    The artwork in the book compliments the story well and the art team duties being spread across such a large artistic team is handled in a clever fashion. The switching of the narrative action across many small sequences means that even where the change of art style is noticeable it doesn't jar. All in all though this is a tale that underscores the heroism and goodness of Luke Skywalker in both the storytelling and the art. Both are used to depict an icon, and a role model of self-effacing courage. Someone with an ability to harness his great responsibility to his great power. Not bad for a single issue of a comic book, and a great return for the cover price. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 5, 2019

    A good Star Wars one-shot that has a lot of action and ideas fans will love. Luke Skywalker has always been a man who could fall off the ledge and turn evil and this issue effectively dabbles in his internal conflict. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of potential to explore with the character of Luke that hasn't been delved into in the current comics run since the vast majority of it is pre-Empire. This gives us a little taste of the complexity and issues and I like it for the idea of what it can explore. Greg Pak does handle some decent material here with what's going on but it's brought down a fair bit by weak artwork from artists that I usually see a whole lot better from. The inconsistent art teams within a single one-shot are one of the most frustrating things about this otherwise really engaging run of additional stories set within my favorite place to explore.

    While it's not a must-read for all Star Wars fans, the book manages to illustrate the iconic hero with many more layers than what we've seen in stories from recent years. Read Full Review

    The story is fantastic, but different artists create a jarring visual experience. I would love to see Pak writing more of Luke's adventures after reading this one-shot. Having one artist and inker team would have made this a much more consistent book. If you like Star Wars, you'll enjoy this, but you will have questions about the visuals. Read Full Review

    It's a good set up but the 3-man art team stops it from reaching its full capacity. I'm not sure what the thinking behind it was but it's a shame they went this route. A soft recommendation for Star Wars fans. Read Full Review
