Star Wars #24 Review
Summary: The story of Zahara finally reaches its end. If anything makes me want to get back to the Crimson Dawn storyline or even the adventures to get back Han before Jedi it would be this storyline.
The storyline with Commander Zahara finally comes to a conclusion with the Tarkin’s Will destroyed when it crashed but not before the commander used the exhaust to most of the Rebels in the base on the planet. She wants a one on one fight with Leia and threatens to transmit their location to the Empire if she does not get it.
I am glad this story is finally at its end as it went on for a bit too long for my liking even with all the events of the War of the Bounty Hunters and now the Crimson Dawn storyline Darth Vader would not tolerate one of the Imperial commanders going off on their own like this for so long.
It was also a satisfying conclusion as Leia puts her cards on the table how she feels about ordering the destruction of the Death Star and the many lives it cost. She does say she did not get any joy out of that decision unlike Zahara who enjoyed making people suffer so she gets left to “a fate worse than death”.
Now hopefully the main story can get back to more of the adventures the main gang has before the events of Return of Jedi lead them towards Jabba’s palace.
Worth it if you have been following the story all this time. If you are only coming into this particular storyline now maybe wait until next issue.
