SWNN - Star Wars News NetThis issue feels very thin. Pak throws a lot into the kitchen sink, but little of it serves the story. I appreciate the prequel love and the ambition, but less is always more when it comes to Vader, in my opinion. The more action in this issue distracts more from the story, failing to add any tension or intrigue. The art by Guiu Vilanova is great, but ultimately does more heavy lifting for the story than it should. This new contribution to the Crimson Dawn arcs across all Marvel Star Wars titles doesn’t promise a lot of new ground for the dark lord, so we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed that Vader is taken to more interesting places.
