Star Wars #33 is a self-contained issue starring Luke and Leia in a castaway scenario. Stranded on a desert island, they have to survive. Then the Empire arrives and they have to fight back. It’s a nice little issue.

Things start out in space as Luke and Leia are trying to out run some TIE fighters. The dialog is spot on and captures the feeling of the characters as they escape the Imperials, crash land and do a bit of bickering back and forth. From there its survival as they find themselves with a broken ship on a small island on an ocean planet. Food and water become priorities. They meet the natives on the planet, then engage in a battle with the Empire. It provides some nice action, and of course it ends with a happy ending. But there’s also a hook for the next issue involving Lando and Sana.

Star Wars #33 is pretty solid storywise. The characters feel like the movie characters, and the story is self-contained and fun. My only gripe is that Imperial armor is once again taken down a notch as Luke and Leia find a way to pierce it with some alien shark quills. It appears Imperial armor is completely worthless.

The art is pretty good throughout. There’s some nice panels, but there are a couple that look weird with the coloring. For some reason some of the characters are shaded really dark even though the environments are really bright. It’s kind of odd and distracting. Otherwise the visuals do a good job of bringing the story to life.

With good artwork and an enjoyable story, I give Star Wars #33 a five out of five metal bikinis. This one is very much a one off issue that doesn’t require you to read anything else to understand it. It’s kind of a nice change of pace.
