    This is a fun issue that wraps up the story arc for Melton and his family rather nicely. Charles Soule makes clever use of these unknown characters to tell the story of how the Rebels found out about the second Deathstar. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Oct 12, 2022

    Star Wars #28 continues the story of Crimson Dawn agents Melton and Bevelyn, as theyre caught in galactic intrigue, regular people becoming major heroes in a war they didnt start. Its a wonderful story with moments of anxiety, as its never sure if theyll make it out alive or not. That, along with some great Luke and Hera Syndulla moments, make this another great issue.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 19, 2022

    I know I'm going to have to re-shift my perceptions going back into a number of the comics and such with how Andor is giving me something that I consider magical, but I can definitely enjoy this as there are a lot of fun things to it and it moves well and has a breezy script that delivers all the right things. I'm not sure if the comic fans want something that would be more serious and executed in such a way or if they just want to stick to the adventurous spirit that populates the film narrative. I do like the nod to the uniform and there is something darkly amusing about him adopting the look of the Empire to end the Empire, but that feeds into the whole idea that we either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain trope.

    Genolet delivers some fun and exciting art throughout the issue. The visuals are thrilling and I wish the store allowed the art to convey the tension it wanted to deliver.  Read Full Review

    While it might not be an outstanding excursion, it's an exciting glimpse into an untold chapter in Luke's many heroic moments. Read Full Review
