Star Wars #30

Led by the journals of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker's journey takes him to an unnamed planet in the Vagadarr System where he will cross paths with Garro, who still holds a grudge for Yoda's interference on the world decades before. Seeing Yoda's adventures in flashbacks, the Jedi Master uses the Force to restore balance to the planet by reanimating the Giants of Living Stone.

Fueled by years of bitterness since the Jedi Master left, Garro has seen his world transformed in ways he never imagined and decides to take that anger out on Luke, hoping to strip the pilot (who he mistakes for Yoda's student) of his power to finish off the rock creatures and restore order to his world.

The comic turns on an odd note, which I'm not sure is properly set-up or executed by writer Jason Aaron leaving an unsatisfying conclusion to the arc. Other than that, the storyline proves an interesting way to tie three generations of Jedi together in a single tale. For fans.
