This was good This felt like it could have been a movie The stakes seemed high, the character portrayals were good and the art seemed to bother me less in this arc Gillen writes good Star Wars comics Something about this latest Star wars run annoys me At times its amazing, the artwork is always good, however the story is like a wave but it never seems to stop being a wave So many ups and downs I hope this comes to an end soon and they reboot it because I m not sure where they will end it. Betrayal at the heart of the Rebel Alliance puts their entire fleet at risk, as Darth Vader and the Empire close in around them With the Falcon out of commission and no way to communicate between ships, can a last ditch gambit by Princess Leia pull their fat out of the fire, or has the Empire struck back earlier than expected Oh, that s like it Gillen s Star Wars has been building steam since it started and this arc is absolutely brilliant All six issues, including the extra sized issue 50 take place in the space of one battle, and the energy and urgency couldn t be apparent There are enough moving parts to make it both believable and exciting, and I love how Gillen has ingratiated yet another new character into the Star Wars mythos without even trying I m literally expecting a Queen Trios mini series to be announced any day now Even Larroca s artwork seems to have improved, to the point where it s not glaringly obvious photobox tracing no one draws space battles like him, I ve decided Also included here to a less enthusiastic response is Annual 4, which is kind of just okay It tells two parallel stories featuring Luke and Sana Starros, who never actually meet and don t even influence each other s adventure, while Darth Vader turns up for the sake of it, and it s all just kind of eh The Mcguffin of the story isn t explored enough to be interesting, and the art s kind of all over the place thanks to the shared page count between Ario Anindito, Roland Boschi, and Marc Laming who don t gel very well together.Hope Dies might be the title of this volume, but my hope for this series does no such thing If this is the shade of things to come, I m excited to see what s around the bend. This volume contains Star Wars Hope Dies Part I VI, Star Wars Annual 4, and the mini comic Shu Torun Lives The volume is structured where Shu Torun Lives appears between Hope Dies Parts I and II The Hope Dies arc follows a secret Rebel base that may no longer be a secret, and for the sake of the Rebellion, Han takes the Millennium Falcon up against the Empirealone The base was meant to have a celebration, and a certain ruler of Shu Torun, Trios, makes friendly with Leia A mistake It is Trios, who values her people and planet over all others, that infiltrates the base, gains Leia s trust, and exposes their base to the Empire Shu Torun Lives is a short background to Trios s choice to betray the Rebellion and save her own people, even if some of her own must be sacrificed for the greater good Star Wars Annual 4 takes place before Star Wars 8 and features Luke Skywalker and Sana Starros Vader seeks some old Sith lightsabers Sana finds one hoping to seek a profit, Luke comes across the other, and Vader brings down all in his path to get what he wants As Luke grows stronger with the Force, he might just be able to pull off a strong defense.One of the things I really enjoyed about this volume was the space battle action and the betrayal Trios giving away the secret Rebel base really hypes of the risk and energy of the volume The red and orange color scheme makes the reader feel like a part of the heart pounding action, and the reader is at the edge of their seat waiting to see how the Rebellion will squeeze out of this rather tight situation This is a very fast pace, high stakes volume, which is a nice change of pace. Gillen s first arc was the dark, literally post Rogue One side of Star Wars, and his second was the caper Now, the widescreen epic, as the might of the Empire is unleashed against the Rebellion s nascent fleet You might think this was the natural direction for Star Wars comics to take, given there are no budget limitations on the page but you do have a budget limitation of pages, and space battles take up a lot of space Still, Gillen s been at this long enough to make it work, fitting perfect character moments and retcons which feel like the way things always should have been of course that s why they re called Rogue Squadron in amongst the explosions Nor is Larocca any slouch at transferring it all to the paper screen Exactly the sort of thing one expects from a Star Wars comic, which isn t always a compliment, but here very much is. Now this is like it Tight plotting, humor that s acutually funny, and FINALLY art by Salvador Larroca that isn t offputtingly photorealistic all of these add up to make Hope Burns the best arc of Marvel s Star Wars series since Rebel Jail If this is what we can expect of from Gillen and Larroca going forward, then I m one happy camper. I don t know how I ended up following this comic through 9 trades, but here we are The art isn t great, belying a lack of passion all around, and most of the time, the storytelling is pretty bland But this 9th installment did better on the story side A great story of betrayal and Rebel gumption, with everything from space battles to sneak missions and lightsabers In fact, the set up to this story arc reads almost like a competent and plot hole free version of The Last Jedi How do you trap a whole fleet and keep the pressure on while the rebels try desperately to survive Look no further than this trade.
