    A smart story that returns to Jedha after the events of Rogue One. The characters and visuals are outstanding, making this a must-read Star Wars adventure. Recommended. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 28, 2017

    The book delves into events with Trios a bit more as her orbital drill is being put into play and I really like this connection to the past that spans a lot of years being tied into things. I'm still not too keen on the head Imperial in charge here yet because it's just a little too bit of a caricature without enough background, but it fits well with the larger presentation of Imperials and reminds of the main one from the New Dawn novel in a lot of ways. I really got into this issue with some great dialogue, a spot on expansion/introduction of Benthic, and the important work of showing the aftermath of Jedah and that it's not just a cut and dried thing. The "what happens afterward" part of a story is often what I'm drawn to more in some ways and Gillen delivers. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 22, 2017

    It's a real shame that this series' art quality has been so lackluster in 2017, because in terms of story and characterization, it's everything fans could want in a post-Rogue One comic. Kieron Gillen tempers his usually sardonic approach to the franchise, focusing on the somber aftermath of Jyn Erso's sacrifice and the futile campaign still being waged by the Partisans.

    Star Wars #39 continues to tell an interesting, post Rogue One story with the original main characters dealing with the ruined planet and trying to stop the Empire from doing it again. I'm really interested to see where this story goes. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Nov 24, 2017

    Bottom Line: The ideas are there. The premise is there. But the script feels slower than the premise and the art is going to continue to be this book's worst enemy. I sigh at what this book has become because I've seen what it could be. Read Full Review
