really liked it

This was a solid conclusion to this series.

This was one of those "Star Wars gets weird" stories that can often have elements I dislike in it, but I thought most everything worked here. Momin's character and backstory were cool, and I would love to see more about him, but I wasn't crazy about him coming back to life through the helmet stuff. What made this volume great was the artistic interpretations of Anakin/Vader's inner psyche as he continues his transformation and ultimately realizes that Padme is gone for good...and so is Anakin. The final issue, where we see the fiery-lava-force-specter-representation of Anakin/Vader wander through his past, hearing the voices of those that used to be close to him, that was powerful stuff. Kudos to Soule and the art team for making me feel emotions tied to the "Now this is podracing!" and "Are you an angel?" lines. And ending with Kylo Ren's "Let the past die" quote? *chef's kiss*
