    Honestly, I don't know what to expect next month. If it's anything like it was here, I'll probably have to take a nap or something afterwards. I see some pretty intense stuff coming up, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss a single thing. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Jan 8, 2014

    After what could be considered a major misstep last issue, Brian Wood brings the book roaring back to form with an expertly crafted opening chapter to this two part tale. Most of us probably didn't need a reminder that Darth Vader was a badass, but this story does that as well as any you'll find in the movies or expanded universe. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 11, 2014

    Given the number of titles in Marvel's stable I can't see any Star Wars title getting the kind of focus Dark Horse has given them since acquiring the rights in 1991. Although the company has put quite a bit of mediocre comics under the brand I've been thoroughly enjoying this series and will be sad to see it come to a premature end. Best of the week.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jan 10, 2014

    Star Wars #13 is a departure into some new territory, that stumbles slightly but impresses nonetheless. The force is indeed strong with this one. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Alan Shields Jan 7, 2014

    All in all, Star Wars continues to be a very strong book, and while this arc initially feels unnecessary, there is nothing wrong with taking a breather, and you can trust Brian Wood to tell a decent story nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Boyd Reynolds Jan 8, 2014

    Star Wars #13 is not as strong as the series predecessors, but it does give an interesting look at what life is like living with our favorite Dark Lord of the Sith. Read Full Review

    Vader doing what he does best, its good to see him getting the spotlight after being (justifiably) sidelined.

    While this issue focuses on Darth Vader, its great one. Art, colors and writing continue to be very good. I definitely recommend this series to all who like Star Wars, Sci-Fi and comics in general.
