To me, the KOTOR comics were defined by the camaraderie between Zayne, Jarael, Gryph, and Rohlan. In this War arc, it's clear that John Jackson Miller was going for something different. Yet, it feels a bit too different. I loved KOTOR precisely because the ensemble worked so well. Here, Zayne is alone with a Republic crew captured by Mandalorians. There are some decent characters, and captain Morvis undergoes a profound change, but overall none of the other characters can fill the gap.
Moreover, Zayne himself is acting a bit odd. While it was always clear that Zayne didn't glorify violence, in this book he's a fervent pacifist. So much so that he hinders his own side to save Mandalorian lives. It just seems a bit too far a step for Zayne's character development. We never saw him nearly so averse to violence in the previous 50 issues of KOTOR. I think Zayne reaches an interesting place philosophically, but the series would have worked better if we'd seen Zayne progress to that state of pacifism, rather than just begin the story with him there.
Overall, War is still worth reading for KOTOR fans. It's Zayne and it's clear he's got more room to grow as a character. I just hope the next KOTOR series reunites the band;
