Star Wars #12

After getting all the recently-returned Rebel soldiers up to speed on recent events (including Kell Bircher's role as the Rebellion's mole within the Empire) the comic moves forward with Wedge announcing his plans to form Rouge Squadron, Prithi's decision to leave the Rebellion and return home to Chalacta, and Leia making a startling announcement about the Rebellion's new home... and that of her future husband.

Of all the big events in this single issue fans are likely to be psyched for the creation of Rouge Squadron, but my attention was directed at the sad farewell of Luke and Prithi (by far the comic's most interesting original character who I'm very sorry to see go).

As to Leia's pronouncement of her plans to wed and get an entire planet for the Rebellion as a dowry, while still having time to get into some sexually-tense moments with Han, we'll have to see what circumstances occur to throw a wrench into the proceedings and leave Leia free, years later, to marry a certain scruffy-looking nerfhereder. Worth a look.
