    Kanan's journey is far from over; Weisman makes that clear enough. Despite only being two issues in, Kanan: The Last Padawan easily asserts itself as one of the best Star Wars books Marvel's doing and one of the best Star Wars books period. The emotional gravitas we have for Kanan is profound - I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say that we want nothing more than to have him be safe from the Empire's clutches. If these past two issues are any indication, though, there's still a lot more strife in Kanan's future before he matures to the character we've come to know in Star Wars: Rebels. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Forrest Hollingsworth May 8, 2015

    Sure, this comic is all the stronger if you’re familiar with Rebels but it’s a good read even if you’re not and, that’s an accomplishment worthy of note in and of itself. Read Full Review

    Definitely a must-read for Star Wars Rebels fans " enough so that I hope for an ongoing Star Wars Reels comic series as well. Read Full Review

    It should come as no surprise that hiring Greg Weisman to script a comic book spinoff to Star Wars: rebels would result in one more solid entry in Marvel's Star Wars lineup. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies May 11, 2015

    Whilst this may be the ongoing Star Wars book that's receiving the least attention at the moment, it's certainly up there with the likes of Darth Vader and Jason Aaron's core title in terms of quality, as the creative team knocks it out of the park to deliver a really strong issue that fans of both Rebels and the wider Star Wars Universe will still enjoy.

    Kanan is turning out to be a breath of fresh air. The story of the character provides the reader with a unique spotlight on life as a child, being trained to be a Jedi, at a time when all the Jedi are murdered by the Clones. The book has plenty of action, moves at a fast pace and gives a cliffhanger for the reader to want more. The book may not have Han, Chewie, Luke and Leia but it is making its own mark and proving to be a superior read than the other Star Wars comics because you don't know where this character is going next. I am enjoying this book and this issue delivers Order 66 in a way that kept me heavily entertained. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alice W. Castle May 11, 2015

    It could have been very easy to overlook this book in favour of Marvel's other offerings from the galaxy far, far away, but you'd be missing out on one hell of a book. Read Full Review

    The events of Kanan: The Last Padawan #2 sets the stage for things to come nicely, as though the tempo and overall quality isn't that different from the average opening issue, there's still a lot to love about this issue. I'd also urge fans that haven't viewed Star Wars: Rebels to check this out, as it's extremely new reader friendly. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene May 11, 2015

    The next installment will most likely deal with some post Episode III elements. This is really intriguing since we've read about that time period in novels such as Tarkin and A New Dawn. However, we get to actually see some of them unfold in this canon shepherd by the Lucasfilm story group. Read Full Review
