However, it's not just a rehash of Star Wars. The hero, Zayne Carrick, is a bit of a goofball as a Jedi. However, he's framed for the murder of his fellow Padawans. He joins up with Gryph, a Snivvian con artist whose outlandish sense of humor had me laughing out loud at times. Then there's the mysterious and beautiful Jarael who is as tough as she is lovely (really, I kind of have a crush on her). Finally, the group is joined by Rohlan Dyre, a Mandalorian who questions the war.
The Destroyer arc gets KOTOR back on track, providing the gang with a larger story. I'd criticized the previous issues for their lack of focus, but now we have a compelling story in Jarael's fight against slavers. And like Zayne's quest for revenge, Jarael's leads to all sorts of adventures. We are finding out a lot more about Jarael, much of it unexpected.
My only criticism with this arc is the Chantique character. KOTOR did a great job making female characters, particularly Jarael, more interesting than simply sex objects. However, Chantique slips back to the tired old trope of the scantily clad female femme fatale. She just doesn't seem like a worthy villain for the series.
Overall, I'm still enjoying KOTOR much more than I have most Star Wars EU these days.
This 120 page volume is a story about a Jedi Knight named Malak who is trying to get the other Jedi to enter a war, which is forbidden by the high council. He is also attempting to get the beautiful and deadly Jarael to also join him in the fight. In this Star Wars era there are numerous Jedi to help keep the peace in the galaxy.
I have not read the other graphic novels in this series which made this one somewhat hard to follow; nevertheless, it was a good read and look forward to reading other books in this series.
If you are a Star Wars fan you may want to check out this volume.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).
Great story, and well done.
