    A fantastic origin story for Arihnda Pryce, with a certain Chiss entering her life. The story is full of nefarious characters looking to further their goals and the art brings the individuals to life sensationally. Not action packed, but full of constant tension. Read Full Review

    STAR WARS: THRAWN #3 centralizes on a new character who parallels Thrawn in more ways than one, therefore expanding the journey of our titular villain. Read Full Review

    After a brief dip last issue (which was the fault of the source material not this creative team) this issue rocks back onto the stage, with political intrigue on Coruscant. Thrawn's fate starts to become intertwined with Pryce's and it is made clear that she is prepared to walk a political tightrope to get ahead in Palpatine's Empire. Great art and a wonderful story, the only point to make is that this issue necessarily has a reliance on the preceding issues, so it can't be recommended as a standalone issue (so make sure to read issues 1 and 2 for maximum enjoyment).

    Star Wars: Thrawn #3 gives a lot of text and dialogue to digest, but it is a compelling tale of politics and revenge. Pryce is a very compelling character, even if it is a bit odd to devote an entire issue of a book called Thrawn to her. That said, I can still recommend this one wholeheartedly. Give it a read.

    Pryce isn't as interesting as Thrawn and Vanto doesn't even get a speaking line in this book I think but the connections forged here are interesting and help expand on what comes down the line. It feels natural here and will have an impact on what Thrawn is doing because she's also able to help nudge things for him as well, which provides a good working relationship for the two that won't last when the power imbalance really hits. I like what the creative team is doing here and the choices made with what to adapt and compress and where to expand. And I really enjoyed seeing Luke Ross tackle Coruscant because in a weird way, and I mean this totally as a compliment, it felt like it touched on some classic 70's Star Wars Marvel Comics style and design for costuming, which is wholly appropriate. Very fun stuff. Read Full Review

    Fans of Pryce are sure to love this issue, with those of us who might be indifferent about her at least get a better grasp of her backstory. Read Full Review

    That being said, there are some great moments. I liked seeing Thrawns ridiculous disguise in the diner scene, of course, and all of Pryces outfits are great. And again, Ill buy this issue because I dont want Disney to think Pryce isnt worth marketing, as she certainly is. But if you take one thing from this, its that this comic is not a decent substitute for the book. Read Full Review
