    I continue to enjoy this series for how it breaks away from your expectations of a Star Wars story. It also continues to develop its characters well while giving us what we want: Tie-Fighter action and plenty of explosions to go along with it. Read Full Review

    I do think that this will be a series that will read better in full with twists like this but it's genuinely fun and engaging month to month that I'm eager to see what's next and don't want to wait. But that's where I am with most of Jody Houser's books these days. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner May 20, 2019

    Through writing, artwork, and colors, "Star Wars: TIE Fighter" #2 gives a view into a very sympathetic portrayal of Imperial pilots without requiring us to feel worse about the rebellion. Read Full Review

    Overall it's a solid second installment in a promising miniseries. I look forward to seeing it develop further and I look forward to seeing how Alphabet Squadron interwines with it shortly. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jun 3, 2019

    Decent story of Imperials finding conflict from others after the events of Return of the Jedi, but the visuals don't help it. Sketchy artwork and good to confusing coloring hurt the impact of this tale. If this is intended to get me excited to purchase the upcoming Alphabet Squadron novel, it's not working.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - olddeserthymnal May 15, 2019

    This issue primarily serves as a bridge from the opening installment to the remainder of the series and performs that role solidly with a bit of excitement along the way. There is a sense of the issue feeling like it is over before it starts due to the back up story, and as such there are now pointers that this might be a series that reads better in trade. As with the last issue, the art is solid and impressive and this issue continues the stylish fresh look of the series. Not an issue to be read in isolation – if you've been in since issue 1 keep going, otherwise maybe wait for the trade on this one. Read Full Review

    After two issues, the book feels as though it's still setting the audience up for excitement more than giving us something to be excited by, which could build towards a rewarding payoff, but results in a disappointing experience thus far. Read Full Review
