If you’re a Star Wars fan, you probably know who Max Rebo is. He’s the best musician and band leader in the galaxy far, far away. And now, finally, he’s getting his own comic book!
Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi – Max Rebo #1, published by Marvel Comics under the Disney umbrella, is written by Daniel Jose Older with art by Paul Fry and cover art by Ryan Brown. The comic book explores Max Rebo’s life, his band, and their connection to one of the most infamous gangsters in the Star Wars universe, Jabba the Hutt.
In the comic book, Max Rebo and his band are faced with a difficult challenge. Someone is plotting to kill Jabba the Hutt, and it’s not them. As we all know, Jabba has made a lot of enemies over the years, and sometimes those enemies are even under his employ. Max Rebo and his band have their own plans on how to deal with a mobster like Jabba, and their actions will lead directly into the events of the Return of the Jedi film.
The comic book is a one-shot issue that bookends the Jabba’s Palace one-shot, another Star Wars comic book published by Marvel. The Jabba’s Palace one-shot explores what happened after the Rebels rescued Han Solo from Jabba’s clutches and before the events of Return of the Jedi. It’s a great read for anyone who wants to know more about the characters that inhabit that universe.
The Max Rebo comic book is a great addition to the Star Wars canon. It’s always fun to explore the characters that we love from the movies in more detail. And Max Rebo is definitely a fan favorite. He’s a great character with a unique look and a cool backstory. The comic book gives us a chance to see more of him and his band, and to learn more about their place in the Star Wars universe.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, you definitely need to check out Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi – Max Rebo #1. It’s a fun and exciting read that will leave you wanting more. And who knows, maybe we’ll get more Max Rebo comic books in the future. One can only hope!
