Excerpt from the review:
The issue picks up right where #1 left us, a subterranean corridor with only Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, accompanied by their ignited lightsabers. Despite whatever undercutting this may do to the gravity and general assumption that their first face to face encounter was in ESB, I feel the writers and artists are handling it great.
Luke’s face exudes a healthy amount of terror, but this is a different Luke Skywalker than the one we knew before. He’s fearless and when the option of running or facing the Dark Lord of the Sith is out before him, he chooses the latter. It’s nothing short of bold, but I like how the writers underscore that ignorance plays a part in it, because as soon as Vader simply takes the lightsaber out of Luke’s hand using the Force, you can tell Luke realizes he’s in over his head.
