Star Wars Adventures #23

The main story of Star Wars Adventures #23 takes place after the Battle of Endor and the destruction of the second Death Star. Wanting to spend a bit more time piloting the Millennium Falcon, and give Han and Leia some privacy, Lando persuades Chewbacca (who doesn't want to watch Han and Leia get all lovey dovey) into another mission. Being Lando, however, he fails to adequately explain the risks before getting the pair into trouble.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #6

The issue focuses on Buffy and Willow working together to complete to a quest to earn a soul tie to save Xander Harris from life as a vampire. Picking up more than halfway through the quest helps move the issue along. This path includes some physical obstacles for the pair, and an unexpected travelling companion, as well as a hard choice that may lay the initial ground for Dark Willow in the future.
