    Star Wars #10 reminds us just why it's the best year to be a Star Wars fan, as despite the upcoming release of The Force Awakens, you have this amazing comic to look forward to. Giving us a gripping series of developments this issue certainly raises the tempo for things to come, with Vader Down having a lot to live up to. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Oct 12, 2015

    With ten issues under their belts, Aaron and editor Jordan D. White prove they were a great choice to shepherd the "Star Wars" universe back to Marvel Comics. Each arc has shown off the franchise's ability to serve different types of stories, with Aaron using a single arc to play a space adventure, a buddy cop comedy and a gladiator epic all-in-one. By the time Aaron introduces a dumb Gungan to the Chewie-Threepio plotline, readers can practically hear the fun the writer is having with the series. "Star Wars" proves the power of the medium and is a must read series for fans of the franchise. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Oct 9, 2015

    At this point, this is one of the most consistently clean written books in the game. If you're reading these reviews and you're not reading this book, I'm going to start questioning your commitment to this relationship. Read Full Review

    Fanboys Inc - Jeff Ayers Oct 27, 2015

    This issue brings each of the two major plots to the forefront, without having either vying for space. Jason Aaron is an expert storyteller, and he proves it by having both Luke's plight and Leia and Han's adventure gain equal billing. Also, the good cop/bad cop duo of C-3PO and Chewbacca is a gold mine that needs to happen more often. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 8, 2015

    The addition of Chewie and C-3PO increases the enjoyment factor of this little story plus the Luke storyline gets more interesting. If you aren't reading this series you're missing out on some key backstories! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 8, 2015

    In the end, a fun book that's moving towards a good climax, albeit one that just reinforces to Luke that he needs to get himself trained properly and soon. Read Full Review

    IGN - Oct 8, 2015

    Jason Aaron keeps the plot of Star Wars moving at a bristling pace -- tossing in unexpected twists and turns at regular intervals -- while Stuart Immonen uses his smooth, energetic style to make strange aliens and TIE Fighters more beautiful than they have any right to be. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 9, 2015

    While Star Wars #10 doesn't move at a breakneck pace, it doesn't mean it isn't an entertaining chapter in this in-between-episodes saga. Jason Aaron and Stuart Immonen are an all-star team and I'm very interested in what they have in store for us with issue #11. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Oct 13, 2015

    Star Wars, under the helm of Aaron, Immonen and Von Grawbadger continues to be an excellent read, capturing the feel of the movies with some fantastic stories that will keep fans engaged until and after The Force Awakens hits before the end of the year. Itll be very interesting to see what the creative team has in store for us next month. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Austin Gorton Oct 12, 2015

    Threepio refers to Artoo at one point in this issue as a “thermocapsulary dehousing assister“, a throwback to the early days of licensed Star Wars fiction; that was the term first used to describe Artoo's job (before the now more common term “astromech droid”) in the New Hope novelization, as well as issues #1 and #19 of the original Marvel comic book series.

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault Oct 10, 2015

    This art is the issues saving grace. The adventure on Cymoon 1 which started this series out felt like the true immediate follow up to A New Hope that 1978s Splinter in the Minds Eyehad always wanted to be. It was more than just another entry in the ever expanding Star Wars canon; it was, for all intents and purposes, Episode 4.5. Showdown on the Smugglers' Moon (and issue #10 particularly) in contrast, is like so much of the now discarded Expanded Universe; a fun diversion, but hardly essential. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Oct 13, 2015

    As far as middle issues go, Star Wars #10 is not bad. Its a nice read with some funny moments and quality art. However, its also a little bland in its efforts to get to the next stage of the plot, which means its a wasted opportunity to do something more interesting. If youre reading Star Wars from Marvel Comics, youll probably get Star Wars #10, but you could also skip this issue altogether without missing too much. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 14, 2015

    On the plus side Chewie and C-3PO's adventures are quite entertaining, I like the design of Sana's ship, and Star Wars #10 does offer Star Wars nerds a cameo from another bounty hunter foreshadowing more trouble for Solo before this arc comes to a close. For fans. Read Full Review
