    Amanda Deibert opens up this new mini-series with a rather tragic story that really pulls on the heartstrings. Set sometime shortly after the Attack of the Clones movie when Anakin was still pretty raw and quick to act. The comic gives us an early confrontation between Obi-Wan and Grevious, which ends in tragedy. It will be interesting to see if we’ll see Yaru’s daughter in the next two issues given that she proved to be such a pivotal character in this book.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories #1 is a great beginning to this new Dark Horse series. It features a story set in one of the most beloved Star Wars time periods, has some good banter between Obi-Wan and Anakin, and has some great action scenes complete with a surprising ending.

    But Why Tho?

    Overall, Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories #1 has the series off to a great start. I am most intrigued by the secret storyline that will follow throughout the series. Other Star Wars anthologies comics typically give a double feature story like in Star Wars Adventures or give secondary stories while the main stories progress like in Halycon Legacy. Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories #1 sets the stage for something new and exciting in the world of Star Wars comics.

    The Fandom Post

    With all the big ongoing Star Wars stories happening at Marvel and the TV shows on Disney+, there hasn’t been much for the all-ages set for a bit. Hyperspace Stories delivers on that well enough in providing something that definitely feels Star Wars and leans a bit into the Clone Wars look a bit here and giving us a quick hit of some of the characters that time. I’m definitely on board for it because of the various creators that will be stepping in to work on it as that variety is what will be the real draw for me as a good anthology book is what’s needed, especially since it can reach more casual fans and younger readers easily. This is a solid enough start and it has a whole galaxy to explore.

    The fun is just beginning as this series kicks off. Further down the line promises stories and characters from the various eras from all over the Star Wars Galaxy.

    As a geek on a budget I believe that this first issue of Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories is well worth the price of admission. It has a good moral to it and we get a lightsaber battle! What more can a Star Wars fan want?!

    After Padmé is captured by the Separatists, it’s up to Obi-Wan and Anakin to spring into action, encountering an unlikely ally who has also fallen victim to the terrors of General Grievous. The book delivers on the premise of being an all-ages anthology experience, with this issue managing to offer an engaging and entertaining standalone story. Like with many all-ages Star Wars comics, the effectiveness of the experience rests almost entirely on how invested you are in particular characters, so prequel fans will surely enjoy watching what this trio gets up to, though there’s not much of note to highlight that necessarily makes this issue an exceptional read. However, merely not being an arduous experience that keeps us invested from start to finish is still something considered more rewarding than its peers.

    Set The Tape

    Overall, the first issue of this new series felt fairly weak. There was a decent enough idea of a story there, but it wasn’t expanded upon enough. Certain things were left vague, such as the McGuffin, how Anakin found the others after they were kidnapped, and the death of Yarua (it’s set up so you know what happened, but it could easily be missed). Anakin had terrible characterisation, and it was hard to find much about him to like. Whilst these issues may only be here for the one issue, it still felt like a poor beginning for this new series.
