Canon Comic Review: Kanan #12

Kanan #12

Spoiler Review –

Here we are folks, the end the Kanan comic series is not near, it’s here. Issue #12 brings the continuously excellent series to a close (I named it my favorite series of 2015) and it’s quite a bittersweet ending. On one hand, it’s a wonderfully written wrap-up of various threads from the entire series as well as full of surprising tie-ins to stories elsewhere in canon. On the other hand, this is the last of it. And while there’s always a fear one can have too much of a good thing (as I know I want more of this series), I’d honestly say Kanan #12 ends things at just the right time with about as perfect of an ending as one can get.

Canon Comic Review: Kanan – The Last Padawan #6

Kanan The Last Padawan #6 Epilogue

– Spoiler Review –

Kanan’s first arc, The Last Padawn, is easily the best of the Marvel comics released so far, semi-ending the arc with the excellent, emotional, and well-rounded issue #5: “Release.” Issue #6, subtitled “Epilogue: Haunts,” brings Caleb’s past ordeals back into the forefront of Kanan’s mind, proving itself worthy of the Kanan series name by the time its cliffhanger of an ending drops.
