    Aaron is doing comics a great service with this book and Lenil Francis Yu finishes his run strong. The title of this story arc really should have been, "Star Wars is back at Marvel where it belongs. Deal with it." Read Full Review

    “Rebel Jail” has been a masterclass in how to tell an effective, gripping STAR WARS story in comic book form. STAR WARS #19 is the peak of this series' success, delivering great character drama, a genuinely surprising reveal, and the fun that you should expect when reading a Marvel comic written by Jason Aaron. The art is fantastic as well; Yu was the perfect choice to illustrate this story arc, and hopefully he's brought back in at some point. STAR WARS is a joy to read, and a book that stays at the very top of my pull list each month. Read Full Review

    This issue serves as a terrific character study of Leia. How far is she willing to go for the Rebellion? Will she compromise her ideals when lives are on the line? Aaron explores these questions in a big way while also tying this arc back to an earlier chapter of his Star Wars saga. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 26, 2016

    Bringing the arc to a close, the creative team here has delivered another solidly enjoyable and fun story with some good moral areas tackled as well as they can be within the constraints of the franchise itself. This arc did some good stuff in exploring what they do with prisoners, showcased some great design work for the station and its environment, and delivered a fantastic running series of events for Leia, Sana, and Aphra to be involved in. When you separate out a character from the rest of the usual cast and work them with series-original characters there can be some weird dynamics that simply don't work. But here, Aaron is able to find the right balance between them all to make it feel right, adding a layer of richness to all of them so that they all feel like they fully inhabit this grand universe.

    Okay, Marvel, you tried a different look for this flagship book. Like the visuals of the Lando series, they didn't work. Let's call it even, and never return to this type of art. Why? I'll never read this story line again and will try to forget that I ever read this in the first place. Read Full Review
