    Mace Windu, Asajj Ventress, Captain Rex, and Jar Jar Binks are all given abbreviated stories in this special, with each tale shedding new light on the characters. Read Full Review

    It's not as strong as an overall work could be as we've seen from the other one-shots but it's a way to tackle some additional characters in brief " though I think Ventress could have sustained her own easily. Read Full Review

    Two out of three isn't bad for the trio of tales in this special. The first story is standard comic book fare featuring Samuel L. Jackson's iconic Jedi. The second story is the highlight of the issue with the focus on Asajj Ventress. The final tale is a poor outing for Rex and Jar Jar. Worth picking up if one is a Star Wars fan. Read Full Review

    There's nothing particularly bad about Star Wars: Age of Republic: Special #1. Unfortunately, there's nothing particularly good either. It's simply a mildly entertaining collection of forgettable Star Wars tales. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kaasen Koy Jan 16, 2019

    Age of Republic Special #1 is another miss for the series and leaves behind the themes and focus of the regular issues. The first story " Mace Windu's " is the best and most complete, but the others are wasted potential or lacking potential altogether. Three different artistic teams deliver three different levels of quality and, again, Mace Windu's mission is the only one that impresses. None of them are good enough to make this a must-read.
