      The new Canonic Star Wars comics keep truly great!I got this storyarc on its single comic book issues but I chose to make the review using this TPB edition to make a better overall review. The story is set after the events of “Star Wars IV: A New Hope” but before the events of “Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back”. This TPB edition contains the issues #7-12 from the title of “Star Wars” in its new Marvel Canonic run.Creative Team:Writer: Jason AaronIllustrators: Simone Bianchi & [...]

      Remember this exchange from the original Star Wars?Han: Let him have it. It’s not wise to upset a Wookiee.C-3PO: But sir. Nobody worries about upsetting a droid.Han: That’s ‘cause a droid don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.C-3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2. Let the Wookiee win.It turns out that Han was absolutely right because there’s several scenes in this collection that make it very clear that Chewba [...]

      I'm impressed! That wasn't just a bit of pandering to the nostalgia. There was an actual creative story in there! Wow! It makes me believe there's still someone alive out there who's making good Star Wars stuff! Yay!(Yes, I am going to go watch the new Star Wars movie this weekend. Am I preparing to adjust my expectations after watching Eps 1-6 recently? Yeah. Am I still a geekboy enraptured in his geekdom? Yeah. Yeah, I am.)Seriously. This story was pretty damn cool and I want to continue readi [...]

      Like the first volume, Star Wars :Showdown on the Smuggler’s Moon is also an action-packed, epic space adventure propelled by energy and enthusiasm. That’s fine with me!There is also a tale from Obi-Wan's past.Hell yeah!

    5. Sam Quixote on said:

      Set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, the second volume of Jason Aaron’s Star Wars run sees the core group fractured. Luke has picked up Obi-Wan’s journal from Tatooine and is trying to reach the Jedi Temple on Coruscant at the heart of the Empire - a journey that only the most daring smugglers of Nar Shaddaa can help him with. Meanwhile, Han and Leia bump into a bounty hunter intent on turning them over to the Empire. Oh and she claims to be Han’s wife too! I liked the first [...]

    6. Gianfranco Mancini on said:

      I really hated for good the Han's wife sub-plot, storyline was just as not good as first volume, but Bianchi/Immonen's artworks were just over the top here.And the arena lightsaber-battle-royale fight scene was a real blast.

    7. Paul on said:

      While there's still a lot to love about this second volume of Marvel's new Star Wars comic (Dengar's in it; what more could you want?) I have to completely honest and say I didn't enjoy it as much as the first volume.I'm not quite sure why Maybe it had something to do with the whole newspaper-headline-grabbing 'Han Solo's wife' business coming to such an unsatisfying conclusion Maybe it just bothers me that some of the story elements are trying to be bigger and better than the story elements fro [...]

    8. Sesana on said:

      Jason Aaron knows what he's doing here. I loved the first volume of his Star Wars, and while this one isn't quite as amazing, it's still really, really good. It still has the same sense of adventure that I hope for from anything related to Star Wars. Luke actually gets to be really cool, even if he's also as naive as I'd expect him to be. Sana is a great new character, though I doubt we'll ever see her again. She's fun, and it's great to see somebody consistently get the better of Han, at least [...]

    9. Anthony on said:

      This Star Wars book is so fun and Immonen is so under appreciated as an artist. He gets the character faces and body language perfectly and his big wide shots like space scenes and planet establishing shots look great. I saw a tweet saying this is going to be the thing that will make Luke Skywalker cool - I'm leaning towards agreeing with that opinion.

    10. Scott (GrilledCheeseSamurai) on said:

      It's new Star Wars - and it's awesome.Seriously. I don't know what else to say without spoiling it. We are still between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back. The characters are spot on - and the art is easy on the eyes.It's freaking Star Wars. Just read it.

    11. Allie on said:

      Awwwwwesome. Pure awesomeness. My favorite Star Wars comic so far. I loved seeing Obi-Wan again, and the circumstances surrounding him. I loved meeting Grakkus the Hutt, who is a buffer version of Jabba and walks around on many robotic legs. Yep, it's cool. I loved the art. I loved the story. I cannot wait for more!Ps: Am I the only one who thinks that the cover of Luke looks like Ricky Schroder?#iamsuchasuckerforstarwars

    12. Roxanne on said:

      This is a lot of fun to read and i just love han shouting 'she's not my wife' like 50 times his character is spot on!The artwork is amazing and everything is just on point, definitely worth picking up if you like star wars!

    13. Bhanuj on said:

      There will be “blood and lightsabers“. If you are planning to read this volume, be advised to fasten your seat belts, as this epic adventure in a galaxy far far away will keep you on the edge of your seat through and through.This volume collects issues #7-12.Luke Skywalker struggles as he has no one to guide him through his jedi training. The uncertainties brings him to tatootine where he finds Ben Kenobi’s journal. The journal (issue #7) tells Luke of the vacillations and struggles of a m [...]

    14. Lata on said:

      Marginally better than volume 1, though Luke is still really dumb, and Han spends all his time whining. Leia gets to be tough, a little, while Artoo and Chewie actually get to save people. And Sana I liked, but will we see her again? There's actually an interesting Hutt here, who's not the same as evil bikini Jabba. I liked his prosthetics.

    15. Matthew on said:

      To check out all my reviews: dancinginth3darkDisclaimer: I read the individual comics.When I first read the Star Wars comics I was excited because it was the first time that I invested my time towards a particular franchise now that we have the new canon and for the most part it was a great series. I would say awesome but after reading this volume it raised the stakes higher and I believe it was the perfect set up for Vader Down crossover that I couldn't believe this was epic compare to Vader. E [...]

    16. Frédéric on said:

      A typical plot totally enhanced by awesome art.If you ever wondered what Ben Kenobi had been doing on Tatooine for years the answer is here and rather disappointing. Nothing. Logical if you consider he's been doing his best to stay under the Empire's radar but not very thrilling. He apparently used his spare time to write some memories in which Luke hopes to find useful advice in his quest to become a Jedi. Good luck with that! This first issue is illustrated by Simone Bianchi, good but not at h [...]

      4.5 starsAnother great Star Wars volume! I didn't like it quite as much as the first, but still enjoyed it. As in the first volume, there were several cool moments. Dengar Vs. Chewbacca and Han, Leia and Chewbacca all using lightsabers were memorable moments. Also a story showing some of Kenobi's early days on Tatooine. The series is still filling in the space between New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, and still very cool.I don't have anything against the expanded universe, but it just can't comp [...]

    18. Jordan Lahn on said:

      Marvel's Star Wars comic continues to be a fun romp. Interesting to see stuff pop up that threatens to contradict the newly established canon, only to reinforce it instead (eg. the fate of the Jedi Temple).

    19. Ivy on said:

      5 starsNice to see Luke, Leia, and Han again. Also nice to see Chewbacca and the others. Good to know that Han isn't married. Glad that Luke was okay. Obi-Wan's tale was cool. There's always light in the darkness.Can't wait to read Star Wars: Rebel Jail!!!!

    20. James Beach on said:

      Seriously, first the EU was better than the actual movies and now the canon "other stuff" is better.

    21. Ross Alon on said:

      I don't know if it adds anything to the Star Wars mythology. But it is a nice sold action story.Nice art, nice story telling

    22. Donovan on said:

      A really great follow up. We (who haven't read any of the novels) finally learn what Obi Wan did on Tatooine. (Seriously, why doesn't he have a standalone title?) R2D2 and Luke meanwhile are going to Nar Shaddaa, the Smuggler's Moon, to learn the whereabouts of the Jedi Temple for knowledge on becoming a Jedi. Han and Leia are hiding out from the Empire when Sana Solo barges in. And Chewbacca and C3P0 have been separated from the rest and work their way back to Han and Leia. A typical but exciti [...]

    23. Matthew Quann on said:

      Now that the smoke has settled on The Force Awakens, I'm pleased to say that Marvel's handling of the Star Wars universe and characters continues to be excellent.Where both Star Wars and Darth Vader's first volumes began and ended together, these second volumes opt to diverge from each other to allow their cast to embark on their own adventures. There's a lot to love here: lightsaber duels, dogfights, and peculiar aliens. While John Cassaday is no longer on art duties, Stuart Immonen's artwork i [...]

      Read this review and more on my blog.Volume 2 collects issues #7 - #12 of Star Wars. Click here for my review of the first volume: Skywalker Strikes.Volume 2 keeps a very nice pacing throughout. The first issue may be the only exception, with it being in a form of an Obi-Wan Kenobi flashback (which did feel out of place until the reason as to why it occurred at the end of the issue became apparent).The art style was very similar to that of the first volume, but (in my opinion) it seemed to inclu [...]

    25. Paul Decker on said:

      This is the second volume in the ongoing Star Wars series from Marvel. The first issue collected in this volume is a tale from Obi-wan's journal. I love seeing what Kenobi was up to on Tatooine between Episode 3 and 4. The characters are written very well in this series. The banter between Han and Leia is on point. I also like seeing the naive Luke from A New Hope. One great thing about the new Marvel comics is how all things canon are referenced. Luke fights Magnaguards! The imagery blending th [...]

    26. Alex Sarll on said:

      Compared to Vader Down or the first volume, this is much more like it. No longer treading on the films' toes so much, instead we get a flashback to Obi-Wan in hiding on Tatooine, trying (and failing, obviously) not to get involved; Luke trying to track down the Jedi legacy; Han meeting an unwelcome face from his past. And there's a big galaxy full of Imperials and crooks to menace them all, without having to use the original trilogy's antagonists to exhaustion. One could potentially object that [...]

    27. Travis Duke on said:

      Jason Aaron is living up to his credentials. He is balancing nostalgia, action, and humor very well. In this volume Luke is tracking down the old Jedi temple on Nar Shaddaa after he reads Obi-Wan's journal. Luke gets more than he bargains for by meeting Grakuss in his pursuit. Han is caught in a love triangle with Leia and Sana which is really amusing. Meanwhile we get to see Chewy kick some major ass while he is looking for Luke. I really like Stuart Immonen's Art, been a fan since seeing him i [...]

    28. Dimitris on said:

      **Reviewed this thinking it was Vader's Vol.2, so no 2 stars for this one but for Vader**So here it goes for the ACTUAL Star Wars ongoing title:Great. Great. Great. Fun. Fun. Fun.You should be reading this. If not the best Star Wars title that is running currently, then one of the best for sure. Actually no, it is the best. Because I have no problem with anything that is happening whatsoever. It's just really good.You like Star Wars? Read it.

    29. Brandon Forsyth on said:

      A very near-disaster. The first volume of this series built up such a delightful premise (what if we got back to sassy heroes fighting desperate odds), and then this collection repeats nearly all of the mistakes of the first volume (hey kids, it's Dengar!!! *crickets*) while separating all the heroes and keeping the quips to a minimum. I want my Star Wars comics breezy and fun, not tired retreads of the arena scene from Episode II! Also I loathed the art in the Obi-Wan prelude.
