    I'm almost running out of things to say about this series what with it being so consistently great, but I'll continuing talking about it for those that may forget why they should be reading it. I've said previously that this is the only Star Wars title I'm currently reading and that's because I don't think any of the others could hold a torch to what the creative team is accomplishing here. If you love Star Wars because of the strong characters, look no further than this series for enjoyment. Read Full Review

    Combined with another batch of Guzman's incredible interiors and a great cliffhanger, Cry of Shadows #3 shows no signs this series of letting up. If you love Darth Vader stories—or just great Star Wars stories in general—you should be reading this book. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Feb 18, 2014

    Awkward disembodied heads aside, Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadow was an excellent comic. It was enjoyable, sassy, and dramatic without taking itself too seriously. Stuff happened, and I dug it. 8/10. Read it. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #3 is the best issue in the series so far but considering I've been struggling with this series it's all relative. The setup that leads to Hock taking center stage and becoming the “hero” was due to egregious mistakes that can be overlooked but only due to the desire to see Hock finally perform some character-defining action. And in Hock doing so breathes the slightest bit of life into this series creating potential for the next issue and an opportunity for the series to get on track. At least that's what I'm hoping.

    All I can say is Holy Sh!#. I came into this series with a bit of skepticism, but this issue not only erased those feelings but made me excited to be a part of this. The first two issues were entertaining enough to make me want to keep reading but this issue made me put it in my 'pull list.'
