Praise for Star Wars:
“Star Wars” #2 is the issue where Brian Wood and Carlos D’anda demonstrate they don’t just know how to handle these characters, they know how to take them new places…This book has character moments as often as it has intricate interplay with the established universe. There are plenty of reasons to stick with this book whether you’re a longtime or casual fan. Everyone is welcome.” – Comic Book Resources <http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=user_review&id=5672>
“In a time where there much fanfare surrounding the a new trilogy of Star Wars films, Dark Horse has seemingly captured magic in a bottle. This is series is about as close to quality of the original trilogy that Dark Horse has ever delivered and fans of the franchise would be crazy not to be reading this.” – Read Comic Books <http://readcomicbooks.net/home/star-wars-3/>
“Han Solo and Chewbacca also make an appearance, and that’s where artist Carlos D’Anda shines. His framing of their short but brief chase scene was done with an excellent sense of speed and scope to give it that huge cinematic feel…The Force is strong with this one.” -IGN <http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/02/14/star-wars-2-review>
