    And yes, as mentioned in the letter columns, I want Soule to work on a Sith Jedi Wars series focused on events from the distant past. Make it so, Marvel & Lucasfilm! Read Full Review

    OBI-WAN & ANAKIN sacrifices a potentially engaging story for incredible character analysis. At times this feels like an unnecessary trade-off and Charles Soule could have both if he really tried. This is especially frustrating when every character but Anakin feels woefully underdeveloped. With only two issues to go, it's unclear how deeply Soule plans to explore the intriguing world of Carnelion IV, or if we'll ever learn what it means to be Open or Closed. No matter what Soule does, though, Marco Checchetto makes this book an instant purchase because of his amazing artwork. Read Full Review

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault Mar 23, 2016

    Obi-Wan and Anakin continues to be the most meditative of the various Star Wars comics currently on shelves, and one of the best explorations of Anakins gradual decent into darkness. Read Full Review

    Don't skip this series solely because of the prequels era it takes place, it's worth giving a chance. Read Full Review

    I thought this was an awesome issue. There were many things that were explored. Obi Wan explains some of the doubt that he had while training Anakin and his misunderstanding of the Jedi Order while there are some great moments between Anakin and a young girl that they met in the earlier issues. The flashbacks with Palpatine and Anakin on Coruscant are really enjoyable too.

    I think the 4th issue help create the backstory between the Open and Closed very well and gave reason for the war that's being fought within the series.

    Pretty decent. Series gets better and better after rough start.

    We all have knee-jerk reactions against anything t do with the prequels, yet this is shaping up to be the best Marvel Star Wars mini-series yet. I particularly like the complexity being developed in Anakin, it makes his character far more compelling than he ever was in the movies.

    This series is still strong, but I'm worried that the newly added characters will be lost to the wayside in an attempt at freshly characterizing Anakin and Obi-Wan. Perhaps that will prove to be this series' downfall, as it is with this issue, but there's still so very much to recommend with this issue. Lots of interesting stuff concerning intervention, appropriate channels for use of the Force, and a Jedi's role both to persons and peoples, as well as entire civilizations and societies at large. The chance cube, in one flashback, becomes in a sense a symbol for the chaotic nature of the universe and even the Force, and that by influencing it, Anakin is altering the balance of causality. The Jedi teach that patience is one of the most important virtues for this reason, that a good act in one situation may lead to cataclysmic evil. Unforeseen consequences. Blowback. Really interesting stuff here.
