    While OBI-WAN & ANAKIN #4 may be the worst issue of the series in some respects, it also includes two of its best scenes. Couple that with the consistently incredible art of Marco Checchetto, and you have a book that succeeds. It adds truly significant details to the life and feelings of arguably the most important STAR WARS character, Anakin Skywalker. Though the overall story may feel like setup for the final issue, Charles Soule manages to include enough bits of great storytelling that this book is still really enjoyable. Read Full Review

    The parts of this series work very well but I'm still uncertain of it as a whole. I'm wondering just how much better this will read in a complete form as opposed to monthly while also just wanting to see a whole series designed around Palpatine's manipulations of Anakin as it's simply delightful knowing the dynamic and end intentions. Soule's script hits plenty of good moments and the time with Obi-Wan and Grecker works well for me. The big draw continues to be the artwork with what Checchetto and Mossa are producing here and I find myself eager to pore over each page more and more when all is said and done as the pair are doing some phenomenal work.

    Soule continues to do wonders for Anakin as he explores a young man in a state of psychological flux and receiving guidance from the absolute worst possible mentor. The interaction between Anakin and Palpatine is both enlightening and more than a little chilling in the context of what comes later. Read Full Review

    It looks better than it reads, which has it being very similar to the prequels. Decent, but nothing to make one race to read it. Fans will enjoy much more than the casual comic reader. Read Full Review

    The Anakin and Palpatine stuff is still the best part of this book by far. I wish we would get little information into Obi Wan as well considering this is a shared series. Obi Wan gets a lot of the attention this time but the story isn't as interesting as the last one outside of a great few frames with Anakin and Palpatine.

    The art gets a little over indulgent, but boy does it look gorgeous. The plot is still going well, there is plenty of backstabbing to keep you on your toes, you just can't trust anyone on this miserable planet.

    The plot and secondary cast is beginning to show signs of promise. As usual, great art from Checchetto and Soule gives us an illuminating script. The only issue I have here is that I'm worried the final resolution to this series will be rushed, as we've not had the real conflict rear its head. When it does, what can possibly stop the violence, if anything? The political structures are beginning to make more sense, though I think a single scavenger, Sera, is too small an influence to be felt profoundly in both Open and Closed camps.
