They are certain… until they see what awaits them.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: An entertaining and often thrilling story from Soule. I like that things are more complicated for the characters and that we have yet to discover the true motives behind their being called to the planet. It adds a great sense of mystery to the story. I also enjoy seeing the growing connection between Porter and Barash and how it has evolved since their were children. I look forward to seeing where the story is going and what twists it takes along the way. The Art: Castiello and Morales deliver great visuals that are bold, detailed and visually thrilling. The action is fantastic and I love the gritty style of the art and how it enhances the story and its tone.
ComicBook.comAs far as the story being told in the present, we're given an intriguing look at the more mundane—by Jedi standards—duties, even if the story isn't entirely exceptional. What makes the book far more fascinating is the tease between our two heroes and a flashback in which they are slightly defying the decree of the Jedi Order to maintain their connection. Much like how Anakin bent the rules as a Padawan, seeing how easily it is for other figures to go against expectations and explore the grey areas of the Force could lead the book down even more interesting avenues.
Comic CrusadersThe issue is artfully written with a steady patter and flashbacks involving Porter and Barash. They are a great duo who really do work better together than apart. The detailed art is beautiful in most places although the closeups are much more impressive than the siege and battle sequences. This book is a fun, intriguing examination of sibling Jedi who clearly enjoy working together. Ultimately the final fates of both these characters are tragic, but we will enjoy their stories as long as we can.
SWNN - Star Wars News NetOverall, the pacing in this comic was well-crafted, and it moved along nicely. I would have liked a bit more time with the people of Firevale before the impending attack started, but I am sure we will get to know them more soon. I can’t wait for the upcoming showdown between this mercenary leader and Porter Engle. Charles Soule is onto something here!
