    This adaptation picks up on the emotional resonance that seemed to be missing in the film and doubles down on it by removing some pointless scenes with corny humor and adding other scenes that give much needed character development. Read Full Review

    A good adaptation of the source material that deviates little from the original " for better or worse. With a competent art package, this will appeal to fans of the movie who want a bit more out of it. Read Full Review

    The comic adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi does a lot of good things, but it's not perfect. Read Full Review

    Honestly, if you haven't seen the movie, spend the money from this series on the Blu-Ray and if you've seen the movie, this issue isn't worth reading. I just think trying to cram an entire movie into 6 issues, means so much of the movie has been lost and trying to squeeze in some additional scenes in as well, just results in an average experience and ultimately feels a little pointless. I'd recommend trying out the Star Wars or Darth Vader series instead. Read Full Review

    If it came out before we could at least get a look at what to expect. This book just falls flat and is an easy pass. Unless you're a hardcore Star Wars fan who needs to own every piece of Star Wars literature out there. Read Full Review

    Marvel's adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi captures little of what made the movie so great. Read Full Review

    I went into this desperately hoping to finally find a visual format that I could use as a substitute for watching the film. I may want to watch Episodes I to IX some time, and omit The Last Jedi. In which case I would have dearly loved a good Star Wars comic to fill the gap between Episodes VII and IX. Alas, yet again Marvel Star Wars just takes their eye off the ball. We know they can produce a high caliber book, but too often they just toss their books at us like Luke tossing his lightsaber at some Porgs. Hang your head in shame Marvel Star Wars, you blew it. Still better than the film though. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jun 29, 2018

    Marvel has a terrible track record with the visuals of their three Disney Star Warsadaptations, and this continues that depressing streak. The story has fun inclusions, but the visuals are horrible. The art, colors, and letters look as though they're from a first time independent publisher. This book is an injustice for Marvel andStar Warsfans. Read Full Review
