Star Wars Adventures: Flight Of The Falcon One-Shot Comic Book Review


“Star Wars Adventures: Flight of the Falcon” closes out this story arc.

“Star Wars Adventures: Flight of the Falcon” is the last installment of this multi-media storyline. In this Michael Moreci scripted tale set after the “Pirate’s Price” novel, we find Hondo and Mahjo together on Batuu still. The main story finds Hondo (who is borrowing the Millennium Falcon from Chewbacca at this point) deciding to race Bala-Tik for credits and to see what the Falcon is really made of. Of course, this race isn’t exactly what it seems.

The Flight of the Falcon storyline has flown under-the-radar in comparison to other recent SW novels and comics, but if you’ve been following it like I have, it’s been a pretty fun ride particularly given the fact that we get more Hondo characterization (which is always a good thing). At any rate, the story itself in this one-shot issue doesn’t have a ton of depth, but what it does have is tons of ties to the forthcoming Galaxy’s Edge along with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” This issue and the Falcon arc in general really rewards the Star Wars faithful with so many geektastic references and easter eggs. For that reason alone, it’s well worth checking out.

The combined talents of artist Arianna Florean and colorist Mattia Iacono works wonders here with an art style that is a cross between a Disney animated film and anime. The result is a colorful and beautifully drawn issue filled with detail and perfectly created character models.

As usual, the comic also contains a cover art gallery along with IDW comic ads.
