    This comic is definitely a great all-ages comic, particularly for girls and young women, but I have actually been enjoying these stories just as a Star Wars fan, and I am really looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Arianna Florean bestows deep wells of emotion onto Rey's face throughout the book's thirty-ish pages. At times, Rey may have a case of the Disney doe eyes, but Florean uses them to express the determination, empathy and humanity that make Rey a worthy hero. All in all, this is a super cute and well-done installment in IDW's Forces of Destiny series. Read Full Review

    An average story with strong visuals. Mildly disappointing that not much can be done with Rey because of the films' lock on her. The visuals make up for the story, but not enough to warrant this being "Must-Read" reading. Read Full Review

    This is clearly not aimed at adults, but does provide a lovely little reminder of why we all got into this fantastic universe in the first place. Its also an absolute must buy to help convert younger siblings or children to the nerdy side of the Force. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Forces of Destiny " Reymay not dive too deep into the character or her hidden past, but Houser's examination of the loneliness she felt offers some nice insight into Rey's mind. The combined art from Florean and Matera gives the book a good look and feel, making this comic a story fans, particularly the younglings, will enjoy. Read Full Review

    This Forces Of Destiny Rey issue looks fantastic but is simply retelling the opening segment of Star Wars The Force Awakens, that could have been released 2 years ago. I really wish this had been an original story set just prior to the events of the movie, as the art style is fantastic, but was a huge let down since its feels like a missed opportunity.

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jan 12, 2018

    This is a great series, but it's a shame that the character that the target audience would most identify with right now gets the equivalent of a 20-page Little Golden Book. Read Full Review
