Star Wars #23

Following the events of the last issue in which Luke, Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbacca were able to successfully steal a Star Destroyer from under the Empire's nose, Star Wars #23 is a goofy follow-up issue whose focus is split on the crew working to make repairs to the starship while Han and Leia devolve into petulant children arguing who exactly is the ship's new Captain. Somehow a race across the length of the Star Destroyer (in which both parties cheat) becomes the only way to solve the impasse.

While not focusing on Han and Leia's race through the ship (which is exactly as ridiculous as it sounds), the latest issue allows Luke and Sana to spend some time together, and takes time to flashback to the origins of the unorthodox Rebel plan.

The current arc began focusing on Sgt. Kreel and his elite Stormtrooper squadron. The end of this issue brings events full circle as a deadly distraction provides Kreel and his men entry to the Star Destroyer to begin their mission to take back the Imperial property. For fans.
