The last issue of Star Wars: Darth Maul – Death Sentence ended with Darth Maul’s gleefully sinister grin at the prospect of fighting Jedi. Issue #2 picks up moments later, as we are thrown into the resulting battle. The incredible action sequences in this issue give the series an adrenaline boost of epic proportions.
After the battle, both sides are left to tend to their wounds. While the Jedi heal in bacta tanks and Darth Maul is rescued by the natives of the planet, they both gain the knowledge they need to continue their respective quests. The Jedi learn that Ja’Boag may not be the most trustworthy ally, and Darth Maul plans how to rescue his brother and take down Ja’Boag.
