Star Wars Legends Project #60

Background: Acts of War came out in 4 issues from June to September of 2000. It was published as a trade paperback in June of 2001. Several years later it was collected in Star Wars Omnibus: Rise of the Sith (my review). The story was written by Randy Stradley with art pencilled by Davide Fabbri. Stradley, a VP and sometime senior editor of Star Wars comics at Dark Horse, co-wrote the Crimson Empire saga, and also wrote a large number of the issues in the Dark Time
Shifting gears a bit, this time out we're visiting a setting a little closer to the events of the films. The Dark Horse Comics miniseries Jedi Council: Acts Of War takes place only a year before the events of Star Wars--Episode I: The Phantom Menace (that's 33 BBY, if you're keeping track). This story was published as a standalone collection, and reprinted in Star Wars Omnibus: Rise Of The Sith.

Before the galaxy was engulfed in the Clone Wars, transforming the Jedi into generals, they served to

I didn't finish it and I don't think I need too. The story was a little bland; there's trouble on a planet and the jedi are sent in like we've never heard that story before. I wouldn't mind so much if the ensuing plot was actually interesting and I cared about the characters. Like this jedi master dies but idk who he is and there's no reason for me to feel any remorse b/c there's nothing really special about him. Another thing I didn't like was the art work. It reminded me too much of a kid's tv ...more

I think the book wasn't that great.

First of all, there were too many characters (of the Jedi Council) that you can't really keep track of much of them. Worst of all, there's all the weird names, the names of the planets and the rebellious warriors, that I just skip reading the names. Can't they settle for something more simpler?

Plot wise, since when did a Jedi Council authorize themselves, ALL of them, to go and fight some tyrannosaurus rex lizards who can carry guns? It also meant losing a lot

La planète Yinchorri vient joindre la République que déjà sa population commence à causer des problèmes. Le conseils Jedi décide donc d'envoyer des émissaires pour régler les problèmes. Peu après le départ, le Temple Jedi est attaqué par des habitants de cette planète rebelle. Ce que le Jedi ne savent pas c'est que tous ces problèmes proviennent d'une manipulation secrète des Sith.

Cette bande dessinée est plutôt ordinaire. C'est souvent le cas pour ces BD qui ont été faites avant 2002. L'histoir

Overall the comic wasn't too bad. It had some good aspects and definitely added to the build up to the Phantom Menace however there was some quirkiness that I could've done without.
B. Reese
This was overall an interesting story that expands the pre-episode 1 context of star wars. I liked it, 3.5 stars. Overall, it's kind of a "jobber" story in that not much happens to the big names. Still, it's worth reading because it does show us a little more of what the galaxy was up to before episode 1. Not essential reading, but fun if you're looking for something decent.

Worth a read if you are already a big fan of the franchise but it might not have much appear to someone who isn't deep into the universe.

This is a filler story. It passes the time but not a particularly impressive story

Very average pre-Phantom Menace story in which nothing much happened. Disappointing.
