    Overall, it's an awesome start to a very promising series. I'm very much looking forward to seeing more of it now that the setup is out of the way and we can get more of the characters. Read Full Review

    Nice to see the remaining heroes together on a mission. This does get me excited about the next film, though I'm keeping my hopes low after Episode VII. This book's story is good, the characters are fun, and the visuals great. I'm looking forward to more of this tale. Read Full Review

    This four-part series gets off to a great start reminding us of the First Order threat while delivering on Star Wars themes we've come to love. Star Wars: Allegiance is a great mix of new and old in what makes Star Wars so great. Read Full Review

    I'm excited to be able to start filling in the blanks between the two films " which ought to be fertile ground for books and comics " and to see what comes afterward. This is a solid start as Ethan Stacks captures the tone and seriousness well while having just enough humor mixed in without going overboard. I've praised Luke Ross more time than I can remember at this point about his Star Wars work and this one is definitely solid. Read Full Review

    As a prelude of sorts to the Rise of Skywalker, I was expecting an original story. I didn't get that at all. I feel like I'll never get that time back that I spent reading this issue. Read Full Review
