    While not the strongest issue in this defining run by the great creative team of Jason Aaron, Salvador Larroca, and Edgar Delgado, this Yoda tale comes off surprisingly well, weaving a story of the legendary Jedi Master that reveals the character's deep empathy, sorrow, and humility.  Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 30, 2017

    Though not as strong as the first part where the focus was on several characters, giving us some Qui-Gon time as well, Star Wars digs more into the Yoda story and it's definitely intriguing. It's a huge galaxy out there and so much to explore so I'm definitely happy to dig into the past more, something that hasn't been done much since the relaunch of the expanded storytelling. Aaron still captures the tone and dialogue well but it's Larroca that really makes this book worth reading as he gives us an engaging Yoda story with all the right trappings and looks.

    Jason Aaron made a brilliant decision is using these journal entry intermissions as a way to take a breather from the main story in Star Wars. Each one has been wonderful as he fills in the time gaps of the Star Wars canon. And with more being written and released almost every week, being a Star Wars fanatic in this day in age such a fulfilling experience. Read Full Review

    We Got This Covered - Tom Bacon Jan 25, 2017

    Jason Aaron takes the chance to once again demonstrate his tremendous world-building skills, and Salvador Larroca is perfectly on-point as an artist. Unfortunately, the book's core conceit - Obi-Wan Kenobi's journal - is increasingly at risk of creating major continuity problems. Read Full Review

    While this issue might have fallen short (get it Yoda) there is stillpromise that the next few issues will pick up both from the writing side and the art aspect. Yoda is in a vulnerable state and will have to do some soul searching in the next issue on his way to the Heart of the Mountain. Read Full Review

    A familiar story with mixed visuals leads to a surprisingly unsatisfactory issue. For the hard core Star Wars fan only. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 25, 2017

    The latest Star Wars story arc certainly has the novelty factor working in its favor, as it takes a break from the post-Episode IV era to explore a lost Yoda adventure. Unfortunately, this conflict has yet to show enough depth to justify such an in-depth treatment. Worse, the lackluster art is doing little to bring this flashback tale to life. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 25, 2017

    A mysterious discovery awaits Yoda in this flashback tale, however there's very little in the way of detail to sustain your interest. There's certainly the teasing of an idea that ties to the Force, but you could easily skip this issue to really find out next month. Read Full Review
