    Though not quite as accessible as it might be, this latest incarnation of Star Wars Legacy is a worthy follow-up to the old one and a solid debut for Hardman and Buchko. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 #1 is a solid first outing that will quickly catch up any new followers while smartly forging ahead in its own way. You could not ask for a better team than the one we've got and I can't wait to read what they do next. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Mar 20, 2013

    It looks like Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman have introduced me to a new favorite Star Wars character. Set over one hundred years in the regular Star Wars timeline, the sky's the limit with what can happen. With new characters, you don't have the feeling that you know which characters are guaranteed to be safe. The introduction of Ania Solo makes you definitely want to come back to see more. There is a benefit of having read the first volume of STAR WARS: LEGACY but since it is a Star Wars comic, you can pick up on what you might have missed. Read Full Review

    Star Wars Legacy adds yet another book to the excellent Star Wars arsenal. This one dives into the wealth of characters that were created in the previous series but sets up some completely new ones to follow. It appears this book is ongoing as opposed to a series of mini-series and if that is the case then this book is going to gain a ton of momentum quickly. I enjoyed the first issue and can't wait to see where Ms Solo heads next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 20, 2013

    At twenty-two pages, these Star Wars comics from Dark Horse continue to be a value, despite a slightly murkier start than some of Dark Horse's more recent offerings. That murkiness displays just how complicated the galaxy is and how sinister the Sith remain as Bechko and Hardman are meticulously building this new corner of the galaxy in "Star Wars: Legacy - Prisoner of the Floating World" #1.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Mar 22, 2013

    Kinda a dull first issue from a story standpoint, but with this creative team's track record, I think it's safe to stick with the title, especially because it looks so nice. Read Full Review

    Should you read it? If you're a die-hard Star Wars fan then yeah, you should definitely give this title a shot. If you aren't, then there are probably better titles to spend your money on, but I guess it really couldn't hurt to check it out and see if it interests you. I was really surprised at just how much story was in this issue, the writer really seemed to get a lot into this i, which really helped me to get into the story. I'll check out #2 next month and see where the series goes from here. Read Full Review
