    Slice this emotional journey together with action sequences (both Temple-sanctioned and not), and you have an issue bursting with excitement and character and world-building that makes it the series' best yet. It's not necessary for you to watch STAR WARS REBELS to understand what happens here, but you'll certainly benefit, and this comic makes the show so much better. The Star Wars comics published by Marvel have been a mixed bag in terms of how they contribute to the franchise, and KANAN: THE LAST PADAWN distinguishes itself as one of the good ones. For Star Wars fans, it's a must-read. Read Full Review

    The return of Larraz to the artwork here is definitely welcome as I really like his style and find it works perfectly for this book. I even want to see his take on the Rebels side a bit more now. I was quite surprised to see this book go back as far as it does to tell a new Kanan story as I expected something following-up from where we left him in the past. The result here is good though as it gives us an opportunity to push back deeper into The Clones Wars period and establish new ties and connections for the character, light as they may be. Star Wars is made up of far too many coincidences, but it's part of the charm of it. Weisman largely nails it here and has me wanting to see more of Billaba and even more of Caleb as an initiate. Combined with Larraz's solid style, panel layout and presentation of action, it's a great pairing that's resulting in some very fun and enjoyable material. Read Full Review

    Putting the "Padawan" back into the title of the book brings with it a stronger focus on the past, with this entire issue a flashback within what is already effectively a flashback series. Read Full Review

    Kanan: The Last Padawan #7 was an interesting new direction for the comics, as despite failing to capture my excitement, it does allow for a promising twist to the narrative. So by all means pick this up, but if you've not tried the series before, this may not be the best one to start with. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 29, 2015

    This series continues to be the weak link in Marvel's otherwise solid lineup of Star Wars comics. Perhaps the book's biggest flaw is that there's no real sense of direction or driving purpose. Read Full Review
