    The Padme Amidala story is one that showcases her talents fairly well and her general approach to dealing with a larger plan. I do find her a fascinating character because of her similarities and contrasts to Leia and how different their situations are once they become engaged with the larger world. Houser put together a story that's wrapped up easily but has some amusing moments to it, some solid action, and a focus on her attempts at diplomacy while facing the larger picture. I'd love to see more of her navigating the political stage and what was involved there " similar to the Leia novel with her as a junior legislator " so there's plenty to like here as a little tease of all of that.

    This is not a great book by any definition. The story holds no tension, the art runs from good to poor, as do the colors. The strongest element of this book is the lettering. Even for die hard Star Wars fans this is tough to get through. This book could be skipped and nothing missed. Very disappointing, very average, very meh. Read Full Review

    I've resigned myself to not expect much from these comics outside of some interesting character wrinkles. This issue certainly has that, but it also has Padme go on a mission that seems utterly boring. It reasserts things we already know about Padme and just doesn't add much to her story or the Star Wars narrative either. Read Full Review
