    I would say that this is a good example of an anthology story done right. A lot of the times the stories can come across as rushed or unimportant because they have a much smaller page count than a miniseries or ongoing but this was an engaging story that felt full and satisfying.

    It's great to see Greedo in action and the book's object of desire is revealed. I really liked the story, giving this infamous second shot (that's right, I went there) his due as a gunman. The visuals are good, creating excellent action and great looking aliens. The colors were a bit too pale, muting some of the dynamic panels, and the letters continue to contain the flaws of previous Star Wars books. The latter two elements don't hurt the book considerably, but this could have been a classic tale. This is one to track down. Read Full Review

    Three stories come together nicely in this blast from the past Star Wars tale with plenty of surprises. There's a key bounty hunter that literally steals the show and will have fans cheering. Read Full Review

    The issue is a solid one as this series feels like it's improving. The ability to blend together so many eras of Star Wars is impressive. At the same time the issue really drives home it's writing its own new addition to that history. This is becoming a surprisingly fun series that's a perfect summer read. Read Full Review

    Reading more about Greedo's fate makes for an entertaining adventure, despite not really offering much information about the Black Spire outpost, so while the book has a solid mix of action and humor, the concept of the series still feels squandered. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - olddeserthymnal May 23, 2019

    While Sliney's art and Sanhez-Almara's colors are bright and attractive, narratively this series doesn't seem to know what it is trying to achieve. If it is flashback style tales that are desirable then last issue did this in a much more controlled way. If original stories told at Galaxy's Edge are the end goal, then we have barely gotten to know the characters in the two issues to date. If it is selling tickets to a Galaxy's Edge Disney theme park then I'm not sure this comic format will work unless the stories become a lot more gripping in the remaining installments.
