This first issue was 100% top notch! Beautiful art work depicting Kannans samari like training with his master. The writing nails the characters personalities too. The most impressive Marvel title yet.

It was revealed at Celebration that Greg Weisman will also be writing the second arc for the series so that should bring him up to issues #1 through #10.

Love that cover, and I don't even pay attention to these comics.

Read Kanan #5 the other day. It wraps up the first arc and brings things up to current day. All in all, it was okay, but there were some missed opportunities to make it better I think.
