    Give me more! I loved the new setting, new characters, and the inclusion of some classic faces involved in a job gone wrong. I want to learn more about this cast and would love to see more of this location. The visuals are highly detailed and Han and Chewie's portion of the tale looks great. This is how to debut a new Star Wars series. Reading this book will only increase fans' desire to go to the Disney theme parks. I was already excited, now I'm on fire. Read Full Review

    As a Star Wars story, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge captures the fun action, peculiar world and characters very well. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge #1 is an interesting debut but on its own it's rather forgetable as is. Maybe as the series progresses there'll be more there to truly make it interesting but beyond new characters there's little to hook long time Star Wars fans or comic readers. Read Full Review

    Were the book titled anything else, it would be a more effective experience, leaving us to wonder why this is called "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" in the first place. Read Full Review

    While this book does have some energy, it also recycles the same tropes we've seen with Star Wars stories for years. Read Full Review

    On balance this is an average first issue without a terribly interesting primary or secondary story. The new characters do look appealing however, and hopefully in the remainder of the series we see much more of them in order to fully flesh out the content of future issues. Read Full Review

    Not the first issue I was thinking I'd get and while I'd pass on this one, next month might be a different story. Read Full Review

    Overall the issue introduces some really interesting threads and ideas that I can't wait to see explored more both here and elsewhere, but suffers because of an unengaging flashback story. I almost wish the series was set entirely in the present. Part of me suspects the flashbacks are here because they aren't ready to dedicate that much time to exploring Black Spire Outpost in this time period yet until after the park opens. Read Full Review
