    While the Han Solo miniseries is lighting a huge fire under me, it is presenting an interesting take on the character after the events of A New Hope and showing him a path forward with what he really wants out of life in how to feel alive. The story isn't too much here because it's focused heavily on the race and getting us to connect with the key personalities afterward as the Empire moves in, but it serves things well to establish more of what's to come. Liu feels more comfortable in the characters this time around and I like the flow of the book, made even more engaging thanks to what Brooks and Vines bring to it with their layouts and in capturing the race itself. It's a great looking book, particularly thanks to Oback's color work that gives it some extra juice and pop, that has me curious to see how it plays out and just how well it reads as a single read in trade form down the line.

    A fun read that would have been better had several computer blurs not marred the visuals. The episodes after the first leg of the race were very well done. I'm not a Han Solo fan, but I'm interested to see where this is going. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jul 12, 2016

    This comic book does a great job at juggling storylines too. There's the Dragon Void race, Han and Chewie's mission to rescue Rebel operatives, and the Empire have shown up. There's enough for any reader to sink their teeth into, and Marvel have done the right thing by giving this majorly popular character his own series. We're intrigued as to where the story will go next month, and we'll be getting stuck into issue #3 as soon as it's available! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 7, 2016

    If nothing else, this Han Solo mini-series justifies its existence because it finally allows Mark Brooks to transition from drawing covers to rendering a complete Star Wars adventure. Read Full Review

    A fun, if slight, Solo detour. Read Full Review

    Han Solo #2 wasn't quite as impressive as the first issue, but still an enjoyable read. Moving the Dragon Void race forward in an engaging fashion, the creative team gave us plenty to get excited about. Unfortunately this was dampened slightly by a semi-predictable ending that lacked the proper focus and depth. Read Full Review

    The book was good, maybe not one that I'm going to go out of my way to buy, but I will read the rest of the series once it's on Marvel unlimited or maybe in trade paper back. Still if you like Star Wars you probably will be happy to pick this one up. Read Full Review
