I got my first issue of the Star Wars Rebels magazine! YAY!! It has two comics, one Kallus-centric and the other (my fave) a Sabine-centric story where she lets herself be captured by Zygerrian slave-traders in order to bust up the slave ring from the inside.
(SPOILERS FOR THE SABINE COMIC: The best part is that it’s a spur-of-the-moment thing so she doesn’t tell Kanan and Hera what she’s doing, and so the rest of the Ghost crew is trying to figure out what’s happened to her when she doesn’t come home. At the end when they’re finally all reunited Kanan is pretty much torn between “YOUNG LADY DON’T YOU EVER SCARE US LIKE THAT AGAIN” and “hey, nice work ending that slave ring” and it’s kind of hilarious.)
There’s also a centerfold pin-up of the Grand Inquisitor (which, uh, weird choice) and this gem:
I’m a little torn about “Hera gives Kanan the support he needs,” because, on the one hand of course she does, but on the other hand “support” is not a really accurate or comprehensive description of the role Hera plays on the ship or even just in relation to Kanan. If I had to put it in one sentence I would say “Hera gives Kanan inspiration and direction.”
What I’m really focusing on here though is the Jedi boots. Jedi boots! @magesmagesmages, did you know about this? I remember you had a whole headcanon about his boots, how he’d had every piece of them repaired and replaced over the years, and that’s basically the only way he could still have a pair of Jedi boots, huh? It’s not you can pick those up at the galactic corner store.
In any case, I give the whole thing an A+ and am very happy with my subscription.
