SciFiPulse"The Screaming Citadel" shows the Star Wars characters at their finest. Watching Luke use the Force and run from villains was enough to win me over, but having Han and Leia in the mix only increases the joy. An incredibly enjoyable Star Wars outing. Recommended.
AIPTWith an extremely unique setting for the Star Wars universe and implications that could change how we view it forever, "The Screaming Citadel" is a must for any Star Wars fan's pull list.
ComicosityStar Wars #31 is a strong second chapter in this Screaming Citadel crossover. The team working on this mini-event has my attention and it is obvious they are having some fun with this one. The Star Wars spirit is alive and well in this story and I'm excited to see where they are taking it.
Black Nerd ProblemsThe book is on steadier ground this week than in the previous story arc. Aaron is giving us more of the swashbuckling, betrayal and intrigue we like in a Star Wars book. It's also still fairly accessible even if you haven't read the previous book (hard to come by with crossovers".even the good ones). Solid issue.
Bleeding CoolStar Wars #31and its series are easily recommendable. Its been consistently great since the beginning, and shows no sign of stopping here. Despite the pacing problems in this particular issue, this book remains one of Marvels best.
Multiversity ComicsAn interesting ensemble piece that brings together the clashing personalities of the casts from both "Star Wars" and "Doctor Aphra" very well without showing too much preference toward either side.
The Fandom PostWhile there are some great details to be had in the architecture here and the overall movement of the story, something about this issue just didn't feel compelling. There are fun moments with Luke and Aphra and I even liked the somewhat overplayed piece between Han and Sana that reinforces their problematic working relationship. I'm still hopeful for this event to do some fun things in the next three installments of it as it can go nuts pretty quickly. It's a visual treat to be sure and just the interplay with the characters clicks well, especially if the murderbots get more play in the remaining installments.
IGNVisually, this issue is a severe step down from its predecessor. Salvador Larroca's art is even more frustrating than it was on the recent Yoda flashback storyline.
