    This is perfect Star Wars storytelling. The characters are true to their film counterparts and a delight with the new characters and obstacles they counter. Han and Leia argue brilliantly, Luke is flabbergasted by a new character, and Threepio and Chewbacca's bond continues to grow as they come across some gigantic threats. The visuals are superb. Familiar faces resemble those from the films and seeing them in action in exceptional settings is a joy. It's a good time to be a Star Wars fan with exploits like this. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - olddeserthymnal Jul 24, 2019

    This issue takes a strong start from issue 68 and keeps the momentum going. I think that it is reasonable to suggest that the first two issues of this new run are among the best work seen in Marvel Star Wars since the series got up and running again. There is a light-hearted sense of fun about them coupled with some heavy-duty artwork and a lot of laughs along the way. Top work. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 30, 2019

    With something that feels a bit simpler for a larger storyline that's spread across three sub-arcs, Star Wars is moving into Greg Pak's opening concept well. It feels Star Wars but like Kieron Gillen's run it feels like it's trying to mature up just a little bit to be something more. It still has some of the childish aspects that are part and parcel with it, looking at you, Han, but these are familiar and expected pieces. I like Luke's arc a lot with what potential it has there and it's a delight seeing Han and Leia in new outfits. Phil Noto has some great layouts with very smooth transitions and a lot to like with color design and detail. I'm looking forward to what's next. Read Full Review

    Phil Noto's artwork continues to look gorgeous, with Luke's introduction to another Force-user who doesn't seem to align with the ways of the Jedi or the Sith potentially setting him up for some interesting self-reflection. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Jul 24, 2019

    We've got big expectations when it comes to Star Wars, so it's extremely difficult to make a new story that's truly satisfying. While the beloved heroes sound and look decent enough, the plot, characterization, and art are very standard fare for these corporatized comics. Read Full Review
