Naked Reading 2023 V
I've updated my Naked Reading 2023 page with my first comic 2023 (many more coming soon as several series I'm reading are just concluding).
This three-issue story is Light and Life, the first story-arc of the Star Wars: Yoda maxiseries. In which Yoda visits a tropical paradise to stop warring neighbours warring, and takes his sweet time about it! The theme of this arc is trust and patience, and Yoda certainly does his best to test both qualities, by staying on the planet for several years, and then not returning for several decades. This reveals maybe the other message of the story; that Yoda’s determination to make everything a teaching moment, while ultimately playing out for the better here, maybe could averted decades of strife if he’s been a bit more direct! A potentially interesting environmental element to the story seems just barely touched upon, something I’d have enjoyed more of. An interesting enough if not super-satisfying start to the series.
That's my mini-review, but I've also written more extensive thoughts on my book review blog.
Plus again as a little bonus for my Patreon supporters, I've shared a few alternate takes of this self-portrait there.
