Star Wars The Sith War April 30, 2007

Star Wars The Sith War is quite possibly THE BEST tales of Jedi graphic novel of the Old Republic ever published.

This is the story of Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma..it’s not a simple straight forward ‘comic’ tale but an engaging thoughtful epic story.

Far too often Star Wars stories are rote formula, this book though true to Star Wars has back and forth action, more Jedi than I could count and Sith that are truly evil and outwardly bent on the fall of the republic – no shady subterfuge here just brute force Jedi vs. Sith.

Personally i would have chosen this book to be part of the 30th Anniversary Star Wars Hardcover collection – apparently Dark Horse thought it had better titles..while The Uprising of Freedon Nad is an excellent tale as is Jedi vs Sith both those books pale in comparison to the Sith War.

Golden Age of the Sith and Fall of the Sith Empire are both solid titles as well, but I’d still take The Sith War as my number one fav.

Exar Kun’s march to the Dark Side and ultimate entombment on Yavin IV would have made for a much MUCH better story than Lucas told in Episodes 1 and 2…too bad this won’t ever be a Lucas produced movie.
