    Angel Unzueta's art is fantastic. Not only do the characters look amazing, but there are some great, detailed backgrounds that demand the reader's attention. Read Full Review

    Plans are revealed and familiar foes arrive to cause trouble for the heroes. This is an okay outing, with the story being a transition issue and the visuals being serviceable. Han Solo is really unlikable in this issue, so I'm hoping that a moment arrives, soon, where he becomes more loyal to Luke, Leia, and the Rebellion. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 15, 2019

    This arc continues to just kind of progress for me without anything really interesting happening. I'm more interested in getting to what Leia wants to do with Sho-Torun and getting back at Trios and I want to get back to the galaxy at large and to stories that feel like they might matter a little more. This isue gives us some decent time in the core trio figuring each other out more now that they're talking a bit more honestly but largely we've just got everyone not feeling like themselves in this place and being all corralled up as they are. Gillen has some good moments here and there and Unzueta's artwork is pretty solid throughout, but everything just feels like we're treading water. Read Full Review

    The narrative sets the stage for a big conflict more than it delivered a fulfilling storyline, yet we do get a Han Solo blaster duel that perfectly encapsulates the charming scoundrel, which helps tip the scales of the issue firmly into the "fun read" column. Read Full Review

    While I had problems with this issue I felt like it was an improvement over the last few. I am definitely excited to see where the story goes with the introduction of these new characters. Hopefully, it's more exciting than what we've been getting. Read Full Review

    It’s an OK issue overall. Probably my least favorite of the arc so far, but I’m still really enjoying the arc overall and I’m excited for whatever plans Gillen has for the future. I’m hoping my opinion of SCAR’s return improves next issue and even if it doesn’t I’m sure it’ll be a fun read. Read Full Review
