    But Why Tho? - Adrian Oct 7, 2020

    Despite being a story in a series for a younger audience, Brokenshire brings new elements to a scene in arguably the best Star Wars movie. That is no small feat as he balances the dominating presence of Darth Vader while also giving the reader a mix of light-hearted elements. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Oct 14, 2020

    I find it hilarious that I always pick up these #1 Star Wars comics in an attempt to get a deep and personal Star Wars story and instead get a kids book. The themes are simple and understandable for a young reader and that is what the book sets out to do. However, as an adult I don't think that it connects very well to me. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 13, 2020

    The issue's back-up story takes place during the Battle of Hoth as we follow Darth Vader searching the Rebel Base on Hoth for Luke Skkywalker. While “Tales of Villainy: Invasion of Echo Base” doesn't add much to the story we already know, it is fun seeing Vader in full power here on the hunt for his son. I also preferred Nick Brokenshire's art to that of Ilias Kyriazis in the main story. Also, I have to say I'm far more intrigued by the idea of backstories being part of “Tales of Villany” than the previous comic's hit-and-miss “Tales from Wild Space.” Read Full Review
