🟒 Non Spoiler Spew 🟒

Here is another entertaining issue! This one was a bit more fast paced than others. Once I finished it I had to go back so I could truly appreciate the artwork. I am continuously amazed at the artwork and storytelling. Especially because we are getting a story that has nothing to do with the stories we are already familiar with. Everyone is doing a stellar job.


This issue was actually pretty intense and full of action. We are getting more story with Sskeer and is Padawan Keeve and I am here for it. Not only was this issue full of action, but it was also a pretty emotional one. Especially for Sskeer and Keeve. The writing that Scott does is so believable and I am always on the edge of my seat. I never realize I am at the end until I am turning the last page.


Like everything else, the artwork is outstanding. This issue was my favorite issue visually. The details are amazing. After I read the issue I HAD to go back and look at every panel. Every panel is amazing. Everyone involved you can tell truly took their time and poured their heart and soul into it. The way everything is put together you can truly feel the emotions every character is going through.

πŸ”΄ Summary Spoiler Spew πŸ”΄

Planet Sedri Minor

From the Hutt Cartel, Myarga The Benevolent shows up and starts to talk to Kriss. Telling her that her and the Jedi need to leave this planet because the people signed a contract with the Hutts. Sskeer is frustrated at the negotiations so he attacks Myarga. Many mercenaries come off of Myarga’s ship and start shooting at the Jedi. Kriss calls for help from Starlight Beacon, but they are dealing with a Drengir infestation.

Part of the Drengir still has a hold on Sskeer and he starts to fight with his Padawan, Keeve. She tells him to fight it but he does not want to anymore. He says the Force is fading away in him. Sskeer says in order to beat the Drengir, Keeve needs to go into his mind and convince the Drengir everyone they are fighting is “bad meat” and they should not control them. Keeve succeeds, but Sskeer is passed out. Looks like he is dead.
