Star Wars: The Age of Uprising: Criticism of Heroes – I’m with the rebels.

The very first heroes of Star Wars embark on new adventures, but these missions are shorter than a Han Solo Kessel Race.

The “Age of” series is an interesting project within Marvel’s Star Wars comics. It is a collection of volumes that cover certain eras of the three trilogues of the canon, and the stories are told in it from the perspective of heroes and evildoers, respectively. The own slices of the antecedent trilogy, the Age of the Republic: Heroes and Villains, have already appeared in our edition of Sukits, and recently the following act has been performed in Star Wars: The Age of the Uprising: In the Image of Heroes – meaningfully from the stories during the classic trilogy version “and the Age of Resistance (the new trilogy) will also receive two chunky volumes in Hungarian translation over time, which will again divide the tale along the Light and Dark sides.

Star Wars: The Age of Uprising: So Heroes sends members of the world’s first (and perhaps most popular) hero squad back to the battle line: the brave Princess Leia, the villain Han Solo, the rubbed Lando Calrissian, and the noble Luke Skywalker also receive a- a short adventure – which originally appeared in separate booklets – and even included a special issue in the collection that includes two shorter stories. Let’s move nicely in line because there’s plenty to discuss.

Leia’s story immediately clarifies how the princess got ridiculed by the famous bounty hunter, Boushh. Even other prominent bounty hunters from the Star Wars universe show up, and Lando, who has been pickled, is finally pulled out of the slamm by the princess. This is a particularly good opening for the volume. Han Solo’s own mini-adventure then takes a little back from the pace. Here, it may have been mostly the creators ’goal to chew into our mouths, although Solo is a smuggler in his profession (i.e., practically a professional criminal), but he was actually fully committed to the cause of the rebellion. This, in turn, is only new to Star Wars fans born today, and others have confronted him a thousand times.

Lando Calrissian’s story, on the other hand, is a great guide to the reader that the all-shelled we might think would even sell his mother for a few stray credits is actually a benevolent figure with a perfectly functioning moral compass, and even the innocent. in addition to saving him, he decides that this will also mean complete financial bankruptcy for him. I was especially pleased to include Lobot, who is turbocharged with implants, who in my opinion is one of the most undeservedly neglected figures in the classical trilogy.

I think Luke’s chapter became the most interesting in the whole collection, as on the one hand it was underlined to us again that the Ruler was able to contact power users from any distance and whisper this in their ears, and on the other hand we could get a glimpse of what the young Skyw would have expected. when you sweep away the burden of leading a rebellion and rest on a farm as a happy retiree.

Unfortunately, I feel the special edition is a bit unnecessary, because although a tiny part of Yoda has been hit well and cleverly reflects on the Jedi Master’s former mistakes, the reasons for his exile, the second story of the Age of Rebellion Special has already caused a fierce headache. It’s basically a good idea to deal with rarely featured rebel pilots like Biggs Darklighter and Jek Tono Porkins (both lost their lives in the Battle of Yavin anyway, so it’s understandable why we see them only rarely in various Star Wars releases), but it may not be the best way to do that if they get an “vacation” adventure that the It would also be overly childish in Cartoon Network’s morning show – let’s say at least the drawing style is in line with that.

It’s the format that hides Star Wars: The Age of Uprising: The Pitfalls of Heroes, because while diversity is a good thing and it’s great that no single volume includes so many separate adventures, there’s not enough time or space to unravel any of the stories, so they stay so uplifted. at the level of which no one will strike. The quality is more undulating (the alternation of writers and illustrators explains the fluctuation by the way anyway) than, say, the Age of the Republic: It was for Heroes and Evildoers, but it still is a fresh spot in the sea of ​​other Star Wars comics. This refreshment only lasts for moments, but after that one at least returns to the mainstream with even greater desire.
