REVIEWS . . .

Friday 5th November

[Thrawn] [] Thrawn
By Timothy Zahn
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

While this is definitely not one of Zahn's masterpieces, it still is a proper, if extremely uneven read. This is one of the long running series of books named after its titular character on which it is focused. While there were great books, like Kenobi or Dark Lord, there were also the pretty average ones like Tarkin.
What seems to be the problem, is that the NEW CANON seems to restrict epic writers like Zahn and Luceno, to a degree, that lets the reader feel, how less fun they have writing in the new ruleset. Both Luceno's Tarkin (and Catalyst for that matter) and Zahn's
Thrawn have great, amazing even, elements, that are too few among really boring and uninspired "coming of age/rising in the ranks" elements...read full review

[Darth Maul] [] Darth Maul
By Cullin Bunn, Luke Ross et al.
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

I really liked the old comic book Darth Maul by Marz and Dursema. The story was simply but sharp. The art was… well, it was art. Sharp, precise & perfect. Like Maul.
Maybe I did not like that book, I might have loved it, even. But this Maul, much more conflicted, yet equally precise, with a story slightly more complex and art less precise, but equally impressive, really had everything I loved about great Star Wars comics. Maul was a killer machine in the first prequel, but thanks to Filoni he became a character, and comparing Marz's great work with Bunn's, the same can be said. A great story with amazing art, which sadly is not a standard in recent Marvel Star Wars books.
One of the few recent must-buys!
