Review: Star Wars #5

Star Wars #5Title: Star Wars #5

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Cost: $3.99

Storytellers: Jason Aaron (writer) with John Cassaday (artist)

Luke makes it to Tatooine, looking for something of Ben Kenobi’s to help train him to become a Jedi. Unbeknownst to Luke, Boba Fett is also on Tatooine looking for him, and using Kenobi as a reference. While this is going on, Princess Leia and Han Solo take and Imperial Shuttle out on a mission, but are spotted by Tie Fighters and the two hide in the atmosphere of a dangerous planet, which sets off a single to an unknown individual, who’s been waiting for someone to trigger the alarm. After Luke battles some Sand People and Boba Fett interrogates some patrons at a local cantina, the two meet at Kenobi’s old home, where Luke discovers a package with his name on it, just after Boba Fett blasts the place with a rocket!

Another great issue of Star Wars, where we finally see Luke come face to face with Boba Fett! While I expect most of that fight will happen next issue, it’s still pretty cool to see these two characters meet like this. I’m not sure what’s going on with Leia and Han or who this mysterious bounty hunter after Solo is, but I can’t wait to find out. This issue features a great story with good art, which is why it is…

Review: Star Wars #4

Star Wars #4Title: Star Wars #4

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Cost: $3.99

Storytellers: Jason Aaron (writer) with John Cassaday (artist)

As Vader puts up with Jabba the Hutt and continues to make his deal with the gangster, so that the Emperor can get some of Jabba resources for the Empire, the Rebellion is deciding it’s next action. With limited supplies and man power, the Rebellion High Council doesn’t want to take on dangerous missions, as Princess Leia does. She believes that Luke is the key, but the fledgling Jedi is unsure of himself and his powers and leaves in order to find himself and learn to be a real Jedi. On Tatooine, a mysterious bounty hunters of sorts is after Han Solo, while another bounty hunter, Boba Fett, is asking around about Ben Kenobi.

Another great issue of this new Star Wars series by Marvel. This series can’t always be high action, so it was nice to see the Rebellion meet and discuss their next plan while Luke has a crisis of faith, so to speak, as Han and Chewie rebuild the Falcon. We also see a lot of Vader, especially his time with Jabba, which seems to be uncomfortable for the Dark Lord. All-in-all, a great issue with a good story and great art.

Review: Tron- Betrayal Paperback Collection

TronReview: Tron- Betrayal Paperback Collection

Publisher: Disney Press

Cost: $9.99

Storytellers: Jai Nitz (writer) with Jeff Matsuda and Andie Tong (pencils) and Pete Pantazis (ink)

Bridging the gap between movies, Tron- Betrayal tells the story of how Flynn created the Grid with the help of Tron. However, when his business life and home life, including the forth coming birth of his son, get in the way of his work on the Grid, Flynn creates Clu, a program based on himself who can oversee the digital world while he’s in the real world. The appearance of the ISOs, digital lifeforms that spawned from nothing causes Clu to obsesses with his mission to create the perfect system. As Flynn’s real world life starts to fall apart at both work and home, Clu uses his absence to gain more power within the system, leading to Tron- Legacy.

I’m a pretty big Tron fan and love both movies and have played a lot of the video games based on them, but I never knew a comic existed based on this unique Disney property. I was out with my friend, LadyB, at Toys R Us and she discovered this gem on the clearance endcap, so at 70% off, I grabbed this small collection. The story is anything great, unless you’re a fan of the movies, then it’s pretty cool to see Flynn set up the Grid with Tron and Clu. The art is alright, shining during the moments in the digital world. All-in-all, this is a great purchase for fans of the Tron movies, whether you find it on sale or not (because at $10, it’s still worth it)!
