    Star Wars: Dark Times – A Spark Remains, has been an extremely enjoyable read, but most of the other Dark Horse Star Wars titles are just as good as well. Dark Horse has to be congratulated for putting out so many consistently enjoyable Star Wars titles in 2013. If you haven't already explored their expanded Star Wars universe, then I strongly suggest you make it your new years resolution to check them out in 2014. Read Full Review

    Dark Times is among the best of the Star Wars comics out there today. This mini-series is a very good one and there are a lot of interesting players involved in this series to make it that way. However, the ending leaves a lot to be desired. I'm not expecting mass death but I was expecting to see the pieces that were moved into position over four issues to be used, not ignored, in the fifth. This was very nearly a perfect series but an average ending denies that status. Read Full Review

    Eh" kind of. As much as I love this time period in Star Wars lore, I imagine that it's hard to consistently write stories which shake things up when future cannon has already been so well established. But Stradley proved with issues #2 and #3 of the series that surprises and great story telling can still occur. Read Full Review
