Young Wedge Antilles
I really like Wedge Antilles. This is a bit from "The Phantom Affair", an arc of the X-Wing Series comics known for really good art, which has a flashback to when his parents were killed.
Sorry, I'd write something witty and catchy, but nothing's coming to mind.
Wedge is negotiating with these small birdlike aliens over a superweapon they're said to have developed, and although the Mrlssti are on good terms with the New Republic, the Empire wants it too.
They get it done and the section on fire detaches. "We are out of foam, Jagged!" "Never mind, Zena, we did it!" The section falls towards the sun - we don't see it explode so much as recede, and their speech bubble sort of shreds. "Wedge? Do you hear me?" "Yes." "We love you, son." The last panel just has a little fire with the sun behind it.
There's another subplot here about Loka Hask and his pirate crew; the pirates showed Loka some eyeless octopus things infesting the engines, and a few pages later while Wedge was shooting at him Loka got into a space suit and fled, even though his pirates didn't have suits and died. Loka sucks like that. He started as an Imperial pilot, got kicked out for associating with pirates, and after this apparently the Empire took him back as a diplomat. Not a great call, Empire.
So yeah, that's a bit from "The Phantom Affair" that I posted on old s_d. Thinking about more x-wing posts. This series has its ups and downs, but I like it.
