However, it's not just a rehash of Star Wars. The hero, Zayne Carrick, is a bit of a goofball as a Jedi. However, he's framed for the murder of his fellow Padawans. He joins up with Gryph, a Snivvian con artist whose outlandish sense of humor had me laughing out loud at times. Then there's the mysterious and beautiful Jarael who is as tough as she is lovely (really, I kind of have a crush on her). Finally, the group is joined by Rohlan Dyre, a Mandalorian who questions the war.
The Dueling Ambitions arc struggles a bit in finding a focus after Zayne clears his name. I like the fact that the band is all together again. Zayne, Gryph, Jarael, and Rolhan all have their moments in these stories. But there really isn't an overarching story, just more like a bunch of sub-plots as the gang pulls off various con jobs. In some ways, it seems like an interlude because the arc does set up a few mysteries, particularly about Jarael's backstory. There are some fun moments, but it feels a bit sillier than the Covenant arc.
Also, the art style really varies dramatically issue-to-issue here. I actually like the different styles, but it also makes it hard to accept different depictions of the same character.
Overall, I'm still enjoying KOTOR much more than I have most Star Wars EU these days.
