    An outstanding read that only increases my anticipation for this television show's return. So good! Read Full Review

    All-in-all, KANAN #6 is a solid issue, a quality issue, and I think it deserves more attention. Between the excitement over STAR WARS, and DARTH VADER, and even SHATTERED EMPIRE, people may not pay attention to a comic based on a “kid's” show. It's actually one of the better told stories in the STAR WARS universe, and that shows no signs of changing. Read Full Review

    With my initial wariness subsiding that the series would stick to the present, this is definitely a solid bridging piece from past to present before we dig back into the potentially rich life of Kanan as he gets underway on his own. Weisman handles the main cast here well enough while keeping the focus on Kanan, all while ensuring that the reminders of the past are there " yet not what they seem in some ways. Read Full Review

    Kanan #6 marks a bold new direction for the series, as having already seen how Kanan went from Caleb to rebel, we are now starting to see how this reflects on the present. This is all mixed in with some intriguing flashbacks, with a climax that leads us into the next arc in a tantalising manner. Read Full Review

    Now, above I discussed a lot of the character interaction and more about the relationships between characters and the well-crafted mental state of the protagonist. That's because, honestly, the plot of this supply run and Kanan's encounter with the thugs and the end result is just okay. Not bad, just okay. It makes for a fine backdrop to the good stuff and Camagni and Curiel do a good job with the action scenes but such aspects like the ending just didn't hit home. I get it; the nature of the ongoing comic series requires a reason at the end to get a reader to come back, but considering this is the epilogue of the first "book", I would have much rather there be a bit more tying up here instead of this new dangling plot. At this point, we're in for the book and willing to see where the creative team will take us. This ending just felt a bit flat. Read Full Review

    A ghostly final scene is pure Star Wars, and it seems that this narrative shift is in keeping with the bigger story the expanded comics series is telling at the moment. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 23, 2015

    Star Wars: Kanan continues to lag behind Marvel's various other Star Wars projects. There's plenty of potential with the concept, but this issue struggles to make anything of Kanan's return to Kaller or offer an effective transition into the second story arc. The art is at least consistent with previous issues, but not up to Larraz's storytelling standard. Read Full Review

    "Kanan" opens the second arc with a very average effort. Kanan returns to Kaller, the planet in the first arc, and runs into many of the same characters from that arc. The comic under utilizes the supporting cast from the TV show, but when they appear, the depictions are great. The comic also has some strange results from the knife wound at the end that don't quite add up. The visuals in the book look great as they seem to channel the TV show well. Overall, this comic book is struggling to determine what audience it wants to cater to: the show or comic fans. Hopefully the next issue will correct the course. This is an average comic.
