I’ll be honest, I enjoy Jason Aaron and John Cassaday’s Star Wars comic, but I decided to wait for the trade editions after the third issue. Okay, sure, all of this stuff is technically official Star Wars canon, taking place between A New Hope and Empire, but it’s not like they’re going to drop major bombs or anything, right? Like, oh, I don’t know, changing up Han Solo in some fairly important ways?
Yes, that would be Han’s wife. Who, understandably, is a wee bit upset with her hubby running around having adventures, and is apparently going to express her feelings with blaster fire. The rest of the issue is actually pretty great for Wars fans, featuring Luke and Boba Fett going at it, but this is the big-deal twist.
Keep in mind, Disney has made it clear everything they publish about the franchise now is official canon. So, yeah, Han was married, or at least separated, all through the original trilogy. One assumes that by the time of Empire, they’ve resolved this. But it does set up some questions about everybody’s favorite smuggler. Also how the Empire handles divorces, but we assume that won’t be gotten into.
And for anything else you may have missed on the web today…
