ANOTHER GUN! STORMTROOPERS don't get a name. They are simply a tool of the EMPIRE. But PHASMA has a name, and one young soldier wants what she has. One stormtrooper has ambition. And this ambition is on a collision course with CAPTAIN PHASMA.

    Phasma is fully shown as an inspiration and as a survivor of the First Order. The story expands her handsomely beyond what was shown in the films with a lot of trooper action right in the thick of things. The visuals are great: if you're looking for troopers, you'll definitely want this! Lots of intensity and drama on the battlefield throughout this issue. The colors are also terrific, with the blasts and bodies immense. I went in to this as a very reluctant reader and became very open to more Phasma exploits. Read Full Review

    A good issue that reveals how evil runs deep with some. Or at the very least, survival is key to live a long life serving the First Order. Read Full Review

    The book is absolutely satisfying for fans of the character, yet it doesn't take us down any unexpected path that could have framed the character in a new perspective or in a way that could give more gravitas to her on-screen role. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 16, 2019

    I know that Phasma was intended to be the Boa Fett of sorts for The Force Awakens and there are touches of that since the film landed. The problem was that there just wasn't enough there to sink your teeth into or connections to make it interesting and the second film reinforced that. I do think there's a lot to explore with the character with the expanded side as presented so far, including this book, but that we're not going to really get to dig into any of that until the trilogy is done and over with and the real expanded universe gets fully underway. Taylor captures the essence of the two characters for this storyline well and it's a solid and engaging read. And it managed to make me really like Leonard Kirk's artwork for this franchise, which I haven't before but have enjoyed on other works. I'm looking forward to more of Taylor's run on the Age of Resistance and who else he may be paired with. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Egan Jul 12, 2019

    A dark and brutal expansion on the mystery that is Captain Phasma. Rightfully shines the light on her villainous ways, both her outward and shadowy actions she keeps hidden. Read Full Review
