The Rundown: Lando must betray the rebellion in order to help a friend.
A quiet night for the rebel fleet takes a dark turn when Lobot awakens in the night and slices into the systems of Admiral Acknar’s ship almost causing the cruiser to fire on their own fleet. When Lando awakens and realizes Lobot is the cause, he stops his friend but cannot tell the rebels what happened out of fear of what will happen.
As Lando confronts his past with Lobot, he decides that there is one droid in the galaxy that might be able to help Lobot. Unfortunately, that droid was sold to Jabba the Hutt. Unable to tell the rest of the rebels what happened, Lando takes the Falcon in a desperate attempt to help a friend.
The Story: Admittedly, I am not particularly excited about this ‘Dark Droid’ storyline, but Soule does craft an entertaining distraction and test for Lando in this issue. The story has some great moments for the character and I liked seeing the friendship and loyalty Lando has for Lobot. I like that the story will bring the action back to Tatooine and I look forward to seeing where it goes.
The Art: Musabekov delivers some beautifully detailed and awesome art that brings the reader back into the world of Star Wars brilliantly with immersive imagery.
