Mitt'hraw'nuruodo, better known as Lieutenant Thrawn of the Galactic Empire, has graduated the Imperial Academy with the highest marks possible, as well as been assigned his own personal assistant, Ensign Eli Vanto, but that doesn't mean that everyone in the Imperial army wants him to succeed. Tensions run high in the ranks of the Empire as Thrawn continues to defeat new enemies.

    Seeing Thrawn in action is neat to see, but so is attach Vanto who is growing as well. Especially enjoyable was how Vanto is being courted by others to take down the Chiss. A solid story with strong visuals that's a schemer's delight. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 20, 2018

    The Thrawn miniseries isn't working quite as hard as some of the other Star Wars books to incorporate elements from the various films and other properties and comes across more as just trying to expand its own thing here. And that's perfect. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 16, 2018

    Thrawn #2 is a solid read. The wordiness kills the pacing to a point, but Thrawn is a highly engaging lead, the plot is interesting, and the art holds together well throughout. This one is still recommended. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Mar 19, 2018

    If you loved the first issue, but felt that this one was a bit dull by comparison, I would suggest that you stick with this mini-series. This was one of the duller elements of the source novel, and there are better aspects still to come. If I may be so bold, I would recommend that you stick with this until issue 3, and in the meantime simply enjoy the fine art. Much like Thrawn himself would. Read Full Review
