    This final issue of Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2's first story arc has forced me to make this clear. Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 is the best new Star Wars comic book series of 2013 " better even than Brian Wood and Carlos D'Anda's new eponymous Star Wars comic book series that has been getting a lot of attention. Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 is the best Star Wars comic book since Marvel Comics' Star Wars, which ran from the late 1970s to the mid-1980s. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Legacy #5 continues to spin a yarn that's both familiar and fresh. With the introduction of a new dark lord I can honestly say that I can't wait to read what happens next. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    I don't think there'll be a person unhappy with how this story arc ended. It contains everything you'd want in an epic Star Wars story. Really my only complaint is another issue would have allowed the Sith and Jedi battle a bit more room. For those of you wanting bang for your buck that's a good thing. Read Full Review

    The pacing of the issue also works well. As we watch Ania struggle to decide between leaving her allies and pursuing Master Val, we are also presented with the imminent threat to Val. So Bechko and Hardman are effective at ratcheting the tension up by showing the danger the heroes face. The tension doesn't really relent even after Ania finally catches up to Wredd, as she alone seems to be quite outmatched by Wredd. Overall, as an exciting conclusion to the first story arc of Star Wars Legacy, this issue is quite satisfying because of its art, action and plotting. Read Full Review

    "Star Wars: Legacy" #5 marks the conclusion of the first storyarc, but leaves a few more questions than answers. This series introduced a tight band of characters and dialed in the focus on them, leaving broad swatches of the universe undefined. Undoubtedly Bechko and Hardman intend to flesh that out a bit as they continue to develop the cast around Ania Solo. Like the original theatrical release, however, readers are left with a set of characters to relate to, assimilate with and cheer on. I just hope the creative team continues to build the cast to make them more sympathetic for readers, as right now the droid is the one I most identify with. Read Full Review
