    This is a fantastic issue that sets out to answer a question that this fan has had for years. How did Luke go about constructing his new saber and where did her get the components from? So am pretty happy to be finally getting this question answered and look forward to seeing what happens next. Read Full Review

    In Star Wars #34, Luke Skywalker embarks on a supremely personal journey: to piece together all it means to be a Jedi from the scraps of information available to him. Charles Soule's story harkens back to early Star Wars stories by novelists like Alan Dean Foster and comic luminaries Roy Thomas and Archie Goodwin while fitting squarely into today's cinematic universe.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 10, 2023

    We get more story material here that helps to pave the way to Return of the Jedi and it definitely works well. I like getting an adventure with just Luke and R2 and introducing an interesting new character while visiting a world that we have a connection with through the Clone Wars side. And seeing how Luke is struggling with how little he was really taught about being a Jedi since Yoda and Ben were just more focused on him being able to handle himself against his father. It's a complicated piece that doesn't hold up too well in the grand scope of looking at things, but it's an area we accept. So I like seeing him trying to struggle with all of this to some degree and to find his own path while pulling together the things that he needs to face the future. Read Full Review

    Luke Skywalker and Artoo have set out on a Jedi mission. Along the way they have picked up a guide and narrowly escaped disaster, but still no kyber crystal. The search continues Read Full Review

    Whatever ends up coming of Luke's journey, it could potentially shed some major insight into the Jedi Master we meet in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, so we're fine with a relatively uneventful issue that could lead to some bigger payoffs. Read Full Review
