Well, this is superb, and as I said in my review of #6, I love that Pak is weaving elements from the Prequel and Sequel trilogies into this series, which sis et during the original trilogy.
But he seems to be taking things a step further here. Not only do we have Ochi of Bestoon, assassin of the Sith, whose body was found by Rey and the gang in The Rise Of Skywalker…but we also have a strange creature from the concept art from…well, I’m pretty sure it’s from Duel Of The Fates, Colin Trevorrow’s original take on Episode IX (the script for which was actually one of the first reviews I posted on GoodReads). Either way, this creature certainly appears in the Art Of Episode IX book.
Star Wars beyond the movies, in my opinion, is often at its best when it’s drawing from the concept art for the series, and I’m looking forward to seeing where Pak’s going here.
