    Of all the solo character issues so far, this one ties with the Luke/Leia issue as probably the best of Aaron's final issues on this title. Whether you're a decades old Star Wars fan or have only ever watched Rogue One, this book has something awesome going on for you. Read Full Review

    A fun issue with Artoo as a spy aboard a Star Destroyer out to rescue his counterpart See-Threepio. The droid shows he's got grit with several stormtroopers having horrible deaths, but he is on a mission. The visuals are fine, but come off uneven when humans are in the same panel as helmeted figures or droids. Still, this is a good read for anyone who loves droids or Artoo-Detoo. Read Full Review

    This is the most fun I've had reading a manual since I first got my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Young Sep 15, 2017

    STAR WARS #36 is a enjoyable comic and the penultimate issue for Jason Aaron. It centers on R2-D2 as he breaks into a Star Destroyer to save his friend, C3-P0. Its definitely a fun, entertaining issue but with a universe as rich as STAR WARS, it just feels a bit safe and conventional. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 19, 2017

    Aaron and Larroca have a good bit of fun here with the story as it gives us what you get out of a droid based story. I can easily imagine this being done through the Clone Wars TV series and fitting in perfectly (and I wouldn't be surprised if it was done on some level there already, more than once, in fact). What they do here helps to bring this dangling plot thread to a close as the core team is back together as it sets us up for a new encounter with Scar Squadron the next time around for Aaron's last issue, hopefully bringing some closure to that plot thread. This is definitely a fun issue and I think Artoo fans will delight in it. Read Full Review

    A perfectly good R2-D2 story though it lacks any real danger for the characters. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 13, 2017

    Star Wars #36 is, if nothing else, a very entertaining Star Wars comic. This issue adds to R2-D2's reputation as a fearsome warrior (perhaps a little too much) while also celebrating his rarefied status among the droids. The art is also more effective than we've seen from recent chapters of the series. But at the end of the day, there's a nagging sense that more could have been accomplished with C-3PO's temporary captivity. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 13, 2017

    Star Wars #36 is an entertaining read that was totally let down by some awkward, poorly executed pencil work. Considering what we've seen in the past from artists on Star Wars, including Larroca himself, this just isn't up to par. Read Full Review
