Star Wars: Rebel Heist #2 Review

Join the Rebellion! We do not discriminate on the basis of species, sex, gentry, or planet of origin! 

The official description from Dark Horse:

On a planet outside the Empire’s jurisdiction, Princess Leia goes undercover to obtain a vital code from an Imperial source. She’ll have to use disguises, gadgets, and her feminine wiles to succeed—and her only ally is another spy who is convinced the Princess is a liability in the field!

* Covers by Adam Hughes and Matt Kindt!

The beauty and action of this part of the story is perfectly portrayed by this fine set of creators. And if you didn’t have a thing for Leia before, you just might at the close this issue.
