Jocasta Nu is brains and brawn.
Oh, and guns?
Jedi have them and Jocasta uses her with the greatest of efficacy and ease.
That’s just the beginning of what writer Charles Soule and artistic team Guiseppe Camuncoli (pencils), Daniele Orlandini (inks), David Curiel (colors) and VC’s Joe Caramagna (letters) have wrought with a tale that is nonstop action even as it offers more detail about the Jedi Order and Nu’s importance to not just it, but Emperor Palpatine, his Empire and the Sith, too.
This arc, part III of “The Dying Light,” is a riveting story, focusing with precision as it does on Nu and the Grand Inquisitor, a fallen Jedi who has harbored a grudge against her over her refusal to share with him deeper Jedi knowledge and lore. Nu makes it clear it wasn’t personal. In her role she had to guard both unready Jedi — masters, knights and padawans — from learning too much and knowing too little.
It’s that knowledge that makes her so valuable to Palpatine and to Vader, but not to the Grand Inquisitor who, despite not being Sith, is consumed by Sith-like desire to punish the one — he believes — denied him the forbidden fruit of knowledge.

A DISTURBANCE IN THE FORCE!
‘Jedi Mania’ Hits the UK ahead of the launch off Star Wars: The Last Jedi
• Lightsaber duels staged in London, Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham
• Londoners delighted by Jedi duel in London skate park and on the South Bank
• Instagram sensation Matt Scutt teams creates stunning lightsaber photography series
• Lightsaber combat is a growing, fun sport for children and adults
Two martial arts experts surprised and delighted Londoners with a spectacular lightsaber duel as ‘Jedi fever’ hit the UK ahead of the highly anticipated release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Thursday.
NOTE: While this is a review of The Last Jedi, it does not contain any spoilers regarding plot or characters. However, the tone and atmosphere are discussed at length. If you wish to remain 100% spoiler-free, feel free to come back and read this review after you have seen the film.
Our patience has paid off. It’s been two long years since we left Rey and Luke standing on the cliffs of Ahch-To and now we’re just days — mere hours, really — away from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Like any dedicated Padawan learner, the months leading up any new Star Wars film have posed a challenge. Fandom in the age of the internet is a delicate balance between absorbing as much information as possible and trying to ensure that the first viewing experience is still full of magic, wonder, and surprises. Learning about the world we’re about to dive into while avoiding any major spoilers can feel a bit like navigating an asteroid field.
Here’s how I’ve tried to get ready while remaining vigilant:
It’s an extra-special special episode as we sit down with Alex Ray and Jim Mello, co-creators of the wildly popular and strikingly imaginative A Star Wars Comic to mark the completion of a year’s worth of stories and tales from a galaxy far, far away in our respective head canon.
For us, it’s been a shared road, given our love for Star Wars comics. It was in January 2017 that we spoke with them ahead of the first comic and having Jim and Alex’s effort has been exceedingly satisfying month in and month out.
They’ve taken us — and you — from one end of the Star Wars galaxy to another, introducing new characters alongside with old favorites.
