The first visit to Crait!

In this one-shot comic book, you get the first visit by the Rebel Alliance to the planet Crait which is a key scenario in the film of Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Las

A pretty average tie-in issue made solely to tie into the planet featured in “The Last Jedi,” “The Storms of Crait” is one of those one-shots that doesn’t do a whole lot that you haven’t already seen before, but also doesn’t do anything so poorly as to make it unreadable. The issue’s biggest hindrance, unfortunately, is the art. I’m not sure why Marvel seems so dead-set on hiring artists that rely on tracing over original penciling, but between Salvador Larrocca on the main “Star Wars” ongoing a ...more

I still haven't seen the Last Jedi (I keep meaning to and I want to see it in the theatre, but I also go see them with my mom so our scheduals have to line up as well as our budget lol), but I do basically know what happens in this movie. So I say this all in preface to my review.

This was a really pointless comic. I mean it was cool to see Scar Squadron, but they were really the only upside to this (there weren't even any crystal foxes!!!) The "background" story behind Crait really could’ve just

It's fun for what it is - a simple one-shot story set between Episode IV and V. Nothing really unpredictable or unique, but fun nonetheless.

Every new film that as been released under Lucasfilm's disney backers has had at least one one-shot comic book as a companion. It appears that The Last Jedi will have an additional one that will be about Benicio Del Toro's DJ. But for now we have "The Storms of Crait".

And just like all the others, it didn't impress me all that much. Between C-3PO: The Phantom Limb, Star Wars: Rogue One - Cassian & K2SO Annual (2017) #1, and this one, my favorite by default would be this one for sure. But I

"You want to come after Wedge Antilles, you better bring a star destroyer!"

This issue has some great moments, and includes a few good scenes with Wedge. We get introduced to a new character and hear a little about Leia's dad, and Leia's relationship with Mon Mothma.

The art was great. I wondered on the first page if I was looking at a screen capture from a movie. The artist had facial expressions down, and did great with both existing and new characters.

Sometimes the art was TOO good. No joke. Th

It didn’t bridge the gap between Leia: Princess of Alderaan and Star Wars: The Last Jedi like I had hoped it would but the art is great and the story’s good if you’ve got a little time to kill and/or desire a quick read.

I found the story didn't actually add a lot of value to the Star Wars mythos. Without going into details, The Last Jedi had led me to believe that Crait was significant during the Rebellion, but this comic kind of derails that. I also found the art style to be a bit jarring. It was almost *too* lifelike, almost like screenshot were taking out of a magazine and taped over the background setting. Not a great story, but I got to enjoy a funny scene with Wedge so there's that.

The artwork was great, it truly captured the likenesses of the actors unlike any Star Wars comic I’ve read before, but on the negative side, it kinda looks like the artist used pictures of the actors and used photoshop to make it look more like a drawn rendering. In terms of the story, I like that it clearly states it takes place directly after A New Hope, but this comic was pretty much made to explain the planet Crait, as it was shown in The Last Jedi, but the planet wasn’t used as a rebel base ...more
Not what I expected AT ALL. Cover art is beautiful, and, yeah, inside usually differs. However, it really seemed like the artists took screen captures of the actors and drew over them. That might have been cool, but Han has tons of derp faces, almost to the point he's being trolled (like a party game, haha, how stupid can we might him look in this scene??) Chewie also looked like an ape.

The hype and build-up implied that Crait was super important to the rebellion. What, cause they spent a failed

This is beautifully drawn and coloured. Give Mike Mayhew a big pay raise. I thought this was a decent way to tie the Star Wars comics to the movie franchise. Did it need to exist? Not terribly. It was fun to watch characters like Wedge, or see Han and Leia butt heads. It was even nice to see Luke be whiny. Something kept this story, though, from standing out as a one-shot I'll cherish long after. I think, again, that it was the attempt to tie the comics to the movie that faltered from being perf ...more

Don't listen to the haters this comic was amazing!

The only REAL reason I gave it a 4 stars outta 5 though is because it is waaaaaaayyyyy too short. And the art for luke is seriously weird like...that ain't Mark hamil. If your a star wars fanatic and want to read a short quick read of the planet of crait then buy this. If not save your money cause i can see for some people it's a waste of time.

I liked it though .

Nice to revisit Crait, after "Leia: Princess of Alderaan" and "The Last Jedi".

I was a bit surprised that Leia kept calling Mon Mothma by her full name. I was under the impression that she had called her "Mon" in other publications. Also, I thought that the banter between the trio of Leia/Luke/Han was a bit superficial and could have benefited from some polishing: otherwise it feels like it was written by an inexperienced writer who stays on the surface of things.

Story-wise, this is an acceptable addition to the Star Wars canon, and basically answers the question of how Leia knew there'd be a place to hide on Crait, as well as explores the thought-process used by the Rebels in the search for a new base after the battle of Yavin. The artwork is incredible, as well. A fun read, but not required-reading.

Three and a half stars. The story was good as an explanation for why the Rebels couldn’t use Crait as a base against the Empire, and I loved seeing Scar Squadron, but the comic has poor art (Han looked like Kurt Russel) and Luke was totally mischaracterized. He would never ‘resent’ Leia because he had to do more menial work. All Luke did was complain and it felt totally wrong.

Fun little story about the rebels visiting Crait in the search for a new base after fleeing from Yavin 4. Nothing special and not really a tie-in to The Last Jedi, except for being on the saltplanet. But: Did Solo make a joke about Jabba's wife or will this be a future story to be told??

This comic was pretty awesome. The artwork was great, even if Han looked like a Harrison Ford-Kurt Russel crossover at times. The story was great and ties events from Leia: Princess of Alderaan and The Last Jedi and tied it all together wonderfully. I am eating this up like candy. nom nom nom

Nice backstory to Crait!

This one-off book shows us Luke, Leia, Han and Chewie investigating Crait (seen recently in The Last Jedi) as a prospective Rebel base. There's adventure battle and double-dealing along the way. Good story, great artwork; very enjoyable.

A good one-shot story linking to the events in Leia: Princess of Alderaan and The Last Jedi. Some nice character moments with the classic trio.

I loved Wedge's small part in this. I enjoyed the comic overall, especially since I'm not currently keeping up with any Star Wars comics, but overall it felt like an unnecessary aside.

Spíše průměrný one-shot, který prostřednictvím planety Crait propojuje klasické období s filmem Poslední z Jediů. Neurazí ani nenadchne.

Loosely tied to the Last Jedi, but there were a few character moments that seemed ok. Pretty good overall.

This short yet nice read was a glimpse of Luke, Leia, and Han seeking refuge for the rebellion. There’s nothing much else to say other than it was a concise display of the trio’s personalities.
