    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Nov 7, 2015

    "Star Wars" is a fun read. This issue has wall-to-wall action and it makes the comic book a great read. This comic doesn't have a big reveal or any deep plot development or characterizations and it doesn't make a bit of difference because the book is great anyway. When you think of what makes Star Wars great, its the creativity and the action and this comic has both of them. This is one of the best issues in the run so far. I highly recommend checking this comic out. Read Full Review

    An average continuation of a fumbling romantic story can't hold back what is an exceptionally executed action-packed issue that never breaks it's roaring pace. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 4, 2015

    This is yet another great installment in the best Star Wars series on the stands. It's always exciting much like the films, continues to have good character beats and is incredibly well paced. Dig it. Read Full Review

    Star Wars #11 was yet another amazing entry into this comic book expansion, with it reminding us just why we need such a story. Generating wonderful energy, as well as fabulous emotion, the creative team more than grabbed our attention, and I can only hope that Vader Down matches this, if not betters it. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 5, 2015

    Star Wars has worked for me for the most part with the ongoing series, though I've commented on how the other books have tended to work better. This arc feels like it's connecting in a better and more solid way, both in writing and with the top notch artwork from Immonen and Von Grawbadger, and it's resulting in a far more engaging work that flows better. This issue is still working with multiple stories – each of which is expanding in their own ways – while also playing with a mostly kind of obscure to your casual fan character with Dengar. Though he's never been a highly thought of bounty hunter, he does have his fans and giving him a bit more personality here is definitely a treat. Read Full Review

    Other than the lackluster reveal about the truth behind Sana Solo, this issue had a little bit of everything you want from a Star Wars tale. All of the mini plot lines are starting to come together, and this issue blended exciting action with some interesting reveals to make an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Aubrey Douglas Nov 19, 2015

    The border between movies and books blurs and is almost non existent here.Star Wars fans can enjoy this while waiting not so patiently for the next Star Wars movie to come out. This story is simple enough to jump right into, whether you are a newcomer or an aficionado to the universe. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Austin Gorton Nov 5, 2015

    One of the spectators expresses dismay that Luke isn't “the little green one” (obviously a reference to Yoda) while another suggests that Luke isn't even fit to be a Padawan, suggesting Jedi lore perhaps isn't as unknown and cloaked in mystery at this time as has been previously suggested (or just that patrons of Grakkus' arena are more in the know on this stuff than the average galactic citizen).

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Nov 16, 2015

    For the most part, the elements of Star Wars #11 cohere pretty well in this issue. Action is central to the story here, and those moments deliver on what was set up in the last issue. The surprise inclusion of Dengar is effective, even if the reader is unfamiliar with his role in the Star Wars universe. There is indication that The Empire, which hasnt had a big part in the recent issues of Star Wars, will become a bigger player, as they are on their way to Grakkus stadium. Overall, Aaron and Immonen put together a pretty good comic in Star Wars #11. Read Full Review

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault Nov 9, 2015

    From everything Ive heard most of Star Wars non-comics media, the first fledgling replacements of the once great Expanded Universe are a hot steaming pile of bantha poodoo. We comic readers have the Force on our side, apparently. Gillens Darth Vader is wonderfully cerebral, Ruckas Shattered Empire could have rightfully been called Episode VII, and Aarons marquee title will certainly play a role in one day in recompensing fans the loss of Legacy, Republic, and Tales of the Jedi from the Star Wars canon. This issue definitely helps towards that. Read Full Review

    This is an incredible issue. There is so much going on but it still unfolds so smoothly. Luke is battling, Han and Leia are doing their thing and Chewbaca and Dengar are in a big showdown. Chewbacca really stands out as a bad ass in this issue and the ending is killer concluding on a classic one liner.

    A fun, enthralling entry in the as of now excellent "Star Wars" comic by Marvel. Everyone is getting to the Smuggler's Moon, ready for the titular showdown, and Jason Aaron once again manages to write a passage issue in such a compelling way it's probably better than what it leads to. His C3PO is amazing, funny and strangely (but not awkwardly) courageous; Chewie was never that physical and menacing; Han, Leia and Luke sound just like their movie counterparts. And I didn't even talk about Stuart Immonen's stellar art, especially bright and strong in this issue. If anyone is still skeptic about Marvel's management of the brand, they shouldn't be.

    Immonen should be commended on this one. What a dynamic assembly of finely realized action sequences. Luke goes toe-to-toe with a Rancor-like monster from Mustafar named Kongo the Disembowler, Chewbacca dukes it out with a grizzled veteran bounty hunter, and the Gamemaster reveals he's not all he seems to be. But the real centerpiece moment of this issue is Solo. Two great character moments -- the first between he and a door (he thinks he's opening up to Leia, but she's taken off) shows the tenderness below all that gruff masculine exterior. And then of course with the final page. Which I won't ruin here. Great issue, even if it doesn't really go anywhere. Another user wrote on how this feels like a way to stretch out an arc's conclusion, and that's not incorrect.
