    There are an incredible number of interesting characters brought together in this single issue. The Art by Ario Anindito is exciting with great new character designs and constant movement and action. This book promises to dive a bit more into the mythology behind the Whills and Force and the mysteries of how the Force can be manipulated. It will be incredible to see how all of this unfolds over the months to come as phase 2 attempts to declare itself as an expansive new era of Jedi storytelling. Read Full Review
