    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 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...

    This is probably the best trade paperback in the current main Star Wars series by Marvel. Plus, the connection to the events and the characters both in the Darth Vader series and the Rogue One film make it a fanboys dream read. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    The main Star Wars comicseries lost it's shine somewhere after Vader Down. But with Aaron out and Gillen in the writers seat it feels fresh again. A nice addon to the Star Wars story with a lot of nice nods to Rogue One. Now get those Rebel asses to Hoth! ...

    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,...

    A strong start to Gillen?s run overall, though I felt like it took an issue or two to really get going. ...

    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 ...

    In an effort to stronger link the original trilogy to the newer stuff, we have our heroes heading back to Jedha, from the Rogue One movie, in search of kyber crystals left over from the construction of the Death Star. Leia, Luke, and Han arrive on Jedha, first encountering Benthic, wh...

    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. ...

    This was a really cool story which ties back to Rogue One. In general the art was good but the strange, realistic renderings of character's faces is distracting. ...

    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...

    Gillen takes the reins just in time. Aaron had a great run but his last two volumes were pretty weak. this ties in the world of Rogue one very well and brings all the characters up to their former glory. keep it up! ...

    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...

    Dunno why but I wasn't feeling this ... Maybe it's because the last comic before this one I read so long ago....But I just couldnt get as exciting for this one. It was confusing , the storyline was ok but never tied together like the others and to be honest? I got kinda bored. ...

    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. ...

    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...

    Rogue One carries on The story is a solid continuation of Rogue One. However, Laroca?s use of photo references can lead to some very jarring illustrations. There?s a picture of Han in issue 5 that is so bad it rips you right out of the story. ...

    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...
