So.

I had written a lengthy review of this comic the day it came out, but I guess it didn’t post for some reason.

Anyway, I don’t have the energy to type all of my thoughts again because the past 19 days since The Rise of Skywalker have felt like 19 horribly long years. There’s been plenty of discourse and character analysis regarding Ben Solo on Twitter and Tumblr for years (and tons more post-TROS), if you’re interested in that sort of thing.

Given the ultimate fate of Ben Solo, this comic

First of a Series that Should've Been a Book

This is the first of a long awaited story of how Ben Solo fell to the Dark Side and became Kylo Ren. This kind of story should have been an adult novel similar to Darth Plagueis or Path of Destruction (the rise of Darth Bane) and written by James Luceno, Paul S Kemp or Drew Karpyshyn. The comic should've come after the book, not before. That being said, this first edition doesn't say much, beginning at the burning of Luke Skywalker's Jedi Training

since the tragic end of Ben solo in TROS and I want more of him. I'm afraid this series will make me angrier about what happened to him, whatever he had been through it will not justify the ending.
I think this series will make us look at him as he is, a boy.

I'm reading this series to fill-in some of the narrative gaps about Ben Solo / Kylo Ren from the movies. This one begins with Ben using the Force to destroy the residence huts outside his uncle Luke's Jedi Temple. (A different conclusion is reached about the destruction of the Temple itself, which I found surprising, but I won't spoil anything here.)

The narrative arcs of Ben, Luke, and Snoke are all very compelling, which is why I picked-up this comic to begin with. However, this issue focuses

3.5/5 Stars: Ben Solo was always the most interesting character of the new trilogy for me, and I've always wanted more of his backstory. It would have been great to include this in the movies, but I guess I can settle for comic form
This was a pretty cool look into what happened with Ben that night at the Jedi Temple. I'm definitely looking forward for the next issues!

Am I missing something? Because I wasn't super impressed with this first issue. It drops you right in the middle of things without much context. I really think that this story should have been a novel, because I don't know these new padawans that well and have no idea how Snoke and Kylo got in contact before this. We see a bit more of Snoke with long brown hair and some sort of garden, but I still don't know what the heck is going on with him. The destruction of the temple seems to suggest a ...more

As I sit and type this, at work, I am wearing my work badge...that is dangling from a Kylo Ren lanyard...so yea...Ben Solo is obvs one of my top intergalactic guys

Plus The Knights Of Ren are just super cool and we absolutely did not get enough of them!

Needless to say, I am thrilled with this story. I am always ready for anything in the way of Kylo's backstory that they wanna throw my way. Give it all to me. I need it. I want more!

I'm very intrigued by what we got, so far, with this story. My

WHY oh WHY do I love Kylo Ren so much?

This issue was a great beginning, but didn't reveal anything beyond what we already knew. I'm looking forward to learning more about this beloved character

An goog and unexpected opening to Kylo's origins

So I am her much satisfied and I enjoyed this first part of the story bit seems to set things albeit out if order. And I love this style if story telling method in all honesty And I hope to see the Knights of re N connected to the " Vader lives children cult'" from the after math interludes.

Darkness rises

After all this time, we finally get to see the origin story of Kylo Ren. In addition, we get to see more of Supreme Leader Snoke's background and his relationship with Ben Solo. Also, we get to have a deeper understanding of the Knights of Ren such as who they are and what their dark side ideology is. I am already eager for the next chapter.

A nice "fill in the gap" for Kylo Ren

I've always been a fan of Kylo Ren's character, so I was excited to get started on this series once it came out. Issue 1 did not disappoint, definitely a great in depth look at how Ben started to turn.

Interesting

Can’t wait for more, curious about Snoke. How he was already involved with Ben, but doesn’t appear to be Supreme Leader yet.

It is a start

Great start to explain about Kylo and the knights!
I hope it will continue this great until the end of this story.

A good starting point

I’m resigned to the idea that the mainline movies will never be able to cover everything so I’m just thankful we have this.

Does the artist know how to draw a teenage boy? No. But it is Star Wars, and how could I not read it.

We finally get a look in what made Ben Solo turn into Kylo Ren. The beginning of the end...once again. From Anakin to Ben. Here we go again. Looking to see more of Luke as well.

Gorgeous and beautifully written. My only conceen is that four issues won't be enough to tell the story.
