    Each story had too small a page count to properly introduce itself and capture us, but neither end on a big cliffhanger or significant enough event to really establish their stories. And the stakes of the main storyline remain muddled and a little artificial. Despite this, the quality of the world building, writing, and artwork leaves me curious to see what else may be revealed by the shifting sands of Jakku. Read Full Review

    The second story is pretty thin, but I'm pretty invested in the Rey story and it seems to be a bit more rooted in canon than the other stuff in the Star Wars Adventure has.
