Kanan Secures Release in Final Chapter of The Last Padawan


Marvel Comics brings us the last chapter in the secret history of Kanan from “Star Wars Rebels.” Writer Greg Weisman wraps things up quite nicely with the assistance of artist Pepe Labraz’s elaborate handiwork. It’s a shame Star Wars: Kanan – The Last Padawan #5 is the final issue in the miniseries, because I could definitely see the makings of a monthly comic here.

In Star Wars: Kanan - The Last Padawan #5, Caleb has been captured by Clone Troopers Grey & Styles! How will he escape from their clutches? Can he turn his back on his Jedi training completely?

Issue #5 of Star Wars: Kanan - The Last Padawan is rated T for Teen. It contains violence and frightening and intense scenes. There’s not much more here than what we see every week on “Star Wars Rebels.”

Star Wars: Kanan - The Last Padawan #5 continues to give readers a glimpse into what created the man we see in “Star Wars Rebels.” We are given the pieces to the puzzle that explain the amount of loss and tragedy the young Jedi-in-training experienced. It provides a visual guide that shows what it took to drive an individual to the point of taking up arms against a seemingly unstoppable Empire. You can't help but get sucked in by the emotional rollercoaster ride of action and drama the comic takes you on.

Star Wars: Kanan - The Last Padawan #5 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
