If yoou have read the novels by Karpyshyn, you'll love this TPB. The comic covers all events thru the first Darth Bane book "Path of Destruction", as well as the first few chapters into the second novel "Rule of Two". The roll of main character is shifted from Bane himself, to a trio of cousins, one of whom becomes Banes apprentice Darth Zhanna. This paperback helps to fill in the blanks of the war between the Kaan's Sith Brotherhood of Darkness against Hoths Jedi Army of Light, while Bane is studying on Korriban.

If you're a fan of the Darth Bane Dualogy, you'll love this book.

Save your money; this BARELY qualifies as Star Wars. It's loosely based on the events of the middle-to-end of Darth Bane: Path of Destruction (Book 1), but it does the book and the Star Wars mythos ZERO justice. Jedi don't look or act like Jedi. The Sith look like goofy WoW characters and I swear Bane's model is traced straight from DC's Dark Seid. If you haven't read Path of Destruction, you'll be lost by plotpoints that seemingly appear out of nowhere (SPOILER ALERT: the comic actually makes the claim that Lord Kaan came up with the idea for the Thought Bomb all on his own and the rest just blithely followed him! This plotpoint also comes out of nowhere!)

I'll be blunt: the only thing that ties this to Star Wars is the inclusion of lightsabers as weaponry, and even THAT is presented in a weak, static way. This comic has NONE of the finesse, care, or styling of the proper Star Wars comics like the New Republic, Old Republic, Vader Rising, or even the older style ones like Dark Empire or Grand Admiral Thrawn comic adaptations.

I highly recommend against purchasing this comic. There are MANY better Star Wars comics to choose from, plus the entire plethora of the Expanded Universe novels!

This is the one comic of Star Wars I own that I actually regret buying.

Star Wars is known for its action, but a lot of EU stories come off as emotionally stale. Jedi vs. Sith is a nice change of pace, a brutal look at the nature of the Light and Dark Sides of the Force.

The comic follows several different characters, in a sense each embodying a different perspectives of good and evil. Each character follows a different path and almost none end up where you'd expect them to be. And it's a tribute to the writers that none of the characters feels artificial.

As some have complained, the artwork for this volume looks a bit cartoonish and out of place in the rest of the Star Wars EU. You'd think it's a comic geared towards kids, until you see the dark themes.

The general story is retold in Path of Destruction, but this comic has a few character points not included in the book. I also like how it positions the three children. Definitely worth a read if you're open to different interpretations of the Star Wars EU.

This is supposed to relate the tale of how the Sith evolved into a one-master and one-disciple system. But frankly, it [wasn't good] even though the graphics were passable.
In this story, the distinction between the Jedi and the Sith became blurred. The stage was set for the showdown between the Jedi and the Sith, except that readers can't really tell the Jedi from the Sith. The Sith seemed to have diminished greatly in their dark stature from Tales of the Sith etc, while the Jedi were little better than lightsaber-wielding adventurers. The writers reduced both side to engage in purely physical combats without regards to their creeds. The Jedi-Sith showdown became a brawl in the mud.
Jedis were also depicted to be indiscriminate in who they kill, and even more foolish in bringing in untrained and undisciplined children who had little sense of right and wrong into the thick of battles, exposing them to anger, hatred and fear, fuels for the dark side.
This is one of the worst Star Wars story, totally unfit to be part of a critical tale of the Star Wars history.

In 2001, Dark Horse Comics released a six-part comic book series which tells the story of the Battle of Ruusan, some 1000 years before the events of Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. It tells the story of the Battle, and Darth Bane's use of the Thought Bomb, and of Zannah's apprenticing to Bane.

Overall, I found this to be a pretty good book. I found the story to be interesting, and the graphic work to quite well done. Some of the characters looked like D&D characters - including an elf, a harpy, and a satyr - which I found a bit disappointing, but I did not find that it ruined the experience for me.

I thought that it was a good book, and I really enjoyed reading it. If you are hungry for more Star Wars adventures, then give this book a try; I think you'll like it!

There's a possibility you fall into one of two groups: you're looking for SW comics about Sith or you just read the latest Darth Bane book and are looking for SW comics about Sith. This comic can either satisfy or dissapoint you depending on what are you looking for. There are a couple of Sith moments in the comic (which the story is supposed to be Sith centered) but is more of a story of how things can be heroic from a certain point of view and when you change it it looks completely different. The comic posses a good question about the nature of evil. As you know, there's pure natural evil, but there's also the slight "maybe it is, maybe it isn't, from a certain POV" evil. If you read the Darth Bane novel this will be a good complement (with some slight changes in the sequence of events), if you're looking for a comic it is a good read that will leave you asking more question than when you began.
