    Comicosity - Matt Santori May 4, 2013

    Keeping in mind the landscape Dark Horse is working with, these two stories were brilliant choices. Brian Wood's Star Wars series, set in the days after A New Hope, has been a runaway success, bringing the comic franchise back to its roots and garnering a great deal of critical acclaim. Wood's story here is simple, but features the man in black himself, Darth Vader, in a tale of backstabbing and clever maneuvering that fits right into the monthly series thematically without either being required reading or contradictory. Ryan Odagawa's art is a little stiffer than the D'Anda's gorgeous monthly installments, but that is fairly mitigated by the focus here on masked and armored figures Darth Vader and Boba Fett.

    . . FREE! double sided flipbook. some ADs. . . The Star wars side of this book is a keeper, esp. if you are reading Brian Wood's new love letter to the original trilogy. This series is exactly what an old SW fan, such as myself, has been waiting for. This standalone is a fan's dream of seeing Vader AND Fett in somewhat of a "team-up", is you will. Very nice art, writing and dialog although maybe not the perfect construction. . . Captian Midnight manages to pique my interest, even if the genre isnt my favorite. This and the additional mini cram in to make a rather nice FCBD treat.
