    It's hard to call a first issue perfect but Kieron Gillen comes about as close to the line as you can get.

    If The Screaming Citadel #1 is any indication, this second Star Wars crossover is simply unmissable.

    A terrifically fun first issue that's quintessential Star Wars and unlike anything you've ever seen in the galaxy far, far away.

    It's Marvel Star Wars. That alone is reason enough to check this out and while it's not great for new readers it builds upon the various excellent history that we've had the ability to enjoy over the last year or so. This first issue delivers and has me anxiously awaiting what comes next.

    This issue sets the stage for this series with promises of much to come. Luke and Aphra make a fun team and they're bound to find plenty of trouble. The visuals are top notch, to be sure. I'm looking forward to the next issue.

    Marvel's second Star Wars crossover is shaping up to be stronger than the first. The Screaming Citadel #1 uses both Star Wars and Doctor Aphra as a logical jumping-off point, making the most of this unusual pairing and introducing a compelling new world in the process. Kieron Gillen and Marco Checchetto are the ideal creative team to play in a galaxy far, far away.
