    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 7, 2022

    There's a lot to like with this installment and some of the ideas it wants to play with but it also felt like a story that needed to be two issues so that it could dig into everything. The time with Yularen and just getting to where Mekedrix is should have been its own issue and going further into the confrontation the next one. The compression makes for a fine story but you see the shades of something more meaningful here, especially as Cantwell so smartly nails the dialogue and complexity of the moral issues at play here. It's a solid book, no bones about it at all, and it looks great, again leading me to wish that Musabekov could do a few more stories in this era. Read Full Review

    While not essential to read if you are just a more casual Star Wars fan it is still worth it if you are still wanting more backstory on Obi Wan after the recent Disney+ series and some more of the character with Anakin Skywalker. Read Full Review
