    Rodney Barnes continues to do a fairly good job of adapting the TV series to comic book form. So much so that he manages to capture the parts of the stories that I only vaguely remember really, really well. An example is the conversation between Din Djarin and Peli Motto who introduces Din Djarin to the Frog Lady. Another detail I had forgotten was how Frog Lady used the remains of IG-11 as a form of universal translater so she could talk with Din Djarin and guilt him into stilling to the bargain that they struck.

    Overall. This continues to be a faithful adaptation of the hit Disney + TV series, which brought many older fans back to the Star Wars universe and I look forward to the next issue.

    In hopes of finding more Mandalorians, Din Djarin accepts to transport a woman across the galaxy in hopes of reuniting her with her husband and giving her eggs a shot at survival. As things tend to go in this franchise, this is easier said than done, as a run-in with The New Republic forces them to touch down on an icy planet, which is the least of their worries when it comes to hatching eggs. In comparison to the live-action version of this story, the “Frog Lady” doesn’t hold quite as much charm when she’s illustrated as opposed to being brought to life in an endearingly absurd way, but her exotic look shines through, as does the frigid locale that is visited in this chapter of Din Djarin’s journey. Especially given how many episodes and issues of the series are spent in dusty and arid environments, this chapter gets all of the major narrative points across as the art helps break up the monotony of the otherwise straightforward adaptation of the Disney+ show.

    The Passenger was probably the most maligned episode of The Mandalorian‘s second season, accused of being a “filler” episode when everyone was expecting the show to kick on and find new Mandalorians for Din to interact with. What fans got instead was a self-contained adventure, with Din and Frog Lady racing to survive a night on a frozen planet with hordes of deadly spider creatures.

    Even though the episode didn’t move the plot along, it did provide a lot of entertaining action during that escape sequence and some hilarity as Din demanded that Grogu stop eating Frog Lady’s eggs. All of this remains in the comic, and the story told in the original episode feels almost better suited to this medium.
