    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Oct 13, 2021

    This entire issue is so simple but executed so well. The characters are fresh and interesting, the setting are exciting, the tone is ominous and incredible art makes this a series that raises the standards of what a Star Wars comic can be. The High Republic has given us such a rich plethora of story-telling and such a rich cast that we almost want to simply get to know our current characters better. But the inclusion of the more adult characters and noir tone make this a new epic worth following. Read Full Review

    The mysteries only get deeper in this first issue. Holt finds herself in danger and Emerick finds himself in wonder. It will be very interesting to see how these characters stories end up overlapping. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 20, 2021

    The idea of tying together Star Wars and detective story isn't something I expected. The Emerick and Sian storylines feel very disconnected in the issue which has enough mystery going on without needing to add how the two tales supposedly will fit together. While an interesting idea, I don't know that there's enough here for me to come back and search for any answers. Read Full Review

    Trail of Shadows wants to bring mystery and noir to the Star Wars universe, but the book kicks off with some shaky execution. Read Full Review
