    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 20, 2016

    The journal material for Obi-wan Kenobi is the ideal kind of buffer book for this series and is the kind of work you wish more ongoings could figure out how to do right. This standalone episode builds upon past ones but works without reading the previous ones being a requirement. Jason Arron has managed to do some good stuff here again in showing more of the toll of this assignment on Obi-wan and I love the expansions on Beru and Owen as well – and a nice nod to Luke and his flying abilities. I haven't been a huge fan of Krrsantan so far, but this installment is definitely winning me over to him more and is going to have me reevaluate my past interactions with him. Here's to more installments of this in the future, and a lot more Mike Mayhew artwork as well either in this or other series as he's a strong addition to the Star Wars lineup. Read Full Review

    While a full title Obi-Wan story arc would be a fantastic road for Jason Aaron to go down, Star Wars #20 still functions as an entertaining stand alone tale that connects just enough to the main story to not feel completely disposable while still offering a decent enough jumping on point for new readers before the kickoff of the next arc.

    A damn good looking, fun (though slightly unbelievable) entry in Ben Kenobi's journey through life after the prequels. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Jun 22, 2016

    The first instance of stories from Ben Kenobis Tatooine journal was a surprising and excellent comic. While the newness of that angle is less present with Star Wars #20, its still a good issue. Its also true that the overall quality of the series has risen since Star Wars #7, so while that issue was much better than preceding issues, Star Wars #20 has tougher comparison with strong recent issues of Star Wars. Its still on par with those, but it might be good for Aaron to give the solo Kenobi stories a rest or tell a longer and more complex story in the next outing from the journal. Read Full Review

    It takes a certain suspension of disbelief to picture the monotony of the Lars homestead being broken up by so much death-defying action, but all that really matters is that Jason Aaron delivers another entertaining script Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Arron Ferguson Jun 15, 2016

    Though a little stagnant on the story-front, and a little lacking in motion in the art- Star Wars #20 is the third beautifully painted fun diversion from the main story in the time of Old Ben's exile that celebrates the lost art of a great one-shot. Read Full Review
