    Anyway, thats my take on it. Its a pretty good graphic novel adaptation, especially for younger audiences. If you havent already got the Marvel one, or you were looking for an adaptation of Rogue One that was more suited for all-ages, this is definitely a good pick for you. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Dec 13, 2017

    The screenplay for the Rogue One film was written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy (from a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta), and Alessandro Ferrari and the artists of Star Wars: Rogue One Graphic Novel Adaptation have done these writers proud. I hope this creative team gets the chance to do a graphic novel adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and I am sure I am not the only one waiting to see what they can do with this new Star Wars film.

    The film has been well adapted within 75 pages without sacrificing much of its scenes, there are a few omissions but they tend to cut out the less important content and focus on the scenes that fit the medium more. This will make a fine addition to the collection of Star Wars graphic novels available from Disney Publishing including The Prequel Trilogy, The Original Trilogy and The Force Awakens all available in hardcover format.

    AIPT - Charlie Chipman Dec 12, 2017

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Adaptation works well enough as a comic book, but the story doesn't wow nearly as much on the page as it did on screen. Fans who have seen the film won't get much out of this read, and fans who haven't seen the movie yet...well, they're better off just watching the movie. Read Full Review
