    After previous issues in this five-chapter storyline felt like they were spinning their wheels or distracting from the overall narrative at hand, this penultimate issue keeps a stronger narrative momentum, uniting all the important factors of the book at an engaging pace. Read Full Review

    This installment has some decent stuff in showing us how Vader and Palpatine operate together as he gets Vader to train with him for a bit while exercising his complete control over his apprentice. There's a lot of dialogue in this issue as we see how Qi'ra wraps up events with Cadeliah and her attempt to draw in more to help protect the Archivist, but it all leads to the larger action sequence. I'm curious to see less the finale and more the fallout from it with who has survived and where they go to ground after this when you look at where various elements show up in a post-ROTJ world. It's a mixed series at best that I think just gave too much into the pressure of a sprawling event that never had clear enough direction or characters to sustain it. It has its moments but those go only so far. Read Full Review

    I am really only keeping going with this one as I started it and want to finish it. I would not recommend this series at all as there is heaps of better Star Wars content around now. Go watch season 3 of the Mandolorian or read the comic book series. Read Full Review

    I'm still not sold on this Faraday Cage. I like how the Emperor spars with Vader in the beginning and the event seems epic. Let's see how it plays out in the last issue. I hear there's another event right after this one. They have to stop with all of these events.

    This issue was much better. But this setup should have happened by issue 2. I have a feeling we were baited pretty hard with this sith lord. With one issue left, what can they possibly do with whatever sith comes back even if they do? Maybe one will come back and it will lead into another series but I doubt it.
    Or Palpatine will stop it and take it for himself. Boring too. I don't think disney understands that jedi and sith need force users to fight against. It's so fucking boring and frustrating to see normal ass soldiers and Bounty Hunters being the enemy.

    If they somehow make it so qira gets palps on the defensive without another sith lord to challenge him I'm going to be pissed. To diminish the most powerful sith of al more
