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