    This issue is the clear standout so far, delivering horrors that are tame enough for young audiences yet macabre enough for adult readers. Read Full Review

    This issue's story is a fun callback to a forgotten corner of the Star Wars Universe, but the visuals do not help it. This is the first major miss for this series and I'm hoping the finale is better. Still work a look-see for those that remember the adventures of the ewoks from the 80's. Read Full Review

    The art's good and the story is a breezy enough read, but this wouldn't give the chills even for a seven-year-old, nor will it teach them any aspiring lessons. Read Full Review

    Darth Vader is up next in the series' conclusion. As far as this issue is concerned, it was a miss where a hit was was needed to balance things out in the positive column. Read Full Review

    Tales from Vader’s Castle #4 must have been the short straw of the story ideas and neither the writer nor the artists are on their game for this issue. As a young Star Wars fan’s read with a Halloween twist, it’s boring. As a monster story or a new delve into the forest moon of Endor, it offers no explanation for the cause of its events nor any Star Wars detail worth knowing. So far, Tales from Vader’s Castle has been defined by its hit-and-miss nature and followed every good issue with a bad one. The best thing I can say for this issue is that it put its tally in the “miss” column and hopefully cleared the way for the final issue to finish that pattern strongly. Read Full Review
