    My guess is the third issue will seeSergeant Kreel and his Elite Squad of Stormtroopers dispatched to mess with the rebels. I look forward to seeing the potential stand off. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 25, 2016

    While the big picture is elusive at the moment, and its connection with the Kreel storyline from the previous issue, it's definitely fun to reconnect with the gang all together here. We've had them split off for a bit and a few other things going on so seeing them all working like this is definitely enjoyable. What wins me over the most with this issue isn't the story, though it's fun in a light kind of way, but rather the artwork. Molina and Milla are nailing it as Marvel continues to bring some great talent onto these properties for the most part, making nearly everything feel like a strong gem of a work. The book simply looks great from top to bottom and I can't get over just how much more engaging it is because of it. Read Full Review

    Bottom Line: Jason Aaron is still putting his trademark spin on seemingly straightforward premises, making for one of the best Star Wars comics a fan could ask for. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 29, 2016

    I definitely enjoyed this issue for what it was, which was basically a big space battle. Those are always fun and Jorge Molina's action scenes were beautiful. If you're a fan of the movies, I don't see why you wouldn't enjoy this title. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 31, 2016

    Classic Star Wars fans should have fun with this one getting to see Luke, Leia, and Han Solo (along with Chewbacca, of course) all working together. Throw in a space battle, Rebel subterfuge, and a heist storyline (something I'm always on-board with) and you've got an enjoyable single issue which you wouldn't necessarily have to read the rest of the arc to fully enjoy. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Aug 28, 2016

    Jason Aaron does have the voices of these characters down. It is the closest thing we have gotten to the movies themselves. The interaction between Han, Leia, and Luke is pitch perfect. My biggest issue with this series has been how it so often lacks stakes. When you know where everything is headed it can be challenging to get invested. This issue does not have that problem because I become transfixed the sheer guts of this story. It is so crazy it just might work and I am certainly sticking around to see if it does.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 24, 2016

    While Jason Aaron and Jorge Molina don't seem to be in any great hurry to further the story of Sergeant Kreel and his SCAR Troopers, this issue offers plenty of the adventure and character banter that have made this series such an enjoyable read. Molina's epic space battles are a treat to behold, though his more exaggerated character designs don't quite fit in with the artists that have come before. Read Full Review
