    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 17, 2020

    While we don't get a lot of forward progress here, Pak brings in some interesting new characters for the continuity to deal with and I'm curious about both. Ochi's one that you can see being dealt with and cast aside by the end of it if not sooner while Bogg has more potential down the line that can be drawn upon in interesting ways. I like what Ienco brings to the book with some really good action while also tying some spot on flashback moments in the same black and red way that really hits a sweet spot. The nature of Vader is being explored well even while he's still the least talkative of characters in general. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime Nov 13, 2020

    I'm a little bit tentative about how the rest of the arc will play out because I think it'll be a challenge to balance all of these different and somewhat unrelated elements from The Rise of Skywalker while telling a satisfying Vader story that fits with the direction of his character arc, but the series hasn't disappointed me yet. I'm happy to see the writer/artist team stay the same for at least the first two arcs, I think the ongoings work well when they have consistency like that. This series has been a nice surprise for me and I'm looking forward to seeing what directions the future arcs go, even if this arc doesn't end up landing perfectly for me. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 16, 2020

    Far from 100%, Vader survives the assassin's attacks and discovers something unexpected calling out to him that may offer some assistance as the comic takes a truly bizarre turn that has ties to scenes from Rise of Skywalker which failed to make it into the film (and I can guess why).
