    The story moves at a brisk pace as a single installment requires but we get a good handle on our title character and a nice visit from Yoda as well, which always delight.s Cory Smith and Walden Wong captures the feel of the era just right, especially with Qui-Gon himself. I'd love to see more of this. Read Full Review

    A decent story to open the Age of Republic one-shots, though a longer one would could have fleshed out the story better. The visuals are okay, but aren't as consistent as other Star Wars titles. I'm a big enough fan to pick all of these up, but I'm hoping to see stronger entries in this twenty-eight issue series. Read Full Review

    The book is far from a game-changer in the realm of Star Wars comics, though getting to spend time with an underrated character makes for a rewarding experience for all prequel supporters out there. Read Full Review

    QUI-GON JINN #1 is a great, albeit simple, little one-and-done Star Wars story that's perfect for fans of the prequel era. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kaasen Koy Dec 5, 2018

    Had this been a standalone issue, not under the Age of Republic marquee, it would be almost impossible to explain how this ideawas published. It's a strange "elfin tree priestess versus the purple goblins" story wrapped around a gorgeous and mysterious vision sequence. Then its all oversimplified by writing that announces straightforward themes left ambiguous by the art. Still, it's some beautiful new work in an era Marvel has barely touched and the visual story is not only worth the price of admission, but it might also be enough to balance out the deficiency of the written story.
