    But Why Tho? - Adrian Jun 8, 2019

    While this issue does not provide the same kind of story with our titular heroes or provide new groundbreaking context to the Star Wars canon, I have to say that this was the story that I enjoyed more in this issue. Waterhouse provides an easily digestible story that is overlayed with a message that readers of all ages should hear. Further, Fleeces captures the emotions of Reebak in a way that made me want to reach into the pages and protect her from the tauntaun bullies. Reebak is the best girl and deserves all the love.

    The stories are fun, quick adventures with one story's visuals better than the other. It was neat to have Leia on an outing with the droids and I loved the tauntaun tale. I wasn't keen on the first story's art that came off as unfinished/hurried. Much more to my liking was the tauntaun tale, which was wonderful. All younglings will find this a fun read.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 11, 2019

    The issue also includes another “Tales from Wild Space” with the short but sweet “A Tauntaun Tail” featuring an unlucky Tauntaun picked on by both other Tauntauns and a Wampa before finding a home with the Rebellion. Both stories are fun and keep with the family-friendly nature of the comic, and if you didn't love Tauntauns before just wait until you meet this one. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime Jun 6, 2019

    This was a solid, regular issue of Adventures. Definitely what I expect and enjoy from the series on average. The next issue really will be set after Empire Strikes Back, about Lando and Chewie on the Falcon, so I'm definitely really looking forward to that. Beyond that, we know of a couple stories based around the sequel trilogy coming up that sound really interesting. Read Full Review
