This is one of my favourite books right now and I'm sad it's not continuing! I missed Nadia a bit in this issue; Janet isn't quite as funny. But on the flip side, it was great to get to know Janet a little bit more, and it was a very sweet issue.

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.
