By Jason Aaron, Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca et al.
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

epic, bombastic and mad [...] an epic showdown, we got rid of some of the weaker characters, while others are set on new and unknown paths [...] a delight to witness Vader rather effortlessly slaughtering his way through the story [...] it works [...] truly fun...read full review

Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

truly loved this book [...] best depiction of Vader outside of the movies [...] first half of this book is pretty much perfect [...] second half is still great but curious [...] relationships shared between Vader and others is interesting yet surprisingly civil, almost casual [...] dialogue and the art are an awesome constant [...] curious how this story will progress...read full review

really liked it, although it was your standard thief’s story [...] a fun ride up to the last issue [...] characters were mostly spot on [...] unused potential of the McGuffin [...] unimaginative plot device...read full review

pales next to the amazing Tales of the Jedi [...] Neither the art is worth of noting, nor is the plot [...] If you have to actually pay for it… skip it. Do not bother...read full review

[ Skywalker Strikes ] [] Skywalker Strikes
By Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, Laura Martin, Chris Eliopoulos et al.
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

the book is a delight [...] story draws you immediately in and won’t let go till the very end [...] only problem with this book is that this one is a bit too full of special events and over the top successes [...] Luke encounters and manages to survive not one, but TWO of this time periods biggest baddies [...] second encounter could really have waited a few more issues [...] very divisive is the reveal of the identity of one dark skinned female at the end [...] so much better than that Brian Wood series...read full review

[ Heir to the Jedi ] [] Heir to the Jedi
By Kevin Hearne
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

not as bad as its reputation [...] at best a very mediocre book [...] it's first short coming is the obvious first person narration [...] only managed to drag me out of the experience and never for once did I feel like I actually was inside the head and thoughts of Luke [...] I was hoping for some twist, or plot development that would require such a narrative, justify it [...] we get to know how our narrator deals with being untrained in the force... and to some degree... girls...read full review

[ Journey to The Force Awakens: Smuggler's Run ] [] Smuggler's Run
By Greg Rucka
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

this one was fun, definitely more fun than that almost awful Princess Leia comic book [...] amazed how perfectly Rucka captures the classic heroes [...] perfectly aligns with the fun of Episode IV [...] also mixes in some of the darkness that was in the recent Rogue One movie [...] a short, fun and worthy read...read full review

[Chewbacca] [] Chewbacca
By Gerry Duggan, Phil Noto et al.
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

nothing mind blowing... just another story of an rather coincidental and unintentional hero, who actually was trying to be a hero somewhere else. I liked the energy between the mains, but it reminded me too much of the chemistry between Chweie and Han. The story is so stand alone, that it would not conflict with either the old or the new canon. The art is actually quite good and the way the dialogue is presented is also very true to the big screen...read full review

Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

a rather dull affair [...] subject matter is an intriguing one [...] book itself fails to capture the character of its main protagonist [...] princess' dialogue and behavior is mostly out of character [...] characters seldom properly recreating the corresponding actors [...] utterly forgettable...read full review

[Catalyst] [] Catalyst
By James Luceno
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

book was not very exiting, at least the first half [...] book simplifies the plot essentially down to 3 people and some guest appearances [...] I still love Luceno's writing, I just don't seem to enjoy his subjects so much as before [...] book is a worthy read, but not in expensive hard cover...read full review

[Servants of the Empire] [] Servants of the Empire series
By Jason Fry
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

#1: Edge of the Galaxy:
a fantastic job at showing how our youngsters uncover the truth behind the imperial propaganda and how oppressive and evil this new tyranny truly is
[...] more impressive than the sadistic actions of over the top villain Count Vidian from the "A New Dawn" book.....read full review

#2: Rebel in the Ranks:
the writing is engaging, the story is interesting and I am still very eager to see young Zare in action...read full review

#3: Imperial Justice:
covers dark ground and shows how much dirt you get on your self trying to fight the empire in secret
[...] Can one fight evil from within and not be tainted with it? [...] Heavy stuff for a children's book...read full review

#4: The Secret Academy:
WOW... Did I just witness the origin of the First order? [...] Fry has it really down to write exciting stuff [...] cannot find much to criticize [...] A true must read...read full review
