Star Wars Adventures #22

Set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi, "A Matter of Perception" takes Princess Leia, R2-D2, and C-3PO to the planet Nothoiin where Rebel Intelligence has reported sightings of Stormtroopers and are worried they might discover what the Rebels are up to in that sector.

When Leia chases an Aleena Youngling, who just stole some supplies from the Falcon, she runs straight into a squad of Stormtroopers. However, after getting their butts kick (Princess-style), the Stormtroopers turn out not to be the enemies Leia was looking for but new potential allies for the Rebellion.

The issue also includes another "Tales from Wild Space" with the short but sweet "A Tauntaun Tail" featuring an unlucky Tauntaun picked on by both other Tauntauns and a Wampa before finding a home with the Rebellion. Both stories are fun and keep with the family-friendly nature of the comic, and if you didn't love Tauntauns before just wait until you meet this one. Worth a look.
