By Daiho VINE VOICE on March 17, 2008
Format: Paperback
This third volume of John Jackson Miller's KOTOR is not quite as satisfying as the first two. The humor's still there, as is a bit of well-scripted pathos, but the second half of the book becomes wordy, the conceptual work is a bit campy, and the story remains incomplete. If you're buying this volume as a stand alone, be aware the conclusion is in Volume 4.

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.

John Jackson Miller continues knights of the old republic with volume three Days of Fear, Nights of Anger. The story picks up with Zayne and Marn in their sneaky-but-not-so-sneaky journey to find the 'bad' jedi, and Jarael and Camper on their journey to start a new life. Zayne and Marn manage to get a new ship, only having picked up a new crew member due to a life debt and start new day jobs cooking meals for the republic military. Jarael and Camper end up returning to Arkania (Jaraels homeworld) and being caught by the only people Camper was running from. This book is well written and illustrated like usual, but for some reason I didn't find it as compelling as the first two volumes as a whole. Still, I give KOTOR volume three...4/5 stars.

As a person who had never read these comics before, I thought they were great. Especially since they lumped them all together like this. I'm sure it will be a while before they make an Omnibus out of them, but all in all the storyline was good and the artwork was enjoyable as well.

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...

I can't say enough about the Knights of the Old Republic Series. It is without a doubt, the best of all Star Wars graphic novels and is on par or better than anything by Marvel or DC has put out in the past 10 years.

Some great cameos by KOTR Video Game characters, and a MUST OWN for any Star Wars fan.

This was another fantastic entry in the Knights of the Old Republic comic line. Jarael and Camper break off from Zayne and Gryph, so now instead of following one storyline, we get to see two. We see Jarael and Camper's homeworld and learn what Camper has been running from. Meanwhile, Zayne and Gryph end up serving food to soldiers until Zayne has a terrible vision.

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!
