The Ashes of Jedha (Star Wars (2015) #7) Reviews
A strong start to Gillen’s run overall, though I felt like it took an issue or two to really get going.
Well-planned, with good moments. Gillen takes the main Star Wars title and hits the ground running, folding in Rogue One elements and even bringing along some characters from his Darth Vader run.
Gillen takes the reins just in time. Aaron had a great run but his last two volumes were pretty weak. this ties in the world of Rogue one very well and brings all the characters up to their former glory. keep it up!
On certain subjects and fields so many tons of ink have been written that the mere pretension of adding something new appears as smug or illusory as, in the end, merely useless. Hence, almost unconsciously, we put ourselves on guard against an author who dares to publish a new essay on the world of these last three quarters of a century, the span that separates us from the last great war hecatomb.
Character's faces in this book have a strange finish applied which throws them into the uncanny valley. I think the artist was going for a photorealistic look (i.e. Alex Ross or Greg Land), but they failed miserably.
This was a really cool story which ties back to Rogue One. In general the art was good but the strange, realistic renderings of character's faces is distracting.
