I love that we get to see Luke train to become the Jedi he is meant to be. He does two hard days of training and honestly, who could blame him. If I were the last Jedi I would be training day and night.
Worley does a wonderful job at telling the story of Luke’s training. He gives us an inside look into Luke and how he becomes connected to the Force. He also shows us the struggle Luke has within him and he shows us how he tries to overcome the obstacles within.
Coleman and O’Halloran do such a wonderful at bringing this comic to life. The drawing was awesome. I love that Luke did not look EXACTLY like Mark Hamill. Coleman brought his own flavor to this beloved character and I am all in for that. When we see the ruins of Eedit my heart sank. I felt the true loss that happened here. Even though the color palette throughout this issue is simple, it still gives a great effect. You know, sometimes less is more, and that certainly is the case here. We want to focus more on Luke training and O’Halloran truly delivered on that front.
This was such a fun issue to read because we see the beginning of Luke becoming a Jedi Master.
