Since many of the original Tales of the Jedi trade paperbacks are out of print, Dark Horse has issued Omnibus collections of the Tales of the Jedi comics. This is the first volume, and it collects the following stories:
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi - The Golden Age of the Sith
This series was useful in recounting the original schism between the Jedi and the Sith as well as the Sith's defeat and exile across the galaxy. In this series a pair of Force-sensitive hyperspace explorers accidentally discovers the Sith homeworld. After a power struggle among the Sith Lords, the explorers are used to bring the evil of the Sith back to the Republic. As important as these events are to Star Wars continuity (never mind that the prequels would undo much of what Anderson had established regarding the Sith), the series just runs too long and has too many bland characters. The artwork is downright ugly too, which doesn't help.
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi - The Fall of the Sith Empire
This series picks up where Golden Age left off, with Sith Lord Naga Sadow's invasion of the Republic. This series was plagued by uninteresting characters, ridiculous dialogue, and the same dreadful artwork as Golden Age. Honestly, they could have combined the two series and made the story far more effective.Read more ›
The Golden Age of the Sith: Prologue - 5,000 years before Yavin. We are introduced to a young Jedi named Odan-Urr as he is ordered to leave his study of old scrolls and documents and head off to the planet of Cinnagar to assist the Empress Teta. We also get to meet the brother and sister team of Gav and Jori Daragon in their early days.
The Golden Age of the Sith - 5,000 years before Yavin. The Sith Lord Marka Ragnos ruled the galaxy until his death ignited a battle for ascension. Great battles and evil doings among the Sith ensue. The Daragons are in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Ulic Qel-Droma and the Beast Wars of Onderon - 4,000 years before Yavin. Qel-Droma and two others are sent to the system of Onderon to help deal with the beast riders who are creating havoc. Once there they become involved with rescuing the queen's daughter who has been kidnapped
The Saga of Nomi Sunrider - 3,999 years before Yavin. We see the beginnings of Nomi Sunrider's rise to becoming a great Jedi Knight.
The Omnibus is great fun to read, and I look forward to more of them from Dark Horse.
The first two thirds of this book tell the story of the Sith lord Naga Sadow, the first Sith to invade the Republic. It is Star Wars historical gold, except that the storyline, artwork and dialogue are absolute garbage. It is extremely unfortunate that such a rich era of the Star Wars universe has been so utterly molested, but i suppose we must be grateful for what we have.
So here's the positive of the Naga Sadow story. Ever seen someone of the 'race' of the Sith? Here is one of the only places you will. This is some of the oldest storyline in all of Star Wars, occuring some five thousand years before episode IV. Unfortunately it omits the story of how a group of renegade Jedi came to influence the Sith peoples, and ultimately rule over them as something to the effect of "god kings", however we do get to see the society that they set up. Also we get to see at least one major player in Star Wars history: Odan-Urr. He is certainly a more obscure reference, but is nonetheless the Yoda of his time. And that's about it folks, i'm extremely sorry to say. The rest of what i have to say about this story is not for the positive portion of this review.
Oh how i hate to bash Star Wars, but this series has it coming. The art work is bad, but all in all if that were the only problem this series had then i probably wouldn't even notice. The story is bad too. I'm saying this in passing because there really isn't much story at all.Read more ›
