    It's seems like this series just got started and there's only one more to go? Each issue has built beautifully on the previous and I eagerly await the finale of this entertaining read. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #4 is a fun book, that may carry a predictable plot but there are enough worthwhile elements to easily justify a purchase. Recommended. Read Full Review

    There is no evil here, just human efficiency. Cold calculated efficiency, like piloting a drone over an Afghani villager's wedding party. Not bad for a Star Wars book eh? And that's why you should be reading it. Writer Tim Seidell has taken a Star Wars book and made it extremely relevant to our own war inflicted times, shining a spotlight on the psychology of soldiering, a career where you kill other human beings simply because it's your job to do so.

    Fortunately, the issue is salvaged by Tim Siedell's knack for internal dialogue and Gabriel Guzman's breathtaking pencils. A very unconventional (and surprising) ending also points to a great show down coming up in the final issue, which will hopefully pull everything back to the incredible quality of the series' previous installments.

    I'm going to have to go with my gut for the rating on this one. Granted I have high expectations for Sidell and Vader, but with a month in-between issues my expectations reset just in time for a new issue. While I enjoyed this issue and found it entertaining, I know that the next is going to be far better because of the work done in this issue. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #4 suffers from the same problems that plagued earlier issues and that's Hock as a main character, and ironically, Darth Vader's incompetence. There's an interesting sequence when Hock meets the separatist leadership and the exchange with them but the Mandalorian Anomaly steals this issue and comes off as a much intriguing character in just a couple of panels. And instead of capitalizing on the character-defining actions from last issue, Hock's character becomes an enigma again and so does the purpose of this series. Read Full Review
