    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Oct 15, 2018

    Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle #1is a fun issue that blends the sci-fi and horror genres well. It will be interesting to see how Scott manages to play around with other horror tropes as the mini-series goes on, but so far it offers a different look at the galaxy far, far away.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Oct 3, 2018

    This Star Wars series that was advertised to be an all-ages spooky comic book does not deliver on a single promise. The story is boring, the characters are uninteresting, and the art is dull. To add to the disappointment, there is not a single thing even remotely spooky about any of it, which has a little to do with the fact that nothing really happens in it at all. This issue feels like IDW lazily put this series together and threw Star Wars on the cover for a quick cash grab. Read Full Review
