Luke Skywalker fights side-by-side with a shipwrecked veteran
from the Clone Wars, Han Solo flirts with an old flame only
to land in the fire, and BoShek (the galaxy's second-coolest
smuggler) attracts blaster fire from rebels and imperials
alike in this collection featuring some of the most unexpected
stories in the era of the Empire...
and Adversaries is
the fifth collection in the Star Wars: Empire range
of graphic novels. This release features three tales set after
Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.
Bravery of Being out of Range sees smuggler BoShek helping
a woman in distress. He'd previously managed to stay under
the radar of the Empire, but this woman has ruined all of
that in a heartbeat. But it soon becomes apparent that he's
bitten off way more than he can chew.
Array is a Han Solo tale that sees our hero having to
outwit a pretty nasty bounty hunter - that is unless he wants
to be delivered to Darth Vader.
Skywalker opens with a group of rebels landing on a remote,
unnamed planet. It's not supposed to be inhabited, so they
are a little surprised to discover some graves. And, when
they also stumble upon a crashed ship, all the signs are that
someone, or thing, survived the crash and is lurking in the
three tales are linked by the fact that they contain characters
who are not what they seem. Once you know this fact it soon
becomes obvious what the twist in the tale will be. That's
a shame, because all three stories have something to offer,
but sticking them all together means that all you get are
three takes on a similar theme.
I didn't find this release as enjoyable as previous volumes,
it's still well worth picking up.
