    Marc Guggenheim does a solid job of wrapping this story up and gives us a nice bit of insight into a conversation that Yoda had with Obi-Wan Kenobi before Yoda started to train Luke. Yoda had been blaming himself for the birth of the Empire due to the fact that he had not spotted Palpatine’s corruption or Anakin’s journey into the dark side of the force. This is a conversation, which I think we’ll likely see get continued somewhat in the next issue and I can’t wait to read it.

    The Fandom Post

    The Yoda series has been a lot of fun overall as it’s managed to be kind of low-stakes but has fit in well with the big-picture events going on. The framing elements have not been my favorite overall but it looks like it’s set up to go into the finale well so that we understand more of how Yoda came to get involved, even lightly and begrudgingly, when it comes to Luke. This issue wraps things up well with the Megadroid and it’s got some good action and another moment that helps to cement Anakin as an ace of a starfighter pilot. It’s well-written with enjoyable dialogue and interplay between the two and Miracolo’s artwork, as always, just delights with the expressions and layouts.

    The Story: Guggenheim uses an action filled story to tell an interesting emotional tale for Yoda. The characters interactions with Anakin are great and the action is thrilling throughout. The pacing is a little fast making the story less immersive than I hoped. I really enjoyed the buildup of the moment Yoda confronts the voice speaking to him through the force and what it means for his story going forward.

    The Art: Miracolo delivers some great art in the issue. The visual style works well for the action and does a really good job of showcasing the tension.

    Yoda and Anakin’s collision with a megadroid comes to a conclusion, forcing both heroes to face challenges they weren’t expecting, as the balance of power and control shifts for the Force. Star Wars: Yoda continues to be consistently entertaining and insightful, never feeling like it’s arbitrarily trying to expand upon the events of the original trilogy and instead only adding on to them, which ultimately makes for a richer experience in retrospect. What we’re learning about Yoda is, despite being shown to be so powerful and skilled in the ways of the Force, has just as many weaknesses as other Jedi, while the final pages of the book tease there we could be ending with some powerful revelations about the beloved character. With only one issue to go, we have high hopes that the ending will send the series off in a fulfilling way, making for one of the most consistent runs the Star Wars comics have had with Marvel.

    SWNN - Star Wars News Net

    The best part of Star Wars: Yoda issue #8 was its focus on the relationship between Anakin and Yoda. I’m happy to say that the same can be said here with Yoda issue #9. As the series starts to come to a close, writer Marc Guggenheim and artist Alessandro Miracolo wrap up their Clone Wars story arc, again focusing on the relationship between Yoda and Anakin and the lessons they teach one another. However, aside from the dialogue between the two and a reveal at the end, the issue doesn’t offer a lot else, as its plot is pretty predictable.
