I need not even comment on that.

The general story is retold in Path of Destruction, but this comic has a few character points not included in the book.

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.

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.

This book has it all. Do you want to get away from the movies and other books put between a little before episode one and 25-30 years after episode 4, get this graphic novel. The three kids make the comic great. You get to see Tomcat, his cousin, and his little sis have their fate combined. They must chose the sides of which they will stand by. See what happens in the great battle and the surprising ending. Also you get to see whats happening w/ illustrations instead of words. This graphic novel is a must-get. Check it out at a borders near you!

I adored this comic, I can now see why it's so damn popular. it's theme is bold, complex and purely Star Wars. It is a heartworming and heartbreaking tale of war and hardship, very bittersweet. It is even somewhat emotionally compelling. The relationship between the main characters Darovit, Zannah and Hardin, is touching. This relationship starts off as unstable, yet as the three move towards their destiny's throughout the story, that all changes. In the end, each cousin risks their life for the other. Don't let the soft and coy art style fool you though, this comic is not for kids. Keep in mind it's theme is war, so expect violence and occasional intense moments. It also contains advanced dialog, so yeah... not for unintelligent little brats. NO, you don't half to be a die hard Star Wars fan to enjoy this comic. If you are new to Star Wars and a fan of sci-fi or fantasy, you might just enjoy this... give it a try!

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!

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 style of drawing is all wrong for the SW universe, especially for the important comic chronicling the final defeat of the ancient Sith. (Doesn't it seem like people ALWAYS thought they were defeated, and they came back about three times?) Round, cutesy faces with trembling eyes and strange facial expressions may be fine for weirdo Japanese cartoons, but they don't cut it for the high standard set by Star Wars. Anyway, the story centers around three sideline characters (kids) who have no bearing on the future galaxy. Why must we read about them, then? The Jedi recruit these three scrawny kids into their army of light. How hard up must they be for help? The young girl turns to the dark side. Why? Because a few Jedi accidentally kill this useless green puff-ball that's been following her around the comic book pages. I need not even comment on that. Darth Bane and Lord Hoth, the only two men relevant to anything, make this comic worth buying. I would buy this simply to own a critical piece of SW history, but its presentation is severely lacking.
