    But Why Tho? - Adrian Dec 9, 2020

    Overall, I enjoyed much ofStar Wars #9.I was taken aback by how fast the Commander Zahra and Leia Organa incident played out in the previous issue. I was worried that the commander's efforts might have been in vain, but it is clear that Zahra still holds some sway over the Rebel's actions moving forward. Further, the focus on the Pathfinders is a refreshing change of pace. Readers get to see the elite special forces unit in action without someone like Luke Skywalker to come to save the day like in the previous issue. Read Full Review

    A good story, which put me in mind of some of the old war movies I used to watch with my late father. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 9, 2020

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 15, 2020

    Star Wars continues to work this time period well and I'm thoroughly enjoying Soule's approach to it. I'm particularly glad to see him working with Lobot again as the Lando series he wrote a few years ago was one of my favorite Marvel books for this property as it explored some really good stuff and dug into neat things with all the characters. Jay Bazaldua is definitely a solid addition for this run as the artwork looks really good overall and it captures the feel that we look for it in pretty well with some room to grow. I'm excited to see when they get to explore more creative aspects and showcase what they can bring new to the galaxy far, far away. Read Full Review

    Having accomplished their mission, and all the collateral damage that entails, Leia finds herself frustrated with less that effective results. However, you cant keep a good warrior princess down for long. The Empire will learn that in time. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Dec 9, 2020

    Where the story goes from here is anyone's guess, but even being a serviceable premiere issue for a storyline is better than being a complete dud, with this chapter bringing us that relief, at least. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime Dec 12, 2020

    Hopefully the fast pace of this issue was because this arc has enough other interesting ideas Soule wanted to faster. Some of my feelings towards it will probably be determined by seeing how the rest of this story plays out, especially considering this ended on a big cliffhanger. This definitely wasn't my favorite issue of the series so far, but I still have a lot of faith in Soule as a storyteller and I'm looking forward to seeing what he doe next with the series.

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Dec 18, 2020

    Despite its problems, Charles Soule produced a fun enough read that gave us something new with The Pathfinders. Hopefully, Soule can flesh out the team more in future issues. Read Full Review
