Like so many others, I was incredibly excited for Episode VII of the Star Wars saga and was overjoyed at the level of ass kickery it delivered. It made Star Wars fun again! Not that I'd disparage the prequels too gravely. I mean, they're not exactly cinematic genius, but I waited in line to see them like everybody else and left the theater excited that the franchise seemed alive and well.
This new film, though, hit all the right marks and brought me back to my first viewing of A New Hope. I cannot wait to see where this latest trilogy takes us, and I may just have to draw something up for each installment.
This piece centers around Kylo Ren, who I felt was an incredibly interesting and flawed villain. It was all kinds of fun to illustrate, and I hope you enjoy it.
