Marvel has one new Star Wars title out today.

The Rise of Kylo Ren #2 (OF 4)

Writer: Charles Soule
Artist: Will Sliney
Cover Artist: Clayton Crain
Variant Cover: Jodie Muir

SNOKE SINKS HIS CLAWS IN! YOUNG BEN SOLO FACES THE KNIGHTS OF REN! With the new jedi school in ruins and fellow students hot on his trail for the murder of their master, Ben Solo flees to the only friend he has left in the galaxy…a man named Snoke. But Snoke has plans for Ben…and ideas about the Force that are as dangerous as they are intriguing for the troubled young jedi. If Ben wishes to be truly free…the answers might lie with the dark side. And with the Knights of Ren! But it won’t be the first time he’s tangled with the Knights. In the past, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker journeys to the Unknown Regions and brings young Ben along for the mission. Can even Luke Skywalker stand against the fabled Knights of Ren?!

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Spoiler Free Review

I liked it. Seriously, I can think of no better way to summarize it than that. Somehow I managed to stay spoiler free, kept my expectations low by cutting myself off from all the extra trailers and TV spots, went in, and enjoyed it. It was great. Was it the best Star Wars movie ever? No. But it wasn’t the worst, either. It took a little while to settle in, but once I was in, I was having fun. There were surprises, and thankfully, I enjoyed them all.

Going in, I was still on a high from Chapter 7 of The Mandalorian. I really didn’t have any excitement to see The Rise of Skywalker.
