    Han is prisoner, Vader attacks Threepio, and Luke races to retrieve this lightsaber in this sensational issue. The story moves at the perfect pace, making every joke hilarious and action epic. The visuals are spectacular, with Vader and Luke incredible. This is the perfect Star Wars comic. Get it before it gets rebooted! Recommended. Read Full Review

    With only a handful of issues to go, it's clear that the pieces of this puzzle are finally coming together and, while we know what fate awaits our heroes, knowing that their reunion is just over the horizon adds an extra element of joy to the isolated issues, leaving us to hope the book concludes in a fulfilling way.

    Like any narrative told in serial fashion, that tension and action works best for those who have come along from the beginning. Fortunately, Star Wars can rely on the cultural awareness of these characters so that casual readers, who may pick up an issue after watching the newest trailer, can be carried away on this adventure. Pak and Noto's pacing and storytelling successfully orchestrates the bars of John Williams' score as the action builds to the penultimate issue next month. Read Full Review

    It is absolutely satisfying to see this series get out of the quagmire of boring storytelling. It is important that this series goes out with a bang instead of a whimper. With the cover art of the next issue portraying the mighty Chewbacca facing off against Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader, it looks like fans might actually get an epic conclusion to Marvel's longest running series of modern Star Wars comics.

    Despite my concerns, I'm looking forward to the final two issues. I still don't think Dar Champion is the strongest character but otherwise just about every aspect of this arc is interesting enough. The story has felt stretched out so far but now that we're down to just two issues, I'm finding myself wondering how it can wrap up so fast. Hopefully it finds a way to bring closure to this story and the many stories that have come before it. Read Full Review

    This installment is an improvement over the last issue in that it at least doesn't make me want to skip the remainder of the storyline. I do think there are good ideas in here but the execution has left me feeling flat with it, from the split of the group to the rock creatures themselves. Each of the stories feel underserved in what they need to work right and competing for pages isn't helping it at all. I do like what we see with Boss Carpo and I'd love to see all of this stuff with Dar explored more but only if he actually had a different last name as it's just so cringy. Here's hoping the final two issues manage to push it over the line in a good enough way. Read Full Review

    Unless you're a die-hard fan of this series you'd be better off to skip this issue. Rather than being allowed to end well, this issue is clearly rushed as the "next" relaunch seems more important even though it doesn't start until January. What a shame. Read Full Review
