    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given May 13, 2019

    This title is bringing Star Wars back to basics in the way that Rogue One did. I wish this could have been filmed before episodes 7, 8 and 9 so we could have had our heroes together on one last great adventure. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 7, 2019

    This storyline continues to work well as I like seeing a proactive group of Rebels working to deal a strong blow against the Empire while handling all the ways it goes wrong along the way. Gillen's story works across the main pieces well and everyone feels well-served with what they're going through, though I think I like what Luke is dealing with the most because Bethnic just feels like he's the engaging one to follow here. Each of the pieces builds the big picture well and it flows well and looks great throughout. I'm excited to see what's coming next as we get closer to the end of Gillen's run. Read Full Review

    Luke and Benthic have a conversation that leads to trouble, creating more chaos. Great action, great characters, and great visuals. I love everything about this issue except the lettering, which continues to be the weakest element of this series. Still, it's not so bad as to destroy the book…but it could have been perfect!

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - olddeserthymnal May 3, 2019

    All in all this is another good installment in the series. It strikes me that the ongoing, action packed serial style nature of this title is particularly fitting for Star Wars, a saga which is rooted in Saturday morning serials such as Flash Gordon. Read Full Review

    The art in the book continues to be fantastic, though the story offers readers little to generate excitement Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime May 2, 2019

    It's a very middle of the road issue. I don't have any particularly strong feelings about it. This is an arc that, like most of Gillen's arc, I think will read far better in a trade when you can get the entire story in one go. Until then, I'll continue to read the issues one by one and hope that they catch my interest more and more. Read Full Review
