It's not often that plot developments in Star Wars storytelling make news headlines, but sometimes things happen in the Galaxy far, far away that are just too big not to talk about. The latest Galaxy shattering revelation comes from the latest installment of Marvel's ongoing "Star Wars"Comic series, which was released today. Issue #6 deepens the plot of the series further, set immediately after A New Hope, focusing on Luke Skywalker as he journeys back to Tatooine and the home of his deceased Jedi Master Ben Kenobi. The issue also follows Han and Leia and features the introduction of a brand new character that has been turning quite a few heads lately. Read further with caution because we will be talking SPOILERS for Star Wars #6 from here on out...
The new character is a Woman named Sana Solo. As here last name implies, she is related to Han Solo. Their relation? She's Han's wife, or so she says. You can see her make the revelation in an excerpt from the comic below:
Understandably the reveal of this character sent shock waves across Star Wars fandom, many reacting negatively to the news. Was Han cheating on someone else when he (later) had a relationship with Princess Leia in the Original Trilogy? It's a legitimate question, but I think it's one we need to have patience in finding an answer for. This revelation is left unresolved in this issue, so we'll have to wait and read future issues to see where this goes. Han's got some serious explaining to do now, both to Leia and us fans.
So what do you guys think? Does this fit with Han's character and the overall Saga? Or is this a misstep for the comics? Let us know in the comments below, or in Club SWU!
