Star Wars Adventures #26

While, in theory, I'm all for more tales involving Luke Skywalker and Rey, the events of The Last Jedi don't allow much leeway or time for any such stories to take place. What writer Cavan Scott attempts to do is shoehorn a story during the small period of time after Luke has agreed to train Rey but before she has discovered the Jedi Master has cut himself off from the Force and she leaves to return to the fleet.

The story itself isn't bad, and offers a fun panel of Chewbacca dealing with the unexpected consequences of Rey unleashing the Force, but there's only so much that can be done in such a short period of time. And the art by Derek Charm doesn't do Mark Hamill any favors. (I hear the comic adds 30 lbs.) Still, the comic does offer a fun cover featuring Rey.

The back-up story, another Tale from Wild Space, features Resistance Pilot Tallissan Lintra helping out a lost pilot following maneuvers with her squadron. For fans.
