A thousand years ago the Sith were many and they battled endlessly with the Jedi Army of Light.

This is Star Wars meets Narnia, and is as such a comic for people who are not me.

I found the story crazy. Force sensitive kids who seem to be 8-12 years old are sent by a not so very wise old Jedi into war, where they have no business being and can only be a dangerous liability. Did he think they could be trained into Jedi in a crash course, with opportunities for lots of field practice in a realistic environment? It doesn't help that the words and actions of the two boys make them seem perfect

Star Wars Legends Project #37

Background: Jedi vs. Sith was released in 6 issues throughout mid-2001. The trade paperback came out in May 2002. It was written by Darko Macan with art pencilled by Ramón F. Bachs. Macan's other Star Wars comics include Chewbacca and an X-Wing storyline. He has also written and edited a variety of things in his native Croatia. In addition to a smattering of work on a grab-bag of random Star Wars titles, Bachs is best known for his work on Marvel's Civil War and Wo

I had no idea that Karpyshyn's novel was so heavily based off of... this. It's honestly kind of strange to read this while also reading his Darth Bane trilogy. And I will thank Karpyshyn kindly for writing Path of Destruction better than this, but also I know now a lot of the scenes from it were stolen (some of them even word-for-word from the comic). But is this comic any good? ... Not really. I wouldn't recommend it to really anyone. Writing the children as main characters had me a little unne ...more

On a backwards planet, there lived three children: Tomcat, Bug, and Rain. Tomcat dreams of being a Jedi, so much that when a Jedi recruiter comes, he signs up without hesitation. Bug and Rain come along to be with their cousin.
But on Ruusan, things aren't as pleasant as they always thought. The Jedi are weathered, perilously low on morale, and nearly defeated. In the midst, we see the rise of Darth Bane, the birth of the Rule of Two, and how fine a line separates the Jedi from the Sith.
I enjoyed

After finishing the Darth Bane trilogy I was suprised to find out that one of my favourit Sith characters was granted a comic.

The comic focuses on the last part of Darth Bane Path of Destruction, which is mostly battle driven but takes also the time to introduce charakters and giving them a charakter and personality. and also add new elements and origins rather then just to retell the book.

However, if you haven't read the book you will most likely don't unterstand the whole situation or some of

Dans l'Épisode 1 de la saga de Star Wars, on apprend que chez les Sith, il y a toujours un maître et un apprenti. Ils ne sont que deux. Cependant, il n'en a pas toujours été ainsi. Jedi Vs. Sith se passe 1000 ans avant cet épisode et raconte la dernière grande bataille entre les Jedi et les Sith. C'est aussi dans cette BD que l'on apprend comment la règle de deux des Sith est apparue. Une grande partie de la BD a aussi été fait en roman dans Star Wars : Path of Destruction, qui raconte l'histoir ...more

At least the Old Republic Era comics went out on a high note creatively, which I honestly didn't expect at all going into a book so dully named as this. Although it does suffer from having too many unnecessary characters that keep the important three or four from having real, fluid arcs in the second half. Speaking of unnecessary characters, the entire ship of satyrs and harpies were bafflingly unneeded and out of place.

This one threw me a little right off the bat, primarily due to the art style and the unfamiliar setting. Previous to this, all the Old Republic material I've read has had a certain look to it, while the work and designs of Ramón F. Bachs have an almost Mike Ploogian fantasy vibe going on. It looks great, just not overly Star Warsy. Once he hits his stride, though, and you get used to the art direction, "Jedi vs Sith" really starts to take off. Macan's script is interesting and shows a side of bo ...more

Not to big fan of countless comic adaptations of the Star wars world. Haven't read to much of it, but this one is one of the best I did read. A very nice drawing style, followed by a great story.

Good story, if a bit limited in scope. Would like to read further stories with these characters, but I don't know if any were written.

surprisingly good. great art work too

I was so excited for this 6 issue series. When issue 1 dropped, I was completely lost. It was supposed to be about Darth Bane, and he was hardly to be found.

Not sure how someone managed to screw up Darth Bane's potentially awesome story. They did. The art was average, and the story worse. If you want to know about Darth Bane, the Rule of two and so on, check out Drew Karpyrshin's (sp?) trilogy instead. But cast Kurgan era Clancy Brown as Bane and you'll love it alot more than this.

When I started reading this I was like "what the heck is this?". Not the typical star wars story, but for some reason I couldn't stop and read it quicker than any other. Nice to see Darth Bane too.

After reading the Darth Bane trilogy and then stumbling onto this graphic novel, I must say that this is a gem. Like Darth Bane? READ THIS! Visuals of certain characters and creatures helped me understand the story better. I loved this and hope others enjoy it as well.
