Miller opens with a farewell, the Arkanian drifters Jarael and Camper saying fare-thee-well to the fugitives, padawan Zayne Carrick and Snivvian hustler Gryph. With no plan and no place to go - and no interest in paying full retail - Gryph hires a dim-witted Trandoshan to liberate private transport. Making orbit just as the authorities arrive, the trio don't realize they're piloting a provisioning ship (a mobile restaurant) until they fly right into the middle of a military convoy headed for the front. Unable to escape the armada, they follow to the planet Serroco, where Gryph sets up business and finds to everyone's surprise that while the Trandoshan may not be such a great criminal, he knows his way around the kitchen. But just as soon as things start looking up, the Mandalorians arrive and with them a Force vision of the future, a planetary inferno for the population of Serroco. To save them, Carrick has to convince the Republic forces to move off. And to do that, he has to turn himself in.
"Days of Fear" has all the elements that have made KOTOR such a remarkable series: humor, an emphasis on character over plot, cinematic storytelling, and beautiful art. It also offers one of those rare moments in comics, a scene that honestly evokes a warm feeling of sympathy and compassion. By "honest" I mean that the scene plays naturally.Read more ›
Set back in the Mandalorian Wars, really right at the beginning, it has all new characters and races and is quite entertaining. It'll take a couple of hours to read it, but is thoroughly enjoyable. I recommend it.
Also, get Volumes 1 & 2, however I don't know when 4 is coming out... but, as Qui Gon said... "Patience my young padawan..."
If you like the Knights of the Old Republic games, you get to see the characters Malak and Revan before they went bad...
Some great cameos by KOTR Video Game characters, and a MUST OWN for any Star Wars fan.
Miller and the gang continue to bring their best into this series. The characters are fantastic, the art great, the dialogue snappy, the story full of twists and turns, never giving you a dull moment. This team has tapped into what made Star Wars FUN in the first place, and they never let themselves get complacent.
Fans of the video game will squeal to see Squint reappear and Carth (I did thanks to my buddy reader, Iset!). If you aren't familiar, you won't "get it", but the characters were well done, as is the case for every character in this comic.
I must take a moment to talk about the women of KOTOR. All too often in Star Wars novels, we get token females (and Leia). And while I do think there could be more females in the Republic army/navy (it is unclear the sex in the Mandalorian army), the fact remains the women of KOTOR are done fantastically. Jarael does not need to be constantly saved. She isn't motivated solely by a love interest or all the men around her. She can have conversations with women without resorting to slut-shaming. Similarly, we have Raana and Q'anilia, the two Jedi Counselors who are part of Lucien's Inner Circle. TWO. Out of FIVE. Fantastic ratio! And these women are complex - not just goodie-goods or femme fatales.
This is definitely a top-notch sequel, one that I greatly enjoyed. A part of me IS afraid that with so many good comics, how can Miller possibly keep it up, but I am not letting that from holding me back! I have Volume 4 on my nightstand right now!

I've been a bit disappointed at how much of the modern Star Wars EU seems to have lost sight of what made the Original Trilogy such a success. Read morePublished on December 10, 2012 by Arnold
