Chewbacca takes center stage in the latest issue coming to the rescue of the Imperial officer Leia rescued last month whose codes the Rebellion desperately needs. Although initially not impressed with his Rebel contact, who he sees as little more than a dangerous trained dog, the Imperial officer soon gains grudging respect for the Wookiee who puts his life on the line to reach the destination where the code can be transported back to the Rebellion (and to Han Solo stuck in a cell awaiting its arrival).
Star Wars: Rebel Heist #3 continues the trend of the series of letting the newbie narrate the action from his/her perspective allowing Chewbacca to shine without attempting to translate what exactly is going on in Chewie’s mind at the time.
Next month adds Luke Skywalker to the mix and should also put Han Solo back in play as the final issue of the mini-series will hopefully put the various pieces together and reveal just what the Rebellion deems so necessary that they’ve sacrificed some of their very best to get the job done. Worth a look.
