    Future of the Force

    I loved the dynamic between these two unlikely beings. The art of the ice was glorious and enchanting and made me feel as if I were in the ice caverns myself. The story also paced incredibly well, and the bore worms did not….bore me. As far as the giant monsters cliche trope goes, they were an interesting specimen. How Mace dealt with them was nothing short of incredible.

    I also retract my distaste for making Azita black just to be the same as Mace. There is clearly a bigger connection between the two that I did not see coming. In hindsight, I should have seen it, but the revelation does have racist connotations of its own, but be that what you will. Star Wars always did play fast and loose with race parallels.

    I am excited to see how this tale ends, and my faith in Windu is being restored gradually.

    This issue is a light and easy read. It is perfect if you are looking to escape from the real world and go to a faraway galaxy. It captures the Star Wars spirit and simultaneously brings up real issues with the characters within this expansive universe.

    SWNN - Star Wars News Net

    Nitpicks aside the comic is still a fun adventure that’s worth picking up. There are a lot of cool and heroic moments where the character shines. And there are also new insights into the character that adds to Mace Windu’s appeal. Although, this is a short series, so let’s hope that Marc Bernardin and Georges Jeanty can stick the landing in the next few installments.

    The Fandom Post

    I’m not sure where I stand when it comes to this series at this point. Everything is competently done with solid artwork and scripting while being placed against an interesting concept. We get some disturbing elements, such as Azita talking about what she did to the guy behind the formula, but it also feels like a very safe book overall that’s not doing anything challenging. I know there’s some intent of creating a kind of semi-romantic tension of sorts here because we’d see this in every other story but there being none of it just creates an even odder feeling. It’s hitting the right marks to move along but it’s lacking a certain rhythm to make it feel alive and engaging.

    On his mission to protect Azita Cruuz, Mace Windu finds himself traveling deep within a desolate planet and finding unexpected adversaries, first in the form of massive worms, and then in the form of people who also aim to retrieve Azita. The standout element of this issue is the artwork by Georges Jeanty, inker Dexter Vines, and colorist Andrew Dalhouse. We’ve seen countless arid climates in the galaxy far, far away, but by spelunking deep into icy caverns, we get to witness a new color palette that allows Mace and Azita to remain the focal point of each panel. The actual narrative didn’t accomplish much in the realm of making for a more thrilling story, but with the previous issue being a bit more effective, we look forward to future chapters delivering a more satisfying narrative trajectory as opposed to dumping exposition.
