    This was a solid issue that does a solid job of giving us more story about the Kezarat Fuel Tankers and what happened to them. I really liked the wall art telling the story of how a Jedi helped the Kezarat in their fight against the Nihil. And I also enjoyed Luke’s response to Blythe’s young son.

    The Story: An entertaining story with some great character development and a nice connection to the High Republic era. I continue to enjoy how Soule and others are connecting the worlds and history of the Star Wars universe and this story has great introspective moments for each character. I like the tension in the story as well and look forward to seeing what happens next.

    The Art: Genolet delivers some great art in the issue. The visuals are fun and thrilling with some great visual moments of tension.

    Star Wars #31 lets you accompany Luke, Leia, Lando, Chewie, Lobot, and their friend Amilyn Holdo as they meet their Kezarat rescuers and learn the dilemmas they face. Poor in rapid-fire action, this slow-paced story is rich in world-building and character development. There’s an undeniable appeal to a series about people who genuinely care about each other, want to see the best in themselves and others, and work together to achieve a common goal. Charles Soule’s Star Wars series has quickly become one of my favorites. Perhaps it could become one of yours as well?

    The fact that this arc probably does not have a huge impact on the overall saga is completely forgivable considering how unique it is. This will certainly have a very interesting conclusion.

    I’m not particularly enthused about this arc because everything is so clear as to what will happen that it’s hard to engage with. You can see the path pretty clearly and enjoy all the little bits with it, which I am such as with the Nihil element. But the general premise just isn’t interesting. The main draw for me at this point is just having more story time with Holdo and the way she operates with Leia and the others as it’s a lot of fun. Especially what we get with Lando here. The book reads well enough and there’s some good detail in there for how the colony comes together to make it engaging for those that want to dig in more. And, as usual, the artwork looks good and captures the look pretty well – though those droids just bother me with how they look.

    This was a surprisingly strong issue of the main Star Wars comic run. We needed a lot of answers and we got them, but I was surprised at how engaged I was with the story. The arc needed a proper breather, and I feel like we got that here. Hopefully the pacing will ramp up again in the next issue though to keep this arc entertaining.

    The book succeeds at keeping our attention, even if we aren’t treated to anything particularly compelling, though by merely keeping the momentum of the mysterious arc moving forward, it can be considered a relative success.
