The horror continues as THE SCOURGE begins to execute its grand plan, orchestrating its droid minions across the galaxy.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 13, 2023

    The scale of this story is one that still feels like it upsets the balance of going into Return of the Jedi and that's just how my mind works in trying to place it within the context of everything. Beyond just the awkward problem of dealing with the droids but also not dealing with the droids and their issues, the core series so far hasn't done much in a way. We do see how Scourge is making active moves to secure a better position but it's a mixed one on whether it's a good idea or not. This issue isn't bad at all but against the big picture I'm just not show how it'll all shake out in the end and just how it fits into everything. It's effective and mostly done through a kind of narration and it has some great artwork, but the scale just makes me hesitate. Read Full Review

    Soule gives us a galaxy far, far away that we've never seen before, while Ross makes the regulars look just right while creating new characters that fit right in.George Romero would be proud. Read Full Review

    Baked into the concept is something relatively campy, so even though we know the book likely won't come with any major payoffs, it could serve as an entertaining ancillary adventure. Read Full Review
