loved every part of it [...] a great book [...] I read it as a companion piece to a complete replay of both games and I believe the book is intended to be read as such [...] you are in for a true treat...read full review

[ Deceived ] [] Deceived
By Paul S. Kemp
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

no means a perfect Star Wars book [...] but it is one hell of a exciting book [...] Kemp surely knows how to write captivating [...] love his action scenes [...] He is so deeply rooted in the now, the present of a situation, that you yourself - while reading it - feel almost present [...] a very good read, especially for those who like this period...read full review

a mixed bag of satisfying and average [...] never liked Cylo and his gang [...] mere two-dimensional vilains with no real power to truly face off against our dark protagonist [...] All in all a good enough read...read full review

a fair comic [...] nice enough story with some twists you see coming [...] idea of Leia, Sana and Aphra teaming up is much more interesting than the actual result [...] does not kow when to stop overdoing things [...] art is top notch [...] story telling is a mixed bag...read full review

[ Vader Down ] [] Vader Down
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

a careful extension of what we know from the movies [...] epic moments and interesting twists [...] could imagine the Vader book to function alongside the movies [...] the one true achievement for Marvel's Star Wars comic books...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

[ 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

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
