    I love a good space dog fight and I've yearned for a new space flight sim in the Star Wars universe (like the classic X-wing and Tie Fighter series)… but until we get a worthy addition of one of those… this comic series is a good substitute. Epic space battles and a new perspective on the battle of “good and evil” in the Star Wars universe. Grab this edition to complete the story arc or use it as an excuse to go back and by the earlier additions and this one and read them all in one sitting… for the Empire! Read Full Review

    The Star Wars: TIE Fighter series did a lot of interesting things with its characters and situations, giving us a look at life on the other side while not really trying to have it both ways like some of the Clone Wars elements did. Read Full Review

    I still enjoyed the series a decent amount. The art is always on point and I care about most of the characters, which is still something I probably wouldn't have expected before the first issue. The ending of the main section of the issue does establish an interesting playground for the future and I'm looking forward to seeing more from this series, assuming it does get more.

    Did you see the trailer for The Mandalorian though? That's the Star Wars content I'm looking for. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - olddeserthymnal Aug 21, 2019

    Great cover, solid art and bland story. A series that really got meexcited with the first couple of issues fizzles out like a TIE Fighter in battlewith a wing missing. There was a fundamental flaw with this seriesthat isn't new to the modern Star Wars canon. Maybe that flaw is moreof a Story Group decision but unfortunately it reflects on the taletold here. A very weak finish which undermines the stronger earlyissues. Disappointing. Read Full Review

    This final issue, like the rest of the series, feels like a misfire, though devout fans of the Empire might appreciate seeing a story depicting TIE pilots as quasi-heroes. Read Full Review
