The fifth, and penultimate issue of the mini series, released Aug. 2, continues what has been a stellar retelling of the cinematic hit, while offering modest bits of material not seen in the film.
That’s not surprising, given editor Heather Antos has referred to it, and rightly so, as a director’s cut. The film’s director, Gareth Edwards, was consulted ahead of the series’ publication.
