    Be prepared for your jaw to hit the floor with the conclusion of this storyline. Soule continues his stunning winning streak with an outstanding conclusion to his Mon Cala saga. The artwork is also stellar, with some incredibly memorable visual moments. This is another “Must-Own” Star Wars chapter. Read Full Review

    You do reach for an issue of this series in complete and utter confidence that the story it will tell you will be interesting, the dialogue authentic and the art beautiful. It is perhaps the only Star Wars Marvel title that I can say that about. This issue fulfills those expectations yet again. Read Full Review

    Darth Vader 17 is bursting with action and a fantastic end to the Burning Sea story arc. Easily one of the best Star Wars comics I've read this year. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 19, 2018

    I enjoyed this arc overall, more so than the main series in the post-ANH period, as it delved into some good stuff in seeing how brutal Tarkin is and dabbling with the Inquisitors and the Order 66 element well. Read Full Review

    This was a great, challenging issue to read that added interesting layers to Vader as well as challenge the perception of prophecy and belief in the Jedi. Read Full Review

    Compared to other bouts with Jedi in earlier issues, Vader's conflict with Barr felt the most fulfilling, as it offered readers not only compelling action but some surprising turns of events. Read Full Review

    While the Empire wins the day, an important admiral and a fleet of ships manage to escape the destruction of their homeworld. As Barr foresaw, the Rebellion just got stronger. But was the near total destruction of the surface world of Mon Cala worth it? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Another great story. This is even brings some more unity to the whole Star Wars saga. The stakes are high and still offers some expected twists and turns. I continue to absolutely love this series.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    Just when you think you know what’s going on, Soule goes ahead and does the old switch-a-roo and turns this last couple of issues upside down. We were led to believe that Barr was a Jedi Master and that he was a good guy. Turns out, neither of those are true at all.

    The issue opens with Barr asking for Order 66 and explains to the clones that the Inquisitors were once defected Jedi’s. Since the inquisitors admitted to the clones in front of Barr AND since we find out that the clones are basically secretly programmed to kill all Jedi on sight, more

    This issue concludes what’s been a fabulous arc, with another superb issue. The reveal of who was behind the assassination of the imperial ambassador and reveal that he was a wee bit unhinged were unexpected (not just to me but to Lee-Char too) but was a great twist. Story ends in the place you expected it too, but was a great journey getting there.

    This issue was a pretty strong conclusion to the "Burning Seas" story arc, but it did feel a little rushed. I liked Sixth Brother's backstabbing, it was perfectly in line with how I expect the inquisitors to act. I would have liked to see a little more of Vader's duel with Barr, we didn't even get to see his actual death. I was actually a bit surprised Barr was the one who bombed the ambassador's shuttle in the first issue, but I guess his plan did make some sense. It does feel like a bit of a stretch that he could predict that causing the destruction of Mon Cala could lead to the events of the Original Trilogy, but he is a Jedi so I suppose anything is possible. I've very curious what will happen with Verla, I'm assuming she escaped for a more

    I loved how the ending ended with the proficiency, but for some reason this just has me wishing for a great stand a lone Star Wars comic series.
