VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy

(A/CA) Salvador Larroca
Vader takes on Cylo and his cybernetic operatives.
The Executor moves closer to completion in time for its launch.
Meanwhile - the murderbots take on their 'master'. Rated T

Sometimes, plans are fun. Batman has a plan that works out in 'Master Race' #5. Dr. Aphra has her own plan, and it would have worked if it wasn't for those lousy kids. Those kids take out Tagge, everyone on Vader's super Star Destroyer, and even manage to isolate the Emperor. The kids want the Empire, it seems, and have actually had a long game going while distracting Vader by dying one at a time. These kids? They're the abominations made by Cylo, which I suppose would make them Cylons.
Salvador Larroca's art has a couple of panels that deliberately border on sloppy (by his standards), showing the additional rage of little Annie as his book comes closer to ending. If you ever wanted to see what Darth Vader fighting a Rancor in Sin City would look like, this would be a great issue to pick up. I think it would be fun to have Kieron Gillen do a reading of this when its finished to see if I've been hearing the right voices in my head.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
