    I wasn't prepared to like this book, but I did. Being a Star Wars junkie, I had to check it out. The story expands DJ a bit, though only in how he operates his funds and life on Canto Bight. I would be more than welcome to more tales of this character if the same team were to create them. The visuals are fantastic, with DJ resembling Del Toro well. I enjoyed this DJ more so than the character in the The Last Jedi. He has much more to do. This was an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Star Wars Marvel keeps churning out the garbage, Star Wars fans keep buying the garbage. Having to review this garbage is a fate worse than death. I'd rather be locked in an empty cell in Canto Bight - it might be more interesting. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 6, 2018

    While I was definitely looking forward to this book I didn't have high expectations for it as I figured they weren't going to dig too far into the character's past just yet since the movie just hit and all of this was put together before it. The character is one that I really enjoyed in the film so getting a little more time with him here is definitely fun. Acker and Blacker captured his nuances as well as you can in comic form and Walker and Deering give us a pretty fun look at Canto Bight with a range of creatures and locations that could easily be explored a whole lot more. It's a decent standalone piece, not one that I think would convert non-readers into comic readers, but for those of us looking for little pieces to get a bit more out of the overall shared universe it's definitely worth the trip through it.

    If your coming to this comic expecting to learn more about DJ, you'll be disappointed, since we learn very little about him or his past, since the events of the comic only take place maybe hours before the events of "The Last Jedi". It's a fine one shot but nothing really happens. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 31, 2018

    There was plenty of potential for this comic to flesh out and enhance the title character. But as with all of Marvel's post-Return of the Jedi comics, the story never deviates from a narrow, established path. Apart from the always pleasing art of Kev Walker, this comic has too little to offer hungry Star Wars readers. Read Full Review
