Darth Vader #14 comic reviewFollowing the death of an Imperial Envoy on Mon Cala, Governor Tarkin‘s forces under the command of Darth Vader have invaded the planet and laid siege to above-ground cities. When diplomacy fails to halt the invading Imperial forces, the king decides to go to extreme measures and destroy every single surface city on the planet rather than allow them to be taken by the Empire and used as staging areas against the rest of the planet deep below the ocean’s surface.

With the storyline taking place on Mon Cala, we’re given a look at a younger Admiral Ackbar as part of the group responsible for the protection of the planet which should please fans of the character.

Star Wars Rebels - Family Reunion / and Farewell TV review

The two-part finale of Star Wars Rebels wraps us several ongoing storylines while foreshadowing possible new adventures for some of these characters somewhere down the line. In the final two episodes the siege of Lothal will come to an end, Ezra (Taylor Gray) will be tempted one last time by the Dark Side before firmly choosing the path that Kanan and his friends helped pave for him. Turning himself over to Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) to save the civilians of Lothal, Ezra buys time for the rest of the team to get control of the Imperial Dome and complete their mission. It’s an action-packed finale that, like several episodes of the series, features creatures connected to the Force playing an important role as Ezra calls on the Purrgil to help rid Lothal of Thrawn.

Star Wars Rebels - A Fool's Hope television review

With Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) on Coruscant updating the Emperor on the Outer Rim, Ezra (Taylor Gray) comes up with a risky plan to strike and retake Lothal from the Empire. With a little misdirection and the help of several old friends, and the Loth-Wolves, the Rebels eek out a narrow victory from the edge of defeat as the show moves one-step closer to the series finale. There are plenty of familiar faces here including Hondo (Jim Cummings), the clones, Vizago (Keith Szarabajka), Mart, and Kallus (David Oyelowo). As the series inches ever closer to the end it appears the battle for Lothal is just beginning.

Darth Vader #12 comic reviewReturning from a missing to kill a Jedi where the Dark Lord of the Sith was ambushed by mercenaries, another attempt is made on Darth Vader‘s life when someone blocks his ship’s communications and causes the Coruscant defense to shoot down Vader and Ninth Sister. Someone obviously very high up in the Empire wants Vader dead.

Although we don’t get names for the collaborators, they are certainly not Rebels. It seems there’s a faction in the Imperial aristocracy that has taken issue with the Emperor bestowing such trust and power to a complete unknown.
