    Calling all Star Wars fans " you want this! Han starts out on a noble mission only to find himself drawn into helping an old friend that leads to trouble. I loved the characters, old and new, with plenty of action that makes Han and Chewie fan favorites. The visuals are superb, leaving me hoping that Sprouse and Story will be asked back for more Star Wars work. This is outstanding. Read Full Review

    The art in this issue is in top shape, the new characters are made to look fresh and interesting (one of them seems to shop in the same place as Luke for yellow jackets) and there is a nice little nod of foreshadowing early in the issue to when Han looks at the holomap of the galaxy in The Force Awakens. The Han Solo portrayed on these pages looks and feels like the Han from A New Hope, and as noted above Chewbacca's critical knowing looks at Han and general body language is captured faithfully by the art. Also worth highlighting the brilliant cover to this issue from Terry and Rachel Dodson, which will make this very attractive as a physical copy. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 7, 2019

    With the main series focusing between ANH and ESB, I like that this issue keeps things very close to the end of the first film and shows some of the reasons why Han ended up hanging has with the Rebellion for awhile. Greg Pak definitely captures the mood well and I love the visual design of the book for both characters and the settings that Sprouse and Story put together. There's a sad aspect to this that's appealing from the usual cocky version of Han that we get and seeing Luke still feeling confident after all that had gone down since leaving Tatooine. Little one-off stories like this are great and I'm hopeful that we'll see more taking place later in the original trilogy timeline. Read Full Review

    There aren't any major flaws with this book, yet it lacks any real necessity for a Star Wars fan. Read Full Review
