Princess Leia #1 is actually pretty good. There’s a lot of action going on in this one, and it’s full of bounty hunters. This story links up with the Forces of Destiny short where Leia gets the Boushh disguise and fills in the time gap from there to Return of the Jedi.

The comic opens on the Falcon with Leia getting ready to save Han from Jabba the Hutt, but she gets interrupted by a call from Evaan to help out Lando on Arkanis. So Leia shows up there with the Boushh outfit and saves Lando from a bunch of bounty hunters. She works on her impersonation skills as she fools him and the other bounty hunters. This leads to a skirmish with Bossk, some blaster fights, and plenty of close calls for Lando as he gets beat up, pushed around and shot at. There’s some humor, plenty of action, and a good use of the characters. It’s an enjoyable little story.

The artwork is pretty good with the likenesses of the characters. There’s not much emphasis on the environments, but the action is nicely done. The colors are a bit muted, but the color palette does shift around to keep things from getting boring. The artwork in this issue is actually split up with one team doing pages 1 to 12 and 20, and the other doing 13 through 19. The interesting thing is that it’s hard to see the change over as the styles blend together very well.

With good artwork and a fun story, I give Princess Leia #1 a four out of five metal bikinis.
