Star Wars #34

Temporarily leaving behind the battle between the Empire and the Rebellion, Star Wars #34 offers a fun adventure with the unexpected team-up of Sana Starros and Lando Calrissian. The former ropes the later into a complicated con involving the selling of stolen Imperial blasters to multiple buyers including space pirates, Hutts, and even the Empire itself. Her quick thinking and manipulation of each situation can't help but impress her fellow scoundrel (even when she puts his life in danger). Sadly, for the lovable scoundrel, Lando will never see the payday for all his help.

While the comic certainly shows off the skill-set of Sana, it does make you wonder how she's managed to stay alive so long double-crossing every one she comes across and making enemies wherever she finds them. Lando's involvement offers some fun back-and-forth between the pair, but when you boil the story down it's obvious he's not really needed for Sana's plan. Still, it was fun to see the scoundrel again, and the pair do make for a fun team-up. Worth a look.
