Comic Review: The Star Wars #4

Check out my reviews of The Star Wars #1The Star Wars #2 and The Star Wars #3.

The Star Wars #4 continues Annikin and Luke’s quest to save Princess Leia — in the most juvenile manner imaginable. I rolled my eyes twice before I got to the end. This was a fun excercise, but I wish Rinzler would have taken even more artistic liberty. The Star Wars screams of the time the screenplay was written: when men were men, women learned to hush their mouths and pout, kids were stupid, and dads died coughing and telling their sons how much they made them proud.

I enjoyed the first issue immensely, and two wasn’t so bad, except for the punching Leia part. I didn’t really enjoy three, and now I find myself bored with issue four. If something doesn’t pick up in issue five, I may have to give up on The Star Wars.


General Skywalker and Jedi-in-training Annikin Starkiller have a deadly encounter with mounted Stormtroopers! An encounter with outlaws in a cantina leads to a meeting with smuggler Han Solo! And a Jedi makes the ultimate sacrifice to save one of Princess Leia’s younger brothers!
