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 second volume, and it collects the following stories:
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi - The Freedon Nadd Uprising
This 2-issue series picked up where Ulic Qel Droma and the Beast Wars of Onderon left off. Our young Jedi Knights are under assault from the ancient spirit of Sith Lord Freedon Nadd (no snickering please), and any victory they achieve may prove fleeting as secret Sith lore is brought back to the Republic by a pair of Dark Side wannabes. The artwork for this series was less than stellar.
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi - Dark Lords of the Sith
Two powerful young Jedi come too close to the Dark Side of the Force. Exar Kun seeks forbidden knowledge, and Ulic Qel Droma attempts to defeat the dark from within. These Jedi's journeys towards the Dark Side will lead to massive galactic conflict and the return of the Sith Empire. The artwork in this series is better than the Freedon Nadd Uprising, but not by much.
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi - The Sith War
Dark Lord of the Sith Exar Kun and his Sith disciples wage war on the Republic and their Jedi allies. The whole Tales of the Jedi saga has been leading up to this massive conflict.Read more ›
It is a good story. The art is okay until "Redemption", where it is phenomenal. It has the typical battle between the light side and the dark side. I just wish that someone would master WHY a person would turn to the dark side of the force, but at least this provides some explanation as to why the central characters turned (more like they were forced to embrace it).
The stories that comprise this book are solid and IMHO movie material (it definitely beats Jar-Jar, the Ewoks, and the "love story" of Episode III).
I would recommend this book and Tales of the Jedi Volume 1 for any Star Wars fan. It will not disappoint.
This book covers the stories of Ulic Qel-droma, Nomi Sunrider, and Exar Kun, three of the biggest names in the Old Republic. If it's not obvious the story begins in the last third of the first volume of this series, though this book covers the vast majority of it, including a wonderful epilogue series in the end. As a very critical and cynical reader i can't help but say how pleased i was with the stories of this book. I'm not saying they are perfect, but perhaps that's why they were paired with the terrible storyline of Naga Sadow in volume 1; anything would look good next to that atrocity.
With various artists, the artwork varies; some better than others, but this fades away beneath the storyline. Should there be another trilogy made for the theaters i deeply hope this story is up for consideration. Here's a quick overview: The Sith Empire is extinct as of a millennium ago. A couple of aristocratic, rebellious youths just can't help but to unearth some ancient Sith artifacts. In time they come to encounter the force ghost of Freedon Nadd, who has gotten his claws into the world of Onderon. In time the two aristocratic cousins come to use their vast assets to setup a 'Sith wannabe shop' that does not escape the notice of the Jedi. Eventually this leads to all out war wherein Ulic Qel-droma, in his typical, overly passionate display hopes to end the war with minimal bloodshed by secretly infiltrating the newly established Sith.Read more ›
When I was younger, I'd never even heard about the last story in this, when Ulic teaches Nomi's daughter. It's absolutely one of my favorite stories in all of Star Wars. It's a very sophisticated character study and showcases wonderful character interactions. The art style is also taken to a whole new level. I'd recommend this omnibus just for that payoff at the end.
Overall, this is an essential piece of Star Wars history. Definitely check it out if you're a fan.
