• The Dark Lord of the Sith relentlessly tracks a corrupt Imperial governor. But is Vader still driven by his quest for order - or has his encounters with shades from the past awoken new motivations?
•  Meanwhile, few figures in the galaxy are more different than Sabé, handmaiden of Padmé Amidala, and Ochi of Bestoon, assassin of the Sith. So when they're forced to work together in Vader's ambit and the knives inevitably come out, who's still standing at the end? And what will that lonely soul have to say when Vader returns?

    While I am enjoying this arc I do find that it needs to be finished up sooner than later and to move on to something that feels more meaningful. I like seeing Sabe and her involvement in things but it's leaning a bit too much into the prequel stuff that's a real reach, such as Kitster being here and having an actual pod racer that Vader is going to use to deal with the machine problem. It's not bad per se but it's just too obvious when there needs to be more subtle approaches to using this kind of stuff. Ienco's artwork helps to smooth over a lot of things for me as he delivers a great look and feel for the characters and especially the action, especially reading this one after the end of the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series.

    Even if the story itself in this issue isn't entirely enthralling, it could be setting up the necessary components of the next issue to let the creators exceed expectations, which would ultimately justify this relatively stagnant experience, in service of a fulfilling payoff. Read Full Review
