    Kanan – The Last Padawan continues to mine some interesting points in the post Clone Wars territory with a character that I've grown to like through the Star Wars Rebels series. This extended look at part of his past has been illuminating and really does alter your view of the series, though I hope we get some of this showing up in that sometime as it would be wonderfully connective. This installment show just how at east Caleb is with the kind of lifestyle that Kasmir represents, but also puts in that nagging bit in his mind that tells him he should be striving for something more. But what he learns here will serve him well in the long run, and that's important. Weisman continues to do a solid job with all of the characters here and I continue to adore Larraz's artwork with the way he populates a panel, never mind the panel layout themselves. The richness in the designs and the camera angles are fantastic, making it a pretty engaging series of locales that we see. Read Full Review

    Kanan is a comic book for those interested in the TV Show, but is also familiar with comic books. Because the comic book is so different in its presentation, those that are only picking this up to fill out the Star Wars comic line are probably going to be disappointed. The comic reads a lot like other show episodes that were converted to a comic book mini-series. Plenty seems to be left off panel. With the strong artwork the limited dialogue works out well for the issue. I recommend giving this a try. I enjoyed this penultimate issue and am eager to see how it finishes up. Read Full Review

    Kanan: The Last Padawan #4 was yet another fabulous entry into this fun series, setting up the conclusion perfectly. Having great depth, plenty of fun and an exciting tempo, this penultimate issue more than impressed, and will surely leave Star Wars fans satisfied. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue is a step up from the last two in terms of the story and pace. Weisman and Larraz work closely to create an artistically fine comic book, that fans of Star Wars are bound to fall in love with. The story is picking up, so get stoked! Read Full Review

    With the comics of Star Wars, Darth Vader, and the other related mini-series currently being exemplars of how to do a licensed tie-in, Kanan the Last Padawan struggles to meets this quality, being left as it is to beat its own drum. Leaving us on a cliffhanger for the final chapter, there's more than enough here to keep fans of Rebels hooked for more, even if it feels like a lengthy one-shot stretched out a bit too thin.

    Kanan is failing to keep pace with the other Star Wars comics right now. It certainly looks great, but the series seems content to spin in circles as it explores Caleb Dume's early evolution from Jedi to smuggler. Hopefully the next issue can offer a change of direction and finally restore this book's momentum. Read Full Review
