Kanan – The Last Padawan #5
Caleb has been captured by Clone Troopers, Grey and Styles! Can he turn his back on his Jedi training completely? The final chapter of the secret origin of Star Wars Rebels’ Kanan Jarrus!
I thought that this was a mini-series, but no, according to the final page of this issue, we have more to see from Kanan. I’m please to see this, as it gives us a different look at the galaxy from a set of characters who I enjoy. This issue completes the arc – set after the events of Revenge Of The Sith and Order 66 with Kanan finally caught by the Clone Troopers who have been hunting him. You know he gets out (how else would we have Star Wars: Rebels?) but the manner of it happening is very interesting, and neat!

Luke continues his quest to learn about the Jedi…heading for the Jedi Temple on Coruscant? Plus, Han and Leia are confronted by an unexpected foe! New series artist Stuart Immonen joins the rebellion!
After last issues break with Obi-Wan Kenobi, we see what’s up with Han & Leia and Han’s ‘wife’ Things are tense to say the least, and that’s not because of the Imperials hunting them. Everyone in this scene is very true to their character, as Han tries to explain, Leia doesn’t listen and Han’s ‘wife’ is very insistant – does Han have a type? It looks like it!
Meanwhile Luke decides to look for more answers of the Jedi, making a very dangerous choice and a very dangerous trip as he discovers a new problem….
