    Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Max Rebo #1 is a fantastic exploration into the seedy underbelly of the Star Wars universe through the perspective of a gritty noir. Max Rebo is presented as more than just a strange background character, with a hopefully robust future for his character. Read Full Review

    Overall, Max Rebo is a fine addition to theReturn of the Jedione-shots Marvel has released for the film's 40thanniversary. It's a joy to see Rebo getting an adventure of his own, while giving readers insight into how he went from Jabba's sail barge to the club in The Mandalorian. Read Full Review

    I won't say I went in with high expectations here or low expectations as I've mostly enjoyed the other stories in this batch of one-shots. That said, it's one of the weaker ones but it avoids leaning too hard into what it wants to do here with Rebo's past, the music, and so forth. It works well by going as another point of view piece to events of the film more than anything else and it's almost cute and charming more often than not. It's got a good flow and reads well with largely fun artwork that digs into some of the smaller issues that exist in Jabba's palace. It's more fun than I thought it would be but is still going to be one of the more forgettable pieces as even though Rebo is narrating it he feels like a secondary character at best in it.

    Fans of the character should check out this expansion of his lore, but the book doesn't do much more to justify such an expounding. Read Full Review
