Moreover, Zayne himself is acting a bit odd. While it was always clear that Zayne didn't glorify violence, in this book he's a fervent pacifist. So much so that he hinders his own side to save Mandalorian lives. It just seems a bit too far a step for Zayne's character development. We never saw him nearly so averse to violence in the previous 50 issues of KOTOR. I think Zayne reaches an interesting place philosophically, but the series would have worked better if we'd seen Zayne progress to that state of pacifism, rather than just begin the story with him there.
Overall, War is still worth reading for KOTOR fans. It's Zayne and it's clear he's got more room to grow as a character. I just hope the next KOTOR series reunites the band;
Everyones favorite Force anomaly Zayne Carrick makes his return...and no one else from the previous volumes of the series. Gryph, Jarael, Slyk and all the other lovable quirky characters are either non-existent or appear in small cameos.
On top of this travesty, Zayne is portrayed as this hardcore peace lover who will do anything to keep from being violent. He just doesn't seem like the same character you've come to grow and love throughout the series. Finally, to add insult to injury, the art is just terrible in my opinion. Faces just look wrong? I'm not sure how to describe it except that it was a big turnoff.
All in all, if you loved the previous volumes and are looking to see more adventures from Zayne and co. this is NOT the book you want to pick up. Do yourself a favor and keep vol 9 as the end of the series.
John Jackson Miller is one of my favorite current Star Wars authors, whether in comics or in novels, but his humor and twists are mostly gone here. The new characters and Mandalorians aren't interesting and the villains aren't compelling. Readers hoping to see where the Zayne/Jarael dynamic went will not find anything of note. In fact War does not pick up any of the story threads from the previous volumes, making it an unnecessary read.
