    Gary Whitta's writing is also crisp, fleshing out some moments with dialogue or narration that helps add momentum to the events of the film. But sometimes the comic dwells on certain scenes that we don't need to see, as if it's checking of boxes. Read Full Review

    This adaptation has some fun additions to the film, but the visuals hinder any joy in reading it. The colors are much improved this issue, but the sounds keep the letters from receiving a higher score. It's hard to believe that this book is part of the same franchise of books that have such superior visuals. A really mixed bag. Only for hard core Star Wars fans. Read Full Review

    Yes, I hate this adaptation as much as I hate the film. I had sincerely hoped it would be good so that it could take the film's place in my rewatches. How this is going to be strung out for another 4 issues I do not know, it will make the most excruciatingly long cinematic "space chase" scene into the most excruciatingly long comic book plots. Gary Whitta should probably not bother with comics again, this is terribly written. The art meanwhile is woeful. I mean look at the page above, Leia looks like she has been hit in the face with a frying pan or someone who experimented with budget plastic surgery. Sorry folks, but I'll continue to review the whole series in the hopes that things improve. Maybe the series will subvert my expectations. Read Full Review
