Sylvar is dissatisfied with her blood hunt. She learns that Vima is missing and start out
to find her. Together, Vima and Ulic begin to discover (and rediscover) the ways of the Force.
I'm quite enjoying the characters in this story. Sylvar, the weak link thus
far was greatly improved in her more subtle performance. Vima and Ulic remain
very likable as well. The dialog is light, but fine.
However, I've come to the realization that with only one issue remaining,
nothing is really going to happen in this series. There is virtually no plot
at all. The creators have said all along that it is a character driven story,
but I hadn't quite realized the extent.
I'm not necessarily complaining. I'm a Seinfeld fan, and nothing happened
As with her character, Sylvar is much improved in rendering as well. The
visuals in the blood hunt and aftermath were very entertaining. The Vima
lightsaber training is also very cool. We don't see much of Jedi training with
their sabers in a non-sparing manner, let alone female Jedi.
Despite some fun images, the art feels less deliberate and a little more
rushed, particularly in the last half of the issue. It hasn't maintained the
qualities and subtleties that made me compare it with 'Dark Knight Returns'
back in issue #1. I suspect that tight timetables have caused the quality to
suffer a little.
If you enjoy these characters, you'll enjoy the book... though overall quality
seems to be sliding as the series goes on.
