    I really loved this issue. It was action packed from start to finish and there were moments when I could even hear the iconic music of John Williams playing while I read it. Read Full Review

    This is an action packed issue with the Rebels making very smart moves. The story is thrilling and the visuals outstanding. If only the lettering were as strong. Still, I can't dismiss the rest of the book if the lettering is bad. This will please every Star Wars fan. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 11, 2018

    The main Star Wars book has another solid installment as we get to the middle point of the arc and everything shifts with it. It's here that we get a good battle sequence further underway as Larroca captures it very well with the movement and style while giving it the kind of backgrounds that adds to the scale at times. The subplot with Leia is one that is kind of ridiculous in a way but it's also something that I'm looking forward to more of because it'll be fun to watch with her having to go up against Vader and whatever else they find on the Imperial ship.

    Earlier issues in this arc got off to a rough start, but with the break-neck action finally unfolding in a series of exhilarating space battles, artist Salvador Larocca is this arc's biggest strength, delivering explosive action by balancing precision with chaos. Read Full Review

    Star Wars #53 offers fancy flying and quick thinking from Luke and a brutal day for the Millennium Falcon and the rest of the Rebel Fleet. Leia' infiltration of the Executor sets up next issue's race against time to find the missing codes and save the Rebellion before Darth Vader catches her and the Imperial Fleet destroys what Rebels remain. Worth a look. Read Full Review
