Star Wars #68

Star Wars #68 kicks off a new arc for the main series and introduces a new creative team with Greg Pak and Phil Noto. To get things started, the issue splits the main characters off into three teams as they each go off on their own mission for the Rebellion. There’s a nice mix of action and humor that keeps this one entertaining.

General Rieekan hands out new orders sending Luke and R2 to a planet called Sergia to save a Rebel refueling station, Han and Leia to a core world planet called Lanz Carpo, and Chewbacca and 3PO to a planet called K43. Each mission is its own little adventure. Luke fails to draw off the Imperials, so he’s forced to go down to the planet and deal with the probes on foot. The planet turns out to be similar to Tatooine. Han and Leia get into trouble on Lanz Carpo with the corrupt locals, but they’re saved by Leia’s boyfriend, or ex-boyfriend maybe. And then Chewbacca and C-3PO have an adventure on a lava world called K43. Their mission is to blow it up, but instead they find a species of rock people, so now they have to stop the bombs before they blow. Through all of the stories, there’s a good mix of humor and action. Greg Pak does pretty good with the characters and the dialog.

Phil Noto handles not only the cover art, but the interior art as well for this one. Phil has a nice style. It’s clean, detailed, has a good representation of the characters, and nice coloring. It makes for a good looking comic.

With good artwork and a pretty good story, Star Wars #68 gets off to a good start. I give it a four out of five metal bikinis.
