    This is a transition issue more so than an action installment. It's still really good, but doesn't have the same punch as the previous three issues. Read Full Review

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Jan 12, 2014

    I really enjoyedThe Star Wars #4. It's another great and weird issue in a great and weird series. I spend half of the time thinking how awesome this story is and how glad I am to be seeing it as a comic, and the other half glad that it wasn't the draft that made it to the big screen. The bottom line continues to be this: allStar Wars fans should checkThe Star Wars out! Read Full Review

    Now we are at the halfway point, the outcome is slowly starting to take form. Book four is solid read, and a good place to decide whether you'll see this plot out to the end. With artwork as captivating as always, and a newly assembled team (of sorts) made up of fun characters, Rinzler and Mayhew are doing themselves proud! Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Boyd Reynolds Dec 4, 2013

    The Star Wars #4 is packed with action and a familiar name, albeit with an unfamiliar face. The storys pace has quickened, giving fans what they want. When lightsabers are drawn, heads will roll. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Alan Shields Dec 3, 2013

    All in all though, the pacing of The Star Wars is being handled pretty well, and aside from that one death scene and a serious lack of menace from the book's villains, this is still the second best Star Wars book out there at the moment (after Brian Wood's main SW title). This is probably the weakest issue of the series so far, but The Star Wars is still managing to hold its own at its mid-point. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Dec 9, 2013

    The Star Wars is a great original idea for a comic series but it lacks several key elements that made the movies great. J.W. Rinzler does a good job with the material given to him and the artwork from Mike Mayhew is remarkable. However, like many first drafts, the Star Wars needs some reworking. It is nice to see what could have been but the comic relies too much on what is known from the movies. Read Full Review
