    I look forward to next month's issue so I can see how this story arc will meld into the next one. The past few months of this ongoing series have been really strong and have introduced some fantastic characters along the way. So I am looking forward to seeing how they come across Hoth and what difficulties they get into as they set up the new Rebel base. That is assuming that we get to see it happen. Read Full Review

    This issue might not have featured any major revelations and, while we know that this book leads into the events of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the stage is set to send this series out with a bang that is worthy of the more than 70 issues that came before it. Read Full Review

    A mad rush to complete the tale, you can almost hear the John William's soundtrack swelling in the background. Read Full Review

    The final arc for this Star Wars run didn't have the meat on it to really work well for as many installments as it did, especially split up as it was. Pak had some good character moments but there was a lot that just didn't click right in the end. Warba felt disconnected from everything, Dar fell into a similar pattern, and most of the core group were just going through the motions. Threepio kind of felt like the lead of the storyline overall and they were just dealing with rock creatures. Ah, well, the series is almost done and we'll be moving onto new adventures soon enough.

    Final Thoughts: For this reviewer, the story trumps all. And despite some art issues, the story rebounded nicely with a couple of very clever things that move the story forward. While all eyes are seemingly on the reboot, I'm holding out hope for a nice series finale. Read Full Review

    Noto's artwork is great as always, it's a shame he only gets such a short run on the series compared to some of the previous artists I enjoyed less who got much longer runs. I think this will be an arc that I end up appreciating more in a year when I read it as a trade paperback. There's nothing necessarily wrong with that but I do miss also enjoying the series quite a bit as single issues.I've found myself going back to the end of Kieron Gillen's run on the series, just before the start of this arc, more and more lately. I hope that Pak can bring as fulfilling a climax as he did. And if not, there's always Empire Ascendant next month. Read Full Review
