While they may not have expressly said it just yet, you can tell that the heroes of Marvel Comics' "Star Wars" have a bad feeling about everything going on right now. As depicted in"Star Wars" #8, written by Jason Aaron with art by Stuart Immonen, Han Solo and Leia Organa are hiding out from Imperials on an unnamed planet with one surprise tagalong -- Han's "wife" Sana. Things went from painfully bad to ridiculously worse when a squad of TIE Fighters burst through the planet's atmosphere with the trio in their sights.
Luke Skywalker's not having a pleasant time either; after fighting off Boba Fett for possession of the diary of Ben Kenobi, Luke's made it his mission to travel to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Of course his quest for a pilot didn't go so well, considering he scouted for help in the seediest part of Nar Shaddaa, the Smuggler's Moon. All that action leads us into "Star Wars" #9, which drops on September 16th.
