    A great conclusion, with plenty of action and some great surprises in the climax. The space battle is thrilling and looks fantastic. Every character gets a great moment that contributes to the story. This is what you want in a Star Wars comic! Read Full Review

    Maybe I'm just relieved to find good Star Wars content. Maybe I'm happy that I'm able to write a good review instead of criticizing an artist. Maybe I'm excited that this book has hit a stride and is mining gold just as it hits a bumper 50th issue, Either way, it's nice to be entertained this much by Star Wars for a change.

    There is some great action and visuals in this issue and the story works really well. I love the banter and dialogue between the characters and the battles made me nostalgic for the films. Read Full Review

    A great action-packed issue with space battles and close calls. It's an okay ending to the arc, but new reader friendly because of that. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 12, 2018

    The end of this arc is welcome because parts of it just did not click for me. It ends stronger than I expected but that comes from some good battles and a lot of solid Leia material that helps. Gillen does some solid stuff in exploring how the fleet got built up after the destruction of the Death Star and to see what happened to Mon Cala years after it was subjugated as seen in the other series. Larroca delivers more great pages once again and I just enjoy the look and flow of it a lot, particularly the final pages with Leia and Trios. Read Full Review

    The overall arc never really paid off on its promising beginnings, though the conflict between X-Wings and Star Destroyers saved the adventure from being a total dud. Read Full Review
