First, we have the New Faces of War. This story follows Anakin and Obi Wan Kenobi with two throwaway characters on a seemingly mundane mission that quickly descends into an intense battle. This story features the return of Ventress from last volume and a new villain, bounty hunter Dirge. This story was the gem of the book and was very well written.
The next story, Blast Radius follows up on this story as Obi Wan and some more throwaway characters go up against Dirge and Ventress. The story was good, but I never got to see how it ended since my copy had pages missing at the end of the story, ending it randomly. Maybe the story had a great ending, but I don't know so I will only take into account the portion i read.
The last story, Catspaw was a mess as far as I could tell. It follows Shaak Tii and Quinlan Vos on a mission against some Separatist rebels.A decent portion of this story was missing from my copy, which makes some characters appear randomly and rivalries developed without explanation. Even with the missing pages, the story is pretty bad, with characters acting brashly without point.
In conclusion, the stories collected here are fine, but most certainly a step down in quality from the last volume.
I hope you found this review helpful.
In the Jedi: Shaak Ti comic, Jedi Master Shaak Ti is leading an assault on a compound run by Shogar Tok all the while he's commanded by Count Dooku. Shaak Ti and Agen Kolar fight on the ground and Shaak Ti gets the idea to infiltrate a prison compound to rally her troops and she discovers Quinlan Vos in disguise along with a man named Saguro Autem and a girl by the name of Lyshaa and her Wookie Ryyk. Shaak devises a plan to lead the Republic to victory and bring Shogar out of power but some of the defenders can't be trusted and only the force will allow Shaak Ti to make it out alive and victorious!
This second volume gives more of the story with the introduction to one of my all-time favorite characters, Durge. Asajj also plays a prominent role and it's nice seeing Ani and Obi back in action along with Alpha. The cast overall is a really good one with beautiful art and good writing to go along with it. Shaak Ti's one-shot was cool and seeing Saguro Autem from the Honor and Duty TPB brings his character back out of the shadows and explains what happened to him since then. Overall, I really enjoyed this read and look forward to the third book!
