    There's a lot going on here that's moving too fast to be told as well as it should. Plouth and what he's doing here is clearly a gish gallop kind of plan being put into motion so it mostly works for him, but if you go into what he presents as an honest debate it's going to just be a disaster. The Convocation doesn't do itself any favors here in how it's dealing with so many things and it just points to institutional decay and failure, which is all well and fine to contend with. Pluth and the Open Path have their own approach, however, but we don't know their actual goals just yet. It's a decent book in what it's trying to present and I get it but it just feels too forced at times. Broccardo's artwork is always great and they've got a strong handle on this world and material that it just feels like it's effortless. I'm excited to see more of their time in this place and property. Read Full Review

    Now that The Convocation is in full chaotic swing, its impossible to know what will happen next. A large assembly of Force users gathered in one place might be too tempting to pass up if one were to desire a galaxy with less Forces users in it. Read Full Review

    This chapter specifically highlights the all-too-common political tactics we see exploited in the modern world and how those can be far more dangerous than brute force, leaving us much more excited for what's around the corner in this series than we were at the end of the last issue.
