    Star Wars #23 probably won't be every fan's cup of tea. This issue pushes the series in a sillier direction even as it maneuvers Han, Luke and Leia into conflict with the SCAR Troopers. But ultimately, the humor is a clever way of exploring the sexual tension between Han and Leia and making the most of the limitations imposed by the time period. Read Full Review

    All in all, it looks as if the story is moving towards a crescendo. A showdown between the Sarge and Luke Skywalker seems to be inevitable.  Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 29, 2016

    With a decent chunk of this book focused on what Han and Leia are doing it ends up just spending too much time in a place that's not all that engaging or well done. I like what we get with Luke and Leia in setting this up, the fun of Threepio and Sana, and even some of how Sana and Luke work together. But with the race taking up the space it does combined with not feeling like Molina's artwork is as strong as it was in the previous couple of issues it just leaves me feeling pretty bland about this installment. It ends with a lot to make me hopeful, though, and anticipation for the next installment is definitely there as I know that Aaron can pull it off. Read Full Review

    Hampered by a change from the high gear of last year to cruise control and some inconsistent art, Star Wars #23 is certainly enjoyable, but finds it impossible to shake the idea something doesn't sit right. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 4, 2016

    The current arc began focusing on Sgt. Kreel and his elite Stormtrooper squadron. The end of this issue brings events full circle as a deadly distraction provides Kreel and his men entry to the Star Destroyer to begin their mission to take back the Imperial property. For fans. Read Full Review
