    While I haven't cared much for the storyline with the Governor as she's far too underdeveloped overall and just never connected well as a character, the use of Sabe is what has driven the whole thing well. I like the place she's put in here at the end and seeing the choice she makes while also understanding how Vader's view of things is changing more and more as well. A couple of decades worth of manipulation means it can't last forever and exploring some of that is fun. It's a decent read with some great artwork. I'll be glad to move on from some of these legacy characters, however, and see where it shifts to next with Coruscant and Palpatine. Read Full Review

    Given how difficult it is to show new facets of Vader, the book succeeds in that realm, leaving us to wonder with anticipation where his allyship with Sab could take them next. Read Full Review

    I thought this was a pretty good issue. At least it showed that Vader was a badass but not invulnerable. He goes up against a couple of impossible targets and beats them, but not without sacrificing himself. Sabe makes a conscious decision to save him but really considers it first. Some good action in this.
