    Its a bit tropey with the overly keen padawan character but otherwise it was fun

    The art could be a bit better, but I like that we're following a new Jedi character in the Republic era. There is a Jedi Council scene where we see Yoda, Mace Windu, Yarael Poof, Eeth Koth, Jocasta Nu, and Poli Dapatian. This seems to be set sometime before Master & Apprentice since, in that novel, Dapatian stated that he was set to retire from the Jedi Council. Given some info from that novel, it's possible that Saesee Tiin, Depa Billaba, and possibly Yaddle may be on the Jedi Council as The art could be a bit better, but I like that we're following a new Jedi character in the Republic era.

But anyway, I'm interested in seeing the connection that this story will end up having with the upcoming game Jedi: Fallen Order.

    Not a bad start at all. I was not expecting that. I liked that part of the story links to parts of the SW universe that we know already, yet they are there merely for context, and the main characters really take their rightful place in the narrative.

    An interesting start to a new series, I especially liked the timeframe it’s set in.

The story starts out with an Inquistor during the Age of the Empire arriving to hunt down a Jedi for before cutting back to the Prequel-era, where we meet a Jedi Master makes Cordova and a Padawan makes Cere. Cere is incredibly impulsive, quick to anger, and rushes off purely on instinct and seems unable to connect to the Force in the way Master Cordova wants her to. In a way, I feel like she could potentially be the masked Inquisitor we see at the beginning of the comic since their identity has yet to be revealed, and I’m interested to see how this story plays out. In the past, the Jedi are sent to help negotiations with a newly discovered Temple on a planet but are attacked, with Master Cordova caught in the explosion and possibly alive while Cere is knocked out and taken. It’s an interesting intro comic, but nothing too interesting or engaging here. Still, I’m excited to see where this goes nonetheless since it’s a 5-issue miniseries.

    Decent character introduction. We get a feel for the characters, (even though as others have pointed out, that it's the same old impulsive instincts padawan personality again.) I also agree with what I saw someone mention on a different site, that the setting logic is a bit weird and doesn't make much sense.

    Not a huge fan of the 'overly-impulsive Jedi Padawan' trope (it's been done), but overall the story seems solid, if not yet remarkable.
