What an issue!!!
To start off with my only negative(ish) comment on this issue, while it is set before The Force Awakens, its not extremely long before and we don’t learn anything about “Snoke’s origins” or “who Snoke is” so if you were hoping this issue would touch on that you’d likely be disappointed. I knew they wouldn’t do anything that deep in a one shot comic so I was not surprised or disappointed by this fact.
This issue is about Snoke training Kylo Ren in the ways of the Dark Side, and wow is it awesome. I loved everything about this, from Snoke dangling Kylo in the air over a cliff and making him catching himself, then telling him he would demand more from him than Skywalker did, to Kylo destroying the cave on Dagobah and telling Snoke it doesn’t matter because he won’t need anymore apprentices.
Kylo even deceives Snoke, convincing him he killed his parents in his cave vision, when he actually couldn’t bring himself to do it then, showing how much further he’s taken by the time of The Force Awakens when he does kill his father, and foreshadowing The Last Jedi in a good way by showing that Snoke is not nearly as good at reading Kylo’s mind as he thinks he is.
The art in this issue was also solid, which makes any comic twice as enjoyable for me.
10/10 will be reading this comic again.
