The Rundown: With his connection to the Force in flux, Luke begins a mission to create a new lightsaber.

After returning to the rebel fleet, Luke continues to struggle with his tenuous connection to the Force and a damaged lightsaber that is completely unreliable. Going through the Jedi texts that he has, he realizes that his lack of connection to his weapon might be part of the problem and resolves to create a new one for himself.

Luke and Artoo travel to a planet that might have a kyber crystal he can procure. As he negotiates with the barkeeper for information, a mysterious woman comes in guns blazing telling Luke she’s there to help him. As Luke finds it hard to trust the young woman, she reveals that she knows someone who can help him with his crystal problem.

The Story: An entertaining adventure for Luke that fills in the moments between Luke losing a lightsaber and creating a new one. Soule goes for more lore in the issue and has some great connections to other elements of the Star Wars universe. I like that the story is focusing on Luke and the concerns he brings up to Leia before beginning his mission are valid ones that I know I had as a fan. I like seeing them fleshed out in this series.

The Art: Musabekov delivers some great visuals throughout the issue. The art has a great style filled with gorgeous details and world building.
