    I'm interested in seeing what comes in the next arc. Issue #3 wrapped up the first one and it looks like Issue #4 will pick up chronologically. I had wondered how the series would progress. It could have gone linear like the majority of the Star Wars series or bounced around like Kanan did. But the next issue continues with Poe and BB-8 hot on Lor San Tekka's trail – and apparently also going to jail. Read Full Review

    The fact that this book stars a beloved character from a beloved movie isn't enough, we need more characterization and even some razzle dazzle to make us fall in love with this cast and story. Read Full Review

    When it comes down to it, this just wasn’t a very thrilling installment. I want to reiterate that I have hope for this book. All the right pieces are there, and there is no arguing with the degree of talent, but it is taking longer to get everyone on the same page than I would like. This is Star Wars Light, I want the real thing. Read Full Review

    At this stage of the book I'm really getting the feeling that this book isn't for me. It's far too reminiscent of the same issues I had on the Chewbacca series in terms of story and what they view the intended audience as combined with artwork that just doesn't click for it. The three issue story is one that didn't answer anything, didn't really expand on the characters or clarify or detail anything useful about this time period and its design. It's a simple action space opera piece with the weakest of space opera elements. I'll be sticking around more because, yes, I am that kind of Star Wars sucker, but I'm in that rare mode where I'm hoping for a wholesale creative change. Read Full Review

    It makes perfect sense to capitalize off of the success of one of the stand out characters of the Force Awakens. What doesn't make sense is the time period they chose to tell their story and what's even more confusing is making this an ongoing series. It's a very constricted stage within the Star Wars saga so it can't help itself but to be dragged out. It also fails to grab any intrigue or investment because we know what lies ahead. The artwork is detailed but its a simple case of the style not capturing what's required. Read Full Review

    Comics are ultimately a business about figuring out a creator's strengths, and then leveraging them to them to the best of your abilities. When it comes to critical acclaim, I can understand the appeal of putting Charles Soule and Phil Noto together on a book " but this isn't the book for them. Phil Noto's typically beautiful art winds up coming across as a misfire here, but that ultimately wouldn't matter given the fact that the story here is a derivative, out-of-left-field swerve that feels in need of a total rewrite. "You haven't won. You've simply lost in a somewhat creative fashion," Terex tells Dameron. But after reading this issue, I'd say he's only about half right. Read Full Review
