    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes May 31, 2014

    The Star Wars #8 is an awesome ending to an awesome mini-series. It's definitely been a weird story, but an awesome one. I know that it will never happen, but I would love to seeThe Star Warsget themovie treatment with this mini-series as a guide (art, dialogue, etc.). I don't prefer it to Star Wars, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. But, like I said, that definitelywon't happen, so it makes this mini-series all the more special. I loved everything about it. The only thing that I wish they would have done is give the mini-series a couple more issues. It seemed like the storywas a bit rushed at times and that there was more to tell that wouldn't fit into eight issues. Nevertheless, it was a still great mini-series. I recommend this issue and this mini-series to all fans ofStar Wars. I think I'll probably even buy the TPB or HC edition ofThe Star Wars for my bookshelf! Read Full Review

    A rushed ending, but I think that has more to do with George Lucas's original screenplay, rather than that of those at Dark Horse. A definite read for fans of the film and an interesting What If? for those curious. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Boyd Reynolds May 28, 2014

    Its not perfect, but The Star Wars #8 concludes the series with a bang. For those of us who slogged through the early issues of this series, fun has finally returned to the Star Wars galaxy, and not a moment too soon. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 28, 2014

    The Star Wars #8 is a solid close to what's been an entertaining ride. It carries with it some negative tendencies, but through the force of others the creative team manages to keep their literary journey in-check as we reach the final panels. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott May 28, 2014

    The Star Wars are the epitome of the empty stab at something. It makes noises about being about rebellion against establishments, which, for the time when it was written, that does make a lot of sense. But just because it makes sense doesn't make it good. It doesn't make it good by any means. Read Full Review
