This week's Star Wars #6 from Marvel Comics ended the series' inaugural arc with some big reveals that add interesting wrinkles to the streamlined official Star Wars canon.

Spoilers ahead for Star Wars #6

The biggest surprise in this week's Star Wars #6 (which takes place in official movie canon between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back) is no doubt the arrival of Sana Solo, introducing herself as the wife of Han Solo. This comes as a surprise to Han Solo's would-be girlfriend Princess Leia. While this issue ended before Han could retort beyond an "oh no" and perhaps clarify this surprising new development, it adds an interesting new facet to the Han Solo - and a new interesting character in Sana Solo. Sana was shown earlier in Star Wars #4 looking for Solo on Tattoine, although at the time she was unnamed and behind a mask.

The second major development of interest to fans in Star Wars #6 wasn't a surprise so much as an unseen part of the mythos that was finally officially depicted - how Darth Vader discovered that the pilot who blew up the original Death Star was in fact his long-thought-dead son, Luke Skywalker and who revealed it to him.

Finally, a third possible key scene from this issue revealed why Luke has returned to Tatooine and to Obi-Wan Kenobi's home during the course of this comic book storyline. Although he had to go through Boba Fett to get it, Luke and R2-D2 managed to recover what Kenobi left - his journals. Although enscribed with Star Wars' Basic language, the caption translates it as the Journals of Ben Kenobi.
