    Hopefully we see more of Kitster, Wald and their invention going forward but even a glimpse and their lives is interesting. Sabe is such a strong foil for Vader that the story has a renewed momentum and the art and colors seem to recognize this popping with energy in every panel. Read Full Review

    With an issue like this, the larger scope is something that works well but I can totally understand why it will frustrate any number of fans who are tired of the deep connections that just make everything too connected. And I'll even agree with them on this particular case with the former slaves. The Sabe storyline itself makes sense and works well and I can see how she would use her knowledge of how Vader is Anakin to achieve her goals which are in turn Padem's goals. With the background of the novel and how those two spent time together during Padme's time in office, it all makes a lot of sense. Pak keeps things moving well here and leaves me really enjoying every scene that Sabe is in. The artwork is solid, the fight sequence is well-laid out, and the design as a whole delivers just right. I'm curious to see where this storyline will go. Read Full Review
