The Star Wars #2 cover

If you picked up the first issue to J.W. Rinzler and Mike Mayhew’s The Star Wars then you already have probably added The Star Wars to your pull list at your local comic book store.  If you think all the good stuff was included in the first issue, then you’ll be happy to know the action and excitement doesn’t wane with Issue #2.  In fact, after Issue #1 required adequate room for the introduction of characters, Issue #2 beams forward with non-stop action.  If you missed Issue #1 check out our earlier review here then run to your comic book store now to get a copy and see what all the buzz is about.

Middle-aged Jedi General Luke Skywalker has a heightened sense that everything is wrong on the planet Aquilae.  Appealing to the king for a declaration of war against the Empire, he draws trepidation from the peace-loving royals.  What does the future hold for Skywalker, his new padawan, and his protectees?  Luke Skywalker never looked better and Annikin Starkiller may very well be your next favorite Star Wars character.
