Known as the skilled co-pilot of the infamous Millennium Falcon, the legendary Wookiee warrior CHEWBACCA will star in his very own limited comic series! After the battle of Yavin, Chewbacca is on his own when he crash lands his ship on an Imperial occupied planet. Now stranded, Chewie finds himself caught in the middle of trying to return to the rebellion and helping a young and feisty girl in need. Writer Gerry Duggan (DEADPOOL, 1872, HULK) and artist Phil Noto (BLACK WIDOW, X-23, UNCANNY X-FORCE) bring us a never-before-seen tale of the heroic Wookiee we all know and love.

    The story does feel ultimate inconsequential, and not as tied to the main events as the the other books in the current Star Wars series, but that might just be part of its charm. Read Full Review

    With Chewbacca #2, Gerry Duggan and Phil Noto have created a tonally faithful Star Wars tale filtered through the eyes of a child. Duggan and Noto have no time for shades of grey here, as writer and artist work in unison to deliver a bright and exciting moment of escapism with just enough character development to strengthen one of the least substantial characters of the Star Wars universe.

    Chewbacca #2 was a solid continuation to this latest Star Wars mini-series, with the creative team creating a great balance between excitement and drama. They also continue to capture the tone of this Wookie perfectly, as Chewbacca becomes the hero we all know and love. Read Full Review

    Duggan and Noto's Chewbacca comic isn't about to take the world by storm, but it's definitely an enjoyable adventure starring the big, furry lug. Read Full Review

    The story itself remains thin at best, as Chewie continues to aid the plucky slave girl, Zarro, but this is one of those rare occurrences where style can trump substance. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 29, 2015

    The second of five issues for the Chewbacca series gives us the breakout, teases a bit of what Jaum's plan is (which isn't worth caring about) and provides for an easy cliffhanger with no meaning because we know Chewie's not dead. The general idea here isn't bad but this series really feels like it should have been an anthology of Chewie stories as standalone issues rather than something that may run over the course of five issues. It's decently and competently put together, but there's nothing exciting or engaging about it in the way that all of the other Star Wars books have been. Sadly, the Chewbacca series is the weakest of the books to date. Read Full Review

    "Chewbacca" is a comic that features great artwork but a badly executed story. The story has confusing choices that the characters make that are compounded by a poorly conceived rescue operation plot. The book seems to struggle with presenting a story through a child's eyes as it deals with some fairly adult material (is it typical to have a character call someone a bastard in Star Wars?). This series needs a tighter script and editorial hand because the art can only save so much issue to issue. I do not recommend this comic. Read Full Review
