Reactions and Reviews: Issue 2

The Star Wars crossover stories are rather nice. Leia, Han, and Luke interact first with Servalan and then with the rebels, but they're not exactly their "real" selves. Instead they are artificial beings created by the Clonemasters to help save the rebellion. Since no real person would have the qualities needed, they turned to fictional characters for prototypes. It works! [2]
