The artwork in the book is fantastic. The line art is very detailed and true to form -- very realistic looking. The coloring is even more impressive as it makes the pages pop (particularly on the Kindle edition). The one drawback to the art is that the double splash pages don't show up well on the digital versions and they aren't formatted to allow for zooming in to see the action or read the dialog very easily.
Overall, this is an okay read. I'm not sure it really does much to bridge the two movies aside from simply explaining how Phasma is still around in The Last Jedi. Sadly, it doesn't provide much in the way of further expansion on the character of Captain Phasma, nor does it provide any additional information about The First Order.
After being dumped in the trash compactor by Finn and Han, Phasma breaks free, wipes First Order Records, and gives chase to the one man in the order to know she did it.
Aesthetically it works, even if Phasma has a bad habit of posing like Batman in a handful of panels. The visual/literal language left me scratching my head and doubling back on panels to suss out how Phasma got into to and out of certain situations. If you're looking to learn more about the titular character, prepare to be left with more questions than answers about the First Order's chrome clad Capitan. Despite a wickedly cool destination (that final scene with Rivas is pretty tight) this was a pretty wimpy offering meant to the up continuity and promote the Last Jedi.
