EnsViews Comic Review
Reviewed 12/29/98

Story
This last issue of the on-going series is full of the things that have come to make the series great: air battles, clever dialog, treachery, betrayal, likable characters, joy and sorrow.

The writing for this issue does not take us to a final new high, but it is solid and consistent. The characterization and dialog remain excellent with complex and interweaving plots.

Art
There's no question that the Crespo/Nadeau team is ideal for this title with the strong mix of characters and technology. The ships, taking a more prominent role in this issue, all look great (the Imperial refueling panel was a hilight). The characters too are particularly expressive and alive. Nestelle's usual excellence in beautiful coloring rounds out an overall great performance.

Conclusions
After 35 issues, there are few new words to say about this title. It is and has been the best quality Star Wars comic title produced. One can only hope that more X-Wing adventures are on the horizon and that the titles that will replace this one will live up to its example.

9.5/10. Recommended.
