Comics Review | Star Wars Adventures Vol. 6: Flight of the Falcon
Get ready to hunt the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy with Bazine Netal in IDW’s Flight of the Falcon.
Bazine Netal is after information about the Millennium Falcon. She’ll do anything to get her hands on it for her employer, even go on a wild Bantha chase. She traces the Falcon’s history of adventure as everyone from IG-88 to Embo tells her of a time they encountered the famous ship. Even Lady Proxima weighs in. Then it’s Hondo’s turn to talk as he’s now in possession of the Falcon, which Chewie left in his care. But we all know Hondo is always looking for ways to make some extra credits.

History of a Ship
We all know the Falcon has a rich history. This comic illustrates that perfectly (pun intended). We see characters from all eras cross pass with the ship: IG-88, Embo, Kallus, and more. This is part of the informal Flight of the Falcon series along with the previously reviewed Lando’s Luck and Choose Your Destiny: Luke and Leia.
Michael Moreci is a bestselling author of comics and novels. He’s the author of the YA Dick Grayson Graphic Novel The Lost Carnival, Roche Limit, and has written for Superman and Nightwing, as well as media tie-ins for the game Dishonored. Arianna Florean is a regular contributor to Star Wars Adventures. She’s also contributed to the Doctor Who comics. Moreci’s story treats the ship as its own character, which how I’ve always thought of it. Florean’s art is perfectly appealing to young fans. Her versions of the characters are instantly recognizable and the details aren’t over the top. Recommended for Falcon fans of all ages.
