Star Wars 15: Star Duel! is the fifteenth issue in the Marvel Star Wars series of comics.
Plot summary[edit | edit source]
With Governor Quarg killed and his jamming equipment disabled, Crimson Jack's battlecruiser is fully operational and waiting for Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon to leave the surface of Drexel so Jack can exact some revenge. Jolli engages in a dogfight with the Falcon which results in her Y-wing and the Falcon becoming disabled. Although Solo appears helpless as a result of the damage, he forces a personal exchange between himself and Jack when he reveals that Chewbacca erased Jack's navigational charts while on board his cruiser. Meanwhile, Jolli is requesting assistance because of damage sustained in the earlier battle, but Jack dismisses her, focusing instead on how to get back at Solo. Angered by Jack's response, Jolli fires on her former allies and rams her ship into the battlecruiser, killing the crew and herself. While Jack survives the blast, he's still bent on killing Solo, but in the final duel between the two, Solo ends up killing the red-bearded pirate with a blaster.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
In this issue Luke claims to not know how to swim while Leia appears to be a capable swimmer, but in the novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye the reverse is true. This contradiction proves to be rich fodder for many readers' letters in subsequent issues.
