I love Archie Goodwin, I really do. He's one of the greatest writers ever to work in funnybooks, but everyone has a bad day. I know that half the problem with the Star Wars series is that Marvel was so hamstrung by Lucasfilm's controls and restrictions that story arc options were limited. That being said, there's really no excuse for something this bad. Han and Chewie are stuck in some sort of virtual space royal rumble, while all of the other character engage in extremely dull and overly wordy dialogue. I'll also point an accusing finger at Carmine Infantino. This is pretty close to the nadir of his career, and his work is extremely ill-suite to this series. The action sequences are poorly designed. I think I could draw a better Wookie. There's a cliffhanger ending, but it did not resonate with me, as I was simply happy to be done with this one.
