Rodney Barnes another chapter that stays quite faithful to the episode. However, the book continues to give us a slightly different take on the episodes with the comics’ different take on the visuals, which is always interesting to see.
Without getting to hear the delivery of some of the more comedic lines of dialogue, there feels like there's something missing in this installment, as it instead embraces the adventurous spirit of the infiltration. Still, it's not that it's a bad interpretation, but rather falls short of capturing the charm of the series itself.
This is a really tough episode to adapt and writer Rodney Barnes and artist George Jeanty do their best to hit all the beats. But this issue feels very plot driven rather than truly giving us a feel for the characters and action which made the series so worthwhile. The opening with the Razor Crest and the conversation on the ship are well done but the remainder of the issue just flies by at the expense of tone and pacing. Hopefully this series can allow for more episodes to be spread across multiple issue rather than losing what makes this series so special.

As expected, the sixth issue of The Mandalorian comic series covers chapter six of the first season, titled The Prisoner. In case some of you don’t quite remember or didn’t read our concept art recap a few weeks ago, this is the episode where Mando teams up with some shady characters from his past to get some quick money, including Bill Burr’s character, Mayfeld.
The issue is pretty much a straight retelling of that episode. It doesn’t offer anything new bar maybe a couple of new lines, but they don’t offer any extra insight into Din Djarin or the other characters in this episode.
