    It's always a joy to see Han, Leia, Luke, Chewie and the droids on a new adventure together. That's the main reason why I've been keeping up with these Star Wars volumes. The villains in this one were "meh," and the Larroca art was distracting (I could pinpoint the exact movie frames h...

    The fate of Jedha! I bought this in its single comic book issues, but I chosen this TPB edition to be able of making a better overall review. This TPB edition collects ?Star Wars? #38-43. This comic book run is set after the events of ?Star Wars IV: A New Hope?...

    More middle of the road star wars. Gillen took over from Aaron and to be honest I can't really tell. The characters are so established that there isn't much marvel or disney is going to let an author do creatively (I'm guessing here). The story has a pretty big tie into Rogue one and t...

    This is what happens when I wait too long to write a review. The specifics of this particular volume are fuzzy. I know the Rebels and the Imperials wanted to take control of an old Kyber crystal mine on the ruins of Jedha...you know, the planet that blew up at the end of Rogue One. I h...

    This graphic novel is a tie-in to Rogue One essentially. It takes place on Jedha. Characters from the movie are both mentioned and appear. This ongoing series is beginning to stagnate in my opinion. There's only so much that can happen with the main crew just going on small side missio...

    An intriguing semi-sequel to Rogue One, well told by new author Kieron Gillen, is much diminished by Salvador Larroca's continued afront to comic book art. Does he not know that many Star Wars fans will see the photorealistic images of Han's face and immediately know what scene from Em...

    I miss the days when Marvel put good artists on the Star Wars books. I liked Aaron?s run but this book needed a change of writer to help give it some freshness and Gillen is someone I welcome to the title. He?s usually a solid writer and has already worked in the new Star Wars cano...

    This run was a lot of fun and it included the whole gang. The story was really good and tied together more of Rogue One with our characters and how it's events impacted the Rebellion and what it means to be an alliance, despite the reasons that you fight. Luke discovers more about the ...

    The Screaming Citadel was as big a flashing red warning sign as there could?ve been that Kieron Gillen was NOT the writer to be taking over Star Wars from Jason Aaron and yet he still did. And The Ashes of Jedha is as terrible as The Screaming Citadel was. Right again, Marvel! Th...

    The newest (at the time of writing) entry in Marvel's on-going Star Wars series, that sees Luke, Han, Leia et al travel to the planet of Jedha between the events of 'A New Hope' and 'The Empire Strikes Back': the planet, that is, that first appeared in the relatively-recent movie 'Rogu...

    Ashes of Jedha may not be the worst of the new Marvel Star Wars line, but it?s definitely down towards the bottom...somewhere between Yoda?s Secret War and Obi-wan and Anakin. The problem isn?t with the idea of the story. Going back to Jedha seems kind of cool, especially sinc...

    Kieron Gillen graduates from Darth Vader and Doctor Aphra to the main Star Wars series as Luke, Leia, and Han head to the remains of the planet Jedha, destroyed during the events of Star Wars: Rogue One. I've really enjoyed all of Gillen's entries into the Star Wars universe so far,...

    Yay the good art is back! If only the storyline was as good as it was in the beginning. Since we're still between A New Hope and ESB I find it odd how mature Luke is in this volume. I did enjoy the connections with Rogue One, especially how it made Luke realize the sacrifices given by ...

    The story takes place after the events of Episode IV and Rogue One. Jedha is being destroyed by the Empire and the gang trying to figure out a way to destroy a huge city-sized imperialist machine. Luke wants to get more knowledge about the Force and learns about the importance of bein...

    Character's faces in this book have a strange finish applied which throws them into the uncanny valley. I think the artist was going for a photorealistic look (i.e. Alex Ross or Greg Land), but they failed miserably. ...

    Quick and instantly forgettable--yep, another Star Wars graphic novel. This one has a lot of references to Rogue One, which is good, since that's the best that Star Wars has been in the current era. But as is usually the case with these graphic novels, the story is really unnecessar...

    Keiron Gillen takes over the book from Jason Aaron and delivers a winning tale. In a Rogue One follow-up, Han, Luke, and Leia head to what's left of Jedha to help the local resistance keep the remaining kyber crystals out of the Empire's hand. The story feels a bit stretched at 6 issue...

    ASHES OF JEDHA is a sequel of sorts to the film ROGUE ONE. I've only seen the film once and that was on the big screen so I am not familiar enough with all of the characters and plot points to get the references made here. A friend needed to remind me what kyber crystals were, for exam...

    For the first time in the history of the newer Disney Star Wars comics, we have a new team on the book, and this first volume was really good, and really fun. We have the writer of the first Disney Star Wars Darth Vader series (which was excellent, most of the time, and I couldn't reco...

    Another decent Star Wars story, another five-to-six issues of horrendous Savlador Larroca art?in other words, hey, it?s another ?Star Wars? arc! I know there are some people who don?t mind Larroca?s photorealistic style, but me, it?s an immediate turn-off, and serves to c...

    Well-planned, with good moments. Gillen takes the main Star Wars title and hits the ground running, folding in Rogue One elements and even bringing along some characters from his Darth Vader run. ...

    Not bad. I liked it. They touched on a lot of "different views" type stuff and it was interesting to see how the main characters dealt with things like that. In this one, you can also see how the characters are learning and changing into the people we see in episodes 5 and 6, which I t...

    Ehh I wanted to like it, but it found it pretty unremarkable. Gillen's style shines when Skywalker is dealing with the pseudo-cultists, but it just doesn't make much sense for the rest of the plot. Speaking of sense, lack thereof - Jedha somehow being inhabitable despite having molten ...

    I like the way that this story ties the main OT characters to Rogue One but other than that it isn?t too different from your average Star Wars story line. That isn?t a bad thing necessarily but I had hoped that Gillen would bring a fresh voice to the line. My only real complaint is...

    The OG Star Wars characters face the fate of the Rogue One crew. I have been looking forward to this one for a while, but I must say I was a little disappointed. It was ok, but not as a good as it couldve been. Very cool to see Benthic, one of the "Two Tubes" in Rogue One (2016), inter...

    On certain subjects and fields so many tons of ink have been written that the mere pretension of adding something new appears as smug or illusory as, in the end, merely useless. Hence, almost unconsciously, we put ourselves on guard against an author who dares to publish a new essay on...
