Star Wars #10

Separated into three stories, Star Wars #10 gives us Luke Skywalker captured and thrown into gladiator combat on Nar Shaddaa, the unlikely duo of Chewbacca and C-3P0 playing a version of good cop/bad cop for information about their missing friend, and Han Solo stuck between Princess Leia and his "wife" Sana Solo while fleeing from the Empire.

There's strong foreshadowing here that writer Jason Aaron is already walking back the controversial reveal of Han Solo's previous marriage (which drew the ire of several hardcore Star Wars fans). As for Luke, the comic mostly teases us with what's in store for the future Jedi Master in a comic that feels every inch of a middle issue of an ongoing arc.

On the plus side Chewie and C-3PO's adventures are quite entertaining, I like the design of Sana's ship, and Star Wars #10 does offer Star Wars nerds a cameo from another bounty hunter foreshadowing more trouble for Solo before this arc comes to a close. For fans.
