‘Star Wars: Revelations’ Glimpses The Future Of A Galaxy Far Far Away
by Tony Thornley
Star Wars: Revelations gave a massive glimpse into the future and readers will get a second chance to check it out with a special second printing out this week.
Written by Marc Guggenheim and illustrated by Salvador Larroca, Pere Pérez, Emma Kubert, Justin Mason, and Paul Fry, this special one-shot found Darth Vader deep in a vision in the fires of Mustafar. Some of these visions are of the future, while others are deceiving. Continuing to explore the era immediately after Empire Strikes Back, there are a lot of stories still to tell, and Revelations are just a hint of what’s to come.
Here’s just a few of the moments glimpsed in the one-shot:
· TONKA VS. BOSSK – Already unfolding in the pages of STAR WARS: BOUNTY HUNTERS #29!
· R2-D2’S SQUAD – What could R2-D2 possibly be doing with IG-88, BT and 000?! This couldn’t possibly happen…could it?
· APHRA KISSING DOMINA – But isn’t Aphra with Sana…?
· KYBER CRYSTAL CHOICE – Luke Skywalker faced with the choice of a green Kyber Crystal…or a RED! Could Luke lean towards the Dark Side?
· THE END OF ZUCKUSS – 4-LOM holds the lifeless body of his friend and fellow Bounty Hunter, Zuckuss.
· SABE BECOMES VADER – We’ve already seen Sabe suit-up in the pages of STAR WARS: DARTH VADER…but could she take the place of the Dark Lord of Sith?
· DARTH VADER LEADS THE HANDMAIDENS – The last time Darth Vader came face-to-face with the other Handmaidens it didn’t end well…so could they really team up in the future?
· HAN DUPLICATE? – How could Han Solo possibly be in two places at once? Unless one of them isn’t Han Solo…
· C-3PO MEETS HIS MAKER – C-3PO and Darth Vader go head-to-head! And C-3PO…wins?
· VALANCE VS. T’ONGA – The two friends a soldier couldn’t possibly be at odds…could they?
· IG-88 JOINS THE TEAM – One of the greatest Bounty Hunters in the Galaxy comes to join the Bounty Hunters team!
· QI’RA TRIUMPHANT – Qi’ra standing over a lifeless Palpatine in front of the Fermata Cage—could this be the true finale to HIDDEN EMPIRE?
“Now, we all know that the Force can be used to glimpse the present, the past, and possible futures,” Guggenheim told StarWars.com. “Well, The Eye [of Webbish Bog] is going to show Vader all of the above, including moments that will be coming into play in 2023 all across the Star Wars line. It’s our clever way of giving readers a preview of what everyone has up their sleeves for next year, but this isn’t a 40-page movie trailer. It’s a real Star Wars story with Vader at the center.”
