Chewbacca #4 goes full throttle on the action and double dealings as Zarro and Chewie try to take down Jaum. As Zarro keeps saying, they have a plan. But will it work? Suicide droid – check. Disguises – check. Being captured by scout troopers – okay, new plan.
The issue begins with Zarro and Chewie heading for the spaceport. Their plan is to confront Jaum. While readers know about the astromech full of explosives, the real surprise is Chewie’s disguise. Firefights break out with Jaum, his Shistavanen friend, and a whole bunch of Imperials. I really liked the flow of the action, the bits of humor, and especially Zarro’s quick wit in lying to everyone. It made for a fun issue.
The art is on par with the rest of the series with its bright, colorful panels, clean lines, and attention to detail. The layouts do a good job of conveying the story visually. There’s no confusing panels and the flow stays smooth throughout. The also compliments the light hearted tone of the story.
In the end, Chewbacca #4 is a fun issue. It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s fun. The artwork is good, the story is enjoyable, and it works. I give it a four out of five metal bikinis.
