Synopsis:
Han Solo is given a top-secret undercover mission for the Rebellion: rescuing several informants and spies! His cover for the assignment? Only the biggest and most infamous starship race in the galaxy, the Dragon Void! A tournament he has dreamt of winning his entire life. With a chance of glory, can Han keep his mind on the mission? Or is failing Leia worse than losing? If that wasn't enough, there's also the small matter of finding a traitor within the Rebellion. As the Dragon Void heats up, can a certain Wookiee pal lend a hand in the mole hunt? Place your bets for the ultimate space race! Our money's on Han and the Millennium Falcon - after all, it's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs!

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

This Han Solo book is what happens, when you take a laughable premise of a space race including its one mystic philosophy (and a wannabe Yoda standin), but add to it a writer who at least tries to make this brainless mess readable and add people who make the art awesome. Too bad the characterisations are all over the place, it is like the authors at Marvel do not know who Han Solo is, maybe they should rewatch the movies again. Marvel's atempts at seriousness are mostly corny, and their attempts at humor are childish, they only seem to get Vader and his master right.
So you have atrotious plotting and great art and yet another mostly forgetable tale of our heroes doing strange things, things not directly corelated to the war against the empire, in order to advance the war against the empire. This might be interesting if we would get some day to day adventures, the true hardship of fighting the empire, but no... spectacle over story... it must be amazingly hard to squeeze another brainless tale out of Star Wars.
The only advatage to Marvel's addition to the new canon is, that it could be so easily erased from it, because at this point I believe we either reboot this right now, or at least jump ahead to Hoth in the timeline and try not to "ef" this up yet again.

Rating: 3 / 5
