Comic Review: Star Wars: Shattered Empire #3
A small band of Rebels led by Han Solo are secretly infiltrating a secret Imperial base on a snowy planet. They start destroying Walkers, speeder bikes and Stormtroopers with rocket launchers until the base is secure, after the fight has finished typically C-3PO arrives.
Back in Theed, the capital of Naboo Princess Leia, The Queen of Naboo & Shara Bey come to the conclusion that the Imperials are attacking Naboo from space. Our butt kicking trio of heroines decide to jump in some Naboo Starfighters, as seen in Episode One: The Phantom Menace.
Back at the Imperial Base the Rebels have broken into the heart of the complex and C-3PO has found information about The Emperors attack on Naboo from beyond the grave, Han quickly realises that Leia is in serious trouble.
But he need not have worried as the three Naboo Starfighters destroy the ties that are streaking from the belly of a Star Destroyer. Just when it seems all is lost and the three are overwhelmed Lando Calrissian and a group of Rebels arrive in the nick of time, obviously tipped of by Han, at the battle to assist and destroy the remaining Imperial ships, saving the day in the process!
I'm really enjoying this series, probably because its our first insight into what happens post Return of the Jedi and is beginning to fill in the gaps. Its also a great nod to the prequels with the inclusion of Naboo and I thought it was nice that leia has visited her Mothers home planet. There is a couple of great panels on Naboo when leia enters the ship hangar and feels Darth Maul through the Force, I'm glad the Prequels aren't being ignored, even though Darth Maul is one of the more popular aspects of the Prequels, I'm not sure Jar Jar would be well received by some.
The art is gorgeous throughout, i love the colours of the covers and the Characters are superbly drawn, in some shots leia actually looks like a photo, she is that accurate!
