Republic centers around the members of the Jedi Council, and answers the simple question "why should I care about these Jedi?" You learn bits and pieces about what makes each council member tick throughout the series. A few of the Republic stories have been collected in past Omnibuses (Prelude to Rebellion, Outlander, and Emissaries to Malistare), but this is the one to start with if you want to read the best of the series--the struggles of Quinlan Vos.
"Quinlan Vos-Jedi in Darkness" follows the story of the troubled Jedi, Quinlan Vos, who upon getting his memory erased and left for dead on Nar Shaddaa, must gain back his lost knowledge and avoid the temptation of the dark side of the force. Throughout the story, Quinlan Vos meets the Devaronian smuggler "Villie" who serves as his occasional sidekick, who attempts to profit from Vos' misfortunes. He's got some groan-worthy dialog occasionally, but nonetheless is an intriguing character who compliments Vos well. Also among the main cast is Quinlan's pupil, the fan-favorite Aayla Secura, and Vos' former master, Tholme.
The best stories in this collection are without a doubt Twilight, Darkness, and Rite of Passage, primarily for John Ostrander's pulp-writing and Jan Duursema's brilliant visuals.Read more ›
The first story arc in the Omnibus is Twilight; issues #19-22 of the Republic series. These issues address the matter of Quinlan Vos basically awakening in the midst of a bad situation and learning that his memory has been completely wiped while he was en route to a mission. He commissions the help of a shady gambler named Villie to figure out who was behind the mind-wipe and where his padawan is! This story arc basically introduces Quinlan Vos formally and starts off the entire omnibus's storyline as well and it's done with the awesome comic art that the Republic series should be known for by now.
The next arc is entitled Infinity's End (Republic #23-26) and is about Quinlan's continued mission to find out what in the world happened to his memory and his padawan and his journey leads him to the planet Dathomir which ends up being full of evil witches hellbent on enslaving him. Quinlan is tasked to find out what the witches are up to with their digging and drilling and to find out what happened to a nearby planet that was completely obliterated. Vos eventually unravels the mystery but not before fighting off the fierce witches of Dathomir and preventing them from entering the Star Chamber; a place that holds the power to destroy entire worlds! This arc shows Quinlan's struggle with the dark side.Read more ›
Onto the stories themselves, this was a very enjoyable read. Each story has its own distinct flavor so the book is likely to please any reader with gems such as Infinity's End and The Stark Hyperspace War. There are, however, some stories that feel out of place, namely the Devaronian Version, which hardly features Quinlan at all. This story, however, has never before been reprinted so it's a mixed blessing.
Overall, definitely worth a purchase. Quinlan is a very interesting character and the stories, artwork, etc. are very well done.
This omnibus does cover his first encounters after losing his memory, and how he meets Aayla Secura for the first time, as well as Obi-Wan Kenobi. The stories that feature him are pretty good. However, he appears as only a minor character in several stories. That was my only disappointment with the Omnibus, and the reason for the four star rating instead of five.
More obscure Jedi are mentioned in this Omnibus, like Oppo Rancisis, Tholme, and even Tyvokka. If you're curious about the Stark Hyperspace Wars, this omnibus will answer most of your questions. It really is very good, but I was just hoping it would have more to do with Quinlan.
Either way, it is still a purchase I would make again if I had to. If you are, like me, a great Quin fan, then check out Star Wars: Clone Wars Volumes 4,6,8, and 9. They all have great stories about him.
