    Kieron Gillen's first run on the main book is shaping up well with what it wants to accomplish and with the main paths coming together here, and a lot of impact from both of them still to be felt, the next installment looks to really put them in a bad place trying to survive while doing the right thing.

    A great issue that balances Rebel battles and Luke learning a thing or two. Read Full Review

    Luke is surrounded by the Dark Side, while Han and Leia battle a city sized machine. The visuals are outstanding, but the story leaves me mixed for what happens with both groups. I couldn't stop reading this issue once I began, but I wasn't thrilled with it. Read Full Review

    Star Wars #41 is a fun read featuring the characters of the long-standing franchise presented in their full, well-represented glory. The arts great, and I can easily recommend it. Check it out. Read Full Review

    At this point, Kieron Gillen may well be the MVP of Marvel's Star Wars line. He excels in working with both movie favorites and original characters, and his prose manages to capture the thrill of Star Wars while also adding its own quirky charm. Read Full Review

    While I am all for a little grit in Star Wars stories, I am hoping that after issue #41, we get more of a sense of why this story is dark and not just how it is dark. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Jan 4, 2018

    Five panels of a meaningful story, a worn out plot device, and pacing slower than the continent class machine creates a disappointing filler chapter in this story arc. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Roger Palmer Jan 5, 2018

    As the fourth issue in this series, this feels more about continuing the story than delivering a finale, plus Star Wars titles have a tendency to leave everything in status quo, as we know all the events ahead of them. It's a fabulous looking comic, as the art style really shows off the amazing Jedha planet, but sadly the story just doesn't go anywhere. Read Full Review
