    OverallOverall. A really strong issue, which is building on events rather nicely. I'm particularly enjoying the fact that Lando is having to earn the trust of Leia and the rebels. Given that we never got the opportunity to see that happen in the movie series. A return to Bespin awaits in the next issue and I am looking forward to seeing how that will play out.

    Overall, it's still an absolutely stellar issue and, so far, series. Something I've said a few times to different people is thanks to this series and Soule's other current series, Star Wars comics have never felt more like an event. The quality to quantity ratio is higher than its ever been before. I'm very much anticipating the next issue of this series, and I'm hoping to see the other upcoming series meet this standard.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 29, 2020

    As a Star Wars fan, I'm enjoying this series so far. It's building off of the world and filling in gaps left unanswered. We know where it goes but there's still a mystery in how everything reaches the destination. This is a solid pick up for those interested in the adventures of the Rebel Alliance. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 4, 2020

    As the series starts to push away more and more from how the film it's launching from ended, Star Wars will find its feet. One of the big positives of this is that the Land of this time and place is going to get a much-needed expansion and it's going to be largely new and uncharted territory for a lot of people to sink their teeth into.

    Luke's inner turmoil, which he will ultimately conquer to deem himself a Jedi Master, will likely prove to be the more exciting way the book enriches the events of the original trilogy, though all heroes' journeys will prove entertaining. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 29, 2020

    This is a good second issue that sets in motion a few plots to keep your eyes on going forward. Soule has a great handle on the character voices and Saiz backs him up with visuals that stand up to the films. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 29, 2020

    Charles Soule continues his Star Wars Story, and while I love his take on the characters, this issue was a bit down compared to the first. However, it's still a worthwhile buy and read for every Star Wars fan. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Edward Lee Feb 3, 2020

    So far, so good in the new Star Wars arc. A lot of focus on the main characters continues to be the selling point of this series, but with a new feel. It will be rough having no Han for a while, but Lando makes for an entertaining proxy, promising a new dynamic in the crew as a whole. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 6, 2020

    As for Luke, his journey looks to be internal as the comic foreshadows a shrouded figure in visions that may hold keys to help unlocking his potential (or a potential threat that needs to be overcome?). Worth a look. Read Full Review
