    With this book being geared towards younger readers, we can forgive the rudimentary art style, especially given the effectiveness of the overall story serving more as a moral lesson about embracing elements of the Light Side of the Force than as a complex or nuanced journey. Read Full Review

    Stories aimed at younger readers can always be challenging if you're not in that bracket and I'm glad that things are being made for them with a property I enjoy. Because you had a lot of similar things to this when I was a kid when the original film first came out in the years that followed. This story is pretty basic but it just does a few things that rubs me the wrong way in general and it made it harder to connect with. I do like seeing Chewie and Rey building a bond here and all, but beyond that there's not a lot to really latch onto. Read Full Review

We are getting throwaway stories with thin plots, barely recognizable characters and no stakes. Even a comic designed for kids needs to make readers care about the characters, conflicts and outcomes.
