I am loving that Yoda is a prominent figure in this series. I am always down for more Yoda. Aside from Yoda, this series is wonderfully fresh. We are being given a whole new outlook on what the galaxy was like before we come to the Skywalker saga. Don’t get me wrong. I Love Luke and all of them, but I have ALWAYS wondered what life was like before all of them. This is why I fell in love in SWTOR (online game). Everyone involved with this series is doing an amazing job at creating new characters that are original and that I know people will cherish.

With our two main characters Zeen and Krix, we start to see Krix taking a turn. The way this is all being written it keeps you guessing whether Krix is working for or against the Nihil. I am constantly on the edge of my seat because Older gives NOTHING away. Usually with comics you can tell which way the story is going to go, but with this series so far I have NO IDEA. And that stems from wonderful writing. Older still gives comparisons between the two like he did in the previous issue. You can see how Krix gets treats vs. to how Zeen does.

In this issue we starting to get into the fighting. I love Star Wars fighting! I know it is barely issue 4 so we won’t get the ultimate fight just yet, but this space one we got was pretty awesome. I LOVE SPACE BATTLES! This issue gives us a fantastic one at that! The artwork on those pages were wonderful! It truly brings this comic series to life. I can pretty much see the pictures popping off the pages. You truly feel immersed in this world and I love it.

Like I said before, the artwork in every issue is on point. Tolibao and Nalty are an amazing duo. In the opening of this issue Lula and Zeen are in this beautiful mountain area and it is so beautiful that I would want this as an art piece in my house. The two Jedi are meditating and it honeslty made me want to meditate 🤣 The colors and the drawing really do make you feel at peace.

We have been given another wonderful issue. If you have not yet started to read these series you really should. It will not disappoint.

🔴 Spoiler Spew 🔴

A true test of loyalty faces two young friends. Marchion Ro has offered Krix Kamerat power and control. Master Yoda and the Jedi have offered force sensitive Zeen Mrala safety and a home. But in order to obtain these, they both must give up the only thing that has ever brought them peace. Each other. . . 

Republic outpost, Oro Mantell. Lula is teaching Zeen how to feel the force when all of a sudden they hear sirens. The other Jedi think the Nihil are on their way. So some start to take off on their ships.

Quantxi, The Junk Moon. The Nihil’s diversion for the Jedi is working. On the Moon Krix is given a blaster so he can shoot anyone who stands in their way. Krix actually does go after someone and then shoots at them. But he misses. Krix then sends out a message to Zeen asking her to meet him at the Junk Moon so they can run away together.

Yoda and the rest of the Jedi beat the Nihil in their space battle pretty easily. Which gives Yoda an unsettling feeling. At the same time he feels this, Lula cannot find Zeen. Lula and the rest of the padawan’s squeeze in a ship to go help Zeen. Yoda again senses something wrong and they get a distress call from The Junk Moon. So they start to head out that way.
