SI SPURRIER (DOCTOR APHRA) and CASPAR WIJNGAARD (DOCTOR APHRA ANNUAL) bring the terrifying droid to life!

    Pound for pound, or page for page, rather, the Special finds unique and engaging stories to tell for both familiar and obscure characters, making it a must-read for fans of the original trilogy of films. Read Full Review

    A real mixed bag of short stories with IG-88, Yoda, and Porkins and Biggs. I loved the first, felt okay about the second, and was confused by the intentions of the third. As with any collection of short stories, some are better than others in story and visuals, and how one judges them ultimately depends on the reader. I though this was just a little better than average. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kaasen Koy Apr 17, 2019

    Age of Rebellion Special #1 is an uneven but generally successful anthology. IG-88's character study vignette is worth the price of admission, and strong artwork makes Yoda's "day in the life" a great look at the Jedi's time on Dagobah. Biggs and Porkins' vacation escapade leaves this comic on a sour (albeit visually fun) note, but the Age of Rebellion gets a much stronger special than the Age of Republic did. Read Full Review

    All in all this is a mixed bag. What it gained in variety it lacked in cohesion, and for me I think it would be hard to recommend this book as essential reading. That said, two out of the three tales entertained me, and one made me laugh so if you do get your hands on a copy it is still worth a read. The tales are very much take it or leave it, light storytelling with some solid – if not stellar – artwork. Read Full Review
