Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Rogue One #6

This review of Star Wars: Rogue One #6 contains minor spoilers.

It was no secret how Rogue One was going to end.

We all saw it coming.

Yet that did little to stop the team behind the six-issue film adaptation from adding one last, lofty and piercing surprise to throw us for a loop. All it took was a series of words that for some Star Wars fans, were the first they ever read.

Rogue One ended as it began with rich detail, added material and luxurious storytelling in words and images.

Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Rogue One #5

This review of Star Wars: Rogue One #5 contains minor spoilers.

Marvel stumbled with its comic-book adaptation of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2016.

With it’s six-issue Rogue One: A Star Wars Story adaptation, the publisher has done more than regained its footing, it’s poised to lap the competition.

The fifth, and penultimate issue of the mini series, released Aug. 2, continues what has been a stellar retelling of the cinematic hit, while offering modest bits of material not seen in the film.

That’s not surprising, given editor Heather Antos has referred to it, and rightly so, as a director’s cut. The film’s director, Gareth Edwards, was consulted ahead of the series’ publication.
