    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jul 9, 2014

    Star Wars #19is an easy comic to grade because when I closed its final page I was grinning. The narrative was whimsical enough to just take me back to my childhood as that fact remained relevant. With that in mind the first part of this arc earns praise, attention and the right to be highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Nevin Jones Jul 10, 2014

    While this is a comparatively slow issue for Star Wars, the character moments function well, we get to see IG-88, and it introduces someone who I hope will be a new running character and who will help give more backstory with Leia. Any fan of the series so far will want to pick it up. If you love Star Wars, you should be reading this comic. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 2, 2014

    Much like Boom Studio's terrific Darkwing Duck series, another Disney property doing well is forced to end to be gobbled up by Marvel. No doubt Marvel will be more interested in putting out a Star Wars comic, but will they find a creative team as invested in these characters? I have my doubts. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Jul 9, 2014

    The internal thoughts and struggles that Seren expresses about her time deep undercover act as an effective hook into the story. The issue didn't feel like it moved things forward very much from where it started, but it does set the foundation for a good finish to Dark Horse's excellent run with this franchise.

    This run is the last great Dark Horse contribution to the Star Wars property, and I'm already sad to see it go. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - John Newby Jul 9, 2014

    One final note about Star Wars #19 is that I quite enjoy the art style provided by Carlos D'Anda. All of the characters have a very unique appearance while still slightly resembling the actors from Star Wars. D'Anda's work is just the thing to set the issue apart from other versions of Star Wars.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 10, 2014

    Brian Wood opts for a smaller, more intimate story with this new arc, which is just what the series needed after the troubled marriage storyline that just wrapped up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 9, 2014

    This series continues to be tremendous fun, and "Star Wars" #19 opens up the universe once again, adding some details to Princess Leia's childhood. It's not hard to imagine Wood crafting this script around an assortment of action figures and toys in his backyard using IG-88 instead of the same old Stormtroopers and gray clad Imperial officers. I just hope Marvel is paying attention to these comics so "Star Wars" comics can continue to be this much fun. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Jul 12, 2014

    It is an interesting decision to take four of the classic and beloved characters of Star Wars lore and throw them together on a mission while also introducing two new characters. Perhaps this adventure can get Wood to wring some more vitality out of Han, who has been rather dull in the most recent arcs of this series. It would also be good to see Luke start to develop the confidence that he shows in Episode V. What this issue reveals about Seren Song is not exceptionally fascinating but a deep cover operative in the Empire is a promising background, so she may start to deliver some interesting elements in Star Wars #20.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jul 9, 2014

    So whilst this book isnt the greatest issue of Star Wars ever, it reminds us what were going to miss when this title ends with a solid installment that mostly entertains. Most people who have stuck with this run are probably going to pick up these last two anyway for a complete collection regardless of the review, but for those that remain undeceive Star Wars #19 is worth your time.

    Big Comic Page - Lewis “Daft Vader” Campbell Jul 9, 2014

    As this is a new arc within the series, si don't be afraid to dip in if you haven't followed the series. Issue 19 is a good read with a pacey story and the right mix of new ideas and nostalgia, emotional struggles and humour. I recommend it. Read Full Review
