Bravo Dark Horse. Bravo.

Star Wars Rebellion issue #10 is a solid ending to a really neat story line. Vader finally catches up to Wyl Tarson and well Tarson makes an interesting decision.

It’s not one that I would have expected – and the way that the art portrayed the action was just great.

Not only was it a great storyline but of course as great stories do – it has left alot of open questions – is Raze dead? Is Tarson?? and what about the Hub ? Has it been compromised?

The Ahakista Gambit story arc really heated up in issue #9, while of course issue #8 with the great Vader cover was impressive, most impressive – as well.

As i’ve said before in the previous reviews in this arc – yes this is pulp – but its engaging and a fun read.

Only problem now though is that Dark Horse has put the title on hiatus until December – so it’ll months before we see anything new in this line.

Sure Star Wars Rebellion is Star Wars pulp – but it’s good pulp and

I LIKE IT.

Issue #9 has a great panel flow that really captures the traditional Star Wars flow of multiple things happening that then come together.
What makes this current story arc so engaging is our ‘hero’ Wyl Tarson is a scumbag two timer that is now being two timed double crossed himself.

And since he’s a minor Star Wars universe character he can easily die too which makes the ending of this arc also interesting.

This is the third issue in this story which left off in issue #8 (also awesome). Issue 10 will see all this wrap up.

Will Tarson’s head EXPLODE? Will the Imperial hub EXPLODE?

And whose arm/leg/head will Vader hack off with his angry Sith Lightsaber?

Star Wars Rebellion has been a tough series for me to get into for a simple reason.
The issues don’t seem to come out regularly (ie. monthly) so i haven’t been able to get them and keep track.

THANK GOODNESS FOR TRADE PAPERBACKS.

Star Wars: Rebellion Volume 1–My Brother, My Enemy collects issues 1-5 of this difficult to collect series. It takes place in the period between Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back and introduces another link from Luke Skywalker’s past.

It’s not brilliant stuff but it is very readable and good to look at. I certainly enjoyed this comic though i’m not sure that i’m going to go out of my way to try and find upcoming new issues when and if they ever do come out.
