Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi

Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi

Oh man are we excited to this series come back!

Dark Horse now has this FRAKKED idea that every series should be a mini-series of 5 or 6 issues after which they take a few months off.

So instead of month after month of Dawn of the Jedi goodness..we’ve had to wait…

We finished the first five issues of Dawn of the Jedi back in September. At the end of that story arc – Xesh – the ‘Force Hound’ was send to Bogan with other miscreants to re-learn the ways of the force.

Now we’re finally going to see what this Bogan is all about and it sure looks/sounds impressive to us.

Banished to the dark moon Bogan, the Force Hound Xesh has been living in contemplation; the memory of who he was before his ship crashed on Tython still escapes him. A rival from his past is on his trail, and the Je’daii are doing all they can to discover his origin. And now, Xesh is about to meet someone who will change his life forever, a former great Je’daii . . . the prisoner of Bogan!

Forget about Jedi – the new Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi Series is about the JE’DAII.

These JE’DAII are the predecessors of the Jedi we all know…they’re also a bunch of wimps that have been sequestered in black hole surrounded planet Tython to protect them.

Yeaah we’re talking about the new Dark Horse comic book here – it’s an amazing concept, but unlike Legacy which from the first page was PURE AWESOME. This title might take a bit more time till it grows on us.

What Dark Horse is doing here is giving us the ultimate prequel – but it’s a bit too far fetched in some respects..so far.

Anyways – we do find out what JE’DAII (or later Jedi) means it’s a Dai Bendu terms meaning : Mystic Center

These early jedi were all about finding balance between the light and the darkness. Though at this early stage the darkness are not the Sith.

The evil forces are led by Force Hounds like Xesh – that’s the dude on the cover of issue #1. He’s working for the Rakatan and their empire.

Apparently and this shocked us.. the Rakatan are the dudes that turn Tatooine from a lush paradise into a dessert too..

20110629-085443.jpg Now that Dark Horse has finished off Legacy..we’ve been looking at new series…

First up is Jedi the Dark Side… Now the art isn’t what we typically like..but after reading the first two issues it has started to grow on us.

Qui Gon is the central character but he’s not the jedi of episode one and he sure likes to yell at his padawan..Xanatos.

The Jedi librarian character Tahl is really interesting too as she comes off As the wise jedi master..

Where will this series go? What will happen to Xanatos? We know Qui Gon gets Obi Wan as a padawan at some point and a master only gets one padawan..

Star Wars : Fate of the Jedi : Conviction. 1 word review – TERRIBLE! June 28, 2011

This series started off alright but this is the worst book yet ….

As opposed to the last book – Fate of the Jedi Vortex – which was AWESOME, this book has a few interesting moments but for the most part it just drags on…

and on..

and on…..

and on…

So here’s the spoiler for you…Tahiri is convicted (the conviction on the cover), Chief of State Natasi is overthrown in a coup and then they both get sent to the same prison and both escape. In the meantime Abeloth is cornered and escapes..the Keshiri Sith are cornered and escape too.

and oh yeah Luke is the grandmaster of the Jedi again.

in between that..nothing happens, the plot is boring and pedantic and were it not for the fact that we knew it had to lead somewhere we would have put this book down midway for lack of anything interesting going on.

Yes this book advances the plot, so yes if like us, you’ve become hooked on the Fate of the Jedi, you will read it. But just don’t expect to enjoy it as much as Vortex.

With months in-between issue Dark Horse has made this a tough series to follow..

But we follow cause it’s soo freakin awesome.

Finally we get some action here and only one pirate group is left standing – sword law be damned.

But how is Das Jennir going to save everyone here? And will he reconnect with his pals bomo and crew?

One this is for sure when the next and final issue in this arc is out, we’re going back to re-read all five issues.

Order 66 by Karen Traviss – BANTHA PUDUU! October 31, 2008

Just finished reading Order 66 by Karen Traviss and the short review – it’s the shebs! 

This book should have been awesome but it’s not.

Traviss takes the ultimate clone command – Order 66 – and somehow turns the story into a long drawn out tale of how clones escape from the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR).

Order 66 is a sideline – a plot twist in the end of the book instead of being the central theme. It’s just another order and the only Jedi that gets killed is….[WON’T DO THE SPOILER HERE..] well it’s the only Jedi you don’t want to die.

Most of the story doesn’t make sense it’s just one useless drawn out scene after another until the end when order 66 forces the change in the GAR command structure.

Traviss is all about the Mandalorians – that’s her thing and she’s good at that. If you just want to read about the Mando – ok you might like parts of this – but it’s missing so many vital plot connections and links. So very much of this book just makes no sense it makes you wonder if anyone actually editted this book before it made it to publishing.

Baseball fans rejoice.  It’s that time of year again. But forget about kriffing corked bats if you really want to fry the stitches of a Rawlings — pick up a lightsaber instead.

Check out this neat little ‘jedi baseball’ vid :

Star Wars Dark Times #7 ..it just keeps getting darker December 28, 2007

This is one depressing series.

Issue #5 of course was one for the ages…this issue just add a bit more misery to mix. This series has real interesting guiding plot line…make the characters miserable…give them a little hope..take it a way and then do a double cross of some sort.

Bomo is getting more integrated in with the crew here and in the parallel story line the Jedi outcasts are making a home for themselves such that it is.

The only weak point is that this is the first issue in awhile not drawn by Doug Wheatley whose artistic style is without peer.

That’s not to say the art is bad (cause it’s not)..it’s just not the same.
