Released this week:
Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren #3
The true descent begins for Ben Solo as we see the path get even darker as he gets closer and closer to becoming Kylo Ren. Ben meets the Knights of Ren for the second time, looking to join and find guidance. One problem, The Knights of Ren require a death as the price of joining. However, Ben recounts the confrontation with his fellow Jedi, as he’s already paid that price.
Charles Soule continues to challenge everything we assumed from the films about Ben Solo and his becoming Kylo Ren. This continues to be such a revelatory story seeped in sadness as we know where it ends. Sliney’s artwork and Guru-eFX’s coloring is exemplary as well, especially in this issues flashback scenes which are so vibrant and peaceful in contrast to the rest of the stories dark and battered look. The mini-series continues to be a must read! Full review with spoilers here.
As always, happy reading and may the Force be with you.
