Review: Return To Vader's Castle Issue 2

Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader’s Castle #2 (of 5)

In this second story of the series we get a story from a captive at Vader's Castle Lt. Thom Hudd. Tarkin is the focus of this story and it was really wonderful to see aspects of Tarkin from the new canon novel be showcased in this story. The story opens when Tarkin is giving a surprise inspection on an Imperial ship. 

The tour is interrupted by a transport crashing into the Imperial ship and a large monstrous creature emerges and screams for Tarkin. This series gives all the creature feature feels. It also has some echoes of Peter Cushing's  Frankenstein days. Another gorgeously illustrated volume with lots of action and a cameo visit from a Rebellion leader. 

Really loved this issue, a perfect Halloween read.
