Warning: this review contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
The biggest drawback with the current crop of Star Wars novels and comics, compared to the Expanded Universe days, is that these stories have far less freedom in which to operate. The days where where you could resurrect Emperor Palpatine in a comic or kill off Chewbacca in a novel are well behind us. That’s the trade-off to having a new, Disney-sanctioned universe where every new story has its carefully chosen place in the larger scheme of things. Nowhere has this problem been felt more than with Marvel’s meager offering of comics set in the post-Return of the Jedi era. It too often feels like creators are being constrained by Lucasfilm and prevented from venturing away from a very narrow path. Star Wars: The Last Jedi – DJ – Most Wanted #1 is no exception, sadly.
