    The issue itself might not be exceptional, but the book's final panels manage to build excitement about what's in store for these characters, making this chapter, and arc, an important emotional adventure that helped cement our heroes' place in the overall Rebellion. Read Full Review

    This issue does a great job in closing the Jedha arc and also setting up some future interesting relationships, but the big battle between Luke and Commander Kanchar, just felt a bit anticlimactic. Read Full Review
