As I learnt from the blurb at the end-cover, Chewbacca got killed off in the New Jedi Order novel, Vector Prime. So this Dark Horse comic book is sort of a commemorative story of the history of Chewbacca, as told by Star Wars characters who knew him:

  • Chapter 1: Mallatobuck (Chewbacca’s wife)
  • Chapter 2: Attichitchuk (the father of Chewbacca)
  • Chatper 3: Ssoh (as told by a Wookie Slaver who had a run in with Chewbacca — and survived)
  • Chapter 4: Mala Mala (the bounty-hunteress who was saved by Chewbacca)
  • Chapter 5: Turrdko (a Wookie who’s the father of Tojjevvuk the albino Wookie killed by Chewbacca in Chapter 2)
  • Chapter 6: Wedge (as told by Wedge Antilles on an incident when he was a rookie pilot)
  • Chapter 7: Lando (as told by Lando Calrissian)
  • Chapter 8: Leia (she’s the Senator now, and interestingly the story she tells is something very human and mundane as jealousy…)
  • Chapter 9: Luke (his version alludes to how Chewbacca got killed)
  • Chapter 10: Han (he explains what he regrets not doing…)

If you’re remotely interested in Star Wars, you’d like this one.
