    A really fun issue that leaves us with a cliffhanger that would make the old Flash Gordon movie serials from the 1930s and 40s blush. Read Full Review

    There continues to be a basic kind of fun to this property and it's enjoyable as a kind of simple space opera romp. At times it doesn't feel very Star Wars-y outside of the characters being used but it has at least captured the right voice for Han at this point in time and just seeing him and Chewie fall into problematic situations is fun. I'm curious to see how things go with the next installment and where the series finds itself after the first storyline. Part of it is just figuring out the nature of the character and property with that first storyline and getting a better handle on the next, so I'm holding out hope that it can come together better. But if not, it's still a fun romp that you can treat lightly and enjoy without trying to connect things too hard – for the most part. Read Full Review

    While some other Star Wars comics from Marvel are struggling to find the right balance of ensemble stories, Han Solo & Chewbacca makes it look effortless, as supporting characters are injected as necessary to help support the main narrative while also intriguing readers with hints about how these fringe figures connect to other corners of the galaxy far, far away.

    This one was far better than the last, though I wish they didn't make Khel's ship look exactly like the millennium falcon. Not sure what they were doing there.

    I like the fact that all of the crew he's wronged in the past has come back and I also like the reveal that the guy is not really his dad. I was hoping that was the case, but you never know with writers today. They like to mess with cannon. I also like the look of the new villain.

    Let's see what happens next. With so many Star Wars titles, I won't be able to continue this one if it's not a mini-series.
