    But Why Tho? - Adrian Aug 12, 2020

    While the redemption of Anakin Skywalker may be controversial for the fandom, this series and Star Wars: Darth Vader #4 continues to show fans that Anakin Skywalker has always been within the Dark Lord. I am eager for the next issue in the series to see how the team adds future depth to pop culture's most well-known villains. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Edward Lee Aug 21, 2020

    This whole series has been amazing Star Wars film reference stacked on amazing reference the whole way through. That's how to do Star Wars right. This issue is building up to what must ultimately mean closure for Vader with Padme's death, and added determination in his search for their son. After meeting Luke and confronting Padme's death, Vader must certainly feel something he hasn't felt in a while, hope. Hope is the weak point in his dark armor that will allow the Jedi in him to return in time. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 18, 2020

    I'm continuing to really enjoy this storyline as it deals with some good things that connect better in a post-Empire world where the prequels now exist. Vader's hunt for information on Padme makes a whole lot of sense in order to find out who hid Luke from him and to see what else may have been kept out of view. Pak's story gives it all the right intensity it needs as he moves forward with Vader while also delivering some big action sequences. I really like the little character moments and especially the blending of the flashbacks to what he's doing now as more of his past is really coming to the surface again after burying most of it so long ago.

    The book continues to find the right balance of exploring the character while avoiding completely humanizing him, which is sure to entertain all sorts of Star Wars fans. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime Aug 15, 2020

    I would never have expected to say this six months ago but it's very possible, depending on how the rest of this arc and future arcs go for all of the series, that this series is my favorite out of the current Marvel Star Wars lineup. I'm very happy to be back to a weekly schedule on Star Wars comics and I'm glad there are only a few weeks until the next installment in this series. I have no idea how this story will wrap up and I'm excited to find out. Read Full Review
