    The art, the writing, the colors and the great cliffhanger combine into a grand adventure worth coming back for. It's a true tribute to what stylistic and artistic risks can be taken at IDW under their Star Wars books. Read Full Review

    Embracing this subgenre worked surprisingly well for this Halloween-themed book, managing to both pay respects to authentic zombie lore while also telling a believable tale within the Star Wars franchise. Read Full Review

    Ghosts of Vader's castle feels like a classic 80s comic in terms of it's art style. The depictions of R2 and 3PO remind me of the seldom remembered Droids cartoon series. Including Jar Jar hinders the story because while I feel he is a misunderstood character he is also hard to write and therefore read. The same is true of Anakin who tends to be one dimensional at times. Of course his inclusion hints that whatever took place in Rubinero would no doubt find it's way to Castle Vader. Read Full Review

    The stage has been set. Vanee continues his plot for revenge, while Milo Graf finds himself in danger. There is sure to be more stories of terror and misfortune as all paths lead back to Vader's Castle. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed this issue. It deviated from conventional Star Wars to something different entirely, but it was welcomed. Seeing Anakin, Padme and Jar-Jar took me back to being a kid and watching the prequels, and contrary to popular opinion, I like Jar Jar. Good start and I look forward to next issue.
