    Great artwork, fun story and cool aliens. A very entertaining episode - can't wait for the Han Solo mini-movie. I wonder if they will draw the plot from this mini-series. Definitely worthwhile!

    Good Golly Miss Molly, Marvel is shitting the bed with their comics these days! Unfortunately the crap has now spread to its Star Wars line as well. You’d think a Han Solo comic would be a home-run but instead it’s one big yawner with a helluva convoluted plot that’s not worth trying to puzzle out.Like many of the new Marvel Star Wars comics, this one is set between A New Hope and Empire. Leia needs Han to pick up some Rebel informants in a...

    I enjoyed this one, particularly the ending, but I thought it sagged in the middle. I think it would've actually been a better story if it'd been trimmed to four issues, or maybe even three.Maybe I'm not done with Star Wars comics... I dunno...

    Set between New Hope and Empire, Han and Chewie enter an intergalactic race as cover for a Rebel mission to collect some spies. Yes, this has been done before many times (I can remember some Speed Racer episodes with a similar plot), but this is fun and engaging with rare interior art from Mark Brooks. His art is fantastic, especially his alien characters. I especially liked the design for the legendary racer, Loo Re Anno. He also draws dynamic s...

    I enjoyed this compilation of recent comics, maybe a bit more than just 3 stars. It does justice to Han Solo in the period after A New Hope. Does it advance the narrative of the original Episode 4-6 trilogy? Not much. Is the plot substantial? A bit thin.Solo is backing away from the Rebels and trying to get back to smuggling. It isn't working for him and when The Princess reaches out he kind of agrees to help get back some "moles" who were deep i...

    Adoré el tráiler del spin off de Han Solo. Mucho mejor que The Last Jedi😱

    Historia situada entre las películas "Una nueva esperanza" y "El Imperio contraataca", Han Solo es de nuevo un héroe renuente que accede de mala gana a hacerle un 'favor' a Leia realizando una labor por la resistencia en el marco de una famosa carrera espacial; el Dragon Void.O donde no nos queda claro si Han Solo actua encarnando a Penelope o a Pierre o el Palomo: aunque estamos seguros que Chewie seria un buen Patán :PDeseaba que esto me gus...

    This was fantastically fun! Loved the "race in space" angle and the dazzling space-based panel art. If the upcoming Han Solo movie is half this much fun we're in for a treat!

    The art was fantastic and the story was OK. It was good, but not great.One thing I've noticed, Marvel comics have WAY less advertisements than DC, more story, more actual comic book. DC's Rebirth is chopped full of advertising! That's not all that cool...no wonder they're pumping 2 comics per month on one series. They are basically taking one normal sized comic book, splitting it into 2 books, loading up on advertisements and doubling their money...

    A Solo 'solo' adventure set in the aftermath of A New Hope, though of course Chewbacca is by his captain's side throughout the book. This one started favorably enough (the Han / Leia scenes captured that amusing "will they? / won't they?" tension in the early part of their relationship), the artwork was great, and the story - a secret mission conducted using the cover of the Falcon's entry in the 'Dragon Void' spacecraft competition - was initial...

    On the cover, Chewie's bag makes Leia look like a blunt eared elf. Just saying.

    This was like basically Fast in the Furious in space and I was pretty into it. It's prob a 3-star comic but I'm awarding a bonus star for the panel of Leia punching Han in the face.

    Marvel's 2016 run for Star Wars: Han Solo has just been released in trade paperback, so even though I acquired it issue by issue, I'm still reviewing it at around this time, so go figure.Yet another star wars comic in the new canon that takes place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, this comic suffers a similar problem that Jame's Luceno's recent Star Wars novel Catalyst had: it has an extremely strong start, but in the final two iss...

    This is a good 'un.We get a story by Marjorie Liu that has Han take part in an intergalactic race across the universe, threaded into an important mission for the Rebellion involving three informants and a murder plot. There's a lot to grapple in five issues, and Liu manages to make it all feel satisfying as well as getting a good look inside Han's head at the same time; the dilemmas he's grappling with in this story make perfect sense given when ...

    This was significantly better than I'd thought it would be. Not fantastic, sure, and certainly not the best of the new Star Wars comics. But it's a fairly good story, it suits Han, and it's entirely unlike what the other books are doing.

    5 starsNice to see a comic featuring Han. Quite enjoyable. Can't wait to read more Star Wars comics!!!!

    I honestly enjoyed this arc about Han Solo facing his qualms of conscience after ANH, and coming to terms with the kind of person he wants to be. I think it fit pretty perfectly between the films and showed off his scoundrel with a heart of gold side. It's not very deep, but I found it satisfying all the same.

    This is one of the best, if not the best, of the new Star Wars comics. Very compelling story, excellent art, and cool aliens.

    This was everything you would want from a solo (hehehe) Han Solo adventure to be. Set between "A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back" this has Princess Leia sending Han on an adventure that requires him to enter...wait for it...a space race!I hope they at least make a cartoon movie out of this story sometime in the future because this was amazing! Memorable new characters, great action and snappy dialogue: exactly what I look for in a good Han...

    That was a lot of fun to read. I have only recently ventured into the world of Star Wars comics or at least the comics that are part of the canon. Last month I read Shattered Empire found that very enjoyable and the same goes for this Han Solo comic too. It was always good to spend time with Han, Chewie and the Falcon. Also, the writing was fantastic while the art kind of felt like something was lacking. I also love to know more about this Han So...

    Not all of the "We now own Star Wars and Marvel, let make them do things together. You're welcome, love Disney" books have been home runs. Most that I've read have been entertaining, a few have brought me back for more in the series. This is maybe my favorite yet. Han Solo does Han Solo-y things. He pilots the Millennium Falcon, he argues with Leia, he smuggles, he picks fights, you know, Han Solo-y things. Chewbacca is here and holds his own con...

    (2.5) It is fun.... but nothing beyond that. The story follows Han while he secretly does a rebel mission from who else, Leia. Han and Chewy enter the Dragon Void which is some super hard race through space. The art is on par with the rest of new marvel stuff, digital and crisp. The problem i have with the book is it does not to expand on the character of Solo at all. I get the fact marvel probably puts a tight perimeter around what the writers c...

    2.5 stars. Han comes off somewhat better in this story than he has in the other Star Wars comics. The story itself was predictable, and I knew who the mole was immediately.

    Beyond fun. Marvel takes on Han Solo, and gives the most fun tale possible. Great tale.

    I just finished reading Marjorie Liu's Monstress, Volume 1: Awakening. She is definitely a top notch writer. The Star Wars series of comics for Marvel have been quite enjoyable. I was unsure what to expect from a series for Han Solo but I think Liu nailed the character. First I want to point out that I agree with most people that the plot was a bit simple and boring but I feel with that aside this book acts as just a side tale to introduce and we...

    Even though I liked this, it's a relatively simple story that just rehashes what we already know about Han: he likes to think he's this smuggler who doesn't care about anything (or anyone) but as we saw at the end of A New Hope, he really does care and wants to be a part of a bigger family.Basically, Leia sends him on a mission to pick up some spies, under the guise of participating in a race. Han has to choose between the mission, his ego, and p...

    While the story's a bit convoluted and messy (Han gets entered into a dangerous race as part of an undercover Rebel mission), it serves up some intense action and interesting characters. And it's wrapped up in beautifully rendered and colored artwork. There's a surprising amount of introspection as Solo has to balance his personal goals and moral code with the goals of the rebel agents he is interacting with. And at least one of the fellow racers...

    Ouch that was painful.With one of my fav writers and an excellent art time I was hoping they would make good use of one of the most charismatic Star Wars characters. Unfortunately this has nothing going for it and is one of the blandest comics I have read.

    This is right up there with the best of the New Canon graphic novels. Absolutely nails Han Solo. A must read.
