Darth Vader #19Darth Vader‘s mission on Shi-torum comes to a close as the Dark Lord of the Sith is able to fight off the attack of the force-sensitives Morit and Aiolin before returning to the front lines and offering Trios the Imperial support the new queen needs to put down the anti-Imperial rebellion on the planet.

The manner in which Aiolin falls is surprising, although it works as a callback Vader’s lightsaber battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi in Revenge of the Sith. With the battle already halted, and knowing he can’t possibly best Vader on his own, Morit’s actions to sacrifice his sister are perplexing. Whatever his true motivations, I’ve little doubt we will see the him return before too long.

Star Wars #17

in Comics

Star Wars #17After dropping Aphra off at Sunspot Prison, Leia and Stana Starros run into a bit of trouble when a madman with his own droid asassins shows up and takes over the prison determined to exact a far more brutal form of justice on the inmates.

Trapped in with prisoners, Leia and Starros are forced to make hard decisions on what they will need to do to survive and who they are willing to trust in order to do so.

The other storyline is a bit more lighthearted as Luke wrangles up some smuggling business for the Millennium Falcon after Han loses Rebellion credits while gambling. The ship’s captain is not pleased with the deal Luke makes (only half of the 10,000 credits Han expected), nor the cargo (a herd of skittish Nerfs) or how it brings Imperial TIE Fighters after them.

“Once you start down the dark path, forever will you dominate your destiny.”

Star Wars Rebels - Twilight of the Apprentice

Star Wars Rebels follows up one of its weakest episodes with one of its strongest. The series closes out its Second Season with an hour-long episode featuring familiar faces and a reunion we’ve waited for all year long. The episode begins with Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Ezra (Taylor Gray), and Ahsoka (Ashley Eckstein) travelling to the forbidden planet of Malachor in search of answers about the Sith. Temporarily separated from his friends as they hunt a new Inquisitor (Robbie Daymond), Ezra makes a new acquaintance in a former Sith Lord with plenty of anger towards his old masters.
