My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well, this is really excellent work!

Pak’s writing is fantastic and Ienco’s art is fantastic. But what made this exceptional for me is how well it connects to Queen’s Shadow. Which shouldn’t be surprising considering that was very much Sabe’s book, as much as it was Padme’s, and this comic focuses on Sabe and her search for the truth about Padme’s death.

Although, of course, she knows…or, at least, she thinks she knows who killed Padme…and Anakin…and thereby hangs the twist in this tale.

As much as I wondered what more there was to say about Vader, what new take Pak could possibly have, using this series to explore the fact that…well…it’s Anakin in that black armour, the same guy from the Prequels and the Clone Wars…and just what that really means, is something that I didn’t know I needed, but I’m very glad that Pak’s giving it to us.
