    Issue #33 is a wonderful character driven tale starring Luke and Leia and one of the strongest Star Wars comics to date. Read Full Review

    A fantastic self-contained story with visuals to match. Luke and Leia show themselves to make a great team, dealing with starvation, meeting natives, and interstellar threats. I'd suggest going to lightspeed to pick this up. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Ben Wasserman Jul 6, 2017

    The Marvel STAR WARS series continues to be a fun exploration of Luke, Han, and Leia's adventure in between A NEW HOPE and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. With a compelling story by Jason Aaron and visually stellar artwork by Salvador Larocca, this stand-alone issue does a great job of developing Leia Organa's internal motivation as a rebel leader.

    Star Wars #33 “Rebels In The Wild”keeps the series going strong as Aaron allows the reader to make a personal connection with both Luke and Leia as they fend off the Empire. Larroca's art is great as he introduces more races in this vast Galaxy far far away. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 11, 2017

    With some fun things in the Screaming Citadel arc but not a strong enough work overall, this one-off story is one that definitely delights as it puts Luke and Leia together in a very good way. It touches on their past without it being a full blow kind of flashback piece and it helps to bond them together a bit with some time away from everything else, even though the greater worry is still there. And it looks like the next issue is going to give us some Lando and Sana fun that has me really hopeful for something great. Aaron does a solid job here with this kind of tale and Larroca brings it to life wonderfully, especially with Delgado's color work with all the lush island colors and that of the sea.

    Aaron delivers across the board and provides us with a fun adventure between story arcs, that reminds us that Star Wars isn't just the Empire and the Rebel Alliance. There's a great big galaxy out there. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Jul 7, 2017

    There's nothing this book needed more than a little brother-sister quality time. Aaron delivers heavily on the top-notch character development Leia needed in the era of this new extended universe since we're not going to get as much as we deserve in the movies for obvious reasons. Great offering to the blerd gawds. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 6, 2017

    Basically, Robinson Crusoe in space. It's a fun diversion for the series. But more importantly, it's one that adds some welcome depth to the Skywalker sibling relationship and fleshes out Leia's past in a meaningful way. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - John McCubbin Jul 6, 2017

    Star Wars #33 is easily one of the more unique entries since the series began back in 2015, as despite the style not appealing to me personally, the content more than makes up. The way the creative team explore the connection and past of both Skywalker twins also helps to make up for the issue's shortfalls, with the final tease giving us plenty to ponder over as we await the next issue.

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Jul 10, 2017

    Star Wars #33 will give them a greater appreciation for who they are as characters. Anyone hoping for more than that, though, is asking too much of the Force. Read Full Review
