    OverallAnother great issue that expands on what we know about The Knights of Ren, which is something we really should have gotten from the sequel trilogy. Maybe these guys will get a comic book spin-off on the strength of this issue. Read Full Review

    Were this adventure to tie more heavily into the overall Crimson Reign storyline, it might have been even more effective, but, as it stands, it still makes for a thrilling adventure. Read Full Review

    The issue ends with a mission complete, but not without laying down ground for further stories involving the Knights of Ren in the future or past. Vader certainly now know about the Knights form this period now. Its a sure bet that he wont be forgetting them any time soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Apr 28, 2022

    The art by Steven Cummings and inks by Victor Olazaba absolutely immerse one in the feel of Star Wars. The ships, cantinas and Mustafar itself are all well rendered. The character designs of the various Knights could use more differentiation. Beyond Ren himself and the highly entertaining Bazzra, the other Knights feel a bit interchangeable here. But as a whole they are an interesting bunch and it would be interesting to see Soule tackle them in a series all their own to give them even more depth. Read Full Review

    I've not been a fan of the Knights of Ren for some time with past comic appearances and this one doesn't change that impression much. Soule does a decent job with it in using them to push forward Qi'ra's goals and all, but these aren't characters with personality. They're basically ciphers with identifiable quirks behind masks when they could be so much more. I do like a few of the nods we get here with the Fortress itself and Vader is always fun no matter what as Soule generally handles him right, but this feels like a weak installment especially after last week helped to improve things a lot.
