EnsViews Comic Review
Reviewed 11/06/97

Story
The best complement I can pay to this issue is that it's a worthy ending to the first three issues. There aren't many new revelations as the story arc wraps up, but intriguing seeds are planted for the next arcs. The quality of this series has moved X-Wing up from "read it at my convenience" to "read it as soon as I get home".

I didn't care for Stackpole's first X-Wing novel and didn't bother with the rest. I think I'll have to reread it and pick up the rest. I hope DH can hold on to him for future projects.

Art
The art was up to the usual high standards, but not quite as exciting as last issue.

In a couple of panels, I noticed that the ships in space had a lighter black square around them... Man, the effort they go to to reproduce matte lines from the movie! :-)

Why exactly does the head of the Empire have to work on a high platform with no walls? You'd think after the Palpatine incedent that a beurocracy like the Empire would set up regulations on rail height for executive offices.

Summary
Not quite up to issues 2 and 3, but a great story. 10/10... must read.
