What I thought of...Star Wars: Kanan The Last Padawan #1
The Good: You don't have to be a Star Wars expert to enjoy this book. You don't even have to have seen one episode of Star Wars Rebels(but you should, it's a really good show)! This comic, which is written by one of the most acclaimed animation writers ever, Greg Weisman, and illustrated by Pepe Larraz, tells the story of Kanan when he was a young Jedi fighting in the Clone Wars and being trained by his Jedi Master Depa Billaba. Weisman puts together an awesome first issue which is both a fist chapter and a self contained adventure. If the Clone Wars cartoon were more like this comic, I'd have enjoyed it a lot more.
The Bad: Honestly? The only bad thing about this issue is that it takes place during the Prequel era. I would've much rather had a Rebels comic.
The Verdict: BUY IT!!! It's very accessible, well crafted, and a ton of fun to read!!!
