This story, although clearly part of a larger five-issue event, lacks the ability to stand on its own. While the story is fun, it’s less than memorable outside of a few sight gags, like seeing a giant mutated Chewbacca and Han Solo. My critiques are more an indictment of the presentation of the story rather than the comic itself. Instead of being consumed as single issues, Ghosts of Vader’s Castle would work best as a collected graphic novel. Needless to say, if you’re a casual fan of Star Wars or are woefully unfamiliar with the property, regardless of your age, this book is not for you. There is an assumption here that you are more than familiar with the characters and setting, which a new fan would find overwhelming.
