    Crait's past doesn't begin in The Last Jedi, but here and there are plenty of dangers to encounter. The story is fun, capturing these characters' personalities well, as well as teasing more from the planet than shown in the film. The artwork is flat out amazing and instantly makes this a must-own comic for Star Wars fans. Read Full Review

    Read Star Wars: The Storms of Crait. Sure, it doesnt exactly have too much to do with the movie besides the location, but it is a great story that should be read. Read Full Review

    The Storms Of Crait is a nice little one shot for fans wanting to know a little more about Crait, but it doesn't give anything away that most people wouldn't have worked out from watching “The Last Jedi”. With aphotorealistic realistic style and featuring all the major characters plus great action, it's a easy recommendation for Star Wars fans. Read Full Review

    A good adventure that hits all the things a Star Wars fan would want, but it lacks a story that has purpose. Read Full Review

    Mayhew's art captures the look of the main characters, and Leia looks photo realistic. That may turn some fans off, but I quite enjoyed it even though at times she looks real and Luke looks "drawn". I'd definitely recommend reading this if you're a fan, although it is by no means required reading and of all the questions left unanswered by the movie, this was probably the least interesting one. At the end of this issue there's a preview of the next one-shot which shows Benicio Del Toro's character behind bars. He was my least favorite character in the movie so I'm hoping that his one-shot can turn him into a character I enjoy. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Young Dec 30, 2017

    STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI -- THE STORMS OF CRAIT #1 is a satisfactory and safe standalone comic in the STAR WARS Universe. It does not take any risks as far as Ben Blacker and Ben Acker's story is concerned. Revisiting our favorite characters is fun and the art is beautiful, but that is not enough to save this comic.

    Star Wars: The Storms of Crait #1 adds little to The Last Jedi but makes the most of the Original Trilogy cast. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 27, 2017

    The comic feels like opportunity lost. While the story has some interesting aspects, it doesn't deliver enough to make the comic feel like it's needed. Some mysteries are better left is what this comic teaches us. This is one of the few misses in Marvel's entries into a world far, far, away. Read Full Review

    Ultimately The Storms of Crait is merely okay and doesn't stand out as a must-read. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kate Kosturski Dec 29, 2017

    There's nothing original or outstanding with this story besides a location that is new to the Star Wars universe and easily recognizable from its movie appearance. Decently executed art can't save a cookie-cutter story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Dec 31, 2017

    Well. What can one say? Having read almost all of the Marvel Star Wars output, some of the more recent offerings have been atrocious. The Yoda arc was awful in the main Star Wars title, and the Mace Windu series was just a joke. This was worst offering yet. I can almost hear the editorial team laughing and having bets to see how low the comic book standards can go in this part of Marvel. Meanwhile, fans keep handing over hard earned cash to buy the crap because they simply love Star Wars. Even the good issues are entirely peripheral and meaningless to Lucasfilm's stated objective of creating an interconnected "canon" across comics, books, TV series and films. At the end of the day, Marvel Star Wars know that the house always wins. When it comes to Star Wars fans they take the view that Rey got it right on Jakku, "the garbage will do". Read Full Review
