    “I never... I didn’t want this.”Ben, I am so, so sorry. Reading about people assuming the worst from him from the very beginning truly breaks my heart, he was so alone. That aside, I really like the art so far and I’m so glad we’re learning more about the Knights of Ren, I really need more answers!! I can’t wait for the next issue. “I never...

    This might be my favourite comic of the new canon so far. It gives more explanation than The Rise of Skywalker does and shows that Ben Solo, was in fact, good at heart. Somehow he just stumbled from one mess into the next. Charles Soule and Will Sliney really exceeded my expectation with this one and although TROS ruined my hype a bit, I look forward to issue #2.

    We are finally getting some backstory on the fall of Ben Solo and as the title says the rise of Kylo Ren. As Luke said in The Last Jedi, "This is not going to go the way you think" and that is so true here. Writer Charles Soule has done an excellent job of subverting what we the fans thought we knew happened to Luke, Ben, and the Jedi Academy.This is the beginnings of a story of how the manipulation and corruption of the mind is the real downfall of Ben Solo.Also we learn more about the Knights We are finally getting some backstory on the fall of Ben Solo and as the title says the rise of Kylo Ren.

Being able to touch The Shadow and the worship of The Ren.This is great material. I think this is a must read before going to see The Rise of Skywalker as it informs us so much on the character of Kylo Ren and where his head is at.Cannot wait for the next issue.

    As expected, this book shines a light on the darker aspects of the new trilogy... on several levels. Learning more about the more cryptic elements (specifically regarding the mysterious antagonists) of Episodes VII-IX is incredibly welcome. The destruction of Luke’s temple, the Knights of Ren, and Snoke shown as we’ve never seen him before... what a blockbuster start to what I’m certain will be a fascinating yarn of those who touch the shadow in a galaxy far, far away.

    The creators say this issue will enhance the experience watching ‘The Rise of Skywalker.’ This explains so much about Ben Solo as he becomes Kylo Ren, and adds more to what we learned in ‘The Last Jedi.’ I look forward to seeing ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ and the next issues in this mini comic series, ‘The Rise of Kylo Ren.’
