After the destruction of the Death Star, the Rebel Alliance searches desperately for a safe haven to escape from the iron grip of the Galactic Empire. Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa investigate a mountainous world that could prove useful as a new base, only to discover all is not as it seems. On the run from imperial stormtroopers, Luke and Leia must make a perilous trip across an unforgiving landscape if they are to escape capture, or worse, at the hands of the Empire.

    While I wasn't overly impressed with the artwork for this. I did enjoy the story. Read Full Review

    I've enjoyed works from both creatives here before so it's fun to see them get to play in this particular space, both with it being Star Wars and also some much-needed all-ages material in the world of comics. The script for this doesn't dumb anything down and works plenty of dialogue, morals, and action all while showing the problems with a lot of it. Huang's artwork isn't going to be for a lot of people looking for the characters to look identical to reality but I love the style for it and the way it has a good flow and feel to their movement and all the expressiveness. It's a fun ride and a non-heavy version of the property to just enjoy. Read Full Review

    The dialogue between Luke and Leia is good and laced with nostalgia, as they both reflect on their home worlds, and they share a couple of nice moments during their journey. When the big battle scene comes, the snow troopers and their commander are as incompetent as usual in the Star Wars Universe, but its always great to see Leia blasting a few of them into oblivion.

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Sep 21, 2022

    The talent involved on this book is way too good for this simple pointless story. Cecil Castelucci as writer and Megan Huang at art understand how to craft a simple, fun action tale. But because it has no narrative impact within the larger Star Wars universe it feels like a wasted opportunity to visit the most powerful duo in the galaxy. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Sep 21, 2022

    For a story aimed at younger readers, Hyperspace Stories succeeds in delivering complex themes in a longer format than some of its peers, as the idea of remaining neutral in the face of tyranny is a heady idea to be tossing on young fans, yet this book managed to convey those concepts without being convoluted or pandering.
