Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

"I always disliked it when the expanded universe, this one or the old one, tried to be more epic and more relevant than the movies themselves. Aaron's run on the Star Wars issues was a great example of that, but at least he made it exiting and fun, while really nailing the protagonists most of the time. Gillen's Darth Vader on the other hand was mostly spot on. I did find the Emperor's fist gang to be a rather laughable bunch, but besides that, the Darth Vader run was much more in line with the movies. Now we arrive at the convergence of both and of course this must be epic, bombastic and mad.
And it is.
And it works.
And it is truly fun.
Aaron's craziness is much more justified in this “Vader versus everyone” scenario and it is a delight to witness Vader rather effortlessly slaughtering his way through the story. Everyone else has to put a lot more effort into surviving.
The art is for the most part spectacular with some of our beloved heroes, although similar, somehow uncanny, as if painted from a picture, but not really spot on. Besides that we get an epic showdown, we got rid of some of the weaker characters, while others are set on new and unknown paths."

Rating: 4 / 5
