"I think gay characters in particular can be quite stereotypical in comic books, they can be quite set. I remember the first gay character I saw was in a book called Global Champions, and he had giant hoop earrings , I remember thinking, even as a kid, this is outrageous. I just thought 'why not have a gay character who's the ultimate bad-ass.' I wanted somebody who was just cool and I liked the idea of a superhero who was being blackmailed, I thought it was quite cool to have a good guy who was being forced by the bad guys into helping them because he had a secret, but it had to pay off at the end, I didn't want him to be this negative character, I wanted him to be quite positive."

There are two distinct stories in this arc. The first has Leia, accompanied by smuggler Sana Starros, dropping vader's sidekick, the recently captured Dr Aphra, off at Sunspot Prison, the Rebellion's most secret pentientiary, where she can be kept until trial. And then there's a rather unusual prison break.... kinda

The second has Luke and Han going on what SHOULD have been a simple supplies run, but Han gambles and loses the money they were going to use to buy everything, leaving them flat broke in a dodgy neighbourhood.


An interesting ethical dilemma )

And we discover that a certain insult in 'Empire' might have a grain of truth to it )
