Its not as good as the first two annuals but its still an entertaining extended story. Han's character get explored a little bit and his past comes back to bite him. Its certainly nothing essential but still enjoyable overall. Especially if you love a good Han and Leia team up.

This issue continues to be interesting. I don't think it has the exploration of character that some fans have hoped but there is one pretty obviously shout out to the Phasma novel that I am currently reading. It details Phasma's drive and confidence in completing the mission that will keep her credibility alive.

Vader's role in this issue is a lot smaller than the cover teases. It seems like this issue is more of a filler for the next issue just to be able to fill a trade paperback. Nothing really special goes on here but there could be some good moments in the next book.

Great issue. Vader still feels a little bit of conflict and we are able to see how divided he is in this comic and that he may have had more options then we think when we meet him in A New Hope. This is a comic all fans should be reading.

I'm all for a comic that takes place during the new trilogy era and Captain Phasma appears to be leading right into The Last Jedi as it explains how she gets out of the trash compactor she is thrown into. There isn't a lot of character explanation but Phasma does show that she's not afraid to throw anyone under the bus to keep herself clean.

This Star Wars adventure series is for kids and Lucasfilm made fans very aware of that when they announced it. The dialogue is very kid friendly but its a nice and long issue that gives some interesting little tidbits that Marvel would've never explored in the other series.

This book is the Star Wars that I like to see in comic form. Its the Han Solo that we love from the original trilogy and you can tell that Jason Aaron is making some attempts to bridge the gap and develop the characters so they feel more natural when we hit Empire Strikes Back. This issue is fun and its the smuggling Han and Chewie that we haven't seen much of so far.

I thought this was a great issue that gives fans a great look into Mace Windu as a leader. Windu struggles with the thought of going to war even though he is going to one of the Jedi that are relied on to lead the Republic to victory. He surrounds himself with some characters that could be pretty interesting too. Not much action so far but it will come.

There isn't a lot of strength to the reasoning that these characters get together in the first place. There is also no Scott Summers in this comic at all, but there are some good character moments and the story takes a darker turn than you would expect considering this is a book aimed at younger audiences. There is some potential here.

We have been dealing with the fact that many people do agree with Sam as the new Captain America for a while now and it continues in this issue as Sam reflects on the loss of Rhodey and the parallels between his new position and Rhodey as Ironman. This issue is an emotional one that tries to show the cost of what Civil War will be. It works as a good tie-in, but the art does not have that same imp more

Its nice a nice treat to have one oversized issue cover one whole complete story revolving around many different characters.

Black Krrsantan finally gets some of the coverage that we've been waiting for. Krrsantan has been detailed as a badass but his back story was avoided until this extended annual issue. Aphra gets some attention as well but Krrsantan is the star of the show. Now lets move on.
