Gives a good look as to the rising conflicts that the repbulic was dealing with on a daily basis. It just reminds people of what really counts in life and how not everyone receives the credit for their actions. This also leads up to the events of Star wars episode 1. Shows the rise of chancellor valorum and viceroy nute gunrey as well as delving into how great ploo koon is as a jedi master and member of the jedi council.

When young rogue Iarco Stark decides the galaxy needs a good shake, you know Stark Hyperspace War is just ready to rumble.

Set after Darkness, with Aayla Secura returned to the Council for retraining following her current amnesia, this story is told in flashback when a veteran just seems to walk into the room. A dozen years before TPM, the attack on a bacta refinery sends market prices soaring and worlds roaring. Into the equation come the Jedi diplomatic team, and shadowing their tails the radical Ranulph Tarkin, whose military ambitions outweigh whatever usefulness his puffing presence offers. Throw in Stark's smarmy mouth, the expectant flavour of bumbling Jedi, and the resulting recipe is action all the way.

Or at least, that's the overall idea. The reality is action on a pony ride.

Readers of Hunt for Aurra Sing and Acts of War will find the art familiar. This means saber blades and energy shots are little more than colour sticks, illustrations and detail simple. Not terribly sophisticated, but it gets the job done. But it's those darn floating heads that can grate on you, and head shots there are plenty, reminding you not to confuse the present to the main flashback escapade, as though that was even possible. Senator Valorum didn't look a thing like his movie counterpart, but neither did Calrissian in Scoundrel's Luck . . . and it's not like Antilles resembled his alter ego all that much too in his Rogue Squadron series, but what the hey, it's all creative liberty.

The Republic fleet consists of the ubiquitous Consular cruisers and a variety of other Judicial Dept refitted cruisers. Artists seem to like that particular of nondescript attack fighter, the one Sing flew in her Hunt for Aurra comic.

This Comic combines issues 36 through 39 and losely picks up where the TPB DARKNESS leaves off. Given that the story mostly involves events that take place before the battle of Naboo I would put it at -32.05 BNH.
The story opens with Quinlan and his padawan Aayla Secura finally at the Jedi Temple for memory recovery. Windu begins telling the story of Iaco Stark and the hyperspace war that involved Bacta and Thyferra. The SHW takes place just before EP1.
The story is by Ostrander, one of my favorites and rates 4.5.
The overall comic design is a throwback to the old style comic strip stuff I thought we were past.
Design gets 3 stars. In fact, the poor design decision may be the cause for my partial dislike of the pencil and ink work. The pencil work is uneven with the main flaw being the poorly drawn rendition of Obi-Wan. The inking by Vecchia is 4.5 stars and could have been a 5 had the design been more like Darkness or the new TPB Clone Wars volume 2. Duursema's cover art is 5 stars.
The art of Foster is 2 stars.
Overall, this is a solid 4 star comic and highly recommended. It is a valuable addition to brilliantly conceived PRE-QUEL era work being done by Darkhorse and Lucas et al.
