Inquisitors #1

Featuring the Force-wielding Inquisitors introduced in Star Wars Rebels, the first issue of the new mini-series starts on the planet Targyon with the Grand Inquisitor searching for Jedi Tensu Run who Darth Vader has tasked him in finding. Not finding the Jedi, and displeased by the locals unwillingness to provide information about his whereabouts, he leaves death in his wake. The comic also provides some flashbacks Tensu Run taking down an Imperial outpost on his own and freeing prisoners beginning a legend the Dark Lord of the Sith wants squashed before it spreads any further creating a hero for others to rally behind.

The Grand Inquisitor eventually tracks down Tensu Run's master and friends, again leaving dead bodies in his wake. However, it's this latest destruction that seems to tip the scales and instead of attempting to rebuild Jedi refuges across the galaxy, Tensu Ren decides to go on the offensive setting up what should be an action-packed series of issues between the Jedi and the Inquisitors.

The opening issue doesn't offer more insight into the sect of the Inquisitors, and only gives us one of their number. Hopefully we'll get more of both in the issues to come. As for the concept, I'm all for giving the Inquisitors their own adventures and I'm very curious to see where things go from here.
