Star Wars #13

The "Vader Down" crossover continues with both Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader stranded on the desolate planet of Vrogas Vas with others searching for them both. While Luke falls victim to Aphra and her droids, leaving Han and Chewbacca to ride to the rescue, the Dark Lord of the Sith fights his way through every obstacle the Rebellion throws his way letting nothing deter him from finding young Skywalker.

Star Wars #13 not only reminds us of a classic Han Solo quote from the original Star Wars about why one should never upset a Wookiee but it also provides some nice back-and-forth between Aphra and Han until Luke regains consciousness.

This issue marks the halfway point of the six-issue crossover arc. Not surprisingly we get far more of Han and Luke than we do of Darth Vader. That said, the Dark Lord of the Sith makes a memorable appearance at the end of the issue coming across a familiar face and setting up the next story in the arc. Worth a look.
