THE MANDALORIAN journeys to a world ruled by a cruel magistrate who has made a powerful enemy.

Synopsis: THE JEDI! THE MANDALORIAN journeys to a world ruled by a cruel magistrate who has made a powerful enemy. Featuring JEDI MASTER AHSOKA!


The Story

The Mandalorian and Child travel to the planet Corvus to find the Jedi Master Ahsoka. But as they arrive they are greeted by Morgan Elsbeth and her people who hire the Mandalorian to kill the Jedi. Of course, Din Djarin accepts the mission and uses the data that Elsbeth provides him with to find Ahsoka. After a brief fight, Din Djarin convinces Ahsoka that he is not a threat to her and asks her for help with the Child. After a series of tests. Ahsoka says she cannot help The Child but does give Din Djarin a means of finding someone else who may help.


The Artwork

 Georges Jeanty continues to have a good deal of fun illustrating this book. I really liked the work he did at the start of the book where we see Ahsoka using her duel lightsabers to take out Elsbeth’s imperial soldiers.  I also enjoyed the imagery later in the book where we see Ahsoka communicating with Grogu. There’s a nice image where we see Din Djarin standing under the moon in the foreground while Ahsoka and Grogu are sitting by a fire facing each other and talking to each other via their feelings. 



Rodney Barnes continues to do a fairly solid job of adapting the TV series to comics and seems to be getting it right. This episode in particular was a key story in the second season of Mandalorian as it introduced us to the live-action version of Ahsoka, but it also builds up to Din Djarin’s first meeting with Boba Fett. Added to that. The story also introduces Morgan Elsbeth who later gets a prominent role in the Ahsoka series, which just finished its run a few weeks back.

Overall. I enjoyed revisiting this story through this comic.
