Has Yoda turned his back on the galaxy? Why has the legendary Jedi Master abandoned his usual place on Coruscant to settle on a backwater world on the Galactic frontier? What lesson does he hope to teach? And who will come to his aid when disaster strikes?
Comic CrusadersThis issue just crackles with energy, artistry, characterization and intrigue. There is clearly more than meets the eye to the Crulkon and this story is a fun, contained adventure showing how well a book for a character we love can work without making the character feel too familiar to trite. This is Yoda facing a different type of conflict that will use more than brute force to work through.
SciFiPulseCavan Scott writes a solid second issue that builds nicely on the characters and situations that were set up in the opening issue. I really enjoyed seeing that not every member of the Scalvi was enamored with Yoda and his stories. In fact, the conflict between Bree and Trikk makes this a more interesting story. Especially given what we learn by the close of the issue, which we’ll learn more about in next month’s issue.
Graphic PolicyOverall, Star Wars: Yoda #2 is an exciting issue which gives fan more reasons to love Yoda. The story by Scott is cool. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that ratchets up the action.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: An intense and thought provoking story from Cavan Scott. The plot does a great job of expanding on Yoda as a character while also giving him some obstacles that are not easily overcome even with his wisdom and skills. I like the level of vulnerability Yoda is dealing with in the story and look forward to seeing how he deals with the consequences of his intervention. The Art: Leon delivers some vibrant, beautifully detailed visuals throughout the issue. The art perfectly complements the tone of the story and its characters.
The Fandom PostWhile Yoda is a character I like a whole lot for a lot of reasons, stories with him continue to be hard to do effectively because we really only see him when he’s in this older form. And there’s just such a position of stature about him that the reverence by others places him in a particular position because of it. It’s enjoyable to see him on this outer rim world helping out while also occupying himself with new things to him as a challenge, but the story is more about this world itself and what he’s able to help nudge into something more. Scott’s script is solid throughout and even while there’s a lot of familiarity to it to long-time Star Wars readers and science fiction fans themselves, it delivers exactly what it needs to in a good way, especially with solid artwork and fantastic color design.
ComicBook.comit's possible that, while this adventure might not immediately make itself clear as to why it's so fascinating, the ultimate reveals the book is heading towards makes the Yoda we met in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back all the more fascinating and complex, while this book itself also manages to surprise and entertain with each issue.
AIPTStar Wars: Yoda is certainly well drawn and has a story worth telling, but it's telling it too slowly with too little Yoda on the page. There's a lesson between Yoda and the people he's helping, and that's a neat way to show his wisdom and ability to teach, but it's unfortunately a slower boil tale than one might expect with Yoda as the lead character.
SWNN - Star Wars News NetThere isn’t anything in the narrative that suggests everyone outside of the title character should be this obtuse in their understanding of Yoda. Whether Scott has a trick up his sleeve or not with the next issue, no amount of hero work will make this first mini-arc worth revisiting. I’m already counting down the days to issue #4 with Count Dooku.
