In issue five there was a shifting of gears as the story was throttled back and the art was shifted forward. Throughout the issue were nicely depicted close-ups of the characters, colorful action scenes, and a few panels fully charged with emotion that all contributed to a general boon in the art aspect. Yet the upswing in art went hand-in-hand with a weaker story. The issue covered too much in a short amount of time with a chaotic pace that felt rushed. To top it off, there is only one issue left to wrap up the entire series, and none of the major topics were concluded in this issue…

Issue #3 of Legacy – War is a one-two punch combination of story development and climatic action. Starting with story development, the final threads are wrapped up to bring all the characters to Taivas, the Jedi’s Hidden Temple. Characters make amends, factions finish their plans, and the stage is set for what might be the first battle in the end game. However, this is only the start of the story as Issue #3 goes right into the battle of the Hidden Temple.
