    A really strong story, which gives us a backstory for The Archivist, but also makes subtle mention of Qi'ra's past association with Darth Maul. I can't wait to see where this story goes as we get closer to that final book. Read Full Review

    Though theres not much action this issue, we get a lot of different locations, and Cummings perfectly captures Madelins withering away, as the dark side of the force eats away at her over time. Great work! Read Full Review

    Were this chapter also able to add some narrative momentum to the Crimson Reign event, it would have been a standout issue, though this installment will surely delight longtime fans of the franchise. Read Full Review

    The art is perfect for this book, it keeps our attention through some heavy exposition and shows the weight of Madelin's discoveries through a physical transformation. It is a bit more animated in style but still feels very much a part of the classic Star Wars universe. Charles Soule has great skill in building up new characters, but allowing us this time with a unique perspective he breaths new life into this series. We already know Qi'ra has alot of power and loyal followers. It's definitely time to move onto other interesting facets such as this one to expand the story into new and interesting places.
