FCBD Star Wars SerenityI would first like to address that I was deceived. When I heard there was a Star Wars/Serenity comic book, the geek part of my brain kicked into overdrive, and I imagined a glorious crossover in which Han Solo and Mal Reynolds at first fought over the same smuggling job, butting heads and clever verbal jabs along the way, only to join forces against a common enemy with only their snark and their blasters by their side.

Alas, this was not meant to be, but, at least, such an extraordinary vision still sits in my mind.

Darth MaulWell, here it is. The moment we've been waiting for since we last saw Darth Maul's dismembered body plummeting into the pits of Naboo. Let me just say, it was worth the wait!

Star Wars JediI was never really one to get too much into the Star Wars comics, which is strange considering my obsession with both ¨The Wars¨ and comic books. You'd think it would be a natural fit, right? They just never really grabbed me like I'd hope they would. But, in an age of prequels and Old Republic, the universe has grown immensely, and the comic books have been exploring these times in the Star Wars universe. Say what you will about The Phantom Menace, but don't tell me Qui-Gon Jinn wasn't awesome. He and Darth Maul are what made that movie for me, and I had always wanted to know more about this mysterious Jedi.

Daniel WallaceThe following is an interview with New York Times bestselling writer Daniel Wallace, who is the author of the Book of Sith, a collection of writings by the Sith Lords throughout time.  


In this interview, Fanboy Comics Contributor Sean Foster chats with Wallace about how Book of Sith came to be, whether Yoda writes in Yoda-speak, and his favorite Star Wars character ever!  (Be sure to check out Sean's review of the book here.)


Book of Sith is NOW AVAILABLE for purchase on Amazon!

 

Book of Sith COVER"The Sith have existed in the galaxy for centuries, lurking, waiting for their chance to seize control. As various Sith Lords emerged and rose to power, they recorded their thoughts, exploits, and plots for Sith control of the galaxy. When they fell, their knowledge vanished with them forever. Or so it seemed..."

 
This was the synopsis given to me and the only information I received before reading this book. The less I knew the better, and it helped to make the read that much more of an enjoyable experience. There was a feeling of overwhelming excitement as I flipped through the pages, as if this was something my eyes should not be seeing. Maybe it was the fact that I was reading an advance copy of the text that was not yet available to the general public that added to that energy. Or, maybe that my entire life as a Star Wars fan, I've prided myself on choosing the Light Side over the Dark Side and holding this "ancient text" seemed somehow wrong. As if The Dark Lord of the Sith himself would come barging through my door any moment and force choke me for having such vital information in my possession. But, I am not alone as I unravel the mysteries of Sith lore. The Book of Sith has been in the hands of the Jedi for a period of time, and I was intrigued to read the musings of Master Yoda, Mace Windu, Luke Skywalker, and even Quinlan Vos scribbled in the margins of each page.

The Clone Wars deception image"All warfare is based on deception."



The lack of Obi-Wan this season was starting to take its toll on my fragile mind. Don't believe me? Read some of my previous reviews from this season, and you'll notice almost all of them mention the lack of Kenobi. Though I knew Filoni would never steer us wrong and with the reassuring words from the man himself, James Arnold Taylor, the wait is over and the first of a four-part arc has begun. It's Obi-Wan's time to shine and it's not at all how I expected it. And, that's a good thing...

"Our Actions Define Our Legacy"

We last left off with Fives and Jesse being punished for disobeying Krell's orders and are now facing court-martial and possibly execution. Man, this Krell doesn't mess around. Rex does his best to talk Krell out of his decision but only ends up making the situation worse. In Krell's eyes, his orders were not followed, and, if the Clones are not punished by way of example, then what's to stop other Clones from doing the same in the future. So, what does Krell do? Says to hell with the court-martial; bring on the execution!

"The Wise Man Leads, The Strong Man Follows"

** Spoilers Ahead **


The question is who is the wise and who is the strong? I'm sure Krell can be a great general, since he managed to secure the rank, but all I've seen is a jerk who sends out troops into battle, without a care in the world for what the outcome will be. Not very wise in my opinion. Rex, on the other hand, seems like the smartest guy outta the whole lot of 'em.
