With that out of the way, let's talk about the highlights I mentioned in the headline. First of all, the art is gorgeous. Really, really well done, not to mention appropiate for previously established characters. They really went all out on this one and I am a satisfied costumer in this regard.
Now, onto the story. I really enjoyed the fact that this is very much a personal mission for Maul. Like the previous issue said, Sidious has his secrets and Maul has his. That's usually very true in most Master-apprentice relationships among the Sith but Pre-Episode I Maul is usually written to be more loyal than usual for a Sith apprentice. As a result, this mission was a breath of fresh air and a clever way to explore a fan-favorite character.
Next, I have to mention the characters. Fans of the canonical Clone Wars TV Series will be pleased to see the notorious Bounty Hunters Cad Bane and Aurra Sing. The fact they are teaming up with Maul is interesting and I can't wait to see more of them in the coming issues. I also find it intriguing that, as things currently stand in the canon, Maul hired Cad Bane for a job before Sidious ever did. Maybe Maul reinforced the idea that Bane was a great enough Bounty Hunter for Sidious to hire him in Season 2 if the Clone Wars. Not to mention Dooku hired him in Season 4 of the CWs. Cad Bane certainly has a great success rate if no less than 3 Rule of 2 Sith have hired him for high risk jobs and he still lives.
Finally, I have to mention the flashback scene for the sake of the fans of Star Wars Rebels that are still wondering what the heck happened to Malachor in the distant last. There is a flashback scene that shows Maul being taken by Sidious to Malachor as part of his Sith training. We don't learn much more than we already knew but it's something and there are still 3 issues to be released as of today. I have hope we will learn more of Malachor in future issues so I suggest you pick this miniseries when you can to satisfy your curiosity.
Overall, I highly recommend this comic book title. Well done, Cullen Bunn. I could clap.
