    A good issue, although it probably should have been dubbed "Kylo and Snoke" since it's more about Kylo. Still, it's an enjoyable little tale that connects well to the original trilogy which is enough to get most Star Wars fans cheering. Read Full Review

    Fans who were expecting more insight into Snoke's backstory will surely be disappointed, but with Star Wars: The Last Jedi confirming how the Supreme Leader isn't an integral part of the Skywalker Saga, readers get to witness the disturbing relationship between the two characters unfold.

    It's probably in my top five of the stories to come out of this whole maxiseries. It serves as a good example of an ideal issue for this series, encapsulating the essence of a character in a new story. The previous two issues, Poe and Hux, did similarly well. I had been getting a bit tired of the series after a year but this issue has made me intrigued to see how Taylor will handle the issue actually meant to focus on Kylo. I have high expectations for it and I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next. Read Full Review

    While it's easy to just write off Snoke in general I'm hopeful that we get a lot more background on him in the years to come and how he figures into everything that has come before. The franchise has always moved backwards in interesting ways to fill the gaps and expand on things which then influence the other works. Tom Taylor does what he can with the character here since you can't make big revelations in the comics at this point and Kirk's artwork is generally solid throughout with a couple of exceptions. I liked seeing some of the things that came from this, especially with how Snoke views Luke, and to see more of the past being put down so as to allow this generation to move forward. Definitely an interesting book overall. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Sep 21, 2019

    Nothing is learned of Snoke or his apprentice in this issue. It's a side story that didn't need to be told. The visuals are passable, but the colors should have cheated more with the reality of this franchise. If you're hungry for a Star Wars tale, this will only satisfy you for as long as you read it. Once done, this will be forgotten. Read Full Review
