Of the many Star Wars comics issued by Dark Horse, the Tales of the Jedi line was far and away my favorite. The series' setting (5000 years before A New Hope) let authors Kevin J. Anderson and Tom Veitch really go wild in creating the early tales of the Jedi Knights and their Sith adversaries, and resulted in the creation of some of the Star Wars Universe's most memorable characters.

Since many of the original Tales of the Jedi trade paperbacks are out of print, Dark Horse has issued Omnibus collections of the Tales of the Jedi comics. This is the second volume, and it collects the following stories:

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi - The Freedon Nadd Uprising
This 2-issue series picked up where Ulic Qel Droma and the Beast Wars of Onderon left off. Our young Jedi Knights are under assault from the ancient spirit of Sith Lord Freedon Nadd (no snickering please), and any victory they achieve may prove fleeting as secret Sith lore is brought back to the Republic by a pair of Dark Side wannabes. The artwork for this series was less than stellar.

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi - Dark Lords of the Sith
Two powerful young Jedi come too close to the Dark Side of the Force. Exar Kun seeks forbidden knowledge, and Ulic Qel Droma attempts to defeat the dark from within. These Jedi's journeys towards the Dark Side will lead to massive galactic conflict and the return of the Sith Empire. The artwork in this series is better than the Freedon Nadd Uprising, but not by much.

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi - The Sith War
Dark Lord of the Sith Exar Kun and his Sith disciples wage war on the Republic and their Jedi allies. The whole Tales of the Jedi saga has been leading up to this massive conflict.

This omnibus edition from Dark Horse contains the Exar Kun war. To most Star Wars enthusiasts, this may or may not make a lot of sense. So, for those who have played Knights of the Old Republic, it contains the exploits of the Qel-Droma clan and Nomi Sunrider. For those who have read the Jedi Academy books where Luke sets up the Academy on Yavin IV, it tells the story of Exar Kun and how he got trapped on Yavin.

It is a good story. The art is okay until "Redemption", where it is phenomenal. It has the typical battle between the light side and the dark side. I just wish that someone would master WHY a person would turn to the dark side of the force, but at least this provides some explanation as to why the central characters turned (more like they were forced to embrace it).

The stories that comprise this book are solid and IMHO movie material (it definitely beats Jar-Jar, the Ewoks, and the "love story" of Episode III).

I would recommend this book and Tales of the Jedi Volume 1 for any Star Wars fan. It will not disappoint.

Magnificent! The Great Sith War. In most of the Star Wars stories its said that this took four years, but in this case we view it more or less in a few months but the chaos that resulted from the war was far more terrible than I had imagined it would be.

A tragic, yet moving story of redemption and sacrifice is also told. Without a doubt Uliq Qel-Droma is just as much like Anakin Skywalker. No surprise they would sort of meet in the video game Clone Wars.

Wonderful! B+

The artwork is very good and detailed throughout. The inks and colours enhanced the story, making me pay more attention to the scenes and people than I usually do.
The stories were long, worked well with each other, and gave some good background.

I love the Star Wars series. After playing the KOTOR games I've been interested in the Old Republic era. In terms of Tales of the Jedi, I like this one better. The story of Exar Kun and Ullic is so interesting. This comic is very fluid moving between the various main characters. I bough the Kindle version and the art looks crisp and clear.

With so many stories to read all I can do is sum up what I 've read. First no matter how noble a being, darkness can still find you. Second be content with what you have. Third, if you lose yourself you can always recover especially when someone else believes in you. These are the themes within this book.

As a kid, I had gotten a few of The Sith War comics at the local comic store and had really enjoyed them, but I was never able to complete the set as i had missed two different issues. Now years later getting this Omnibus and reading the before and after stories of that series, I was able to get the complete story of events that I had missed as a kid. While the first book's art work left a little to be desired, I was glad to see things improved from there on. The storylines were good as well and I espcially like Redemption book seeing that Ulic was able to come back to the Light even still blocked from the Force. All in all, a good read and one that is recommended to any Star Wars fan of the Old Republic era.
