THE STORY:
20 BBY. Darth Maul's criminal Shadow Collective was becoming a new power in the galaxy until he was defeated and humbled by his former master, Darth Sidious (in Season Five of 'The Clone Wars'). However, Maul's allies rally and he turns his resources to aiding Mother Talzin of the Nightsisters in gaining revenge against Sidious by capturing Count Dooku.

WHAT'S GOOD:
Star Wars is often a story of good versus evil but it's refreshing that in this story it's two different evils going head to head. I enjoyed the counterpoint between Maul and Dooku (and to a lesser extent Maul and General Grievous) but even more so that between Mother Talzin and Darth Sidious. And on the matter of said villains, it was nice to see them actually being impressive for a change. 'The Clone Wars' in general managed to make both Grievous and Dooku seem rather pathetic, constantly being bested and forced to flee. However, here we see Dooku standing at Sidious' side as a fellow Dark Lord of the Sith and General Grievous actually reclaims some of the fearsome presence he had in the early Clone Wars stories (I like that it was him who delivers the final blow when the time comes). On a final positive note, I'm a big Obi-Wan fan, so I'm always glad to see him in action too.

WHAT'S BAD:
There are only two real downsides to this book. The first is simply that some of the scenes and in particular the dialogue clearly show the influence of having begun life as a script written for unproduced episodes of the TV series. Don't get me wrong, I like the TV series, but its scripting is often unwieldy and lacking in subtlety and some of that remains in this book.

This tells us what happens after the events seen in The Clone Wars Season 5 episode The Lawless, but it doesn't offer the resolution to the Darth Maul story we were promised.

It ends more ambiguously than the series. Still no resolution to Maul's arc. The points with Sidious were brilliant, just as with the series, but when we're introduced to a Jedi we don't see in Revenge of the Sith for a life and death battle with 3 other Jedi we know will survive, it becomes predictable as to who will die.

This is the first Star Wars comic I have ever read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to other fans of Star Wars, particularly those who have watched The Clone Wars.

Format: Paperback
There are good and bad pints to the miniseries. The good is that is staring Maul (yes I am a fan of Maul). The art work is good and there is lots of action as you would expect in any story of Maul and with Mandalorian backing him up. There are also guest stars such as General Grievous, and Count Dooku but the biggest problem I have with this series is there is not decisive battle between any other. The battles tend to end in a Stalemate with maul needing to escape before re-enforcements show up.

This take place right after Lawless of the clone wars series. The continuation of Maul's journey. After killing his brother and humbling Maul to remind of his place. Why leave Maul alive? Like of Darth Sidious' plans he has a bigger end game, even though Maul is no longer his apprentice he can still be his pawn. The story is good more but more as it sets up possibilities for the future. I would give this story 3.5 stars, but think it deserves a round up rather than down.
