    This installment is a must-read for Asajj Ventress fans, though there's nothing about it that begs to be read for the more casual reader of the the prequel era. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of movement throughout this issue as we get to a number of places, interact with some name characters, and have a full arc of sorts for Ventress. It's definitely an all-ages book so it's light and aimed at the kind of messages you'd expect from it but it does it in a way that works by reminding us who Ventress is and that she isn't just your average person. There are some fun if brief action sequences but I just enjoyed seeing some good pacing and ideas at play here that had the right lighter look and tone to tie it all together with. Ventress doesn't get a lot of new material these days from what I can see so it's a nice touching point for fans to get a little more. Read Full Review
