Star Wars #4

   I have to admit, I'm impressed with the new Star Wars comic so far.

   The art by John Cassaday is tremendous. He captures the likenesses of the assortment of heroes and villains well, along with the "real" feel of the Star Wars environments.

   The art is a perfect complement to the story by Jason Aaron, which has amped up the tension and the action, pitting a young and inexperienced Luke Skywalker against Darth Vader, and managing quite a few genuine surprises along the way.

   This issue is actually a bit more introspective than most, as the heroes recover from their deadly (and explosive) encounter last issue, and they plot a course for upcoming issues.

   Luke must confront his shortcomings as an untrained Jedi, and Princess Leia must find a way to keep attacking the Empire.

   It's as simple as this: if you're a Star Wars fan, you're going to love this comic.

Grade: A-
