    Another sensational chapter of the exploits of this marvelous malefactor. The story has a year's worth of surprises in one issue and the visuals are wonderful. This continues to be one of the best original Star Wars tales published. Read Full Review

    Overall, it’s a pretty solid installment in what has been a pretty great arc. The issue leaves us on a big cliffhanger and I’m looking forward to see what ramifications the next issue will have for the characters and for the series as a whole. Read Full Review

    While this arc isn't working for me in total, I am definitely enjoying this issue as it digs into Triple-Zero's past and the relationship that exists between him and Aphra. Aphra's realizing more and more about herself, things that opened up more after meeting Tolvan, and seeing that all play out here is definitely interesting and has me wondering if she really is going to be a different person by the time this arc wraps up and moves forward into the next piece. Spurrier handles the dialogue-heavy installment well and digs into both characters with what makes them tick and their relationship to be as interesting as it is. Laiso handles all of this material well, too, since it's not the easiest thing in the world to make engaging from a visual standpoint. But with some creative moments and nods to other characters out in the galaxy, it's able to shake things up just enough. Read Full Review
