Solo #6

Solo: A Star Wars Story Adaptation #6 (of 7)

Solo: A Star Wars Story Adaptation #6 leads up to the end as Q’ira looms over Han but prepares for her deadly blow against Dryden. Lots of action in this one, and a little bit of new content. However, I’m not sure it’s enough to warrant a purchase.

The issue opens with Beckett, Han and Q’ira squaring off with Enfys Nest and her gang. This leads to some new content as when Enfys goes on to explain who Crimson Dawn are and why they’re so bad, we actually get some panels showing some Crimson Dawn thugs harassing people and the people fighting back. It’s only three panels though. The rest of the comic sticks closely the movie in both imagery and dialog. There’s a few alterations here and there, especially a line where Beckett mentions Val and Enfys being the death of her. Beyond that, nothing really worth mentioning.

The artwork is pretty good but there are a few things that can be odd and distracting. The likenesses are good, but there’s some odd things going on with the eyes. Some of the panels have the characters with bugged out cartoon eyes which looks really silly. Each time that happened, it threw me out of the story. There’s some great panels in the issue, and overall, they did a great job of capturing the look and action of the film. But those cartoon eye shots definitely hurt it.

With so little that’s new, Solo #6 really is for collectors and completionists. You could easily open it up at your local comic shop to take a peek at the new panels, and then put it back to save your money. There’s not much there that’s worth the cost. As is, I give it a two and a half out of five metal bikinis.
