    While Maul has played an important role in a number of mediums since his debut, this is yet another demonstration of the character's effectiveness, which also falls in line with the spirit of this younger-skewing title while also offering long-time fans a fulfilling tale of terror.

    Comics: The Gathering - Sam Jarron Oct 2, 2019

    I really liked the issue; it was a great start to the series. The art by Franceso Francavilla and Megan Levens did a great job of adding a spooky atmosphere to the story. The first series had good art, but the framing story's art didn't seem very spooky; now everything has dark and scary art; Vanee looks terrifying. I'm excited to see where this series goes; it looks like next issue will feature Tarkin as the focus of Vanee's next story. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Oct 8, 2019

    A fan favorite foe appears to cause trouble, though the colors make the book hard to see. This was a decent read, with the story being good scary stuff for young readers, and the art full of several frights. Unfortunately the colors are not great, making several panels difficult to discern. Not a bad read, but not a great one. Read Full Review
