    This is fun and surprising as Vader plays chess instead of barreling in with a lightsaber, actually fulfilling his Sith mandate to learn and crave. Lots to like in this issue, and no matter your Star Wars experience, this will satisfy your interest in the Imperial era.  Read Full Review

    While I enjoy a lot of the Vader book in general, this Crimson Dawn material has left me uncertain about what's trying to be accomplished. It's plans within plans and it's unclear what's actually true or not in terms of motivations. Which can be compelling at times but it's just falling a bit flat for me in a number of ways. Where the book does succeed is with what we see with Sabe in how she composes and handles herself against Vader, easily reminding why she was the first and closest of the handmaidens of Padme's and why she's able to deal with Vader as she can. Part of me wishes they'd go into adapting and expanding some of those novels from that period, or just really giving us a lot more on Sabe in general. There are a lot of good stories to be had there and the taste of it we get here is strong. Read Full Review

    Despite the messy narrative threads, we're given a handful of compelling action sequences and double-crosses, even if the overall narrative feels like it's treading water. Read Full Review

    The overall art on this issue is excellent with characters and action in top form, but the creatures that take up part of the issue look absolutely absurd. Read Full Review
