    The penultimate chapter to “The Scourging of Shu-Torun” takes a turn as things worsen. Exciting story with great action sequences. The visuals are powerful, with the settings being especially outstanding. A terrific issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - olddeserthymnal May 15, 2019

    What is so appealing about this series is that the storyline is exciting, plausible and peppered with connectivity with the wider saga and the Original Trilogy films. It has broad appeal because it is set within the most popular period in the franchise. The art now consistently captures both brilliantly rendered and instantly familiar depictions of Han, Luke and Leia. Mark Paniccia's stewardship of the Star Wars titles has produced amazing results of late, but this title forms the spine of the whole line and it is great to see a book keep delivering such a consistent hit of the essential spirit of Star Wars.

    I love the simplicity of Kancher's "betrayal" here as he focuses on his superior orders and needs to go after the Rebels and Leia in particular. There's good material between Luke and Bethnic that I like and I'm obviously hopeful that Artoo has a trick in motion here. But it's really the fight between Leia and trios that shines as we get the two going at it pretty fiercely yet controlled and with Trios throwing down some serious guilt on Leia for what she's doing – or rather, what she's let get out of control. It's a strong installment that has me excited for the finale to see how this all wraps up. Read Full Review

    I'm looking forward to seeing how the arc ends. It hasn't been my favorite arc of Gillen's but it has been a reasonably satisfying conclusion to a story that's been running for just over a year and a half now. The final issue should bring a nice conclusion to the long run, and I wouldn't mind a bit of a lead in to Greg Pak's run on the series that starts with issue #68. I can't wait to see what he does with the series because I've been thoroughly enjoying his work on Age of Rebellion for the most part. Read Full Review
