    But Why Tho? - Adrian Ruiz Dec 15, 2021

    Scott has this new arc off to a stellar start. Slowing the pace down has allowed the tension to build in the "Jedi's End" arc. The seeds of something more dangerous than the Drengir or Nihil have been planted and I worry for the future of great Jedi like Avar Kriss. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 3, 2022

    An installment like this in the series is more of what we need. I like the big action pieces and some of the crazier things but we need to know these characters better and without having the novels to back up and inform us. This issue lets us just deal with pretty much dialogue-driven material so that we understand who the characters are more and more and what's driving and motivating them. It does the heavy lifting of making us understand why they're acting like they are and the reason for the intensity. I'm definitely curious to see more of the politics of the High Republic era but I'm also interested to see how far things will go with Avar here as she's the one that's definitely playing reckless these days, understandably so.

    While there is not a lot of action in this one there is more of the back story for these characters if you have been following this story. As such I would have trouble recommending this one unless you have already been following it. If you really must there are references you can look up but I am not a fan of having to do homework before I can read something. Read Full Review
