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.Read more ›
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.
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.
The stories were long, worked well with each other, and gave some good background.

A good look into how it all got started. Was glad to be able to find these book and able to read some of the comics that I have a hard time finding.Published on May 14, 2014 by Chris Maslouski
Very fond of both of the Tales of the Jedi volumes. Love seeing where it all started and it's even better when you see stuff that will align with things in the future.Published on April 28, 2014 by Aaron
Awesome. I've been looking for these comics for years. And finally amazon consolidated them. Very satisfied. Only negative is the comic is super glitchy for my tablet app.Published on April 16, 2014 by J. Garcia
Really fun if you like Star Wars before the prequels permanently screwed up the Star Wars universe. Definitely worth picking up if you are fan.Published on April 5, 2014 by Trey Smith
