    A basic adaptation. Never really read an adaptation before. This was fine for What it was. Nothing too spectacular

    It’s very rushed and while it does add a few minor scenes, they ultimately add nothing to the story.

    While no where near as good as the novelization (which is honestly the best novelization I've ever read) this was still good. It was nice to go back and be with the crew of Rogue One again even if it was just at surface value. I miss them :(

    Good companion to the movie. If you like Rogue One like me. Nice artwork. Some small dialogues not in the movie, including with Admiral Raddus (may he rest in peace), Jyn and Chirrut, and Kaytoo and Bodhi. Also, this version has a cool bonus: the story of how Cassian met Kaytoo for the first time.

    Just an exact telling of the film plus a bonus story at the end which is about the capturing of Kaytoo the security droid, which was interesting to read.

I was blown away Alexander Freed's novelization, so when I heard the comic added a bunch of extra scenes, I couldn't wait to see what happened. While it certainly is nowhere near as good as the novelization, this comic delivered. THE MOVIE: Normally I would give a quick synopsis of the story, but because this is an adaption of another story, I take this time to talk about the source material: the 2016 movie directed by Gareth Edwards. I'm not that big fan of the film. Yes, that Darth Vader scene was awesome. Yes, the third act was spectacular. But most of the rest left much to be desired. And in terms of the new movies, I found The Last Jedi and even The Force Awakens to be far better. I'll start with the good real quick. I like the story alot. It's a compelling prequel on how the rebels got the death star plans. Through that we get to see lots of different points of view in the galaxy, particularly the idea that not everybody in the rebellion was what you would call a good person. Some people connected with the characters and really loved them, others found them completely flat and bland. I'm somewhere in between. On the one hand, the movie's portrayal of Jyn was a bit weak. To this day, I'm left completely unconvinced that Jyn would so quickly be willing to lead the team to scariff after the rebels killed her father. Yes, K2SO and Chirrut Imwe were fun, but they didn't leave much of an impact beyond that. I didn't get very emotional for any of the main cast when they were killed off. On the other hand, Cassian Andor is seriously underrated. He was by far the best written character and Diego Luna gave the best performance in the film. Now for the problems: yes, I think the bor gullet scene is stupid too. Yes, the cameos from R2 and 3PO as well as Pondo Baba and Dr. Evazaan were forced. But lets get to my other problems. First, Forrest Whitaker's performance was pretty goofy. He's a great actor (as proven by Denis Villeneuve's "Arrival") and he can be fantastic in the role (Rebels proved that), but with this movie, something didn't translate well, and when he was trying to be intimidating, I just sort of cringed. But the biggest problem? Director Krennic. Ben Mendelson did the best he could with the role, but the character himself was without a doubt the lamest villain from any Star Wars movie. At least Ziro the Hutt nearly doomed the republic's war effort in the god awful clone wars movie. Heck, even General Grievous killed a jedi master in a deleted scene. Krennic was just there to be pushed around by Tarkin (who shouldn't have been in the movie), and Vader. He wasn't even able to kill Cassian Andor! THE BAD: Ok, enough bitching and moaning about the flaws of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story? What flaws does the comic have? Honestly, not very many. I can say everything feels rushed, but that's just because the comic cuts out a lot from several scenes, namely the opening with Jyn as a little girl, as well as spending alot less time on the battle of scariff itself. But this can be forgiven because this is a comic, and its constrained by its length. I personally give it a pass because cutting the content we have seen already allows the comic to focus on the new little moments and scenes that it adds in. Even if it doesn't improve the story or characters for some readers, it's still something new that gives those who have scene the movie multiple times a reason to read this comic. I wish the comic gave us some more with Director Krennic. The book was able to make Krennic better by focusing on the political side of the character, not even trying to give him a villainous presence. The book just takes what the film had and put it in here, adding nothing. The last big problem I have is that the last issue doesn't add any new scenes. All the other issues had so many juicy little bits that greatly enriches the story that film tries to tell, but the last issue is just a quick summary of the last 20 or so minutes in the movie. My final little nitpick is that the drawings of the faces sometimes don't look very good. THE GOOD: This was a satisfying adaptation that captured the core of the story, was a well made comic on its own, and added something new to the story. I'll start with the extra scenes, because that's what most readers will pick this up for. And this comic certainly delivers. The character of Saw Guerrera is so well done here, with extra moments that enrich not just his relationship with Jyn, but him as a character on his own. In the film, he felt like just another dead father figure/mentor, just going along with Qui Gonn, Obi Wan, Yoda, Galen Erso, and now Han Solo and Luke Skywalker as just another redone trope. But in this comic, I actually felt for him because of how tastefully his death was handled. Canon junkies are really going to love the clone wars connection it makes too. Bodhi is given more background on why he's defecting, and the Bor Gullet scene is actually pretty terrifying. It also provides more flashes of backstory. And in the other beats from the film extra scenes are inserted that actually develops his character in a charming and endearing way, much like Alexander Freed's novel did. Baze and Chirrut have a couple of great extra moments, that enhance both characters greatly. Jyn was also well done, and they added an extra scene that nicely smoothed out Jyn's transition from being bitter toward the rebels to leading them to scarif. It also enhances the dialogue she had with Cassian right before. Now lets get too the rest of what works. Afterall, this is still a comic, and extra scenes alone do not make it good. The artwork is excellent. The action is not as good as it is in the movie, but as comic book action on its own, it's still fast paced and great to look at. But what really stands out is the placement of panels: it brilliantly integrates extra little visuals that greatly enhance quite a few of the boring expository scenes that the movie was filled with in the first two acts. The writing is also very good, in that it keeps everything moving at a fast and exciting pace. Most of the funny lines were kept in, but we got some new lines that were profound. I also respect the decision to get through some of the more familiar scenes quickly, particularly the ones that added little to the story: I'm looking at you, opening with Jyn as a little girl. THE CONCLUSION: Final rating is 4 stars. The stuff hat was actually from the movie feels rushed at times, but it is made up for by being crammed with so many extra scenes that are highly effective and inserted in exactly the right places. This comic deserves respect for the effort that it made to stand on its own while also adapting the film as faithfully as it could, much like the novelization. No matter how many times you have watched Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, both the novel and the comic are great reads that work wonders in adding to the story as part of Star Wars lore.

    The *character* of Rogue One is lost in this but I enjoyed Cassian and K2’s story at the end.

    Schon das Cover der Rogue Oen Graphic Novek sieht sehr stark nach Adaption aus, da die Charaktere so herrlich nah an die Schauspieler gezeichnet wurden. Genau das habe ich eigentlich auch erwartet, als ich mit Rogue One begonnen habe: Eine klassische Adaption, die das Filmgeschehen in Comicform wiedergibt. Das passiert auch. Mehr oder weniger. Wir erfahren beim Lesen den gesamten Film in genau der gleichen Zeitspanne, wie es auch dort der Fall war. Allerdings doppelt sich nichts.

Wir erfahren beim Lesen den gesamten Film in genau der gleichen Zeitspanne, wie es auch dort der Fall war. Allerdings doppelt sich nichts. Das geschehen wurde aus völlig unterschiedlichen Perspektiven erzählt. So hat man - wenn man den Film kennt - zwar immer eine sehr gute Orientierung, wo man sich gerade befindet, man erfährt aber an allen Ecken neues über die Handlung in Rogue One und so gab mir der Comic einen enormen Mehrwert. Mit dem Zeichenstil habe ich mich auch enorm wohl gefühlt. Wie oben schon erwähnt, waren die Figuren sehr nah am Aussehen der Schauspieler im Film, was ich hier sehr toll fand, da der Comic ja eine nachtrglich adaptierte Fassung war. Aber auch abgesehen davon fand ich die Zeichnungen und die Anordnung der Panels wahnsinnig angenehm aber auch experimentierfreudig. Zusammenfassen kann man außerdem, dass enorm viele Emotionen in den Zeichnungen stecken und diese sehr viel transportieren. Wenn ihr Star Wars Fans seid, solltet ihr euch den Comic also nicht entgehen lassen.  Die Graphic Novel Adaption zu Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ist für alle Star Wars Fans ein echtes Muss. Nicht nur die Zeichnungen sind wunderschön, ausdrucksstark und sehr nah am Film, die Geschichte überzeugt darüber hinaus mit vielen neuen Details und Blickwinkel, die man im Film nicht bekommt.

    This is an excellent adaptation of the Disney prequel film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The art is quite good in most respects, and although there isn't a lot of extra material (not seen in the theatrical version), I really do not understand why that might be a prerequisite (or even a minor consideration) for anyone in assessing this book in a mostly positive light. I mean, come on! It is what it is.

I mean, come on! It is what it is. It's a classic style comic book adaptation of a blockbuster science fiction-fantasy adventure film - one of my personal favorites in the Star Wars canon - and not a dramatic attempt at the reinvention of the wheel itself! And what, pray tell, could possibly be wrong with that? Again, the art by Emilio Laiso, Oscar Bazuldua, Paolo Villanelli, and Fernando Blanco is quite well done. The likenesses of most of the major characters are spot on in most panels, and the covers of all six collected issues are nothing short of stunning. Further, writer Jody Houser is obviously smart enough do what any good adaptive author does, and just plain stays faithful to the source material. So what's not to like? Therefore, I really cannot say that I understand why anyone who claims to be a fan of the Star Wars saga would not absolutely love this book to pieces. So I will simply have to end this missive by firmly challenging anyone who thinks they could have done a better job than this (obviously better than average Marvel Comics effort) to simply stop writing off the cuff, nit-picky little reviews on social media, and get down to the business of actually doing it all better themselves.

    I'm pretty sure this comic will make zero sense to anyone who hasn't seen the Rogue One film. For those familiar with the movie, the adaptation is a sort of fun way to revisit some of the story's iconic moments. And a few new panels and added dialogue give the characters some more texture and backstory. If you take a step back, though, and look at the book as a whole, it just rushes through the narrative and skips some essential elements. The result is a confusing and rushed mess.

    Considering I saw the movie several times and read the novelization (NERD ALERT), I fully expected to skim through the graphic novel adaptation with minimal interest. AND YET, I was perhaps more drawn in to this version of the Rogue One story than either of the previous iterations. The art is fantastic, the storytelling is smooth, and you truly understand character motivations, something that was a little lacking in the movie.

    Cette adaptation est plus réussie que celle faite pour The Force Awakens. Les flashbacks sont intéressants et l’histoire est bien condensée. Il y a une plus grande liberté dans la narration que dans l’adaptation précédente. Les dessins sont jolis dynamiques, par contre les visages de Krennic et de Tarkin ne ressemblent pas du tout.

    For the most part a fairly straight retelling of the film. I say "for the most part" because there are some deviations from the telling if not the story; moments implied on screen are shown here, and visa versa. The changes intelligently translate the movie to comic book but the result isn't really anything other than another way to experience the same story: none of the additions are remarkable or revelatory.

    As other readers noted, this quick adaptation of Rogue One wasn't as good as the other novelization, but was still enjoyable. The small added scenes were a nice touch, and seeing how Cassian and K2-SO met was good.

    Maybe if I hadn't already seen the movie, I might have liked this more, but I doubt it. I would have never bothered if it didn't come in my monthly Comic Bento box. Poorly paced book that wouldn't have been a good substitute for seeing the movie it was based on no matter how you look at it.

    This is the best Star Wars graphic novel adaptation that I have read. It did have the advantage of being read right after I watched the film, but it was spot on and it even included some panels with backstory that is highlighted in supplemental books like Rebel Rising and Catalyst.

    I love this movie, so it’s not hard to imagine that I found the comic adaptation enjoyable. There really wasn’t much more to be had story wise, although the brief moments featured in the comic that didn’t make it into the film would’ve been great to see.

When her mission turns into getting the plans for the Rebellion, Jyn and Cassian team up to take the first step in bringing the Empire down.  The neat thing about this adaptation is that it comes with "Cassian & K-2SO" Special #1, the story of how Cassian meets his soon to be droid friend while on a mission with two other Rebels. Aiming to reprogram an Imperial droid proves to be a challenge, but well worth it when a new friend is gained from the hardship of the mission. Being an adaptation, there are a few things that need to be moved around ever so slightly to maintain the flow of the graphic novel. While the art is once again beautiful, thanks to the awesome teams Marvel has for its new line of Star Wars comics, it does not have quite the same feeling as a visual space battle with the sound effects that come with shooting and blowing things up. The Vader scene at the end was still beautiful, but not as heart-pounding as its visual counterpart. Overall, a great adaptation to review the story swiftly if one does not want to take the time to watch the whole movie again (but who wouldn't?).

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I really enjoyed this. I don't really have high expectations of comic adaptations because they have to squeeze two hours of material into at least six issues, which means cutting corners, but luckily this adaptation adds more to the story. You see things such as Galen and Bodhi's planning at Eadu, more of Jyn's imprisonment in the Wobani labor camp, Stormtroopers raiding the Kyber Temple, Jyn's time with Saw Gerrara when she was a child, a deeper insight to Cassian's motivations... and so on.
