lol :D I prefer the approach where I vote with my wallet, and inform the publishers that the books that they make aren't good.

I'm thinking of also dropping "The Star Wars", but instead I might just skip the zero-issue.

I'm continuing to enjoy this series. Although I'm glad they finally moved forward with the overall story.

The reveal in Issue #11 does need a bit of clarification. I'll have to go through the previous issues and see how it plays out now that we know the secret.

I usually only buy trades, so I'm looking forward to that one coming out for sure. I need to start my read-through of the ANH - ESB timeline to figure out how to make everything fit.

I'm still in on this story, like you all I'm glad they wrapped the Mole line up. Plus the art work continues to be absolutely top notch

I read issue #12 and I was pretty happy with all the closure we finally got. The characters had some good dialog, the art was nice, and Wedge finally formed Rogue Squadron. I haven't been enjoying the series that much lately, but this issue rekindled my interest.

I'm not following the story - which marriage is this? Or is it a new one?

It's a new one. Some random governor on a sparsely populated planet that they want to use as a rebel base.

To be fair, Han gets around too. I'm pretty he and Perla had a thing on Coruscant.

I mentioned this in my review of #12, but I really hope we are not getting a rehash of Courtship of Princess Leia. I trust Wood as a writer to do something better than that.
