Prisoner of the Floating World Part Two
Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 is a new series set in the Legacy era. The events depicted in this series take place “approximately 138 years after the events in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.” Legacy Volume 2 focuses on the character, Ania Solo, the great-great granddaughter of Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo. Young Miss Solo is also the owner of a junkyard.
As Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 #2 opens, Ania Solo and her friend, Sauk, a refugee from Mon Calamari, are on the run in the sewers of Carreras Minor. Meanwhile, the captors of Imperial Knight Yalta Val make him an offer they don’t want him to refuse. Then, a younger Imperial Knight, Jao Assam, starts to think that Val is in trouble, but now, he must convince the Imperial Court. Also, the lightsaber she found brings Ania more trouble, but AG-37 comes to the rescue.
THE LOWDOWN: My review of Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 #2 does not hold any new praises. The second issue offers more of the same, and ain’t it grand that issue #1, which provides the same, is so wonderful?
Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 creators, co-writer Corrina Bechko and co-writer/artist Gabriel Hardman, are spinning one hell of a Star Wars yarn. They have an excellent character in Ania Solo, and the supporting cast is pretty good, too. If Star Wars by Brian Wood and Carlos D’Anda is the best new Star Wars comic book in some time, then, Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 is determined to be more than next-best.
POSSIBLE AUDIENCE: Anyone who reads Star Wars comic books should try Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2.
