The first story arc of many comic books tends to be rather lifeless. The authors generally write them not as self-contained stories, but as a writer's guide establishing the major characters, settings, and situations that will carry on for years, if not decades.

The first volume of Dark Horse's KOTOR was as origin stories go fairly entertaining. Despite having the aroma and flavor of Lucas left-overs (a Jedi-centric story featuring a white teenage boy set in the midst of a galaxy-wide war populated with the same old species playing the same old roles), writer John Jackson Miller spiced things up with a couple of clever plot twists and great comic timing.

In this second volume, though, he hits his stride, delivering what has to be the funniest comic book of 2007, and certainly the funniest Star Wars comic ever. Forget Tag and Bink. Check out Del and Dob, the Ithorian brothers who woke up on the wrong side of the species. Assigned to track a likely contact of padawan fugitive Zayne Carrick, the pair set in motion a 2-chapter comedy of errors when they decide to take the initiative and capture their contact instead. Besides creating characters that are sure to be fan favorites, Miller also finds at last a voice for Gryph, a character that previously played only a role (the problem-solver who knows where to go and who to ask), but who comes into his own as a key player and comic sidekick in both stories of Flashpoint.

Miller in addition introduces two Mandalorians that will likely be appearing in future stories. The evil genius Demagol is rather crudely drawn. Outfitted in Mandalorian armor, we never see his face or learn much about him except that he is investigating the source of Jedi force abilities in order to neutralize or replicate such powers.

John Jackson Miller continues Knights of the Old Republic in volume two Flashpoint. Zayne and his crew are still trying to find a way to survive when they land on Vanquo to gather supplies. Then mandalorians arrive and after an attempt to flee, Jarael is captured. Although the rest of the crew makes it to their ship(the Last Resort) It's been hijacked by a mandalorian, Rohlan Dyre. After being acquainted to Rohlan, Zayne and his crew find themselves flying back to a small planet where the mandalorians are scientifically testing captured jedi. There are also two other chapters in the book. One shows the past of Master Lucien Draay and the other four members of their jedi council came to be. The last chapter concludes the book with a situation that reveals part of Luciens plan to capture Zayne, and this reunites Zayne with his father. This story is good, but I think I personally enjoyed the first volume just a little more. Although I also think the art in this book looks a little cleaner. I give this book 4.4/5 stars

I can't say enough about the Knights of the Old Republic Series. It is without a doubt, the best of all Star Wars graphic novels and is on par or better than anything by Marvel or DC has put out in the past 10 years.

Great 2nd effort for the series, and a MUST OWN for any Star Wars fan.

Zayne Carrick, Marn Heirogryph, Jarael, Camper, and Elbee continue their trek through the galaxy, trying to avoid Master Lucien and his counselors. This time around, the team encounters Mandalorians and plans a daring escape of someone close to their group - and then we learn a bit more about Master Lucien and his fellow Jedi.

This was fantastic. From the first page, I was hooked, and I could barely stop until the very end. I will go so far as to say, I think this was BETTER than volume 1 - which isn't a surprise, because everything has been set up, and characters get a chance to grow and explore.

One thing that stood out to me that I loved in particular: the Moomo Brothers, the Ithorians. In previous Star Wars media, Ithorians have been peaceloving and amicable, content to be on their world and absorb knowledge around them. But the Moomo Brothers are the exact opposite - they are HILARIOUSLY stupid (and somehow in that perfect comedy way without get stupid stupid), violent, and selfish. I am so very tired of the Star Wars trope of saying ALL aliens of Species X are "insert adjective here". Hutts being mobsters; Twi'Lek slave girls; Rodian morons. The list goes on. But here, I start to see a variety amongst the species, something I've been clamoring for since forever.

The art, the characters, the story - all top notch. We see a few new characters (Rohlan the Mandalorian, who somehow became one of my favorite characters) and then some cameos from the game. So keep your eyes open!

I really don't have much more to say (unless you want another 6 paragraphs of my gushing) other than I enjoyed this so much, and I am moving directly to volume 3!
