BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy

Another thoroughly entertaining issue from Gillen and Larroca. BT and Triple Zero are as entertaining in execution as they were in premise. If there's a funnier line in comics this week than "HAHAHA. You are on fire and also dead.", I missed it.

The goals of Vader's quest get a little more clear, and so do the odds against him. There's a nice homage to 'Aliens' (and possibly 'Virus', but its a stretch), some prequel validation, and a moment of honesty between Vader and Aphra that sets up her stakes very very bluntly. Combine that with comic stores having copies to sell the week the book comes out, and you've got a winner.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
