Another successful foray into the SW EU comic book edition. This time our story centers around our lovable rookie friend, Chewbacca, as he makes friends with a runaway slave as his ship has crashed and he is stranded on a planet. Together the two help to free the slaves, overthrow the corrupt government who happens to be in line with the Empire, and defeat evil once again. Oh yeah... spoiler alert.
Nothing about this series is groundbreaking but surprisingly, it works. Even though half the panels are illustrated Chewbaccas making non-sensical noises, everything comes together to make for a fairly decent, if not completely predictable, story. This series also gives us some background into when Chewbacca was a slave himself on Kashyyyk which was a nice addition.
The illustrations are nice and well done .The writing is straightforward but good. All together this makes for a pretty good entry into the total Disney - Marvel revamp of the Star Wars universe.
