THIS NEW SERIES IS GOOD!
It picks up the moment that Anakin Skywalker awakes in his armor at the end of Revenge of the Sith. It chronicles the first steps of Darth Vader.
We learn something new about the Sith. They do not create their own lightsabers. They must take a saber from a Jedi and make it their own.
The Sith blades are red and only red.
Palpatine explains that the kyber crystals that power the sabers are living things within the Force. This is backed up by the Rogue One novel (it was either that or Catalyst). The crystals are rock, but they are also alive.
In the hands of a Sith, the new owner uses the Dark Side to push all his pain into the crystal--until the crystal bleeds and turns the color of the beam red.
I just think that is all sorts of awesome!
The art is excellent.
With the loss of Brian Michael Bendis and Marvel's inability to recruit new writing talent, the Star Wars comics are now the cornerstone for the company. As a result, Marvel is going to continue to pump out Star Wars titles. This one is good; many of the others, not so much.
It introduced two ideas I hope become cannon;
One is a Jedi cow of exile...great for providing future tales of Jedi during the Empire, and the logical idea that the former Anakin would customize his suit and prosthetics.
