Panel Breakdown: STAR WARS #1 By Charles Soule And Jesús Saiz

Welcome to PANEL BREAKDOWN, a weekly series where we take a look at our favorite panels of a comic book. This week we are talking about the new Star Wars series written by Charles Soule, with art by Jesús Saiz, Arif Prianto & Saiz worked on colors, and Clayton Cowles added the letters.

The new series takes place right after Luke’s confrontation with Darth Vader in Empire Strikes Back. I was hooked immediately, and one of the main reasons was Saiz’s artwork. Powerful is the word that comes to mind with the combination of Saiz’s work and Soule’s words as you turn to the last page.


What did you think of Star Wars #1, did you have a favorite panel? Comment below with your thoughts.

About Star Wars #1:
“No…I am your father.”
In the wake of the events following The Empire Strikes Back, it is a dark time for the heroes of the Rebellion. The Rebel fleet…scattered following a disastrous defeat at the Battle of Hoth. Han Solo…lost to the bounty hunter, Boba Fett, after being frozen in carbonite. And after being lured into a trap on Cloud City and bested in a vicious lightsaber duel against the evil Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker…learned the horrible truth about his past. Vader did not kill Luke’s father Anakin–Vader is Luke’s father! Now, after narrowly escaping the dark lord’s clutches, and wounded and reeling from the revelation, Luke, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, the Wookiee Chewbacca, and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 must fight their way back to the Rebel Alliance-for the fate of the entire galaxy is at stake! After so many losses is victory still possible? But, what Leia, Luke, and their ragtag band of freedom fighters do not realize is that they have only traded one Imperial trap for another! Enter the cunning and vengeful Imperial Commander Zahra, at the helm of the Tarkin’s Will!
