Star Wars #17 Preview: Luke's Daddy Issues Continue

Daddy issues. All the best heroes have them. Batman? His daddy was murdered when he was a child, driving him to dress up like a bat and assault mentally ill criminals, and then after all that, his daddy crossed over from a different dimension and tried to take that away from him. Superman? His daddy took Superman's son to space where he aged him up to a teenager, universally renowned as the worst kind of kid. Wonder Woman? Zeus is her daddy. 'Nuff said there. But perhaps the most well known daddy issues ever belong to Luke Skywalker, whose most famous quote involves screaming in terror after learning that his daddy is Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes back. And in this preview of Star Wars #17, Luke's daddy issues are following him everywhere… literally… as Luke tries to draw Vader away from Han Solo so that Leia, Lando, and Chewie can rescue Han and mess up the plot of Return of the Jedi. Will they succeed? Check out the preview below.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
