    Though I've kind of see-sawed on this storyline depending on what's going on in this particular moment, this issue does a lot of fun things and keeps it moving. The Queen is still too much of an enigma and it lacks a certain weight in terms of story for why all of this matters, though hopefully the Rur aspect will factor in better once we get past this storyline itself. I like what we get out of pretty much all of the cast across the board, though once again I have to single out the droids for being so delicious, particularly with Triple-Zero calling Beetee a Death Star on wheels. That's just perfection. Read Full Review

    "The Screaming Citadel" is clearly heading for a tremendous, satisfying climax, as the whole team is loving bringing Gothic horror to the Star Wars universe. Read Full Review

    Star Wars #32 does a wonderful job of setting up the final part of this amazing crossover, as despite not being quite as epic as I was hoping for, it was captivating nonetheless. The various developments throughout this penultimate chapter also leave us plenty to look forward to heading into Doctor Aphra #8, with the final page sure to excite. Read Full Review

    Bottom Line: Aaron has been very good to a storyline that really doesn't deserve the fanfare that Marvel tried to sell. All the things that make a good Aaron book are all there so it's not bad, per se. It's just…why? Read Full Review

    Many overly familiar story elements and mixed visuals make this a middling installment for "The Screaming Citadel." I'm hoping that this saga concludes in better fashion. Read Full Review

    Salvador Larroca's Star Wars work has always been mixed at best, but lately his reliance on photo-referenced figures (especially those pulled directly from the original Star Wars movies), is becoming a huge distraction. Read Full Review

    This whole story doesn't make any sense and it feels like they are making a huge effort to find adventures for the Star Wars characters between the New Hope and the Empire Strikes Back narratives. But they are such good characters to have around, and I have such a great time reading the series that it kinds of make me forget of everything else.

    Doctor Aphra and her murder droids are the two best characters in this comic. Which is fine by me. I still find myself a little disappointed with the artwork on the faces. Otherwise everything is good. I haven't enjoyed this crossover nearly as much as Vader Down but I'm still interested to see how it ends.

    The "Vader Down" crossover was really good, as was the "Screaming Citadel" one-shot, but this crossover has kind of fizzled out, in my eyes. This issue was okay, but I think I would have preferred this to be a Luke/Aphra solo team up story, without dragging in the supporting casts. I think the underlying problem is that Jason Aaron's "Star Wars" hasn't been consistently good in a very long time, leaving me to think he's running in place regarding interesting things to do with this property.
