    Another exceptional installment of this fun film. The story follows the movie, but includes a new scene that expands the characters. The visuals are the best of any of Marvel's Star Wars adaptations. This is a comic book that should be in every fan's collection. Read Full Review

    This chapter of the adaptation is basically directly ripped from Solo: A Star Wars Story, playing out exactly as fans had expected, though Robbie Thompson's writing makes the sequence function more efficiently than seen in the film. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kaasen Koy Nov 21, 2018

    Solo: A Star Wars Story #2 doubles down on the failures of the first issue and all but confirms that the series won't work. The way the film has been adapted does not work with the medium to which it's being adapted. It's ill-fitting, obligatory, and uninspired. That said, it is hopelessly faithful to the film - you'd be hard-pressed to find a comic adaptation that crams more of the source material into its pages. While not particularly resonant or effective, it is utilitarian and meticulous. If you're looking for an illustrated abridgment of the film script to keep on your smartphone, this is probably your best option. Otherwise, spend the cover price of this issue on the movie rental and get the same dialogue - in the medium it was written for. Read Full Review
