Solo #3 kicks off with a bonus scene showing Qi’ra’s past. It’s just one page, but it gives you a glimpse of what she went through in being handed off to Dryden and Crimson Dawn. The novelization goes into more detail, but here you get some nice images of Qi’ra in training. From there, however, it sticks to the movie: from Dryden’s yacht, to taking off with Lando in the Falcon. As such, there’s not a lot extra to make this one worthwhile.

The story, aside from the bonus page of Qi’ra’s background, sticks very closely with the film. Thus there’s nothing additional other than seeing the artists’ take on the imagery of the film. In that regard, some of the sabacc scenes are interesting with all the aliens, but beyond that, there’s nothing special. Honestly, I’m not sure why anyone would get this comic unless you’re a hardcore collector. The only reason I got it was so I could review it. Definitely a hard pass. I give it one out of five metal bikinis. It’s not that it’s bad so much as it just doesn’t have anything to offer that the movie or novelization doesn’t already provide.
