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