    We don't get much in the way of action here, other than Luke's reckless flying that eventually gets him grounded by Wedge, but the comic doesn't end before we get a brief hint of the darker intentions of the royal house of Arrochar suggesting how the storyline may play out. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I have mostly good things to say about this issue, but it just didn't blow the proverbial skirt up. But we don't give out half points on this site. I tend to round up anyway. I was never very good at math. Anyway, I've reached my decision. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Mar 12, 2014

    Star Wars #15 doesn't re-write the book on intergalactic affairs but it certainly does maintain a strong footing. Due to the strength of the script it easily earns a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Mar 13, 2014

    Issue 15 continues a very well told saga. Its certainly for fans only, just like any other Star Wars book would be, but its not steeped in any confusing continuity and if you are familiar enough with the films, you could easily jump in at this point. Now that Disney owns the Star Wars rights, we wont have this excellent book much longer, so grab it and enjoy it while you still can. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Mar 13, 2014

    So a bit of a tepid affair this month in Dark Horse's main Star Wars title. The characters are still strong, the art is much improved and I have a feeling that things are not as they seem concerned Leia's upcoming nuptials. That's enough positives for me to keep on reading, but this issue is not going to be remembered as one of the stronger ones in Brian Wood's run. It's not going to impress anybody new to these comics, and anybody giving it a high rating is probably being a bit too kind to something that they love, and will always love. The big question of course is whether or not will they still be in love when Marvel gets their hands on it? That's something for the future, but for the time being make the most of Dark Horse's Star Wars titles whilst you still can. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Boyd Reynolds Dec 31, 1969

    Star Wars #15 is a letdown. It offers more political posturing than action and intrigue. Missing as well is artist Carlos DAnda, who brought characters from the original trilogy to life. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Mar 18, 2014

    That the Star Wars license for comics went to Marvel could not have been a total shock to the creators on Dark Horse's Star Wars comics. So now all of these titles have a final act to prepare. This means, though, that there are limited issues and wasted space within those issues just isn't wise. Star Wars #15 isn't a wasted issue but it is a slow one that isn't quite as thrilling as many of the recent issues have been. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Mar 12, 2014

    The story, on the other hand, is a bit of a let down. Let's hope that this was all just an overly dense setup for what will end up being another great story arc for the series. Read Full Review

    Hopefully this arc will veer in a more unpredictable and less creepy direction, but for now it marks a low point for the series. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Mar 18, 2014

    Are there any redeeming elements thatStar Wars #15has to offer? A few. The highlight of the book is the training run of the Rogue Squadron through the Arrochar canyons. With so many missteps by Brian Wood here it's almost refreshing to have a good X-Wing mission that reminds us that we're reading aStar Warsbook and not something from another franchise. However, things are going to have to change, and quickly – for this book to be as good as it once was. If it was a lesser writer than Brian Wood it'd be doubtful that he'd be up to the task of salvaging this book. However, given the work that he's put out in the past, there's always hope.

    If you're a long time Star Wars fan, I can't see how you'd rave over this issue. Read Full Review

    A great single issue which delivers the characters, developments and action we expect. The art is solid quality, along with a talented colorist, making this series kind on the eyes. Im happy and excited with a plot outside of the franchise, which is rare for me. Good things are coming, even if they may be bad for the rebellion. I highly recommend this series.
