Dawn of the Jedi is something different. It removes the elements where the Jedi are battling the Sith or trying to save the galaxy. In this incarnation the Jedi are just beings trying to survive and learn. That doesn't mean there isn't drama and intruders and that is where this book picks up the pace. If you have any interest in Star Wars, especially the very beginnings of Star Wars, then this book is for you. Read Full Review
The art is where this book really shines. Jan Duursema is not only penciling the best Star Wars art in comics, she's laying down some of the most solid art in comics, period. From start to finish this issue is consistent in it's quality. There is no indication that this book was rushed at any point and the pencils are rock solid on every page. The fight scenes are dynamic and the large panels are intricate and easy on the eyes. Duursema is locked in on this title and I can't wait to see what she has in store for the “Force Storm” that is coming. Read Full Review
Further complicating matters is the forced and bland dialogue. Characters generally all sound the same, and while Shae has a spunky attitude that sets her apart from the rest, her speech is so grating that it might be best if she just kept quiet.

It is awkward and off-putting, and definitely not derivative of the exciting space opera known as Star Wars. Read Full Review
