Be Warned! Possible Spoilers ahead!
First of all I will recap #1 for you, and for those that don’t know I will quickly summarise who Kanan is.
The adult Kanan can be found in 'Star wars Rebels' on Disney XD at the moment and also in the book 'A New Dawn' tells more about how the crew of the 'Ghost' came to be. But the comics so far focus on Kanan as a youngling or as he was known back then 'Caleb Dume' when he was a Padawan learner within the Jedi Order and mentored by his Jedi Master, 'Depa Billaba'. The Empire has just taken an iron grip on the Galaxy....
Just a quick recap of the first comic of the series. Caleb is fighting in 'The Clone Wars' alongside his Master and their Clone Troopers. After a battle they take refuge in a cave along with 2 Clones. All seems well, Caleb feels he has found his place in the Galaxy and Master Billaba gives the Padawan a Jedi Holocron....
I'm new to comics so will be offering a layman's perspective if you will, and I have only just collected the new Marvel Star Wars. Everyone was raving about #1 in this arc but it did not grab me that much to be honest, but this issue was a lot better for me with much more going on story wise and I liked the way it tied in with what we know from the time 'order 66' was issued from Kanan's perspective. It starts where the last one left off....always useful, when the order is given all hell breaks loose and Kanan runs for his life. The story is very well told and art is great, i like the mix of first person perspective from Kanan. There's a nod in there to 'Rebels' with mention of a 'Meiloorun' fruit, which was a focus in one of the episodes, and quite a comical comment about a trooper losing his head in more ways than one! So without giving too much away this is when Caleb has to grow up and fend for himself, whist initially being hunted down by those he considered comrades moments before. looking forward to the next one as It gets interesting when he receives a message from a certain Jedi master....
