    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 21, 2018

    Angel Unzueta has some beautiful art in this issue. All of the characters look great and the backgrounds really give a sense of the beautiful, lush landscape of Hubin. I am intrigued with where this story is going next. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 27, 2018

    While this arc has some unusual tones about it at times, some of it coming from the covers to be sure, Star Wars is playing through a familiar story of the core group being stranded for a while. That does offer a chance for some change but change is hard to come by in this series for the core because of film reasons. I do like that we get of Thane and this particular place as there are some neat designs to it, especially his outfit, and it leaves you curious about the deal in place with the Empire. Gillen keeps things moving well here with a good pace and Unzueta's artwork is spot on for this kind of story with some great layouts and very fun sequences at times, especially with Thane's outfit at the beginning.

    Comic Crusaders - Shawn Warner Nov 23, 2018

    Overall this is an exceptionally entertaining issue, engrossing and intriguing in ways that go beyond our familiarity with these characters and this saga. There is an excitement to this current arc that has been missing from some of the other Star Wars titles. Gillen and Unzueta have created one heck of a solid story and I can't wait for the next chapter to unfold. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Nov 25, 2018

    Things are progressing, slowly. The new characters are clunky in their revelations and dialogue is given at weird times. The art is also uneven, with obvious inspiration for images not blending well with original characters. I'm still on board for more Star Wars, but I'm waiting for something to happen.

    Comic Watch - Brian Arbizo Nov 30, 2018

    After the hype of the last issue, I was expecting a bit more from the issue so I did group the score down to a 7. The story appears to a bit of a slow start, but still onboard. It's still a good issue, I am just really picky.Art is fantastic, the color in each page is great and full of color which is what I like. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime Nov 21, 2018

    It’s still a lot of setup for the rest of the arc but it’s fun setup that I enjoyed reading, so I’m OK with that. It’s a refreshing and original arc in a series that has been and seems like it will continue to be fast paced, so I’m ok with slowing down for a beat. I’m really excited to see SCAR Squadron come to the moon soon and it looks like Luke might be getting a temporary romantic interest. The solicits yesterday also gave us a tease of the next arc and therefore how this one ends, and I’m excited to see where the series continues to go. I wouldn’t be surprised if the next arc or two are the last ones before we catch up to Empire Strikes Back. No matter what, I’m excited to keep reading. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Sarah Bieniek Dec 10, 2018

    Honestly, I was pretty bored while reading this. I can see the potential for it to be a great read once we get deep into the story, but the setup isn't all that exciting or engaging. The art was also pretty frustrating. In some aspects I really loved it, but in others I found it off putting and it made me disengage from the story. Read Full Review

    The arc is clearly building to something, which is unknown this early on in the run, but merely getting to spend some time watching our heroes banter with one another still made for an entertaining read. Read Full Review
