    An adaptation of the Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show, this first chapter covers the major points of the first episode, which see a young Princess Leia being kidnapped by pirates in hopes of drawing Obi-Wan out of hiding. For better or worse, their plan works, as he retrieves his lightsaber, even if he was too late to save a fellow Jedi from the Inquisitors. This chapter manages to hit the major points of the story's introduction, but ultimately condenses moments that were both good and frustrating to audiences. For example, the book only offers glimpses of Obi-Wan's life of solitude, which viewers got more hints of in the TV series, though we also got a much more condensed version of Leia's kidnapping, as the more nitpicky viewers took issue with a young girl being able to appear more agile than full-grown adults. The art style does inject new life into the story, as the overall look of the TV show was quite familiar to The Mandalorian, while the art in the book is softer and more dream-life, seemingly to match the peace that Obi-Wan has attempted to embrace. While we won't expect to be totally blown away by this adaptation, even being able to somewhat competently capture the charms of the TV show is a good start.
