    With Obi-Wan and Leia surrounded by newfound allies, it ultimately isn't long before Vader, Third Sister Reva, and the Empire track down their location, putting the entire base and all of its Rebels at risk. This chapter in the story, much like the source material, jumps between action-oriented encounters and more dramatic, emotional conversations between characters, with the stark contrast between these tones being what makes this chapter work and also fall short. The artwork in the high-octane encounters, thanks to the intimidating armor of Darth Vader and his stormtroopers, work in the artist's favor, capturing the oppressive and intense tone of the characters in juxtaposition to the earthier settings they find themselves in. Unfortunately, the effective sequences make the dramatic reveals by characters and their contorted expressions all the more unpleasant to witness. Sadly, the tension and drama of these more emotional conversations feel devoid of the necessary emotions as the art still looks like the image is an arbitrarily frozen screenshot of this sequence from the episode of Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi. We only hope that the upcoming final issue finds a more successful balance in tones to send the series off on a higher note.
