Comic Review: 'Star Wars #7'

Star Wars #7 shakes things up by going back in time to showcase a little adventure Obi-Wan had during his exile on Tatooine. Sadly, this may be a story only the most diehard of Obi-Wan fans will enjoy as it’s not very important to the overall scheme of things. noch 21 Wörter
