Solo #4 begins the hyperspace jump to Kessel and ends with them leaving the planet and running into the Imperial Star Destroyer coming down the maelstrom corridor. The story sticks very closely to the movie with no bonus scenes and just a few tweaks on the dialog. If you’ve seen the movie, there’s nothing extra here to pick up on. This one is purely for those who have to have the comic adaptations of the movies.

In capturing the movie in comic form, it does a good job of condensing the story down into its essential elements. The artwork is good, but it’s nothing extraordinary. The writing sticks close to the movie, so there’s no extra rewards there. It’s a very safe, by the book adaptation that gets the job done well. The question is – do you really need this? Personally, if I didn’t have an annoying habit of wanting to review everything Star Wars, I would have skipped this one. It’s not something I’ll ever read again, nor is it something I really needed to own.

So unless you’re a die hard collector, you can skip Solo #4. I give it a two and a half out of five metal bikinis.
