. I am just not a fan of the futuristic science fiction. On the positive side, I did laugh out loud at all the "BOOM!" and various other fighting expressions. It made me think of the old Batman cartoon with the c ...more
Fiction State Of Mind
Han & Leia are two of my favorite characters from the Star Wars saga. When I stumbled across this graphic novel in a used bookstore a few days before The Force Awakens I snapped it up right away. Dark Horse comics did a wonderful job keeping the Star Wars fandom afloat with their comic book adventures.

This story takes place a year before The Empire Strikes Back. This story find Han & Leia on a solo adventure that goes from bad to worse. After stealing some Imperial intel Han convinces L
Leia and Han are on a mission to return vital data to the rebellion. They get caught up in the kidnapping of another princess. This is a lot of fun, the story is incidental to Han and Leia's conversations. A good read.

Honestly, how do pencils this bad make it to print? Even Atiyeh, who is usually a really good colorist, seems to be phoning it in. It's just such a lazy looking comic.

Wow, a rare treat for all you Han/Leia shippers! I was tipped off about this yesterday and ran out today to buy it. It's set not long after the events of A New Hope, and we get a glimpse of Han and Leia having to work together to solve an awkward dilemma. It's actually got moments of squeeness, along with humor, action, and the sort of fun that made us fall in love with these characters to begin with. All I can say is it's about damned time!

A graphic novel that takes place between New Hope and Empire (I think). It was quick and all right.

I love Leia. I kind of wished she wasn't the only tough chick in the room on this one. We have the other princess who is "not Leia" who needs rescuing. I guess I just didn't need to see the damsel in distress next to Leia to realize that Leia kicks ass. We already know that.

Meant for preteen and up readers, this Star Wars graphic novel follows the exploits of Han Solo and Leia as they try to deliver cargo to planets while avoiding trouble. I didn't care for the artwork style but the story is interesting and will entertain young readers and hopefully get them involved in the world of Star Wars. A great book for reluctant readers.

Cute story featuring Han Solo and Princess Leia working together on a mission for the Rebels. The mission goes a little awry when a detour sets off a chain of events that nearly gets them killed. I can definitely see this being a missing scene or between movies, it's very well written and very much in character.
