    Lando leaps into this tale fantastically. Lando and Sana make a terrific team and I would love to see them in their own series. The story and visuals are of the highest caliber. If only Marvel would allow their letterers to be creative with their talents. Read Full Review

    Giving Lando a bit more time in the main series is kind of hard to do to some degree pre-Empire but Aaron found a fun way to make it work. And to make me want another Lando series – an ongoing – to explore his shenanigans as he shifts to being a proper businessman. This book puts a great pairing together and Salvador Larroca really drives it home with how good he is on these books when it comes to capturing the actors' likenesses. It's not an easy feat on top of bringing out some really great visual designs for the ships and worlds that fans want to see presented right but damn if he doesn't deliver issue after issue, making him my favorite of the Star Wars artists so far. A very fun book and a wonderful standalone tale that fits in the bigger tapestry just right. Read Full Review

    While the comic certainly shows off the skill-set of Sana, it does make you wonder how she's managed to stay alive so long double-crossing every one she comes across and making enemies wherever she finds them. Lando's involvement offers some fun back-and-forth between the pair, but when you boil the story down it's obvious he's not really needed for Sana's plan. Still, it was fun to see the scoundrel again, and the pair do make for a fun team-up. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Bottom Line: Not quite the most gorgeous issue ever, but certainly one of the most fun. Sana has already earned her keep as a reluctant part of Team Skywalker but this issue definitely reminded us of her pure entertainment value. How Kanan: The Last Padawan could manage to get a solo book and she couldn't is beyond my understanding. Read Full Review

    Finally, in STAR WARS #34 we get an issue starring Sana Starros, the great new character introduced towards the beginning of this arc. This issue is an enjoyable adventure in the smuggling world as Sana teams up with Lando to swindle a bunch of gangsters and Imperials. Read Full Review

    Art is what you'd expect giving a realism 3D aspect but the dimensions of Lando's head seems to be skewed during negotiations. The only action you will see is on the cover. Read Full Review

    Star Wars #34 isnt likely to go down as a memorable comic, but nevertheless it is a fun standalone issue. Delivering a unique narrative involving Sansa and Lando, the creative team shine the spotlight on a different region of the galaxy far, far away, with its simplicity being rather alluring.

    Star Wars #34 is a visually muddled but still enjoyable showcase for Sana Starros and Lando Calrissian. It's not entirely clear why Lando needed to be included, but he makes for a fun counterpart to his headstrong, relentless partner. And Sana herself really shines here, proving that she deserves to follow in Doctor Aphra's footsteps and branch out into her own series. Read Full Review
