    A fantastic read for all ages. This is one of the best Star Wars series Marvel has made. Read Full Review

    I will miss Chewbacca as I miss Lando. They were both bright spots in my long term comic collecting journey and were fun to write about (which I thought would be the most difficult aspect of reviewing, it's sometimes much easier to write about a books flaws than its virtues. These are comics I would (and have) happily read to my kid and I hope Marvel continues down this accessible path with some of its Star Wars titles. Read Full Review

    Chewbacca #5 may not be perfect, but it definitely brings this warm, exciting story to a fitting conclusion. It also gives some intriguing insight into the character's role in the Rebellion and just why it is so important to him. Read Full Review

    Is “Chewbacca” #5 particularly deep? Is it going to change the fabric of the Star Wars universe as we know it? Not really. But it's a fun adventure that brings a new layer of depth to a fan favourite character (though that depth is obviously hampered by the inherent limitations of the character himself – namely the fact that Chewie's dialogue is all growls and barks) and introduces a new character who, while not exactly important, is a fun addition to the Star Wars universe. That's the thing about a franchise of this size: with everyone speculating over the new trilogy of films and Rogue One, everyone seems to be focused on the tent-pole, important moments and seem to forget that this whole thing is supposed to fun more than anything else.

    This wasn't a bad read, but hopefully Marvel's next mini-series will prove a bit more meaty. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 31, 2015

    The miniseries as a whole is a good read, and this final issue wraps it up nicely. But as a must read for Star Wars fans, it's low on the list. Still, there's solid moments throughout, and three pages here that are great. Hopefully we'll get more Chewie in the future, and a miniseries that gives us more depth about the furry warrior.

    "Chewbacca" wraps up with a decent, but average read. The book confirms the cute bond between Chewie and the little girl, Zarro. The comic puts the characters in situations that make it a little easier to get out of than potentially makes sense. The book has a lengthy epilogue that adds a little bit to the character of Chewie but it hard to reconcile with the light-hearted nature of the comic. This comic is a noble effort but an average read. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 31, 2015

    As much as I like Chewbacca, I knew going into this series that it was going to be a struggle since there wasn't going to be a proper translation element to it. Duggan and Noto put things together wrell enough, but the script was just far too formulaic and you knew where things were going to go early on. Read Full Review
