    Star Wars continues to be one of the best comics on the stands today, with the magic within these tales only getting me more excited for the new film. Giving great development to the main plots, with an exciting battle between Luke and Boba Fett, this issue is bound to entice, with the final moments being a great teaser leading into the next issue.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jun 7, 2015

    It's been a terrific series so far, though this is sadly the last issue for Cassaday. Here's hoping the future artists can maintain the high level that has been set in this opening story! Read Full Review

    Fanboys Inc - Jeff Ayers Jun 4, 2015

    So many fun moments and neat winks to true fans in the issue make for a fun read, and an eye-popping artistic comic. Especially the end with Vader really gives the gravity of the series its spotlight, but the left field twist might leave some readers angry, while intrigue others to eagerly await the next issue.

    Overall, this is a fanatic comic whether you are a fan of the Star Wars movies or just saw this on the shelf and decided to pick it up. Either way, you won't be disappointed. The story is intriguing especially for those that are fans of the movies because it shows how certain events come into place, yet it still throws a few surprises that would catch any fan off guard. Even if you are not aware at what Jason Aaron is leading through, it is well written enough to keep your attention. This is definitely worth a pick up for any comic book fan. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jun 4, 2015

    Star Wars #6 is a huge issue for the series, changing the canon for one of the most well known characters there is, crafted by a great creative team. This is an entertaining read with big action, lots of emotion, and some excellent final pages and I am loving Star Wars more than I have in years. This is good stuff. Read Full Review

    Fans of Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett should be pleased with this issue. A few nits keep it from being spectacular. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 4, 2015

    The main Star Wars series continues to be enjoyable with what it does, though I still find myself far more interested in all the other books overall. This mini-arc has been the better point in it with what it's done in focusing on a smaller segment of things, splitting the characters, and providing potential launching points for new reveals and expansions. What I really hope is that they stop messing with the larger continuity though and start telling more stories that fill in the gaps, which we saw can be done easily throughout the years of other novels and the like. I know the Han and Sana storyline will take up some time and garner the most attention, but for me that just feels like a big wedge at the moment until they expand on it. I'm certainly curious though to see what the truth is when we get to it, since it's likely not what everyone is racing around imagining it to be. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 4, 2015

    If you need proof that Jason Aaron is willing to try new things and subvert expectations with this new series, look no further than this issue. Even as Aaron mines the rocky relationship between Han and Leia for all its worth, he introduces a significant new wrinkle that promises to really shake things up. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Jun 15, 2015

    The excellent thing about Star Wars #6 is that it both present a very enjoyable issue in itself and opens up a couple of new and promising storylines for future issues of Star Wars. It appears that the next issue will delve into Ben Kenobis past while the mystery of Sana Solo will be explored further in Star Wars #8. Even outside of it setting up the future, there is a lot to like in Star Wars #6. It hopefully signals the creators of the series hitting their stride and delivering many good issues in the future.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 6, 2015

    Watching Luke's journey into accepting his Jedi training is pretty cool, and I hope it remains the focus of Marvel's Star Wars. Aaron has a good handle on the character and his journey, and I hope it remains this adventurous. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 8, 2015

    While the B-plot may be a bit lacking, there is a lot to love about Star Wars, even as this issue is bittersweet when you realize that John Cassaday is riding off into the binary sunset. In many ways, the future of this title is at stake, as it relied so much not just on Jason Aaron's voice, but Cassaday's skill at realizing it. But for six glorious issues, a real dream team has brought Star Wars back to life, and they deserve plenty of accolades for not just accepting this high-wire act, but for totally sticking the landing. May the Force be with any artist who has to follow up on this virtuoso effort. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Jun 3, 2015

    Star Wars #6 was a bit of a mixed bag at times but ended with the goods outweighing the bads. Aaron brings forth a huge twist in Star Wars canon that will undoubtedly be controversial and fortunately, I feel indifferent towards it so far. Aaron is taking advantage of the time period he was given by offering big moments in the life of Darth Vader (and another) but also falters due to this. The prequel element of this comic removes a lot of the tension from half of this issue and ultimately drops it down from the series’ regular quality. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 11, 2015

    The issue's B-story has wide consequences as Han and Leia run into Han Solo's ex-wife while running from an Imperial patrol in the Outer Rim. Just what exactly Sana Solo‘s role will be going forward is unclear but her introduction begins a likely wide divergence between the decades of Star Wars comics and novels of the past 25 years. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 5, 2015

    "Star Wars" #6 is a fast-moving story, cleanly divided into advancing two story strands before bringing temporary closure to one of them. That closure gives Darth Vader new motivation in his quest and, along the way, this comic does a nice job of checking things into place and eliciting emotions. This series' energy is not unlike that of the original "Star Wars" series from decades ago but, now, so much more is "known" about these characters that any new revelations, like the ones in this issue, range from shocking to simply eyebrow-raising. How Aaron continues to build the outskirts of this galaxy from here is where the real intrigue lies. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Jun 6, 2015

    "Star Wars" is an exciting read each and every issue. The comic provides plenty of action but doesn't risk too much with the battles. Knowing which characters survive takes some of the drama out of the fight scenes. This issue has some great moments, especially the Solo reveal. The artwork could have been more polished but is generally good. Overall, this is a quality read and worth checking out. Read Full Review
