Musabekov and Cheng inject some really good art into this issue. Musabekov is particularly good at drawing Obi-Wan himself, and making the Clone Wars hero and the old desert hermit look like the same person. His Anakin looks a little too young at certain points. But I can forgive that.

Musabekov and Cheng also make pretty effective use of inanimate clone trooper armor, as the cover suggests.

Cantwell gives Obi-Wan a nice little monologue about the value and beauty of life. Great hero moment there.

This issue seems to wrap up the story of Commander Zahra, giving her a cathartic comeuppance that she so richly deserves. But you know how these things go with villains. They’re never gone unless you actually see a corpse. And even then, it’s not a guarantee.

To his credit, though, Soule does turn the end of Zahra’s story into something of a character moment for Leia. She’s tough as nails, and this issue reminds us of that in fairly grim fashion.

Massive credit to Rosanas (Or perhaps Musabekov?) for giving Zahra some great facial expressions on her final pages.
