This comic picks up right after the sobering events of Vector Prime by RA Salvatore, so it should absolutely only be read afterwards. The plot follows C-3PO’s search for stories about Chewbacca’s past to add to his memory banks. As he meets with characters from Han Solo to Princess Leia to Mallatobuck, each chapter offers a previously untold story about Chewie. Despite a slightly melancholy tone, readers will rejoice at the opportunity to learn more about the mighty Chewbacca’s heroics and, perhaps more importantly, his heart.
