Star Wars: Princess Leia by Mark Waid, Rachel Dodson, Terry Dodson, Jordie Bellaire, Joe Caramagna


This is an interesting little adventure Leia goes on right after the events of A New Hope. With the Death Star destroyed, the Empire is looking for a new way to show their might: by eradicating all people of Aldaaran. It's turned into a full on holocaust. Leia gets word and decides to head out with a snarky rebel pilot who has little love for her princess, searching the galaxy for pockets of Aldaaran peoples.

It's an interesting story as Leia heads to places where her ties are deeper than she knows, and she has to face both her past and future as a princess of a lost world. I loved seeing the flashbacks and as she struggles to figure out what to do now.

I adored this comic. I loved how she had her snarkiness and her moments of vulnerability that had nothing to do with Luke or Han. She almost breaks a few times and is spitting fire others. I loved it, and learning more about a planet most known for it's destruction rather than what it was beforehand. I love how we see different peoples, especially since some have been away from Aldaraan for generations.

It's just a new little story that adds needed depth to the canon Star Wars. It's well done and all Star Wars fans should read.
