Star Wars: Princess Leia (graphic novel) - Paul's REVIEW

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Princess Leia

Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Terry Dodson
Recent Release Date: November 3, 2015

Synopsis: When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire, she never betrayed her convictions - even after the complete destruction of her home world, Alderaan. When her rescue came, Leia grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire - the destruction of the Death Star! But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains...what is a princess without a world? As Leia comes to grips with her loss, a new mission leads her to the underground world of Sullust. The Empire is rounding up fugitive Alderaanians, and that doesn't sit well with their Princess! But what can one woman do against the Galactic Empire? They're about to find out! Join the galaxy's toughest Princess on a quest to save her people and rebuild her life!


Review: In Star Wars: A New Hope, Leia's homeworld is destroyed. Her family is gone. This graphic novel covers Leia's journey directly after the film closes. As many see her as an ice princess, she finds a way to lead her people while still fighting against the Empire. 

Evaan is first introduced in this comic. She is an interesting counter to Leia. I like how the new canon keeps taking Leia to Naboo. The stained glass Queen Amidala was very cool to see. 

I enjoyed this graphic novel. I hope Marvel continues making miniseries like this. I give this graphic novel a 5/5
