Format: Paperback
For those of you who missed it, Darth Maul is back. Yes, most of us thought he was long gone from the galaxy far, far away, but one absolute truth in science fiction is that not even death can keep a good character down. Just like Obi-wan Kenobi reached out from the greater beyond in order to whisper the mantra "use the Force" to young Luke Skywalker as he raced his X-Wing fighter down the Death Star trench, why couldn't one of the Sith transcend death? While some fans may find Maul's resurrection a bit bizarre, I personally find it a stroke of genius mostly because it keeps with what little we know of them thus far: they cling to life in order to seek out power and control over others, and, with his `dying' moments focusing his rage on a young Kenobi, Maul did just that. He survived death - in a macabre physical form - and, thankfully, he's back in the Star Wars universe to wreck havoc at the side of his brother, Savage Opress.

(WARNING: the following review will contain minor spoilers for the sole purpose of discussing the plot. If you prefer your reviews spoiler-free, then skip to the last two paragraphs for a quick assessment. Otherwise ... may the Force be with you and read on!)

With the help of the Night Sisters (see STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS television show for reference), Count Dooku's fallen apprentice Savage Opress combed the worlds of the galaxy and found that his fallen brother - Darth Maul - has survived. How? Hate and rage are the Sith's path, and only such powerful emotions could fuel the life force of a Dark Jedi sliced in half. Indeed, marshalling the forces of greed and envy can produce great benefits, as Maul has now been outfitted with a mechanical body in order to continue his pursuit of power.

This comic is aimed towards kids it seems, but it does fill in some of the games between Season 4 and 5 of the Clone Wars, so some adults might find their way to it. What's a bit more surprising is that the comic isn't bad. In fact, it has a lot of potential, but because it's geared towards kids it seems Dark Horse didn't go the extra mile on this one. The art is simple and bold, a bit like the old Clone Wars TV show. I prefer the darker and more realistic art of the other comics. The dialogue is sometimes simplistic, but never cringe worthy. What I really appreciated was the simplicity of the story. This is just Maul and Opress rounding up credits, causing trouble. During the course of the story, we get some great moments, like when Palpatine first learns about Maul's survival. The comic as a whole comes across as a perfect bridge between the two seasons and doesn't try to be too much by forcing in an epic quest. I just wish Dark Horse put in the extra effort and made this something adults could be proud of as well.

Sith versus Jedi, Darth Maul versus Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Star Wars completist who craves additional insight into the Sith might enjoy this story, but I wouldn't recommend it to the casual fan. The writing smacks of a fourth-grader trying to combine lyrics from cheesy pop songs with dialog from a bad Kung Fu movie.

The artwork is so simplistic, so lacking in detail, it left me with the impression that the whole thing was drawn in about twenty minutes. Faces are apparently optional; familiar characters are all but unrecognizable.

Only recommended for the rabid fanatic and preteens, who might not notice (or care about) the dumbed-down writing. Everyone else can safely give it a pass.

Sith Hunters is a great follow up to the Season 4 finale (See Darth Maul Returns DVD). This story tells the events immediately following those events and explains in detail how Darth Maul lived following his duel with Kenobi in Episode 1.

While it helps to have seen the Clone Wars finale/Darth Maul returns it is not necessary (but I recommend it).

The art is good, the story entertaining. Check it out.

I buy my nieces and nephews a lot of Star Wars stories. I want them to practice and get into the habit of reading. It doesn't hurt that they are Star Wars stories, which allow them to use their imaginations, as well knowing that they are young fans of the genre.

A great set up between season 4 and 5. Takes place right where season 4 leaves off and continues the story of Maul and his brother. Gives a little backstory of how Maul survived using the dark side of the force but still very unrealistic and yes I know this isn't real but for it to be fun it needs to be at least realistic to some degree. I mean he was cut in half how would he go to the bathroom really? All jokes aside and I am sure people feel like why complain Maul is back who needs an explanation with so many great characters out there why dig up old bones or torso's for that matter. Felt like you were watching an episode of the Clone Wars so the story was on par to most of the Clone War stuff and accomplish its purpose which is to get you pumped for season 5. Also in this issue is a really cool jedi that reminded me of Bruce Lee. So Maul vs Bruce Lee I guess.

Darth maul survives his epic faulty battle with obi-wan focusing on his hatred of the jedi and gets artificial limbs just like vader does and continues on a dark path with his brother. I love it because his character is a force of its own and he has made a huge impact on the clone wars tv series...great story overall
