    Captain Phasma #2 continues the hot streak of the first issue, with writer Kelly Thompson laying down an epic tale for a classic Star Wars character in the making. I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    The detailed line-work, the massive sense of scale and the vivid color work all combine to form the most attractive Star Wars comic Marvel is currently publishing. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 26, 2017

    As I expected from the first issue and the structure of the series in general, Captain Phasma won't be a revelation about who she is and her past. It'll be a look at small approved pieces of her personality and how she'd operate in a situation like this after the events of the destruction of Starkiller base. And that's just fine for me. Thompson is moving things along smoothly and with purpose and I can imagine it being a great subplot to follow in a larger interim work between films. Marco Checchetto's artwork with Andres Mossa is the bigger winner here as they bring it to life and just make it exciting, beautiful, and intriguing. I love the worlds that Checchetto delivers in his Star Wars books and the pairing with Mossa is a match made in heaven when it comes to the end result. A gorgeous looking book from start to finish that I think, when read in full, will be an even stronger work that delivers on showing more of Phasma in a great way. Read Full Review

    This story continues to work from issue to issue. I enjoy Phasma's desperation, but I enjoy her stoic resolve more. Can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    A slight improvement over last issue, but more for a supporting character than Phasma. The visuals dip into using photographs, which occasionally distract, but TN-3965's look won me over. A decent fix for those who are in need of a Star Wars hit. Read Full Review
