    Charles Soule writes a pretty fast-paced action-adventure story here. But I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to spend at least one more issue on Bespin give the iconic place it has in Star Wars. Thankfully we do get a valid reason for the rush in which the rebels escape so there is some story logic for what seems like a slightly rushed story arc. Read Full Review

    This shared Star Wars universe that all the Star Wars books are in is quickly shaping up to be really good. All the books are off to really good starts, led here rightly so, by the flagship book. Do yourself a favor and check one or all of them out. I can't recommend them enough if you're a Star Wars fan. Read Full Review

    My love of Star Wars continues and getting to dig into these areas and setting some new paths forward is welcome. Going back to Cloud City so soon was definitely the right move for several reasons and they all played out well here. It does have me wondering what path we'll see Luke's lightsaber take if it gets mentioned in the comics again. Lando's growth is solid and we're seeing more of his leadership style being forced upon him until he really accepts it naturally. Leia's story works well in wanting to understand more of the carbonite process and this at least gives her a little taste of it in order to understand what Han is going through, which certainly draws her closer to him in a small but important way. Lots of good stuff here and I'm eager to see what's next. Read Full Review

    I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue and seeing where this series goes in general. A few months ago I thought there were too many Star Wars comics running at the same time but now I'm so invested in the few series that we have that the waits between issues feel too long. It'll be especially interesting to see how they connect with each other, since all of the current series take place at the same time and crossovers have been teased. I can think of one character in the current Darth Vader run that would certainly be interesting to see interact with Luke and Leia. Overall, I'm very impressed with Marvel's new chapter in Star Wars publishing and I can't wait to see where it leads. Read Full Review

    This installment in the narrative is really everything a Star Wars fan could want from such a book, as it delivers action-packed excitement, deeper dives into the mythology seen in the live-action films, and teases of entirely unexplored corners of the galaxy far, far away. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, unanswered questions are becoming somewhat standard in the Star Wars universe, and this book gave very little hope that this change anytime soon. Read Full Review
