    Morales delivers some fantastic art throughout the issue. From the action to the emotional moments, the art is a perfect complement to the story. Read Full Review

    This series was a lot of fun in general because it played things straight and series, focused on adult characters, and dealt with some traditional story ideas that you'd find in feudal era works and slapped some lightsabers on it. That's one of the core elements of Star Wars when you get down to it and mixing it into this part of the High Republic with an outlying disconnected world hits some good notes. I really liked the artwork overall but it all comes down to whether the characters work. And both Barash and Porter deliver separately and together, so I'm hopeful we get more of both of them in the sequel miniseries that's coming. Definitely an easy recommendation for someone wanting the space wizard side of Star Wars without it being a part of the Skywalker saga. Read Full Review

    At it's worst, The Blade has been decent, but at it's best it has been electric. Read Full Review
