Setting aside the setting of the Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith – Spiral series, which has had me confused for the most part, I’m still somewhat disappointed in issue #5. Don’t get me wrong the art if nice and the ending was somewhat surprising, but it also does not stray from the fairly traditional happy ending. Since this series is so far off of the normal Star Wars universe it would have been the perfect place for the writers to take some risks. Instead we’ve for our bad guy losing to the good guys. If you can call them that when they are all Sith.
Lord Dreypa and his Leviathans are destroying The Tribe when Spinner gets his hands on the only star ship in the planet. After a crash course in flying he gets a hang of it enough to take out most of the Leviathans. Which given his feelings for The Tribe is odd. I just don’t understand why he did not take off. The whole series he just wants out of there and when he gets his chance he decides not to take it right away. It seems really out of character from what we’ve seen so far from him.
While that part of the story did really bug me the actual ending was pretty fun. Seeing how the actually defeat Lord Dreypa was nice because it required some clever planning. The story wraps up with the idea that things on the planet could change down the line and the realization that the planet is much larger than the characters thought. Hopefully we’ll see in the future what else might be on the planet.If you’ve been enjoying the Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith – Spiral series then the ending is serviceable but nothing extraordinary.
