Star Wars (2014) #68

Jul 12, 2019

This issue presented a refreshing start to a new story arc after a good, but exhausting arc that preceded it. Having it clear that the series is staring to build toward Empire Strikes Back adds an element of anticipation as to how it will all come together. The one thing this series does very well that a lot of Star Wars tales miss, is the heavy inclusion of the droids. They are the backbone of the original films, and should be a big part of the story. This new arc seems primed to give us more of that. It's hard to ignore the art and writing style change, but this first offering was a good indication that the feel of the films will carry on.

Star Wars (2014) #70

Aug 13, 2019

As lackluster as these past two issues have been, they follow many classic elements of typical Star Wars adventures. This arc feels a lot like the old 70's/80's Star Wars comics by having three separate stories play out simultaneously, unfortunately so far to its detriment. Hopefully all the set up will have a payoff now that all players are in a place for more galactic conflict among the stars.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #34

Jul 22, 2019

This issue is a typical mid-arc story. Its main purpose is to simply put the characters together with a common goal that will build to the climax. It will be interesting to see what Aphra's motley new team will go through before this arc is done, and with the preview of the next issue showing Aphra smirking in an Imperial uniform, things are bound to get more complicated before they there.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #35

Aug 25, 2019

This was an all around great issue. It was fun, it moved the story along, and everything looked fantastic. The ongoing Star Wars series could learn a thing or two from Aphra. Well if it wasn't ending in a couple months, that is.
