It was no secret how Rogue One was going to end.
We all saw it coming.
Yet that did little to stop the team behind the six-issue film adaptation from adding one last, lofty and piercing surprise to throw us for a loop. All it took was a series of words that for some Star Wars fans, were the first they ever read.
Rogue One ended as it began with rich detail, added material and luxurious storytelling in words and images.
The final issue of Rogue One wasn’t bereft of the extreme emotional toll of losing the entire Rebel band on Scarif. That grief and shock remained lasting and durable.
